Putting it all Away!

Well the Christmas holiday has come and gone for another year. We have all been enjoying the time off from work and school spending the days being lazy and playing with new toys & gadgets.

I couldn't stand the mess from Christmas any longer though so I spent the day yesterday finding homes for the new gifts (cleaning out closets and cabinets) and taking the tree down. It rained all day so we didn't get the outdoor decorations taken down but we still have a few days left of vacation so we'll get it done soon.

With the mess all picked up maybe now I can take some time to read up on the new camera that I got so I can figure out what all the settings are for. It might take me some time to get it all down in my head but I can't wait to try it out.
Something else that I can't wait to try out is my new punch needle set. I picked up some weavers cloth the other day at JoAnn's so all I need to do now is pick out a pattern and get started.
If I get bored with that I can pick up on the afghan that I began a few days before Christmas. 
What do these colors make you think of??
Did you guess Neopolitan Ice cream?
That is what I think of everytime I work on it.
Well that's about all that's going on in my world.
Just enjoying some down time with the family.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year!

Love the colors of the afghan but I would have to think of something else it reminds me of. I would start craving Neapolitan ice cream.

I can't believe you are taking Christmas down already! I feel like I just got mine up. I'm not ready to take it down yet.

Love your afgan colors! It will be beautiful when you get it finished. I too need to take some time to figure out my new camera. So far I'm liking it!

The afghan is looking wonderful and yes it does look like Neapolitan ice cream.
Enjoy the rest of your week and hope you have fun with the new punch needle!
