Fragment time!

} I love these Friday Fragment sessions cause today that's about all I can do is fragment a thought or two out there.

} I FINALLY got the navaho baby blanket done (if you click the pic it'll get bigger)! This thing was tricky - you had to follow the insructions to the letter and count a lot. For crochet, I'm used to getting a "pattern groove," get the first bit of stitches down and you can just repeat and hardly ever look down. Not to mention my great-grandma taught me you always have to adjust a pattern to get it just right. No wonder I never saw her make on of these! But Grandpa of the Baby Cherokee Princess is going love this! The colors, although seemingly strange for a baby blanket (with black), is their family's tribal colors.

} Spent New Year's Eve with my BFFs watching movies, eating lasagna-spinach dip-frozen turtle pie, and playing Wii! It was my first time playing the Wii. I'm officially hooked! I knocked out a few other players in boxing with the help of my Turbo Jam training, won a match in tennis, busted a bunch of beach balls on my segway, and led a parade around the fountain (leave it to me the drum major to find the marching segment on the Wii Fit!). And I got to thinking about the different foods that are traditional meals for New Years. I've always heard to eat greens and black-eyed-peas for luck. Anybody do anything traditional meal-wise? I found a cool article on Epicurious if you want read more about it.

} I've already slept-in with a headache this morning. But maybe, just maybe if I get up and try to get motivated the feeling to go back to a warm cozy bed would be conquered.

HAPPY 2010 Everyone!

May the Lord bless you and keep y ou. May the Lord show you his kindness and have mercy on you. May the Lord watch over you and give you peace.

Love these Friday Fragments! For more - go see Mrs.4444 @ Half-Past Kissin' Time:

The blanket is BEEE-u-TA-FUL!!!!!! That was some major work, but looks like its all worth it!!!

I've never been on a Wii yet... probably a good thing because I know I'd want one myself!

The blanket is awesome... I know how much trouble you had at the beginning... you should be so proud of that project!

And we'll be eating cabbage cooked with a dime. Whoever finds the dime will have goodluck and prosperity all year.

Happy New Year.

Love the blanket; I'm sure it will be a family treasure.

We don't eat anything special at all for New Years Eve, but from all I've read today, I'm thinking we should start eating Chinese.

Your blanket looks lovely! I haven't had enough patience to crochet anything that big.

I didn't have any traditional foods for New Years until I moved to The Netherlands, but they eat oliebollen (sorta like donuts, but not quite). I posted a recipe awhile back-

I love our Wii... we got a used one a couple months ago and we've been having a blast with it!

Gorgeous blanket - I can only imagine the work that went into it. They are going to love it.

I laughed right out when yousaid "leave it to me the drum major to find the marching segment on the Wii Fit!" I bet it was fun, too!
