i thought i was going to start my new hobby of finger knitting, but when i got to hobby lobby and saw all the cute crochet hooks, i decided i would crochet instead. i love this bamboo handle crochet hook and the pretty wool i got! i'm attempting to make a scarf, but haven't quite figured out how to make all the rows the same size yet. hehe! but i can do a double stitch like a pro now. i'll show you the finished project if it's not too terrible looking.
i've also worked on another crafty project this week but it's a surprise for someone, so i'll have to wait until next week to show it you.

and i took this pic because my little snowmen in my mudroom just make me happy.
maybe we'll get to see some actual snow that sticks on the ground this week!
i'm off to make green chile enchiladas and to wash my icky hair. (is it just me or when you're hair is dirty do you feel yucky all over?!)


  1. How talented you are! Can't wait to see that scarf. And I know that other surprise will be so cute and appreciated....

  2. I'd love to know your recipe for green chile enchiladas! That is one of my favorite things to eat!

  3. I've always wanted to learn how to knit/crochet. It seems like such a peaceful hobby. (And the outcome...scarves, blankets, etc....very cute!)

  4. green chile enchiladas are super simple and easy! i use corn tortillas (white or yellow) and diced, cooked chicken. for the sauce, i mix canned green chile sauce and sour cream, and a bag or two of mexican cheese blend. sometimes i roll the enchiladas and sometimes i just layer tortillas, chicken, sauce, and cheese. cover with sauce and lots of cheese and bake at 350* for 25 minutes. top with more sour cream and salsa. yum!
