A personal Christmas gift
This past year, I've spent a lot of time reflecting on life, trying to figure out where I fit in and what my purpose is. I think we all go through that process from time to time and it's a good time to look at what we've been blessed with, appreciate what we have and think about how we can be better.
Last Christmas, I watched as my sister and her family all struggled with the thought of losing her brother in law. He was in his 30's and had been diagnosed with cancer. They weren't sure if he would make it through Christmas and it was such a hard and sad time for them. My heart hurt for all of them! He was married and had a teenage daughter and some younger kids. I can't imagine the heartache and emotions they were dealing with.
He was determined not to let it get him down and pushed through for his family until after the first of the year.
December's new crochet pattern releases
The new Pebbled Archway Reversible home decor crochet pattern collection has quickly become another one of my favorites. I love the feeling you get when you walk in a room and see a comforting afghan placed across a couch. It's even more wonderful with coordinating pillows! What could make it even better? How about all of the pieces being reversible?
Each week through the month of December, I'm releasing 1 crochet pattern from this set. The Pebbled Archway Reversible Bolster Pillow crochet pattern was released last week and can be found HERE on my website. This week, is the Pebbled Archway Reversible Throw crochet pattern. This is such a great way to add a splash of color to any room! I hope you'll enjoy laying with color and working up this collection as much as I did.
