Happy New Year!



Happy New Year, Dear Ones! I pray you all had a wonderful Christmas time and a festive New Year.


How nice to be back in Texas and not have to bundle up to go outside. Mr. Precious and I attended more Christmas parties this year than I can ever remember doing in the past. We had so much fun. It was just the two of us for Christmas, well, three with little Willow. But we love each other so and have so much fun together - it was a wonderful time together.

You all know I am pretty crafty so I just had to share with you what I've made.

My little grandson, Camp, loves Star Wars and my daughter asked if I could crochet him some characters. I've made so many things for my little granddaughter but not so much for Camp so she didn't have to ask me twice. I ordered a couple of pattern books from Amazon and went to town.

 These little figures are about 5 to 6 inches high. Here is Luke Skywalker, Princess Lea and Hans Solo. Now I've seen the 1st Star Wars movie but after that - no. So I didn't know half of the characters I was making.
 Obi Wan Kanobi, Yoda and Chewbacca. I used Willow's hair brush and brushed Chewbacca's yarn to make it look like he has fur. I could have sewn on little eyes but I just crocheted and some and a few eyeballs are a little wonky.


Here is a Storm Trooper and Darth Vador. There was no pattern for Darth Vador in either book so I had to make it up! Can you believe it? I don't know who the little green dude is.
 The robots! Again, no pattern for C- 3po or R2D2. I made them up too.
 Without looking at the pattern book, I can't tell you who these boogers are.



I know Camp knows who all of these little figures are but I made little tags and wrote their names on each one just to help him just in case. I did have fun crocheting these and am hoping Campie will like them too. 
It's after Christmas and he doesn't have them yet because we are going to take the Christmas gifts to them. I told you earlier my daughter and her family were moving from upstate New York. Well, they are moving as I type this to California! It will be easier for Mr. Precious and I to drive Kiki west instead of north. So soon my babies will have another Christmas time.


Then I got all smarty pants and decided to make a peg people Nativity! This was so much fun. Little baby Jesus and the lamb are little wooden balls. You can't see it here, but after I finished with these  I painted on a glossy coat of finish and the little Nativity looked much nicer.
 Well, bust my britches, I couldn't just stop there! No, no Nannette! I had to make a Santie and Mrs. Claus. They are pretty cute, don't you think>
 I saw some little winter peg girls on Pinterest and had to make some too. See how much better the little dolls look with a coat of gloss on them?
Then I finished by making these little girls holding stars embellished with flowers. I think I want to make some more peg people because - well, because it's just so much fun. I'm old but I sure do like to play.

Well, that's all for today and I'm so looking forward to 2020 blogging with you all!

Be a bunch of sweeties,

Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

 


You Make My Dreams


What I want you've got
And it might be hard to handle
Like the flame that burns the candle
The candle feeds the flame, yeah, yeah
What I've got's full stock
Of thoughts and dreams that scatter
Then you pull them all together
And how I can't explain
Oh, yeah
Well, well you
(Ooh-ho, hoo-ooh, ooh-oo)
You make my dreams come true
(You-hoo, you, you-hoo, hoo, you, hoo)
Well, well, well you
(You-hoo, hoo-hoo-ooh)
Oh, yeah
You make my dreams come true
(You make my dreams)
Come true
(You-hoo, you, you-hoo, hoo, you, hoo)

On a night when bad dreams become a screamer
When they're messin' with the dreamer
I can laugh it in the face
Twist and shout my way out
And wrap yourself around me
'Cos I ain't the way you found me
And I'll never be the same
Oh, yeah
Well, 'cos you
(Ooh-ho, hoo-ooh, ooh-oo)
You make my dreams come true
(You-hoo, you, you-hoo, hoo, you, hoo)
Well, well, well you
(You-hoo, hoo-hoo-ooh)
You make my dreams come true
(You make my dreams)
Come true
(You-hoo, you, you-hoo, hoo, you, hoo)

Listen to this

I'm down on my daydream
Oh, that sleepwalk should be over by now
I know
'Bout you
Yeah, yeah
You make my dreams come true
(You-hoo, you, you-hoo, hoo, you, hoo)
Oh, yeah
I've waited, waited for you, girl
(You-hoo, hoo-hoo-ooh)
Oh, yeah
You make my dreams come true
(You make my dreams)
Come true
(You-hoo, you, you-hoo, hoo, you, hoo)
You and me, you and me...

  4. Happy New Year! I am in love with your little figures -- both crocheted and peg people. So many things you could do with those pegs for all different holidays. Pilgrims for Thanksgiving, an Easter Bunny, a Cupid. Oh, you have inspired me. How nice your family is moving to California. So much easier to get together. Have a good day!

  16. If you only talk every once in a while, many users may become bored and look elsewhere for gratification. Posting too much is not a good thing either since many people will read it as desperation. Do your best to find the proper balance.

  17. Practice your elevator pitch. You need to be able to describe your products in just a few short sentences in a persuasive way. If you can't, you are missing a lot of micro-networking opportunities out there. There are lots of moments where this could make a difference, like waiting in a line or (obviously) standing in an elevator.

  20. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
