Happy New Year!

It's a new year, the Gift-Giving crafting is over and now I'm back to daisies!

Remember this post?  A year and a half ago, I finished the crocheting on this afghan (the second one, with the two pink rows of border).  Here's my dirty little secret:  I hate weaving ends.    I love the colors, the planning, the crafting, but when the daisies get to the stage of needing ends woven, I stall. 

I have learned since then that I *must* weave as I go, because otherwise, what happens is this:  It sits and sits and sits.  My New Year's Resolution is to take the projects I have *this close* to finishing and get them done.  Out the door. 

So tonight, I sat and weaved some ends (while helping my high schooler study Ancient India and China.  Oh joy!) and I am happy to say that the afghan is ready to be washed and taken to the hospital.
