New addition to our family in February

First of all, I'm not pregnant. 40 and pregnant would not be funny especially when the boys are this close to graduating and starting their own lives. That would NOT be funny at all.

Instead, we're adding a sweet little fluffybutt to our family in February. Another Corgi girl...

We're pretty excited and can't wait to hear barking round these parts again. Its been a little over two years since sweet Mavis left us and we're finally ready for another furry friend. The countdown has begun.

BTW, local peeps: Anyone use a vet in Salem? Not sure I can go back Mavis' vet because of the memories. Might need to suck it up though because they were/are very kind, pet loving people.

I'm still alive though I don't blog much. I don't get many comments or clicks from the blog so I'm not sure anyone reads it anymore. If you want to keep up with what I'm doing daily, look me up on Twitter - theindigomuse . If you haven't already joined Indigomuse's Fiber Workshop, stop by for a visit and register today. January's online knitting workshop offerings and registration information is on the front page.

I've done a bit of spinning, loads of knitting and a bunch of designing. Here are a few of projects that have come off the needles recently...

If you click on the pictures, you'll get more details. I'm not even going to whinge about family, reminisce about the holidays and gab about much of anything self indulgent because I'd rather the energy be positively focused on the people of Haiti. The Yarn Harlot is sending up the knit signal and calling knitters to give again. Anything you can give is appreciated. Together, we can make a difference. Kiss your loved ones and tell your friends and family you love them. Today is all we have. Tomorrow is promised to no one. (((hugs)))
