  1. Maybe I need more coffee... but I had this picture of the shrimp you will crochet and the Barbie outfit... and some one throwing the shrimp on Barbie... In my best Aussie voice, throw another shrimp on the barbie off to drink that 2nd cup, I'll be chuckling all day

  2. Here is a batch of mini Christmas stockings for Warmth for Warriors. These were crocheted using the mini BLO stocking pattern and the cuffed stocking pattern. All about 6 inches long. These are all packaged up for shipping along with 6 hats for this year's drives for W4W.

  3. This Dahlia blanket has been like chewing on a piece of liver. Not sure why--it's an easy 4 row repeat with lots of pretty colors. But I've been working on it for 3 months. Finished it up today just in time for my friend's birthday tomorrow.

  4. Stingray This project is moving forward. I'm waiting on some paracord to close the island/ocean bag and that will be complete. I've started the ocean tower, which is supposed to be a bag corral reef type toy. Still making the little critters to live there.

  5. I finally finished off the island bag playset for the ocean/sea project. It only needed the cord locks but I'd never used them before so they kept staring at me mocking me. Yesterday was the day. Island Play Set

  8. Coca Cola bottles out of the cooler in front of the little store! And.....Dill Pickles! The little mom & pop corner grocery store had the biggest dill pickles in a jar for 5¢, same as a candy bar price. The owner would get out his trusty tongs and pull out a huge pickle. Thinking back, I wonder if the tongs were ever cleaned. Ewwww!

  9. For a wearable like a baby jacket, I'd get some matching sewing thread and darn the unruly ends on the wrong side (inside of the jacket). Would be much cheaper and undoubtedly more durable, comfortable for the baby, and certainly washable.

  13. Well, I'll be doubled dipped! Looks like the topic was blocked somehow. Go figure. My Dr. appointment went well yesterday about my bloodwork. The doc and I were pleased with my results. However, Sunday night as I sat down for dinner with my family, I went blind in my left eye for about 30 seconds. Then got a headache on my right side shortly after. Now I'm set for a CT scan and a appointment with a neurologist. Always something lately. I'm optimistic since I've been perfectly fine since then. Blue skies here still and 84° today. My kind of weather! Enjoy the day.

  14. I finally finished the Attic 24 Dahlia blanket. It's for my best friend's birthday tomorrow. She always grows zinnias and I thought of her as soon as I saw this pattern.

  15. The under the sea is just great. Right now my hook is quite, but I hope to pick it up soon. I thought I had a pattern for an octopus, but it is a small one. If you find you want it, it was a free pattern. Just give me a shout with an e-mail or pm.

  17. The whale is cute. I'm working on the same idea as you for a set of sea creatures for my Grt-GS. So far I've printed out 6 patterns for the set and I'm in search for just the right octopus. For only 4 years old, he's very picky when it comes to accuracy. He's amazing!

  21. Good morning! Cindy, your Sophie is gorgeous! I love the colors. This week has been paperwork and sinus infection. I was supposed to have the grands today while DIL went to the dentist but she's under the weather too and had to reschedule. Not sorry about the change since my energy is still lacking and the antibiotics are causing the usual stomach issues. We're headed into a week of cooler weather, but I'm not complaining. Hope spring lasts quite a while and doesn't jump into summer too quickly. Hoping for some crochet time today.

  26. Hi Krys- I haven't had a chance to test out yarn/thread sizes for this octopus yet. Too many life altering things going on and finishing up the afghan. I do thank you though for always being so helpful.

  28. I just wanted to post these pics. I can still do doll clothes eventually. these are for a friend to whom I donated a bunch of my 18"dolls . I just make a skirt over an elastic waistband and then use my old patterns to make tops. not quite up to my old standards but I've been assured thatlittle ones don't care LOL

  29. Happy Mother's Day! Ratdog, sounds like you had a great day. We're considering attending Disney's Boo Bash in the fall, we haven't been there since before the pandemic. I was planning to take my dad for his covid vaccine today, but checked the website again yesterday and they are closed in observance of Mother's Day. He has to start his vaccine again because he was in the hospital when he was suppose to get the 2nd dose. He wants to stick with pfizer since that's what he had the first time. My little granddaughter might becoming to hang out today but no definite plans for the day. My

  30. Chris Love the mermaid and Reni that is a cool octopus. If you don't want to go down to thread, try size 5 or 3 cotton. They will bring the size down. Usually with size 10 thread, it cuts the size in 1/2. I have not looked at mine lately, but I think the 5 or 3 cotton uses a B or C hook or even a D. I have 3 packages to go out. I just have to get them packed up. Have a great day.

  31. It might be Sewline Fabric Glue. Tip: No matter what brand of fabric/sewing glue I've tried in the past, including this brand, it leaves a stiff, bumpy residue on the yarn. I steer clear from it. Weaving ends back and forth 4-5 times has always worked great for me.

  32. I have no idea what glue that might have been but this article might help you decide on a fabric glue.

  36. If it weren’t for dh I wouldn’t be able to have it. I mostly organize, plan, do a little raking...lots of rest breaks. Container gardening would be the most I could do. Just about finished the cap just need to close off the top. Much hotter today and less breezy. Looking at starting Blooming Azalea doily in a little bit. Have a nice Sunday.

  41. Welcome to the 'ville, and what they said ^ In spreadsheet and programming software an asterisk is the multiplication symbol, but it's inexcusable to use an asterisk in a crochet pattern to mean anything other than what it has meant in crochet patterns for well over a century -- the beginning point of a repeat. Nowadays you might see a version of row 3 as: "Row 3 (1 sc, inc) x 8 (24)" While still not conventional this is easier to interpret because 'x' is commonly understood to be the symbol of multiplication, so "(1 sc, inc) times 8".

  45. We are getting several days full of April showers----every 2nd or 3rd day. Temps are swinging to the cooler side and snow word in the long range forecast but there is time to make that disappear. Mona they released the video on stocking the lake with fish. They dont want people fishing yet and when they start they want to do catch and release for about a year. They are gradually opening things up. They get to do golf league this year and the golf carts are back. No golfers on the green behind us yet as they are redoing it. Prayer shawl group met Tues for first time in over a yea
