I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Merry Christmas 2007

Welcome to Christmas 2007 and to the close of a another great year. Here is my toast to the Holiday Season as we sit down to opening presents. We had some Panettone and coffee for breakfast. Panettone (Milanese: panetton classical orthography, panetùn other orthography) is a typical bread of Milan, usually prepared and enjoyed for Christmas and New Year around Italy, and one of the symbols of the city. Maltese nationals are also traditionally associated with this sweet bread.
This is a view of our Christmas tree before the opening of gifts, and before all the fun began lol!

We had some Puppies , and a Bear (made by Naomi )You can see the three Kings watching over the presents. I have two gifts that I will finish by the Three Kings days, or Epiphany, and I am working on them still. I did not have time to finish them due to wrist pains, but it will all work out.
So here are the puppies, Bu and Budder, time to let them loose and keep unwrapping presents. Some came from Big stores, some came across the country, some came from local stores and some where hand made. I got a beautiful Red cashmere scarf. I will have to go and get some nice cash-merino yarn and make a new Christmas Hat for Christmas 2008, but I will finish it to be able to wear for Thanksgiving 2008.

There were presents of all kinds and , presents for the house. Chocolates, DVDs, Music Cds. Clothes, shoes and I now have the complete Set of Deep Space Nine series on DVD so I am very happy. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (sometimes abbreviated to ST:DS9 or DS9) is a science fiction television program that premiered in 1993 and ran for seven seasons, ending in 1999. Rooted in Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek universe, it was created by Rick Berman and Michael Piller, at the request of Brandon Tartikoff, and produced by Paramount Pictures. The main writers, in addition to Berman and Piller, included show runner Ira Steven Behr, Robert Hewitt Wolfe, Ronald D. Moore, Peter Allan Fields, Bradley Thompson, David Weddle, and René Echevarria.

You should never leave puppies alone, this is the end product, lol. Thanks for allowing me to share with you my Holiday pictures. May your Christmas be full of Joy as well. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Holidays everyone, the puppies are very cute and , red cups are very elegant in my opinion. Christmas is about bright colors and this cup is definitely red. It is made in China so have to use it sparingly, it may have lead in it, I am serious. This world is insane Happy Holidays everyone.

Happy Holidays Andy, it looks lovely!

Jaye said...

Looks like you both shared a wonderful holiday together - yay!

As for your comment here regarding the lead in the cups made in China...um...I have to say I completely agree with you and unfortunately some people are starting to think I'm a little bit overboard with my thinking on this lately, but I sure don't want to take chances where I don't necessarily have to :0)

Wishing you all the very, very best in the New Year, Andy!
