This year I blogged for the first time, started my own blog, joined facebook, crochet soiree, and crochetville. I follow several bloggers, but most important is that I've made a couple of great online friends.
I found a crochet designer that I really admire and actually went out of my way to meet in person while on vacation. She's become a dear friend also and her name is Tamara Gonzales. She does Tamara's blog on the Crochet Soiree website. I've started a group there for her called the Tantalizing Tamara group. We talk everyday and we've had swaps and contests and we're about to start a new project of Tamara's after the first of the year. It's a great group of people and besides being Tamara's #1 fan, I've made a very close online friend in Molly Wilson who has her own blogs here on the web, "Crocheting my best with my worsted". What a talented and sweet person and great friend to have.
With all my medical disabilities, I managed to survive back surgery. All in all I'm not going to complain too much about this past year, but rather dwell on the positive things such as crochet which has happened to me.
