I would like to take this moment to thank you all for being here. 2015 ended off on a bad note for me. I missed almost the whole last month from being sick and I feel like I ignored my crochet, blog and friends. Sorry. I am back but, I am still sick and always in pain, but I am hoping for a better 2016 and, with this CAL I am sure I will!!
