While we have been busy with the holiday preparations, I have snuck in a few minutes of tatting time. The "Romance" New Year pendant is coming along:
Still have a couple more outer chain rounds to go.
And I have been putting the finishing touches to some crocheted Christmas gifts, so my hands have been working overtime!
Speaking of hands- I found something at my local Walgreen's last week and LOVE it!
I have been using this on my hands and it has helped so much! As you can imagine, my hands take a lot of abuse. Working with thread, fabric, yarn, pine needles and such dries out and roughens the hands. Many lotions and hand creams are way too greasy for my taste, but the Carmex is creamy and quickly absorbed with very little residue. Walgreen's carries the "Healing Cream" & "Healing Lotion" and I'm sure other pharmacies carry it, too. Another plus is the scent- it is light and fresh, just like the Carmex lip balm.
I have not forgotten about the Christmas doily counts. They will be up before Christmas! Jim will be home shortly and I've not even started supper. I'd better get to cookin'! Until tomorrow~
