    Debbie its hard waiting around for those calls. When mine finally started I got 6 all within a couple of hours. Hope your procedure goes well. Arlene glad you checked in. Goodness Katy wish my house was as clean and organized as yours. I need to get busy. Thats one bad side affect of getting your eyes fixed----you can see so much more dirt than what you thought was there. The big yellow bowl is the lone survivor from my mom and dads set that was a wedding present. Sis #1 has it now. Seems like the smallest bowl was blue and it made it for quite some time. Lyn I start to think my near vision is doing a lot better and then I come here and think well maybe not. Thurs I started feeling like I was coming down with a head cold / sinus infection but it must be allergies because it didnt keep getting worse. Your planter will be really pretty with pansies. Mary Jo hope you are having a good time watching football. I got to see KC's first half. Hope the new qb continues. I was impressed to hear that for his 23rd birthday last Mon he wanted to go watch 49ers game footage rather than go out and party.

    Thanks again Darski. Your second box arrived yesterday and I spent the morning unpacking it today. What delightful outfits, accessories and a beautiful African American baby doll. She is such a cutie.

I made a stuffed Santa that I am so completely not in love with but my youngest loves it so it's not a total loss..used a total of 2 skeins and 5 balls on that (+9). I made a gingerbread girl and used 2 balls there (+2). I made myself a cardigan and used 4 skeins and a ball (+9). And I have made the next section of the Myriad CAL and one of ten bonus squares to make it a rectangular blanket at the end...finally finished a skein on that (+2).

    I received the most wonderful gift today. A dear friend was so thoughtful and giving to think of me when she decided to de-stash her thread. Blessed is not even close to how I feel right now. My heart is full of love for her. 💗 Pretty sure I'll have negative numbers this week, month, year. 😊

    I love making baby items! This gift goes to my GD's BFF who is due with a little girl end of February. My GD is just as excited as her friend and is the little one's God-Mother. I look forward to gifting this set. It was fun to make and a stash-buster too. The only complaint I had is the pink was too close in color to the peach but, I was determined to use all yarn in my supply.

    Some local dignitaries attended the opening ceremony. I can also report that male guests admired my exhibited work! I don't have any pictures of the various arranged color isles and the showcases myself as the reflection of the glas was too bad with the camera on my mobile phone. Photos were taken by some Austrian newspaper photographers and will be published along with an article in the next few days. I managed to get hold of a few pictures taken by my brother which I am attaching here. Only one of my sewing thread motifs table centers is being displayed and one lady said: I thought it was made of plastic (I consider this as a compliment). Of course I was wearing my 600 motifs sewing thread shawl which wone first prize at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney this year. Now I am being referred as an "Artist" which I think, doesn't mean much in my country.

    I find the stashbusting CAL is useful but not foolproof sorry I missed this thread.

    Thanks. Last year a guy from our church had a really bad case if it, and so did a former co-worker. West Nile is no joke. I have been staying inside. Usually mosquitoes don’t care much for me but this bunch does. I got the second shingles vaccine yesterday and I have nearly every side effect listed. Sigh. The first one wasn’t near as bad. Every part of me aches, my arm is red and swollen, it hurts to walk and all I want to do is sleep. However, the pain actually keeps me awake. This has not been a very productive day. Still, it’s better than getting shingles! I am scheduled to work tomorrow, but if this keeps up I will be staying home.

    Here is potholder from Crochet World. I made one the pattern way, which was in the round and a gazillion ends to sew in. The second was done in 2 parts, less ends to sew in.

    This is very touching! I often "talk" to my pets who have left this world, as I do to family members and friends who've gone before me! If that makes me crazy, so be it--but it soothes my soul!!!!

    Denise thank goodness Mona sent you extra. I like doing c2c's but have a devil of a time judging yarn amounts and have wound up in your situation more than once. I have always wound up frogging back and eliminating a few increase rows to compensate. I had an even harder time on this striped one. Finished another lapghan for w4w.
