Long Time, No Posts

My goodness, it's been a while since I posted.  I've been down in the dumps and just recently started feeling a little better.  I blame the worst of my depression on a medication I was taking, called Topamax.  Stay away from that stuff!  A doctor put me on it to help me lose weight and instead I nearly lost my mind.  Bad medicine.  I called the doctor myself and asked to be weaned off of it because the effects were scaring me.  Glad it's all behind me.

I've picked up my yarn and hook and started working on some Christmas gifts for my siblings.  I don't know if any of them follow my blog, but just in case I won't mention what it is I'm working on.  There are a couple of cute patterns I'd like to try though.  Here is one: it's a Mickey Mouse granny square.   This is a free pattern.   http://startingchain.com/mickey-mouse-granny/?utm_source=stc-stc&utm_medium=social-fb&utm_term=092515&utm_content=link&utm_campaign=mickey-mouse-granny&origin=stc_stc_social_fb_link_mickey-mouse-granny_092515


This second link is a paid pattern on Ravelry - I purchased it because these little boots would look adorable on my grandson.
