  1. Happy Birthday, Judy! I hope you have a wonderful day. ♥♥♥
  2. Hi House. ♥♥♥ I seem to be on a "post every 3 weeks" schedule lately. Our lives continue to be full of appointments and now we have added a neurologist to the list. Hubby's memory lapses have become much more frequent. Of course, it's only natural for him to be unaware (and in denial) and I'm trying so hard to learn everything I can. There is a support group at a local church and I've been twice so far. Luke and Zach are doing great and love school. DD's store is still rocking! And Felix and Tank are so cute...see picture below. Not much crocheting going on, but scarves are my go to now since I don't have to concentrate too much! Lol Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving, friends.
  3. Hi everyone! I'm still alive. Most of the last 3 weeks have not been fun, but we're about back to normal now, thank goodness. I had a virus and lost my hearing in one ear for 6 days. We had our flu shots a week before that but the doctor didn't think it was related to that. Then hubby sprained his ankle. (It wasn't the one he broke last spring.) He will start physical therapy soon. Other not so fun things going on but only affecting my mental health. LOL Thinking of you all and have caught up on posts. I have procrastinated again and need to get a new laptop soon. I still have Windows 7 and mine won't support Windows 10...as of Jan. 14th Microsoft won't support Windows 7 anymore. This week, I plan to clean up all my pictures, bookmarks, etc. and put things on flash drives for the new computer...oh dear! Take care and have a good weekend!
  4. Hi Mary Jo Each and every one is adorable! Your knitting is gorgeous!
  5. Hi House. Judy ~ The afghan is wonderful! Love the colors you chose. Those last rounds seem to take forever, don't they? Lol Marisa ~ Yarn night with friends sounds so nice. Are you working on anything special? I'm glad things are going well at work. Mona ~ Have a great trip to Arkansas! I hope you have some time to relax and enjoy the scenery! Possible severe weather for us tonight. Our temps are supposed to be in the 40's in the morning! DH had an appointment this a.m. and I'm going to crochet later...Yay! Have a good afternoon, friends. ♥♥♥
  6. Good morning, everyone. Judy ~ Looking forward to seeing your latest projects! Your graph 'ghans are always so special. Mona ~ Oh, I hope your shoulder is much better. We had Luke and Zach over the weekend and I was definitely ready for some quiet time. Lol Marisa ~ So glad everything is going well for you all! Will Troy be working from home? My hubby's office was at home for many years, but he traveled over 200 days a year so he wasn't always underfoot. LOL Hi Dianna! Years ago, we had a house built and it had a metal roof. We loved it and never had any problems. I hope you get some relief from the heat soon! Cindy ~ You sound busy and happy. After the hottest and driest September on record, we woke up to 55* yesterday! Over 40* degrees cooler than Sunday...I couldn't stay inside. We'll still have some 80* days, but hopefully no higher than that! No crochet time for me lately and I hope to change that later today! Have a good day, friends.

    Hi there! My first thought was the blanket stitch? https://www.mamainastitch.com/simple-crocheted-blanket-go-pattern/
  8. 'Evening everyone. Mona ~ Good for you...you deserve some time for yourself! I goofed off today and crocheted, ignored my desk and the laundry. Will be paying for it tomorrow, though. Lol
  9. Hi! Welcome to Crochetville!
  10. Hi Ladies. I hope everyone is having a good weekend! Mona ~ Did you really get to have a "me" day? I know how hard it is to even crochet for an hour without interruptions. Lol Brenda ~ Wow! You all have done so much. Do you have a date for the final move yet? You're going to love having wi-fi and also having people available to fix things! Marisa ~ Being an aunt and uncle is keeping you all busy...sounds fun! How are your parents doing? So happy for Troy and he will do great! Well, the Geek Squad was here again. I guess twice in a year isn't too bad, considering DH can't see what he's doing on Mac most the time. Even he laughs about some of the strange things that show up. Most the time I can clean it up, but I had no idea this time. Oh well... Take care, friends.
  11. Mona~I'm so sorry about the snake intrusion...how scary! It reminded me of when our oldest grandson, Luke, was 2 or 3 and was happily watching the garbage trucks out our front storm door and I went to check on him. There was a snake curled up and looking in the door! Thankfully it was a harmless rat snake and the door was locked tight. Luke thought it was great and I was a nervous wreck. Lol The pumpkin in my avatar is to remind me that it really is fall - another 96* day today!
  12. Hi friends. I hope everyone is having a good week! Brenda ~ So glad you're nearly settled in your new home! What fun to be able to call people who are friendly and wanting to help you. It sounds like a lovely place. Marisa ~ You have been busy! Such good news about Troy's job...and that it didn't take long to find one. Are the turtles okay? Hi to Deb and Collette, too.♥ 5 more days in September and if the temps don't change, it will be the hottest Sept. on record! We haven't had rain in over 4 weeks. Wouldn't you know we have a back yard full of new sod...water bill is larger than the electric bill. Felix and Tank (DD's kittens) are 6 months old already. They are still adorable, inseparable and very busy. I'll try to post a picture soon. Have a great Thursday.
  13. Hi House! Too long since I've posted, but I've been keeping up with you all. It's been an 'interesting' couple of weeks, but things are pretty much back to normal. (fingers crossed!) Hubby has had two more Mohs procedures and both needed plastic surgery the following mornings at the hospital. At least two other doctor appointments each of the last two weeks, repairmen here for one ac unit and the fridge...life sure gets in the way of my crocheting! I hope everyone is doing okay and enjoying early Fall.
  14. Hi Ladies. I hope everyone is having a good Friday. Diana ~ So glad the worst of the storm missed you! Oh, I admire those of you who do thread work...those tiny hooks and I don't get along. Lol Mona ~ 'Hope your trip to Arkansas is wonderful! Brenda ~ Love the bonsai pictures! You all have been going non-stop - you deserve a vacation after you move! Marisa ~ Yarn night sounds so fun. I remember when you decorated the bridge with yarn! You've motivated me to start reorganizing my sewing room...thank you, I think! Our senior citizen center asks for yarn donations so I took 2 big bags this morning. It's all full skeins that I've had way too long and brands/colors that I won't use again. I'm just getting started! Collette ~ I'm so sorry about your accident. Hi to Judy, Cindy and anyone I've missed. September is supposed to be a little cooler than August...not this year! Heat index of 110* yesterday and no rain in the forecast!
  15. Hi House. The last 2 weeks have flown by and I'm just now catching up with you all. Hi Marisa! It's so good to see your posts again. Congratulations on your marriage, new home and your own craft room! We've had the boys quite a bit, but they started back to school today so won't be here as often. DH has had several appointments and the landscape people have been here two different days. We have a back lawn full of grass again! Will post more soon. DH has a dental appointment, so better get ready.
  16. Happy Friday, everyone. Brenda ~ Hopefully, the closings will happen soon. You sound like you are ready to go...how exciting! Judy ~ Oh, the toddler 'ghan is perfect! Can't wait to see another one of your incredible graph 'ghans! Diana ~ I hope you can find just the right color! I agree about SS - love the way it feels, but it does split a lot. Mona ~ Enjoy your weekend! I hope you have lots of time to relax and crochet. We're still very hot, but it's August in Texas so we should be used to it by now. Lol Dh is at lunch with friends and I'm about caught up for today. (I'll never be totally caught up like I used to! )
  17. Hi Carol! We're glad you're here.
  18. Diana ~ Oh, you are being so good! I actually used 3 skeins from my stash to make scarves and felt very proud of myself. Mona ~ We've been having the high heat and humidity, too...not fun at all. We were at 105* (real temp) yesterday! I'm glad you're able to have some crochet time! Brenda ~ You all have been super busy! Sorry if I missed it...do you have a moving date yet? Hi Judy! It feels good to be home for a couple of days. I vacuumed the downstairs and cleaned one bath this morning. 'Hope to have some crochet time later.
  19. Hi House. Diana ~ Hi! It's so good to see new friends join in! Your work is lovely...we always love pictures. Donna ~ I hope you had a wonderful time on your vacation! I really like the 'new' format and thank you for all you do. Cindy ~ Have fun on your camping trip! Hi to the rest of the House, too! Lots of appointments again this month and checking on the grand cats has kept us busy the last couple weeks. DD and her guys went to Orange Beach, Alabama for 8 days and had a great time. The kittens stay so busy playing with each other and their toys, I don't think they got too lonely. Lol Have a good Wednesday! ♥♥♥
  20. Hi Ladies. Brenda ~ You all have been very busy! How great that you already know some people at your new home...it sounds like a wonderful community! Cindy ~ The throw is gorgeous and the colors are perfect! It sounds like you are enjoying retirement. Mona ~ I hope you both got a better night's sleep last night. I totally understand about the grand kids wearing you out. Luke and Zach are 9 and 6 and still like to come over, but they get bored easily. They still love our 'big park' and playing outside, but now it is in the 100's which makes it difficult. We've been playing board games and I have a jig saw puzzle going on my (seldom used) dining room table. Judy ~ Yep, the heat and humidity have been really bad here, too. Our Michael's has cut back on their yarn department so much they might as well do away with it. Of course, they're a block from Hobby Lobby and Joann's. Hi to the rest of the House, too. ♥♥♥ I've been working in the yard early in the mornings. We now have almost full sun in the back yard and will add more grass sod around Sept. first. We've always had an arborist come every other year, but these two were starting to rest on our roof and the neighbors' roofs. They couldn't be pruned up anymore or they would have looked like palm trees. Lol And we lost most of the grass because of the heavy shade! At least I'm getting more vitamin D now! Not much crochet time, but I have made a couple of ribbed scarves. Those long rows seem to take forever! Have a good afternoon/evening, friends.
  21. Mona ~ Beautiful work! Can't wait to see it grow.
  22. Hi Donna. It's so good to see your posts and thank you for all you do! Have a wonderful vacation!
  23. Good Morning! Once again, I'm playing catch up. So happy to see Donna's posts and I hope we can help make the 'Ville active again! The last week was very full. The boys were here a couple times, we had two huge trees taken down (3 days work!) and I'm fumbling along trying to get used to the new glasses. Lol Today is my first quiet day and I plan to crochet all afternoon. I hope you all are having a good weekend! ♥♥♥
