    granny squares for those that need them jan 2018

    Big to you Carol. You remind me of my Mom. She use to sew everything. I did not buy cloths till I went to work, then she would look them over and reinforce seams and such. She always made our costumes when we were little. I am sitting here watching Fox & Friends and they have the outside fixed up like a farm in the fall with mums and such. It is really pretty. Going to be quite here today. Everyone have a great day.

    Love the hat and the afghan. The weather here is about 92 degrees and the humidity is up we are waiting for some rain here or maybe there or maybe over there. Well the batter is good for about 2 more years, but they were not happy with some of the readings. We had to go back and get blood thinners and he will see the Dr. next Wednesday. Hope the thinners work. They worry about blood clots. We will just have to wait and see. The tote has been picked up and on it's way. I am really happy with this one. Off to shut down, as it is getting dark and late. See you all tomorrow and have a good night.

    Crochetville Tote #143

    Thank you all. It is now on the stoop waiting to be picked up by the Post office. I promised to start with clues today, so here goes. OK, remember the rules if you know the state it is ok to tell, but If you happen to know who it is, pm me do not say it here. Clue #1: Second (even though they think first) largest state in the Union.

    Good Morning. Up at 6 this morning. Pacemaker clinic this morning to see how much longer Tampa Guy's battery on the pacemaker will last, before it has to be replaced. I will be back later to give the clues for the tote. Have fun have to go.

    To Encourage Everyone in Making Gifts for 2018

    Judy I use to love the shore in the fall. In fact we use to take a week on LBI and just relax and enjoy the beautiful weather. We use to also do some surf fishing in Beach Haven. Boy I do miss that. Good Morning. Wanted to drop in and tell you all to check this out. A little cooler today, but still going into the 90's. Have fun today.

    Good Morning. Check this out. A little cooler this morning, cause of no humidity, but still going into the 90's. Got ugly sweater #2 kit from Herrschners. Got 20% off and free shipping. Can't beat that deal. Got all my stuff to give out for the Hobgoblins. Yeah Mold and Mildew is a big problem down here, with the heat and humidity. Yeah, the house at times needs to be washed and also the eves under the roof. Have fun today.

    Crochetville Tote #143

    I had this cotton yarn and thought it might be great for a tote for the fall. I did not have a name on the cake, so I can not tell you. I think it was falling leaves or mountain something. I know it was the old P&C. The outline and handles are celery. The pocket is copper with cream colored writing. Now I have no name for this, so have fun giving ideas. By the way we have had Autumn Leaves, Falling leaves as two totes. Let's not forget the Harvest Angel who's dress matches the tote and a wiggle hot pad. I am hoping to get this out tomorrow. So have fun till I start the clues.

    Good Morning, Sun is not out yet, as it was 5:30 when I got up this morning. Wow snow already and cool temps. Well, the mold and mildew is all gone from the pool area and my furniture out there has never looked so white. The guys did a great job. I have not gotten the error message, but I am finding some of my post missing. Oh well, just another day at the Ville.
