  1. No, the one is to tall. I can not longer reach the top without either going up on my toes or pulling it down. So I will discard the old one, by the way it is losing needles and put up the new one, which is 1 ft. shorter.
  2. The knitting needles and pin boxes are beautiful. I also am always losing my pins, so that is a great idea. Have you see the stands that look like pipe racks, but hold crochet hooks instead? You work is beautiful.
  3. Welcome to Crochetville from the Gulf Coast of Florida. Grab your yarn and hooks, put your feet up and sit a spell. We are always so glad to meet new friends.😁 That is one beautiful sweater.
  4. Beautiful day today and warm again. My day was made when the Washington Football team beat the Dallas Cowboys. That just made my day. So I finished up so give-a-ways this morning and got some packages ready for Shipping overseas. I forgot I have NO printer. Mine decided to die before Thanksgiving, so we had to buy a new one. I hope to get it by Wednesday. No big Turkey dinner here. We had sliced of Turkey breast, with all the fixings on Wednesday and yesterday we had Turkey sandwiches. I am not a big Turkey eater. Today is Pork Chops with scalloped potatoes, veggie dip and apple sauce. Well off to my corner. Have a great day.
  5. Thank you all. I am now waiting for my new tree before I can decorate it. I finally found a 6 ft. tree that I liked that was a good price.
  6. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! Well it was 67 when I got up and it will go up to 81, so anyone down here who wants to have dinner outside it is a great day for it. Sorry for all the families who can not get together today, but you can always do what my Mom use to do and that was keep an empty chair to represent all those who could not be there, then tell stories about them. Be thankful for all you have and enjoy your day.

  8. Spent the day getting ready for the turkey dinner. Got up this morning and made a pumpkin pie. Actually a Mrs. Smith. Then I started the stuffing. So instead of tomorrow, we had our dinner today. I am stuffed like a turkey. So sorry for your loss Lea. So many lost this year, either from Covid or other sickness. I am ready for my 1st of 2 vaccines. DH and I will be in live as soon as they are available. I am skeptical about next year and I will sit, wait and worry . I do not have a good outlook on it. Well, off to do the after Thanksgiving dinner thing. Have a good night and Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

  10. Except for the 18" doll everyone is put away with their outfits on. The big Pilgrim in the middle gets her dresses changed according to the holiday. Thank you all. I can not believe how fast this year is moving along.
  11. Just adorable. He turned out great.
  12. It is that time of the year, when Turkey's start to hide. No big gathering this year for any of us and maybe even smaller dinners. So I am showing my table for the Holiday and hope it gives you lots of memories and hopes that we return to normal soon.
  13. They are just adorable. I can feel your pain with messing up a granny square, but sometimes the mind and eyes work opposite of the hands. They will be well loved.
  14. They are adorable. Thank you for the link.
