    Hello Everyone! Here are few pictures of Silk Flowers arrangements I made for my home a while ago. Those flower arrangements are pretty big. I have no idea if you are interested looking at silk flowers or maybe not?. LOL Have a Great Weekend!, Krys

    Hello, my name is Isabel. I’m from Spain but living in the UK since 2016. I grew up watching my grandma crocheting blankets that she used to sell to earn a bit of extra money. When I was around 10 years old my mum started to teach me how to crochet and knit and I used to make some clothes for my dolls but they weren’t really good I must admit lol. It wasn't until I got pregnant that I started crocheting more focused and learnt different techniques and I made crochet clothes, dolls and blankets for my son and nieces. Nowadays I crochet every single day, I think it helps me to cope with the stress of life and I’m trying to make a stock for my first craft fair which is making me feel very excited and a bit worried in the same time as I have a full time job plus a family to look after and not enough time to make all the projects that I have in mind...😅

    Dorian is like the Halloween movies. It is the storm that will not die. Overslept this morning, as last night was a bad night for sleeping. The humidity is up so high, that they are giving a Heat Advisory for noon. It will be to hot and humid outside. Glad to hear everyone is ok Carol. It is always scary, when there is an accident. I had to laugh last night before the game. They had the whole family who own the Bears on, even the wee baby. So they all yelled let's go Bears. The littlest one started to cry. They scared him. Hey Brenda, Rogers looked like he did when he first started. The Bears defense was scary. If not for them, they would of lost a lot bigger. Ok, I am happy FOOTBALL has started. Have a great day.

    Lyn hope your power holds. This thing is just moving too darn slow. Carol glad son in law is ok but I bet he is sore today. Glad your grand daughter was not in car. A snuggly little boy how wonderful. The paper plates and plastic utensils will be a big help. Its wonderful that meals are being provided. Cant believe her insurance helps with meals. Katy unfortuneately the house has not emptied out. What is noticeably missing is the outdoor stuff. It just seems so much easier to go work out there. Guess its more obvious and easier to let it go plus we had people wanting it. Yesterday I repotted another tree, painted a couple of concrete gnomes and went thru several cat litter buckets with garden/soil stuff stored in them. I have more gnomes to paint and need to condense bonsai soil mixing components into fewer buckets. Our bonsai stuff takes up a lot of room. I dont think dh is being realistic about what all is going to fit in the new place which is frustrating me to no end.

    Good Morning Everyone. Brenda the baby is a boy and he is super snuggly. Mary Jo the gnomes are really cute. Lyn I hope you and everyone else in Dorian's path are safe. I slept better last night than I have in a week, so I felt pretty good when I woke up. My younger daughter and granddaughter had been here to visit yesterday and she text me that they were home safe and sound last night, she had put my granddaughter who was already asleep in bed. This morning she sent me a text that 5 minutes after she got home her husband called, he was in an accident, he's ok. So my daughter had to take the sleeping little one out of bed and put her back in the car to go get my son-in-law because the car had to be towed. My little granddaughter slept through the entire thing. Apparently the other driver failed to yield while making a left turn. I've discovered that no matter how old my kids (daughters, son-in-laws, grandkids) are there is always something to worry about. The new little guy has to go meet his pediatrician today, he saw the hospital pediatrician before he came home. I need to go to Walmart I thought I was buying swaddles for the baby the other day and bought the wrong thing so they are going back and I'll get the right thing this time. I also want to get a supply of paper plates, cups, plastic utensils so dishes are less work for a little while after I leave. People at the church have arranged to provide dinners for my daughter for several days and then her insurance is suppose to be sending some meals. My son-in-laws parents are coming to visit today too. Ok enough rambling. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

    I've started making these for charity and discovered they needed a little change! So, I revised these booties for three reasons: 1. the sole ridge was hard for many beginners to do, so I left it as optional. 2. I felt the foot opening was too wide, so I made it smaller. 3. I designed a cute cuff that works for boys or girls. If you need to see a picture, look for the original thread titled "best ever booties". sorry there is no picture here as I am blind!
