  1. What cute pictures. Foggy seems to be the call of the month so far. It does burn off when the sun comes up. Hope to have my monster done today. I have a special project I want to work on. It is thread, and I will show when done and delivered. So have a great day.
  2. I am collecting so many patterns I want to do in C2C. I love them. One Dog Wolf, has all the Chinese Zodiac in C2C Panels. This is the year of the dog. Well, the sun is in my corner, so I can't sit there. I am trying to watch the new Spider-Man, but boy is he annoying. Toby Maguire (Sp)?) was so much better. Ok, off to see what trouble I can get into. Dinner tonight is a pizza with mushrooms and a garden salad. As Tampa Guy says, "No Meat Today". Every Friday during Lent, I eat no meat. We grew up doing this. No we are not raised Catholic, but my Dad was, so Mom made sure he kept up with all the No, No's in the religion. She was more worried than him. We grew up Methodist, so in other words, if it is fun they do not do it. Have fun today.
  3. Hi and Welcome to Crochetville from the Gulf Coast of Florida. Grab your yarn and hooks, put your feet up and sit a spell.
  4. I have looked all over and even on Treasured Heirlooms. They are the only ones who had it, but it is sold. If you can I would get the DVD that Bailey4 talked about.
  5. Good Morning, Linda sorry to hear about the MIL. God Bless her at 97. Carole love the outfits. I do hope we get to see pictures of them wearing them. Thanks Brenda, now I have something else to put on my to do list. Lots of fog this morning, but it has burned off and it is getting warm again. Got on late this morning, as I was looking for a pattern this morning and it took a while to find the one I want. I have to get back to my monster, before the sun shines onto my spot. Have fun everyone. I am watch the Olympics, nothing good on TV.
  6. Good Morning. I have the Olympics on now. I was thinking last night, that our biggest worry (in the 60's anyway) was getting out of school and getting a job. I remember in grade school (1950's) going into the basement of the school, during a drill, kneeling down and facing the wall for air raid practices. Things have changed so much and not for the better. We are still waking up to clouds and fog. It should be time for the Strawberry Festival soon. The Pitchers and Catchers for the teams are down, so now the fun begins. Well Off to make breakfast and then to my corner to work on my first monster. Have a fun day.
  7. Hey Jessie, good to see you drop in. Sorry to hear everyone is sick, but at least you seem to be on the mend. I have gone thru DH with a kidney stone. They are such fun (only kidding), hope he passes it soon. Hugs to you and good luck with the addition.
  8. Thanks for info Carol. The news kept saying Miami area. Yes, it is going to be a very hard day tomorrow.
  9. I am sitting here watching the news and feeling very sad. Another school shooting over near Miami. Someone went into the high school, pulled the fire alarm and started shooting. Students and teachers, as soon as they heard the shots, shut and locked doors. They just said 17 people no longer with us. The middle school was next door and as soon as they heard the shots all doors were locked, so no one could get into the school. They got the shooter. Apparently some of the students knew him. My Heart is breaking for the parents and loved ones of these who are gone. My prayers for the students.

  11. Thank you all for the anniversary wishes. We had a nice day, we just finished dinner and are now having a piece of the cake I ordered for today. Hey Brenda, sometimes the hole in the wall places have the best food. Well off to relax and enjoy my night and I hope you all enjoy yours.

  13. Well, first Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary and Happy Valentine's Day. These are three of the great things to celebrate today. Very cloudy here today, but the sun is trying to get out. Thank you for the compliments on the Panda afghan. If you are going to do a graph ghan for the first time, this is a great one. Not many changes of color and large sections of one color. Owlvamp it is a regular graph, I did not do it as a corner to corner, but that is an idea. Well Nothing exciting going on today. We picked up our anniversary cake (46 yrs today). We are going to have steak, stuff cod (crab meat) and all the trimmings. Hope everyone has a great day today.
