  2. HAPPY THANKSGIVING to one and all. May your day be filled with love and laughter. Now remember no Politics today at the dinner table. I am as ready as I am going to be. With just the two of us it is Chicken breast with all the Thanksgiving trimmings. We even made our own Cranberry dressing. Have a great day everyone. Now on to breakfast and a day of FOOTBALL.

  5. Very pretty. I agree it is to pretty to use as a dish cloth.
  6. Hi Everyone, It has been a busy day. Went to the store, thought I would beat the crowd, to get the last of the stuff needed for Thanksgiving. Boy was the store crowded. Thank you all for the compliments on the totes, but I think it is coming at the right time. I guess I am not feel so bad that this is the last one for maybe a while. It is not that I am tired, but I could use a break from the pressure of what colors and who. Krys, that is the main reason. I am running out of people to give it to. I just have the pocket to make and it is done. Brenda, I am proud to show mine off, first because you made it and second because you did the pocket without a pattern. Off to watch some TV and maybe make a dishcloth. Have a fun night.

  8. I love the addition of the long legs on your Santa. Your fireplace is just beautiful. So sorry to here the fuz ball is still not feeling well. Enjoy your trip to Vegas.
  9. Good Morning. The weekend ended with a big bang. The Eagles kicked Cowboy Butt. YEAH!!! Ok, now for the tote. I still have a closet and 6 draws full of cotton yarn. I thought about stopping after they changed the logo, but I was told we would also keep the old one. The main problem is that except for those who already have one, no one seems interested in this tote anymore. I have run out of who to give them to. So unless I can find someone for this one, it may go to someone who already has one. I will miss making them. I can not believe it is almost December, which means I have to get my act together to start working on my charity stuff soon. Up at 4:30 this morning, so I know I will start dragging soon. Have a fun day.
  10. Just adorable hedge not are cute.
  11. Here is the free pattern on Ravelry It is called Robbie's Angel. I have made it several times. They use a size 7 hook and size 10 thread. They are really easy to make. You can also make them with granny squares also. It is 4 rows. They use a 3/4" to 1" plastic ring.
  12. I told them no Christmas talk till after Thanksgiving. When I hear the whispering, I know it is Christmas talk. Sure come on down.
  13. Thank you. The turkeys are placemats. I made them a couple of years ago. They sit on my kitchen table as a display.
  14. Now I have finished the angels for my give away. Here is what they look like. I have also finished the Little Brave and you can find him here. The last is Ami Ville. Someone asked for a picture of it so here is Ami Ville Thanksgiving Well it is cool this morning, almost time for the long pants. Going down to 51 tonight, so we are getting close to winter. Off to make the, yes I am going to say it, Last tote. I will need help in who to give it to. If you know anyone please let me know. You can see who got one here. Have fun today.
  15. Yeah Brenda I saw the pattern and that is one of the ones I used. I was not happy with the crocheted one, but I did make it anyway. Here are the pickles. The one with the hat is the knitted one. The little ones are made with size 2 yarn. The glass ones you talk about, is what they say were hidden in the tree.
