I am so sick of the snow it's not even funny. I can't wait for spring.
I am still working on the Seraphina Shawl. We have determined at Crochetville that I suffer from what is known as Crocheter's ADD. I cannot concentrate on just one project at a time. Then I wonder why I am all stressed out about completing items that I have promised to make. So yesterday, I packed up everything that I had started (with the exception of the shawl) and put it into a bin. I have sworn to myself (and my cats) that I am NOT going to open that bin until my shawl is done.
So now, I have been working on the shawl off and on all day. While doing laundry, vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom, taking the garbage/recycling out, bring the recycling/garbage bins back in, etc...well, you see where I am going with this...not alot getting accomplished on the shawl today.
Kainnon is off for his last snowboarding night tonight. Scott is having a nap right now. Tonight we are going to watch American Gangster. Maybe then I will get some crocheting done. Maybe!

Had a dr's appt yesterday then went to lunch with my mom. That was nice.
This is what I am working on right now. It is a Seraphina Shawl.
This is a close up. I just love these colours. The yarn is Bernat Berella "4". The colour is Terra Cotta Mist.
Yesterday I received the flannel squares that I won on Ebay. I am going to Edgerydoo them and then join them to make baby blankets. I have separated them into "boy" colours and "girl" colours.
I have also started crocheted for Crochetville's March Charity for the Blitz. In March we are donating to the Baptist Hospital of Jacksonville FL. I am going to be making baby hats and blankies. I am almost done my first hat with many more to come. Well that's it for now. Happy Crocheting!!
And remember, live for God's approval, not man's.

I received this letter from Casting off the Cold thanking myself and all the other women who contributed to Crochetville's January Charity Blitz.

Dear Tracy Jennrich,
Casting Off the Cold would like to thank you and each of your fellow crafters at Crochetville for your donation of all of these beautiful handmade hats, scarves, blankets etc.
It was quite an honour to us to be chosen as your charity for January, 2008. We certainly appreciate your generosity and the time all of you took from your busy days to support us. It is only through the help of wonderful people like you that we can make a difference for those in need.
We know that everyone who receives these items will be very happy and proud to wear them.
Many thanks, and keep up the good work. We hope we will be able to share more of your beautiful work in the future.
Thanks again and have a great year!!

Not much else new here. Just trying to finish the swap items and then back to charity crochet. It is nice to take a break from baby blankets, hats and scarves for a while and make something challenging.

We chatted about some ideas as to what charities we are going to be donating to. We had some tea and snacks and generally had alot of fun.
I need to do some internet research to find some contacts for donation drop offs in Aurora.
Uh oh, 6:00 pm...dog feeding time....more later.

Depending on the weather tomorrow, I am meeting with Sally from Casting off the Cold to hand over the Blitz items from January.

Crochet...I have been extremely busy crocheting for my charities. I have done 6 hats/3 scarves so far for the One Spirit Program in South Dakota. That is the charity that has been chosen for February. The packages are still arriving at my house from January's charity which was Casting off the Cold. Speaking of Casting off the Cold, I was contacted by the coordinator and asked if I would consider taking over Stouffville, Aurora and Newmarket. Of course I said yes. We make items for the homeless, as well as baby items for Project Linus and items for the shelters in the area.
Hopefully I can find some time tomorrow to upload some pics.
