  1. Well it is now 2021. The first thing I did this morning was throw out the old calendars and replace them with new. As I tossed them in the trash I said "Good bye suck-o year". Did not make it till midnight. Fell asleep about 11 and did not wake till this morning. I did notice my neighbor (across the street) had a big screen up in his driveway. It was showing the Simpsons when I looked. I am sure it was for the countdown, but I missed it. So today is a new day and a new year. Let's see how well it goes. Happy New Year to one and all.
  2. Oh how adorable. Both the mice and the picture.
  3. When you said Pencil you meant Pencil. I love it. I thought it would be slim.
  4. Oh man you are cracking me up Chris. Then I go down to the Thank you's and one of your cards escaped the Twilight zone and made it to Poland. You have to laugh or you will be crying😭. Their excuse is they have less people working because of pandemic. Yeah, what is their excuse the rest of the year. Hey it only took 11 days between sorting stations in NJ? What from North Jersey to South Jersey? That is typical. Those in North Jersey thinks South Jersey consist of Atlantic City only. i know when I worked up there, they asked me what state I was from.🤣
  5. Hey Chris, I just got 2 cards yesterday that were sent out on the 10th of Dec. One from CT and the other from the Black Hole of NJ. As soon as I got them, I thought of you and your pacakges. Well it is NEW YEARS EVE. It will be nothing like any other. I think a lot of people will be staying up to make sure the year 2020 leaves. Reni: I am an Eagles fan, grew up in Philly and it never leaves. I root for the home team Buc's and last year I rooted for KC in the SuperBowl. As all good Eagle fans would say "We root for 2 teams, the Eagles and anyone who BEATS Dallas." Hate to tell you guys this, but we are going up to 82 today and tomorrow, then we will get another cold front. Got my Ham and Cabbage ready for tomorrow. Every group has their superstitions. Mom always told us (the good Irishman she was), that you much have Ham and Cabbage on New Years Day for good luck. Oh and lets not forget the potatoes.😁 So Happy New Year everyone and let's hope for a better on.
  6. Actually the yarn depends on what you are making? See I use cotton for some on my ami's, it is not just for potholders and such. I like a soft yarn for afghans, Like Red Heart's soft or even I Love this yarn. Like the way you hold you hook, it is a preference. I make a lot of my ami's in thread, instead of yarn.
  7. Wow beautiful. Love the color and yes the ribbon makes it special.
  8. 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.😁
  9. Since you are new, it could be your tension. This sometimes gets tighter as you learn. When they get on, I am sure others will answer you question better.
  10. Reni the only time I get to see snow is during a football game. Great game in Green Bay on Sunday Night. They looked like they were having fun slipping and sliding all over the place. I am sure they were not, but it was fun to watch. alp1 I am going to make sure I stay up also. Thanks for the chuckle.
  11. 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.😁 Wow that is a lot of afghan. We have several spots where you can find some. Try Crochet Patterns and you can ask Seeking patterns for any special patterns you are looking for.
  12. This year is just getting better and better. Dh went to send in the report on his pacemaker this morning. He put the machine over the pacemaker and Nada it did not work. So he called the Dr.'s office and made an appointment for the day he sees the Dr., then he called the company that makes the machine and they are sending out a new one. This year can not get over fast enough. ONE MORE DAY.
  13. My decorations will come donw on the 6th. I usually wait till the 7th, but lots of Dr. appointments. Now a pacemaker check has been added. This year just keeps getting better. First my tree took a dive 3 times and had to be tossed, now the pacemaker machine is not working, so he can not send the report to the Heart Dr. He will have it done the day he see's the Dr. Oh please make next year better. Off to work on my afghan.

    Reksio the dog

    He is just adorable and made me smile.
  15. Yeah, we are here worring about when we will get the vaccine, and sorry, but someone here iin the US is anamously (Spelling wrong) sending 150,000 vaccines over to Iran. In the state of Florida we do not know where we stand. I am 71 in January, Dh is 79 in January. We are both diabetics, I have asthma and he has a pacemaker. We should be getting it soon, but I can not find out when. We go to the Dr. next week, so maybe we can ask him. Sorry, but the young congress people and the interns should not be getting it till the ones suspitable to the virus get it first. Krys so sorry to hear about your daughter. Let us know how the operation goes. Now it is time for the adult holiday. Happy New Year.
  16. Oh wow they are just great looking. What a great center piece for the table. Love the little baby Jesus.
  17. Love the hat. I gather the model promised to wear it for a picture, but is camera shy? Actually the afghan has less writing and figures on it. I don't know why it is taking longer.
  18. The bird is just adorable. I wish I had to room, Now that I think on it, it could be in a case it looks that real. I am working on an afghan for my Nieces's daughter. It is taking longer than my last one. Can't figure out why. There is less writing than the last one.
  19. Wow Ratdog that is great. Still not sure when we will be given it. I will be patient. Ratdog, I find the tree going down as an perfect end to a suck-o year. Lea, enjoy your new little one. I remember when we had to get the Polio vaccine. If I remember it was mandatory. It was the last vaccination that way. We also use to get TB test every year in school. I have been down most of the day with a sinus migrain. Woke up at 2:30 and could not find the aspirin. I am much better now. It has been a while since I had one this bad, and I do not like them. My resolution next year is not to complain about anything. I am just going to smile😁 or as they say, Grin and bear it. Have a great even and I hope you had a great Christmas.

  21. Sandra, glad to hear you were able to have Christmas Dinner after all. Reni you had a great feast and I do hope you SIL's parents get better. It is really scary out there. I can't wait for the shot, but that is just me. My tree is no more. It fell again on the 23rd and it turns out the Plastic stand that is attached to the tree, broke. It is unusable. Of course I am sure someone who is handy could fix it. I will be calling Michael's on Monday to find out about getting a refund. So I guess there will be no tree this year. It will fell strange without it in the living room. Now only 5 more days till the New Year starts. I can not wait and hope it is better than the last.
