  1. Good Morning. Nothing but thunder storms from about 8 last night till a little while ago. Not doing much in the way of crocheting. The eyes are having a little trouble focusing. I will be glad when I get to see the eye Dr. at the end of the month. Oh Lea, I told my SIL about the shower for your DIL. Her Granddaughter (the Llama person) is having her shower at the Country Club and there will be a pro photographer. Oh and she told them if they want to get in a picture with her, they must wear a dress or skirt, NO shorts or pants. This is her grandmother. I am now worried she will not like the stuff I made for my SIL, I told her if the snobs say anything, tell them she paid $300 for the set. That should bring their noses down. She doesn't know where this kid came from, as they are not like that. No offense to those who went, but she thinks it if the Hoity Toity College people she hung around with. I told her about the fruit and water. Well, off make breakfast. Have fun today.
  2. Good Afternoon. We have had a lot of storms run thru here this morning. So it has been a little wet and noisy here today. Thank you Collette, we went from a mailbox attached to the house in South Jersey to a Cluster Box in Central to a box at the end of the driveway. This one is surprising because it is heavy metal and has been cemented into the ground. It was expensive, but worth the price. Got a call from the tree people and they will be here on Sept. 4th in the morning, so we are moving right along. I hear you with people not knowing how long it takes to make things and not appreciate it. One year I made an afghan and stuffy for my SIL and they changed the date of the shower, so it would not be done in time. She asked if I had a picture of what I was making, so she could put it in the card. This time I made the Llama blanket, stuffy and slippers. She is still raving about the slippers. Anyway, she asked me for the price, I told her I would only charge her for the material. I sent up the afghan, stuffy and slippers told her what it would cost. She sent me an Amazon gift card for double, cause she felt I did not charge enough. She is a sewer, so she knows about time it takes to make things. Sometimes we are appreciated, but it has to be someone who knows what is involved. We never had a varenda growing up. There was a pourch or stoop and a doorway. I guess you could call the laini a veranda, as it has enough room for chairs and such. So hope everyone is going to have a great day.
  3. Good Morning. Krys so glad you are ok. Storms can be scary. Well it is hot and humid and we are suppose to get showers this morning, we shall see. Got up and the front windows were steamed up. My AC is set at 78. Well, off to make breakfast and then to my corner. Have a fun day.
  4. 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.😁 I am not very good with the magic rings myself. I usually chain 2 (if sc) then put the number of sc's in second chain from hook. If it is a dc I chain 4 for hdc it is chain 3.
  5. Here you go Lea. https://www.fashionlove.shop/tomyson-02?fbclid=IwAR1wZetLDLE7Ltp4isusV2ijkX-8R5hK8hr1fdFUTuNnMT8vpD9FEXvSdCU
  6. Lea so glad you got the pattern book. I was worried. I finally got my medicine today after 4 days on the East Coast. Some people have the patience for home schooling and some don't . I had to laugh over the brain tumor or ingrown toe nail. Well, here is the new mailbox. Now the trees.
  7. Great news on your Dad babyphoosmom. Love the paper holder Daraski. Getting things packed up and ready to ship. Have a good day everyone.
  8. Thanks for the giggle. That is so cool. Great news on the test Pineknott. Off to my corner.
  9. Good Morning. I have one more thing to say about the schools. Hillsboro opened the schools yesterday. The news was at one of the grade schools. They talked to a father who was dropping his 5 year old off for kindergarten. They asked him how he felt about it. He said " Believe me she needs this". The look on his face was hystirical. Anyway, they had a yellow brick road painted on the sidewalk. Everyone was met by either Dorothy, The lion, the Scarecrow and the Tinman. Everything Wizard of oz. Inside the water fountains were blocked off. They had sanitary stations all around. The desk were far enough apart and along the walls were hooks 6 ft. intervals for backpacks. Oh and everyone must wear a mask. Looks like they got it going. Well, we just got our grocery order. All is put away and now I am going back to work on Santa and Mrs. Claus. Ran the sprinklers today, as NO RAIN. Have a fun day.
  10. Congrats to your son Ratdog. What an accomplishment. Tomorrow we should hear if we get our new mailbox or not. The hold up is brackets. Because they are white, they have to be painted and then baked like a car. The post office is an amazing place. Last Friday my medicine was in Palm Harbor. Saturday, instead of being in my mailbox it went to Winter Springs, Fl. which is above Orlando on the side of the state. It is still sitting there, good thing I have plenty. I give them one more day to ship it back, before I call. Rant over. Hazy, hot and humid. Possible rain. Have a fun day.
  11. They just listed the rules for opening the schools here. Mask must be worn. hand sanitizer will be located at different areas of the school. One substitute teacher per school. Reni, love the joke. But it is so true.
  12. Wow that is beautiful. You should put a tag on it so everyone knows it is your quarantine blanket and made in 2020. Love the colors and the outlines. I would have nightmares sewing that together.
  13. Good One Ratdog. I agree with you. Opinions should be expressed at the polls. Watching the dark clouds to the east of us. Not sure if we going to get any rain. Sure can use it. Put water in the pool today, thought for sure that would get us some. I know, I will set up the sprinklers to go off on Thursday.
  14. The only thing that would stop me from sending my kids to school at this point, is if they were going to teach the 1619 forum. This is a total abomination to our history. Many kids are having trouble learning virtually, so being in the class room is better. Besides the parents need to get back to work. Enough politics. We all have our opinions. It is like vaccines. Many do not get the flue shot and that is your choice, But how many will take the vaccine for this Covid-19? Not asking, but wondering and my opinion.
  15. Good Morning. Well, the news this morning told all the kids to get ready. Schools will open as usual on August 24th. I think (my own opinion) that they need to go back. They need to dispel the energy that has been pent up with the stay in place. Storms moving in, so need to cut this short. Have a great day.
  16. It was different and I thank you Chris for your help with the shoulder straps. I have used the UV light I have to sanitize the whole box and contents. It is now getting closed up and ready for shipment.
  17. 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.😁 Depends on how big you want the sheep. I have worked with the chenille yarn and not overly happy with it. I had trouble seeing the loops. Of course I do not have the best eye sight. Do you want ww or DK? Best place to get help is here. https://forum.crochetville.com/forum/39-crochet-yarn/
  18. I make some doll cloths for Bailey4's charity. I mostly send a doll with outfits a tote and some doll blankets. I have some time, so I thought I would make another outfit for an 18" doll to send up. I have to get it packed up and sent, before I have to pack it up and take it up, cause of the weight. Here she is. It is a pattern from Granny Square Holiday outfits. This is Easter, but I did not make the hat.
  19. 🤣 Thanks Lea I needed that laugh, just hope the heart Dr. is happy. Love the picture of you DIL. The Giraffe is adorable. I have a pattern I would like to send to you, but I will ask first. Look for an e-mail. ReniC what a great surprise for you. Sorry about the other problems. I was talking to a friend a while ago. and we were laughing. When we were young, it was "What movie do you want to see?" :"What are you going to wear?" " Did you talk to so and so?" You know everyday things of kids and young adults. NOW, it is what hurts, what we need to get done and what medicine we are taking. Think about it. Getting old is a bitch. Eating light tonight 1/2 sandwich and soup. Have a fun day. Oh I am posting a new outfit I made for the doll Charity for Bailey4. Summer Doll outfit.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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/
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
