It was worth it though!
It's almost February already, so I decided that it is time to get back into the old blog!! I've had too much down time, I'll try to not let that happen again.
I also decided to bring back my "Freeform Friday", at least that's one thing I can start on, as I have been madly crocheting jar covers, for some old jars and empty bottles that I have, as I'm sure most of you also have ...
