  1. Today
  2. The beauty of cooking for Thanksgiving is we don't generally have to cook much for another week with all the other left overs. 36 degrees with a potential of a high of 38 today. I don't mind because its bright and clear not dark and wet which it can be in November. We did get a dusting of snow but only enough to make it seasonal. Got second session of pickleball in this morning. Signed up for full Jan session. They won't be offering week to week in the New Year. That's fine. It was hard in Nov and Dec to schedule. Next week is our last session even though there are 2 more for
  3. Good morning! Sunny here and in the low 70's all week. Usually by now it's much cooler, but hey, this is Arizona! I'm waiting for DD to get here to help me with the major housework. Then the GS is stopping by for coffee and pie. He's so grateful for the 4 day weekend from work and school. It's nice to hear so many enjoyed the holiday and your dinners. I too am "turkeyed out". Turkey sandwich for lunch yesterday, then, leftovers for dinner. That's plenty for me. I hope GS will take all the rest of the meat with him since I only like turkey breast, and then not much at that. DD's here
  4. Bgs, love those 'stinking cute' hens, the pecking ones are made in a direction I never would have thought of (tail to tummy).
  5. I haven't used the product in years. I too assumed they made a safer formula. I wonder if it smells as bad as the first one.
  6. ok all for right now i think those are most most recent, i dunno, lol do so many they all seem the same somtimes lol
  7. well my goodness huh i feel guilty having such a nice thanksgiving now lol but we did..

  10. Good Morning. 53 and maybe getting up to 68. Sun is shinning and not a cloud in the sky. Maybe I will do some changing of the table today. Have a fun day.
  11. Can't wait to see the pile of boxes. Glad the kids are back to doing the work. Watching a hockey game the Lightning is playing the Kraken. Yeah you read that right. We are winning. Oh by the way, Games yesterday were perfect. Dallas, Chicago and bad was the Lions losing. So am shutting down now.
  12. This one has been on my to do list as a hotpad. https://www.freepatterns.com/crochet/for-the-home/kitchen-decor/chicken-towel-topper I think these are stinking cute. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/255-chickens-decor-or-potholder https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/067-lady-chicken-potholder?buy=1
  13. This one is double thickness. Its made in rounds and folded. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pot-of-jewels Seems like I made a similar chicken one 4 lifetimes ago. Definitely pre internet and I have no idea where the pattern came from and doubt I have it. Then it could be a deal where I found one looked at it and then made several. After those I remember just winging it to make chicken toaster covers.
  14. Working on Xmas projects.. Current goal to use yarn from home only no yarn shopping.... Now my budget for added accessories for example chapstick--hard plastic silverware is under $40... Step 1-see what things I had first that I previously had made that is stored in like the 60 boxes in my house that I could use / giveaway for Christmas gifts... Step 2 ---Started working on *Scrubbies & a few washcloths *Utensil pouches * Hand sanitizer holders * Chapstick holderholders Humane society ** Blankets for their cages
  15. I like the last 2 'German' potholders, but they are only 1 layer, which I might trust for a trivet but not a potholder. I was assuming the OP's version was 2 layers like the others, but then again those weren't shown opened up. And I just realized I said DC for that one, pretty sure it isn't, I'll go fix my post.
  16. Yesterday
  17. I may need an intervention. LOL I already had two yarn orders coming, 2 skeins and 3 skeins for a scarf/wrap. Now I've ordered 6 more for two pocket shawls. I really need to stop looking at patterns. https://www.yarnspirations.com/caron-crochet-color-block-pocket-shawl/CAC0126-030925M.html https://www.yarnspirations.com/red-heart-cabled-edge-crochet-wrap/RHC0126-028748M.html All that will put me at -49. I'm going to a "knitting" retreat next weekend, but I don't think I'll be using up that much yarn. LOL
  18. Dont know if these would help. https://www.redtedart.com/how-to-crochet-pot-holders-for-summer/ https://www.etsy.com/listing/584358612/pattern-only-henny-penny-potholder?ref=shop_home_active_5&epik=dj0yJnU9NjVLRnhsMURad2dNVW1ia3FVSjM0NW9aaEtWMEQyUUMmcD0wJm49bXplTHIxUW5lSTJwT1d4WmFLcDFyUSZ0PUFBQUFBR0doWENz https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/german-potholders https://mangotreecrafts.net/ribbed-potholder-free-crochet-pattern/
  19. I can't find a pattern for exactly these items, but I'm pretty sure I know (in a general way) how they are made, if you are OK with an fifty thousand foot overview not a pattern. I'm going to make you do some homework, since you have the item you can count stitches better than I can from a photo. First: I would NEVER actually use any of these potholders; they are made in US DC and the stitches are to gappy IMO to be safe. If you want to make and use them anyway, be sure to use cotton not acrylic; acrylic won't melt, but it gets ugly (I have a couple of double-sided acrylic trivets tha
  20. Dinner turned out well and we had a nice visit for dessert. It worked out much easier. Boxed all the doll donations today so we can drop off on Friday and man we made an amazing amount of stuff this year. When I have the boxes in a place together I'll take a pic for everyone to see. I'm still waiting to see how DH is going to fit them all in the car. He's an amazing packer so we will have to see how he makes it work. This morning I started the day switching out the outdoor garden flags and the metal holiday garden stakes I've been collecting this year. I was thrilled to find a t
  21. Hi y'all- I was rummaging through a drawer at church this morning looking for a dishcloth and came across these 2 dishcloths/hotpads and this fantastic vintage chicken. I believe the hotpads are some version of a granny, but I can't wrap my head around how they might be constructed other than knowing they are double-layered and sewn together. As for the hen, I am hoping someone recognizes her. My husband and his aunt both have a chicken fetish LOL! Would be a perfect gift if I can locate a pattern. Thank y'all so much for your help, I know you are a smart bunch and can
  22. My Joann order came today....4 skeins for hats........-8.
