Happy New Year everyone! I hope that it is going well so far!
I must admit that I have not found my groove yet. Towards the end of the year my daughter got a stomach bug. She never shares, but she decided to share this time. So I got sick first and then my husband. It was the kind of illness that lingers, you think it is gone and then it comes back again. We were quite tired right before Christmas and that is when my sister in law showed up with her husband.
We were well at this point, but this was the start of a bunch of travel for us. We went to Bavaria for Christmas Markets and Castles. It was awesome, but a lot of time in the car and a lot of time walking around.
We were still tired. I thought the few days we were staying home around Christmas would perk us right up, but they didn’t. We left for Vienna still tired. But we love Vienna and we had a great time there and made the most of the cold and windy weather.
We were there for the New Year’s concert by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. We won the right to order tickets in a lottery they have back in February so it was a big deal for us to go. I can’t wait to get to Vienna again:)
So this hopefully explains my absence from Chibi Like Ewe. The end of the year is a busy time for everyone. This is our last winter here so we tried to make the most of it with lots of travel.
In crafting news, I managed to finish my 12th pair of socks for the Desert Vista Dyeworks knit along. My sock drawer is so happy right now:)
And I finished all the gifts I was making for teachers.
Now I am just trying to get into the groove of 2016. I have had a lot of nice things come in during these weeks like a ton of yarn and my Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery kit!
My in laws have gone back to the states. My kids are back in school so today I am going to try out my 15 minutes of different crafts. It may not go well and it may not last, but I think I will have fun in the process!
