Wishing you a Happy New Year

I've been busy with the holidays, snow and losing power.

I've crocheted a scarf for Anna but forgot to take a picture.  I've baked bread and such.  No pictures though.

I've finished my book and it will be available as an ebook in the new year.  Here's a rough draft of the cover.

365 Day Challenge Day 101 Red Velvet and Brocade Scarf

After re-doing the Onyx and Black glass bead bracelet (it looks much better) I completed another Xmas Present . Only 1 more to go. I am so stressed. Anyway it's for my husband's auntie L. This thing gave me trouble!!. The brocade kept slipping and I had to rip out stitching 5 times!! I hope she likes this and uses it, because the fabric was not cheap. hehehe.... We're giving the butterfly bracelet to his mom instead. Husband said it's too pretty for the intended recipient. LOL he's a mess.

365 Day Challenge Day 100 Hat in Khaki

I crocheted a hat for myself with my Khaki coloured Chenille yarn that I got on sale :-)

My baby girl modeled it for me LOL. Yes it's just a tad too big!

Day 100 Bacon Wrapped Chicken on a Stick

Last night I made bacon wrapped chicken on a stick!!! This was before I finished them off in the oven! Mr. C said it was his favorite meal and it reminded him of one of our favorite restaurant, Shiraz. (Shiraz however has super healthy food and you would never find their chicken kabobs wrapped in bacon, LOL) I had 6 slices left over from a recipe I made and needed to be used ASAP.

WOW yesterday as day 100 YIPPPPPPEEEEE

Last Friday I went for my 1 year MRI repeat of my brain. AGAIN I ended up with a massive migraine Friday. I had the headache all weekend. My Imitrex injections didn't even phase it. Today it turned into a regular headache but I have a feeling it is not through messing with me yet. UGGGGH

365 Day Challenge Day 99

Scarf in Barley and Fisherman for my husband's uncle

The tree that my son chose yesterday. We went small this year. We've never had such a small tree. Those tall big trees are just too much. It may still be crooked but I wanted to have it ready for when the kids got up in the morning.

Off to bed I go @ 5:30am

Day 91 Red Thai Curry

I got a Red Thai Curry - Chicken with bamboo shoots from the Temple of Thai. I made some modifications to the recipe. First I substituted some lean beef steaks that I had bought for stir fry. I also added sauteed onion and bell pepper. I also did not have Thai basil and I left out the sugar. It turned out SUPER yummy!!!!

Onions, orange, and yellow bell pepper prepped.

Sauteed beef, onions, and peppers.

Measuring out the other ingredients.

Finished curry I definitely recommend this recipe and I give it 5 out 5 stars!!!

Now back to crocheting and watching movies! I just finished, "The Next Best Thing"...which always leaves me hating Madonna and forever loving Rupert Everett!!!

Day 89 & 90 Polymer Clay Sweets

This one did not come out how I pictured it but I was trying to make a conversational heart charm.

Newest addition to Guurrrl Sundae, "Pink Bubblegum Large Ice Cream Scoop Charm"

Day 88

You know my Christmas tree is 'sweet' so I thought I'd try my favorite candy - Ribbon Candy - with some pearlesque fabric I had in this pretty little stripe - so Its 2 layers thick and then I punched holes with my rivet punch and strung a little ribbon through knotting in between each fold and then I added a jingle bell to the bottom :)
