I'll start on a sad note I'm afraid, just to get it out of the way.

I'm still working on some crochet strawberry keyrings, which I'm quite excited to finished now that the key chains have arrived and tomorrow I am off to my local yarn store first thing to start a secret project. Shhhhhhh!

Until next time.
