Life is better

 On January 1st I started the annual New Year SAL project.  This time we picked a small, easier project.  I managed to get in done in January as well which was a change (lol)

Boxing Day 2021 Start: Blueprint

 Boxing Day has turned into a new SAL start over the last few years; in fact Henna mandala was the SAL start for 2020.

For 2021 we decided to start Ink Circles' Blueprint for the rainbow city

I started and worked on it Boxing Day but haven't had much time yet.

Catching up with Henna

Catching up with Plum

 I have made some progress on Plum pudding over the last year.  Still not done but finally over half way; I would like to see this done this year.

Mystery project revealed

 This summer I decided it was time for a feline companion.  Basically I was getting tired of talking to myself; one of my cousins had a barn cat who had kittens in the spring and they were ready for a home.  My parents were nice enough to agree to house train the new kitten and take her for her kitten exams and fixing at the vet we used way back when I was a teenager.  She is all grown up now and acting like a teenager so she has been shipped home lol.

In July

Sylvester in December

As a thank you, I decided to stitch them a little something.  I decided on Bent Creek's Kitty cat row.  Mom has decided to have it finished as a pillow which I will start working on soon.

Welcome to 2022

 And just like that it is a new year.  How quickly December seemed to go by.  I did two online classes in December; clearly bad timing.  I managed a short visit with some family and my COVID booster shot.
