Maybe it was the holidays approaching, or the ending of another year. Maybe it's because my mother's health has been deteriorating more and more these past couple months. I can't quite say why, but I've been quieter than usual.
I haven't been hooking much either. A bit here and there when my hooking circles meet. I haven't felt any great inspiration lately, but I am trying to gear up to work on this lovely antique adaption of the E.S. Frost sheep:

I hope you all had a happy and healthy holiday season. My Tuesday hooking pals were over to my house in December to see my numerous Christmas collections and give a little holiday cheer. Here they are, hooking along in my family room. What a great bunch of women.
