Surprise!! I am back!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Are you surprised to see my post on your feed???  I bet!!  I have been away from blogland since last year, May.  That was my last post at least!  I have been reading your blogs here and there, just not regularly.

I am not sure if I am going to start posting much but hey, this is a start, right?  

This is my first coloring of 2015 and my first finished card as well.  What do you guys think?  

I guess you guys want to know what I have been up to, right? Well, it's basically my usual story: kids.  The older one is in first grade.  The girl is in kindergarten and the baby will start pre-school this Summer.  The two older ones are busy on weekends with Chinese classes and swim lessons.  My daughter will start piano lessons soon as well.  So, as you can imagine, I am running around a lot, just like most parents out there.  

My mom is hanging in there and doing great!  She is slowly accepting her illness.  She feels and thinks a lot more positively these days.  She is going through a lot and staying strong even with the constant change of new medications.

While I was away from blogland, I crocheted and made jewelry.  I am currently obsessed with Japanese graph crochet.  That just means no written instructions but with diagrams. I am working on a lacy scarf.  It's actually my fifth one.  I love the pattern!  I have been hesitant about posting my crochet items here and have been thinking about starting a blog just for my crochet projects.  I haven't come up with a name yet. I am just not too creative with names.  Any suggestions?

Have a great one, everyone!  Thank you so much for reading!!

Waving hi to you from the midwest! Happy to hear you've been keeping busy with the kiddos and you've been able to get some crafting in. Hopefully you'll get the chance to post every once in a while...we all love seeing your projects. What a sweet card, the lollipops are the perfect addition and the LO is great!
