Hello & Welcome
to my 34th episode of the
KWH iPad Show!
Today’s feature is our decorated staircase…
crafted over Christmas &
cheering-in the New Year 🙂
Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone!
Well here we are, one week past Christmas and finally posting my decorated staircase … LoL … Honestly, some people really ought to get their Christmas knitting act together and start stitching as soon as the stores start their seasonal displays!!! Ah well, it’s all fun and I’m not feeling a bit foolish for posting ’em late 😉 Far better to be squeeking-in with this post before the stroke of New Year’s, than suffer the hang-over of waiting ’til next year!
This year’s Christmas staircase theme colours include: red, green and white with spindles wrapped in icy blue eyelash yarn. The tree is one ball each of fleece/eyelash yarn. The large heart on the tree is red eyelash yarn…. Gotta say, I ❤ that eyelash yarn! These were part of my birthday yarn stash purchase from Herrschners. The candles are red crochet (wedding gift) doilies, with flames knit of fancy-fluffy-puffy golden yarn from a friend. The various garlands are knit from Bernat Boa, Lily Crafter’s Cotton (discontinued) and Bernat Christmas Tinsel worsted cotton… Ooooh, plus one furry strip of Baby Monkey ultra-soft yarn… Adorning tree ornaments include: 1 green wool Heartfelted Bramble♥tini Loop Ornament + 2 red/white fleece Sweetie♥Knit♥Hearts + 5 green wool Hearty Links with Felted Loops + 2 i-Cord candy canes. The tree topper ribbon is from an embellished Ferrero Rocher gift pack. That white loopy thing below the ribbon is just me playing with plarn (plastic yarn)—spun on my drop spindle.
And finally… the lovely crochet snowflakes and charmed stitch markers (also pictured separately from last year’s post) were gifted to me last Christmas from Angela aka “Wish I Were Stitching” WP blog… Thanks again, Angela ❤
Then today, technically ending the year off right, we popped into our nearest Apple Store and bought a much needed flash drive… It’s charging now! And am I ever looking forward to unloading my overstuffed iPad of nearly 9 months worth of blogging photos!!!

Tonight is New Year’s Eve… Hard to believe it, but another year is drawing to a close. Every year, as fast as you can wish your neighbour “Merry Christmas”, it seems we’re packing all the lights and decorations away for another 11 months.
My oh my, 2012 has flown right by…
quick as a wink, in the blink of an eye!
But tomorrow is the beginning of a brand new year… a fresh start… another year brimming with possibilities, the promise of opportunity and good cheer. Tomorrow is another chance to get the job done. And perhaps best of all… tomorrow, as always, is only a day away!
My heartfelt hope for 2013, is that our world will see peace. My prayer, from this particular speck of space I occupy on earth, is to help that happen. My immediate plan is to enjoy a quiet evening at home with my loving husband ❤
And so, I take today’s opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year! ❤ Jackie

so that you overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
