    In sept. our thoughts turn to fall. It is not far now and soon the hot sun and humidity will be gone. Growing up we always went back to school the day after Labor Day. Till 9th grade, we went to school with everyone in the neighborhood. Our grade school was from kindergarten to 8th grade. We then went, on a bus, (scary) to the middle school for one year and finally back on the bus to High School. From 9th to 12th we made new friends from all over the city. We lived in a small section of Camden at the end of the city and our town along with another was originally built for the workers of the Yorkship Ship Yard. One of the ships built there was the Kitty Hawk in 1967. Now I am showing my age. Growing up in this small section of Camden, we were almost our own town. Labor Day, meant a parade and speeches in the center of the town, or the square. It also meant shutting down the street and having a party to celebrate the end of summer. This month’s tote is made with Peaches N Cream Chocolate Ombre’, Dark Brown and Orange. The pocket was Aunt Lydia, Ecru, Fudge Brown and Melon. I have added a nice wigglie hot pad to match the tote, or did I match the tote to the hot pad? Tot #138 Fall Splendar. More Pictures

    Good morning. It's shaping up to be a gorgeous day here today. It's been a gloomy, cold, rainy week, so this is a nice change. Our power came back on around midnight. We had not hooked up the generator to the house, as we knew it was expected to come back well before morning. We were still up, but Dh would have run an extension cord from the generator to power my Cpap if he needed to. Joanne, your poor step daughter. I wonder why they cancelled the buses already? Maybe because of the traffic? That's scary, and you and your Dh must be really worried. I saw that a lot of flights were already cancelled as well. The news showed pictures of people sleeping in airports because shelters were full and their flights were cancelled. It's hard to even fathom how scary this is, because I am a born and bred northerner and hurricanes are so far outside of my experience. We have tornados, and while they can be scary and very dangerous and destructive, there isn't all this anticipation and uncertainty before they happen. Generally there are only a few hours of advance warning, although sometimes weather conditions are such that there is a longer warning period. Tornados come up quickly and pass by quickly. Judy, great pictures. Glad you had a great day with Ally and her mom. You must be enjoying the doilies if you are planning to make some for yourself too. Marlene, it's too bad your place in Texas was damaged, but it sounds like it can be repaired. You are blessed to have a great friend to check it out for you. I'm sorry you are missing Maya so much. I suspect she misses you too. Hope you continue to feel better everyday. Prayers for the baby too. Mary, I hope you get to see DD and family this weekend. LeeAnn, wow, you keep busy! Between your job and your Etsy shop, I'm surprised you have time to sleep. I hope ds is doing well. Judy's doily making made me decide to share this. My husbands grandmother made this. Sh died when he was a small child, and had made this long before that. It's at least 75 years old, and just over 5 feet long. Sadly, no one wanted this when she passed away. My mother in law had it in a drawer and gave it to me when she moved into assisted living. The stitches are beautiful, tight and even.

    Thank you so much for the beautiful gifts. I love the colors in the tote. If I were not too old for trick or treat, it would make a grand container for that. Thank you for thinking of me. Louise

    These are this weeks stockings. Mailed these scarves and hats that I made last winter to PRR. I did add a flower to one end of each scarf since there are multiples of the same color.

    I know this is knitted, but I thought it was ok to post here. This is a kit from Mary Maxim called Trick or Treat Doll Kit. I still have to make more Trick or Treat bags. Next will be the Thanksgiving Dolls. I have that pattern in both knit and crochet. They are a witch, ghost, goblin, pumpkin and cat.

    I have been watching Harvey's advance also. The wind is bad enough but those predicted rainfalls just make me sick to my stomach. We have had historical flooding here the past few weeks with half that much rain. I hope everyone in its path stays safe and that it somehow weakens. I have been working on little stockings for w4w and hotpads for my niece. And Katy please stop by on your way to or from Mary Jo's and give me a hand cleaning and organizing here too.

    Oh, derp. I looked at Magiccroochetfan's first link and then at the picture below the description of the (blue) pineapple one, and the pic was the swirly motif one. Probably because the blue pineapple one didn't have motifs, and then when I saw the swirly motif pattern I forgot it was supposed to involve pineapples (Yeah, that's my story and I'm sticking to it ) . Totally overlooked her second link which showed the right doily/ghan with all the flowers among the pineapples, including starting with flowers. Very sorry for the confusion!! Agree that it would make more sense to make the first flower, then join all the rest around it as you go.

    Hello, Yay! Mary Jo is back! I am so glad you are back and you and Tampa Guy are doing ok. Brenda, those are very pretty squares. I went to church this morning and then stopped at the grocery store, shelves are starting to look a little fuller. I also stopped at Joanns for some sewing supplies. The piles of debris on the sides of the road seem to be getting bigger each day. We got the official word, schools in my county will be in session tomorrow. I heard they are letting residents back into the lower keys now, it is going to take years for them to completely recover. I guess that's about it for me. Have a great day everyone.

    Hi Everyone, We are still ok. The storm is in the Keys and is back up to a CAT 4. We are not expected to see it till later tonight. The last time we had a scare like this was 2004 with Charlie. He was coming up the coast heading right for Tampa when it turned in and landed at Punta Gorda. No more evacuations. We are west of Tampa in that little piece that sticks out. Everything is in the house and one of the neighbors that was leaving yesterday, asked us to take his bbq and gas. So we now have something to cook on. We have good neighbors. As long as we have electricity, we will try to check in.

    Hi everyone!!! I am very happy to report that the blanket from hell project I was working on, I've finished!!! So happy to be done with it and I'm attaching a picture just because lol! I used a total of 7 balls and 2 skeins with this (+11). I also completed a blanket for a member of my church that had been started by her grandmother who has since passed. She gave me the blanket with a skein of yarn attached to it, which I completely used up in finishing the blanket, so it's a wash with the points lol. I'm starting another Josefina elephant pillow for the same family friend the frustrating blanket was for, but I've just started it and haven't used anything up yet. WTD: +11 YTD: +340

    Mary Jo dh keeps asking where does Tampa Doll live? He has been/is really concerned about you and Tampa Guy. Yesterday they showed the traffic around Tampa on the news here. Then he asks if more of you are in FL so I tell him about Carol and remind him TurtleLvr is in Daytona. I also reminded him about his distant cousin that we met after she retired to FL. I think this will be her first hurricane. We wish Irma would just wear herself out before getting any where close to any of you. Heart to Heart is packing up units to head out and wait in GA with medical supplies and personal hygeine kits. Katy my niece's cat and the neighbor's Boston Terrier both had respiratory issues. One of their main triggers were those plug in air fresheners which I dont use. I try to be careful with scented stuff and chemicals as I have problems too. Its been a horrible allergy season for me this year. Mucinex is my best friend. My eyes have been so gunky its hard to see and some mornings they were stuck shut til I rubbed or washed them.

    I made 4 of these Bunnies for my 3 Grt-GD's for Easter and forgot to take pics of all of them. This one I kept for me- Babsy Bunnie. The others were named Betty Bunnie, Bridgie Bunnie and Birdy Bunnie and all had a different color ribbon. Little Grt-GS received a fluffy little lamb named Laddie Lamb. I asked my GD to send pics but, she keeps forgetting. I used RH-Soft and a H/ hook, but no pattern, just winged it. I didn't stuff them tightly to keep them squishy and soft. They're about 15" tall.

    I am so glad you like the tote and stuff. I did not tell the girls, but I also added this doll. I wanted to keep that as a secret surprise. I knew you would find the perfect dress for her. Enjoy your bag and may it always be filled with WIPS

    Nice set Darski!! I don't think I have seen you do a skirt before. I guess with so many people in Houston (and other parts of Texas), I suppose it will be a bit easier to find a place that will need dishcloths and other household things, so I might focus on that kind of thing for a while. But for now, I give you hats 28 and 29. The red, white and blue is Micheal's low end CraftSmart brand and the grey are mill ends that feel like Caron Simply Soft.

    Our is electricity back. It went out about 7:15 this morning and we did not get it back till 10:15. No AC, no TV, no internet, no phone and worst of all NO COFFEE!!!! 2 transformers blew and work me up, they are so loud when they blow. It is a big BOOM!!! Great on the walking in the mall. I use to do that in ours and believe me you have plenty of company. Lots of people use the mall, as the ground is even and you have the security guards around, big plus down here is that it also has AC. Spent the morning working on the princess afghan. Today it is Cinderella. Everyone have a great day. I hope to have pictures of the tote tomorrow if it stops raining.

    Hi, Crochetville Members! Whether you visit Crochetville every day or infrequently, we thank you for being a valued part of our community. We also want to let you know about some changes to our Terms of Use. Social Media Sharing Since Crochetville's beginning in 2004, there have been many changes to the use of social media on the internet. Blogs and websites have added social sharing buttons to their posts and pages, making it easier for site visitors to tweet, share, like, pin, etc. Site visitors frequently share content without checking a site's sharing policies. Because of these widespread changes in internet user expectations and behavior, we must make some changes to our Terms of Use. Similar changes have been made by other crafting community sites, such as craftster.org, crochetme.com, and other sites managed by Interweave Press. Our new policy is: To reach crocheters beyond the Crochetville community, Crochetville staff, users, and site visitors may now share some of the contributions you've made to the community on social media sites. By posting content (including but not limited to images) on Crochetville, you agree that Crochetville and our site members and visitors may share it on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and/or any other social media outlets that may come into existence. EXCEPTION: Complete patterns can not be shared outside of Crochetville, although a link to the pattern and pattern photos may be shared. This policy applies to all content posted on June 1, 2012, and afterward. If you have uploaded images or other content in the past and wish to remove this content as a result of the policy change, please do this before August 1. After August 1, 2012, all content posted on Crochetville may be shared on any social media site. Please pin, like, or tweet your favorite Crochetville posts. (Don't forget to link back to the post on Crochetville.) We love seeing your favorites and sharing your amazing work with others.

    PRIVACY POLICY EFFECTIVE 11/20/09 Your personal privacy is very important to us at Crochetville. We do not sell, rent, give, or otherwise divulge your personally-identifiable information (PII) to other parties outside of Crochetville administrative staff. Please read our privacy policy for more information on how we use and protect your personal information. We want you to have a clear understanding of our privacy policy.

Any non-registered member is able to browse the majority of the Crochetville forum site (with the exception of several members-only folders) with anonymity: you do not need to tell us who you are or give us any personally-identifiable information about yourself. Once you register an account on Crochetville, you are no longer anonymous to the administrative staff.

    First of all, a big thank-you to those Crochetville members who do their best to follow our forum guidelines. Our guidelines are designed to help our large community run smoothly and provide an enjoyable experience for all our members. If you aren't familiar with our guidelines, please take a few moments to click on the previous link and read through them. Unfortunately, in a community this large, there are going to be some members who violate our guidelines from time to time. Some violations may be because the member hasn't taken the time to read the guidelines. However, all members are responsible for knowing and following our guidelines. Sadly, other members choose to violate our guidelines on purpose. Remember, the guidelines apply to all aspects of Crochetville: posts on the forum, private messages, and emails that are sent through forum services. We rely heavily on our members to notify the administrators whenever they notice a potential forum guideline violation. Here are some simple instructions to follow when you want to report something you find troubling: Reporting a post: To report a post, just click on the little white triangle outlined in red that appears at the top right-hand side of the post. The forum will send an alert message to the admin team. Reporting a Private Message: Please *forward* the PM to me, AmyS. Forwarding preserves the "electron trail" that serves as proof that the member actually sent the PM. (Just copying and pasting the PM into a new PM you send to me will not work, as that type of information can be falsified.) Reporting an Email Sent through the Forum: This email will arrive with a statement that you've received email from a Crochetville member, or something like that. Please *forward* this email to me at amyshelton AT crochetville DOT org. (You should be able to click on that link to bring up my actual email address in your email program or you can manually turn it into a "real" email address.) Don't worry about reporting something that may end up not being a violation. We'd rather receive too many reports that end up really being nothing than NOT being notified when there are true, repeated, serious violations of our guidelines occurring. Because of the volume of reports we receive, we may not be able to respond to your personally. However, be assured we do follow up on each report we receive. You can also rest assured that all reports are received in confidence. And don't worry that someone will immediately be banned because you reported them. If it's a first offense, we'll just gently educate the member about the problem with what they've done, and ask them not to do it again. In the case of repeated offenses, a member may lose their forum access privileges. But in that case, the loss is a result of THEIR continued actions and not as a result of another member "tattling" on them.

    Oh Mary Jo I am so glad you are okay. I know how you feel about your electric being out for so long. A few years back we were with out it for a whole week. The heat doesn't make it better. How in the world did the people in the olding days live??? They never got a really good break. I am so thankful for technology. Glad to have you back with us. You were missed!!

    Hi Ladies, Judy, Cute hats your making. Your new project will be lovely. Joanne, Your DD will love her new apartment. Cindy, I hope things calm down for your nephew. It's just awful in Houston. Mary, Six blankets of the same pattern, you go girl. LeeAnn, It sounds like busy times at your house. We have seen pictures of our place and are park. Our trailer is there but it looks like some of the blocks are missing. Our shed is still there, minus 1 door. The canopy we put over the trailer is gone as are almost everyone else's. I feel we are luck that is all we lost. It could of been much worse and it was. We had two rv's tipped over. One was a fifth wheel turned over onto it's roof. One trailer tipped over on it's side. I posted pictures on facebook of our place and our park. I had a heck of a time getting home after being released. My car battery was dead and had to be jumped. Yes we just bought a new car. Have to have that taken care of. My oxygen battery I was told had two hours of life. An hour from home I ran out of oxygen. They gave me a tank for an emergency. It last about three hours and I used one of them up. I called my brother and he and my sil came to my rescue. He was prepared to give me an extra tank. The oxygen company came gave me an extra battery pack and an extra tank. After I gave him no choice. I called hubby and he met me at the store on my way home so he could pick up the few groceries we needed (I needed his muscles, water, milk and etc). We went to taco bell for about 20 minutes as I was worried about running out of oxygen. Lo and behold less than a mile from home and I ran out of oxygen. I don't understand why the battery packs are not fully charged. Obviously someone sitting at a desk job could multi task this simple job. I will be suggesting it. I met DD yesterday and picked Maya up. So glad to have her here. She will go home this weekend. She starts school on tuesday. I will miss her. The summer sure went fast. We are going to sew a pillowcase a friend shared the directions with me. Have a good week everyone! I am feeling better.
