I was thinking of putting together some scrapbooking projects into specific containers so I can just pick one up and work on it when I have time. By having it ready to go, I can work, put it back in its container and store it until I can work again. I will need to do it that way while we have the house torn apart for remodeling. I am going to put together some crocheting projects, too. Merry Carey, do you have your special Christmas afghan ready to start?
I'm working on a special one now. I hope I can finish it by July ...

LOL.....I'm sorry Seawaters! But It's just that when I went back and re-read the last 3 pages of posts after lunch, these posts jumped out at me as I pieced them together. I about busted a gut laughing so hard to myself, that I had to post them here so everyone can share in a laugh....LOL

Let us know how it turns out. Do you "do" Pinterest? I have LOTS of recipes on my boards.

When you say, "looked wonderful," was that because there was a photo or did it look like it might be wonderful? That will help me. It will also help if I know whether or not you use Pinterest.
