Bored....

I've been feeling very bored lately.... don't ya just hate when you feel bored? I think it has something to do with it being winter and it being all gloomy outside. Mind you, I live in California, but none the less it gets pretty cold. Ok well cold for me. When it hits 59 degrees or below...I suffer! My bed looks something like the bed from "Princess and the Pea" with me being the "pea." I have layer upon layer of quilts and blankets on my bed... Anywho, enough complaining :-)
I was thinking I need a crochet project to work on during this long-long horrid winter... First things first though, I am needing a basket to hold my yarn, hook and the pattern for whatever I chose to make. I've had this basket forever, which in itself is rare. Yes, its been in the pile to be donated to the thrift stores a few times only to be pulled out at the last minute. I recently painted it white, and now I'm liking it! So, I committed myself to keeping it... and made a fabric insert for the oval basket. Now, I'm just needing to find a crochet pattern to mindlessly work on to take me into summer~

Cheryl, it seems so strange for You to Say "BORED".... I almost wanted to laugh (sorry) I guess Idle Hands are Not for You....
I really did chuckle about you saying your Cold at 59 degrees & below ~
I live here in Michigan, a COLD State in the Winter, but where I live (upper flat of an Old 1917 House) I have only 3 Heat vents that come from the Couple who live below me, they control the Heat(and pay the utility bill- so I am NOT complaining) ~ they keep the register at 70 On a Good Day, it is 62 up here, the Kitchen is about 55 & My Storage / Work room is 45...... All winter Long I get chilled,, but after 3 years have adjusted........for an early Christmas gift, My sister did bought me a Presto Heat Dish, which between that & My SNUGGIE, I am Toasty - luke warm.....
Have a Very Merry Christmas to You & Your Family
I look forward to Your next great Project~

Really, you're bored? I haven't been bored in a while, but you have my sympathy! I know yours won't last very long! I loved your Santa photos -- thank you for sharing!
