Help!

I've fallen on the couch and I can't get up.

happily hooking away

I'm held captive by a warm quilt and my hands are tied with crochet thread.

I desperately need to go to the grocery store for food and there are several loads of laundry to fold and put away, but the only thing I seem to be able to get up for is more coffee and wood for the fire. It's a good thing my husband is off for the next five days. He can pour the coffee and get the firewood. Teasing. Sort of.

And just in case you're getting sick and tired of crocheted strawberries, here's another little project that's keeping this happy hooker busy.

they are in love

Finger puppets. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law, as I see them in single crochet. I love them. There are more finger puppets to share once I free myself from the couch.

Happy New Year!

  12. You never fail to amaze me. The bearded brother-in-law puppet has so much personality that he made me giggle.

    Hoping that 2010 awards you plenty of time on the couch. Happy new year, my new friend.

  15. Stay put, if you know what's good for you! Laundry has a way of tying itself around your ankles and not letting go... Now I KNOW I want 'learning to crochet' on my 2010 goals list!

  18. I love your tip of the hat to the life alert button. That commercial always makes me smile. With all of the crocheting you've been doing lately, I wonder... how are your hexagons?

  19. Ah - I know what it's like. I am the same at this time of the year. Just want to sit, do something small and drink - in my case- tea!I love this peaceful time of the year. Those puppets look very pretty. Any tutorial around? Wishing you the best for next year and sending you greetings from Germany
