Happy New Year 2014

Three French Hens! ©booksandbuttons

Well, what would YOU have done with them?  Imagine the surprise, to put it
mildly, when fond family opened this Christmas packet and found three strange
knitted something-or-others.  This is the group that sent to me the instruction
book of Twelve Knits of Christmas last year:
Twelve Knits of Christmas 001So I knit up the three French hens and sent them out to them this year.
It’s great that they sent me the photo of what they did with them.  And I know
you’ve been wondering what you would do with such a gift.  (Be kind here . . .)

In the meantime, Christmas has been roundly celebrated by all and sundry here
at our house and s-i-law started a little puzzle–cheery little wooden one, but
tricky–because although the pieces do fit together, they do so kind of loosely.
They sort of hang together, not snap in place.  I finished it up last night and
it’s called The Arcade.  We bought it from Lands End years ago.

Isn’t it a sweet puzzle?

No need to make resolutions this year.  I have plenty left over from last
year.  That will save time today.

Wishing all a bookish-and-buttonish New Year!
