Happy New Year 2014

Three French Hens! ©booksandbuttons

Three French Hens!

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!
