As you can see, I'm still not quite myself (thanks for the pic, Haley!). I feel like my head weighs as much as a city bus due to congestion. This means that I have not been able to be on the computer much to reply to emails, join in all the reindeer fun, or do some actual crocheting.
Fortunately I have managed to write my piece for the "Crochet Connections" column (if you are a CGOA member with Internet access, this column is part of the eNews you receive), and I have been doodling various concept ideas for the Helping Hands Auction that will take place at the Conference this summer -- pretty much stuff I can do laying down.
I've also been entertaining myself by enjoying a new Crocheting & Tatting booklet published in 1916 by Coats & Clark I had won from an ebay auction (yes, I know it's not NEW, but it is NEW to me, and it totally rocks!), as well as reading various crochet books dating back to the late 1970s that I had borrowed from my local library last week. And sleeping. Yes, lots of sleep! This should teach me not to gloat! :\
