  1. Hi 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.😁 What I did when I first started was put a stitch marker on the first and last stitch. This way, you know where they are. Once you get use to crocheting, you can stop using the markers, except for the first stitch when crocheting in the round.
  2. Good Morning. Lea the giraffe is adorable. Pineknott, I do not blame you. I would go for the full sleep myself. We will keep you in our prayers. cshort, I thought they were opening the schools? Seems like they can't make up their minds. Good luck with the training. Hey, snuck up on the scale yesterday and guess what? Lost another pound. Well that is it for today. Have a fun day.
  3. Hi 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 very cute. Thank you for the info. More people will see it, if you post it here. https://forum.crochetville.com/forum/475-crochet-patterns/
  4. Beautiful day today. Maybe some rain later, who knows, certainly not the weather people. SIL got the afghan, Llama and slippers yesterday. She loves the slippers, so hopefully she likes the rest. Our mailbox is not slated to be put in on the 13th. Keep your fingers crossed. Our other one is kind of rickety. Watched Thank God It's Friday, yesterday. Boy did that movie bring a lot of memories back. Lionel Richie is still with the Commodores. It was fun to watch and I loved the music. Especially Donna Summers. We watched it on Amazon Prime Movies. Today is watching Law & Order and a Hockey game at 3 PM. Have a fun day.
  5. Take care Judianne and thanks for the info. I have been trying to contact my SIL and see how they are doing. They are in Sicklerville. I should give my sister a call also, see if they have service. Up early and getting stuff done, before it gets to hot. Well, off to try and make some calls. Have a great day.
  6. You are actually working the legs onto the body. It is like sock monkeys and sever other patterns. You will do 8 dc on the body, then pick up one of the legs and do 10 DC on the leg. As you add each leg, you will do 10 DC from the leg. Once you finish the row, you will have all legs attached the extra strings attached to the leg, you will make sure it is inside. I do not see it, but you should have 8dc, between the back and front legs on each side. I hope this helps.
  7. 🤣Sorry Lea, I had to laugh. You missed your chance. You could of said of course they are organic. They are from my Secret Garden. Is the water filtered? I would of said Yeah I just finished running it thru my still. Gotta love em. So 3 H's are in full bloom today. Lea glad you are all back and ok after the storm. Have a fun day today.
  8. I understand Brenda. We grew up with fans in the windows. During the day, upstairs was closed up and down stairs was open. The fans were taking the air out. At night the downstairs was closed up and the windows upstairs was open. We got one window unit after a while, because of my allergies. I got the AC. I have this movie on VHS and DVD. I am looking at getting it on VUDU.
  9. I was a young stupid teenager and it was before I realized "Hey stupid you have the completion of a red head" Stay out of the sun. Glad to hear you made out ok with the storm Lyn. Good luck with the scan.
  10. Thank you all. Yeah, the movie house was the old one from when they had shows before the movie. Mom told us that they use to go there during the war and sometimes got dishes with the price of the ticket I always dedicate this table to my Mom, as her birthday is the end of the month and of course because she loved Gone With the Wind. She would of been 100 this year.
  11. It is August again and I thank the tech. Gods for AC. Every year I make this statement, but I don't think I could of lived back when they wore so many cloths. Can you imagine putting on all those layers of clothing without AC? Gone With the Wind was my Mom's favorite movie. When I was 16 she took me and my sister to the movie house in Philly. It was a movie house you don't see anymore. It had a stage and big red curtain. The whole place was red and gold. The lobby was opulent with glitter of red and gold. I think my sister and I were the youngest people at the movie. I fell laughing when in the movie they show Clark Gable at the bottom of the stairs. There was a collective sigh in the place. I really enjoyed the move and I still do. Mammy was my favorite character in her red petticoat and of course Prissy. August was the month we went to Ocean City, NJ for a week. We stayed with a friend a block from the beach and boardwalk. It was our last vacation before school started. In this time of having to distance and stay in, I hope we can look forward to once again having vacations and lots of fun with family and friends.
  12. Good Morning. Yeah, watching the news shows NC got hit pretty bad and it will still pack quite a wallop when it hits the rest of the states up North. Switching over the table and tree today. Everyone have a great day.
  13. Not sure about Goodwills, but the Vietnam Vets are picking up. They will be here on the 6th. Today was like walking out into an oven. I was out long enough to be well done. To think as a young thing, I use to go out to the beach, put on baby oil and fry. Learned real fast that is NOT good. Off to watch my hockey game.
  14. Ratdog hope the plumber got to you in time. Went out to get my medicine from the grocery store and pick up a few things. It was like walking into an oven. Bad thing is no rain in site. Try and stay cool and safe today.
  15. Just finished watching the splash down and recovery of the astronauts . It was fascinating and I forgot how interesting it was to watch. Lots of boats out in Gulf to watch it splash down.🚤 Have a fun weekend.
  16. Magiccrochetfan gave the best example. What a beautiful heirloom to have and to be able to pass on Welcome to the Ville and glad to have you with us.

  18. Thank you Judianne. The Llama is actually suppose to be made with thread. I thought that was a little to small for a baby. It is packed up and ready to go.

  20. OMG You will be in our prayers. Yes, please have Rene keep us informed. I can not believe he is not putting you in right away, but in a way, maybe that is good. Just a stop by to say Hi and see how everyone is doing.
  21. Glad to here like us you are outside the cone. We might get some rain thrown off, but nothing other than that. Maybe we will all get lucky and it will move further out to sea. Keep safe everyone.
  22. Cshort, hope you are taking precautions. We are not in the cone, but still watching the storm. The President was just in Tampa and said the order is ready to sign for help with the Hurricane. Got the blanket and stuff all packed up and ready to be shipped. I hope to get it out on Monday. Everyone on the East Coast, be careful and hopefully you won't get much damage from the storm. We are routing for you.
  23. My friend caught a picture of this on FB and she loves it.
