  1. Let me start by saying I am so sorry this thank you is so late. I have been without internet for a while now. This is the first time I have been online in a long time. A huge thank you to the wonderful elf in MI for the wonderful box of goodies you sent me. I received a card, head pins, lobster claw clasps and 6 skeins of yarn. I have been wanting some of the Bernat Softee Chunky and can't find it here anymore. The head pins and lobster claw clasps will be used to make more stitch markers that I can send out as RAOKs. Thank you so very much for thinking of me. I deeply appreciate your thoughtfulness.
  2. That is just too cute. When I saw the title of the thread I had to click it hoping it was something with the Cincinnati Reds, since I am also from SW Ohio!
  3. Just back from vacation and am trying to go through weeks of mail. Had to stop and thank a wonderful elf in PA for the crochet magazines. They are great. Now I know how I am going to spend my weekend....browsing through them all Thank you for thinking of me and sending this wonderful package
  4. I showed your latest creation to Nancy, and she loves it too. I send her pictures each month of them so she can see your beautiful bags too. I didn't bring my bag with me cause she has too many animals and I was afraid one of them might damage it. Eventually she will see mine in person to appreciate the beauty of it.
  5. It is absolutely gorgeous Mary Jo :clap I am on vacation down here in Florida and just had to pop in to see if you had posted it yet. Will have to keep an eye out for when you post that it has been sent. Can't wait to see who the lucky lady is that will be the newest member of the bag lady club. Awesome bag as usual
  6. Missed posting last week cause of internet problems (was at 0 anyway), and thought I was going to miss this week too, but internet is working for now so I better get the ugly score posted Used 2 cones and 1 skein so that is +6 Was RAOK'd 6 skeins so that is -12. That puts me at: WTD: -6 YTD: +264
  7. I have a few thank you's to post here. Sorry it has taken me so long to post them, we have been without internet for a while now. Thank you to the elf in WA for the cute Christmas card. Thank you to the elf if PA for the card and beautiful angel ornament. And thank you to my wonderful elf in PA for the wonderful package of goodies. I received ornaments, key chains, notepad, little cat calender with clip, butterfly magnet/pin, leverback earring kit (I really needed that, I was out of leverbacks), and 6 skeins of wonderful yarn. Thank you all so much for thinking of me and sending me such wonderful things
  8. Thanks Ladies. The pattern is so versatile. It can be used for a dishcloth, hot pad or a potholder. I have used hook sizes from H up to K. Of course, the smaller the hook the thicker it will be. Have fun with it ladies Let me know how they turn out!
  9. I have about 20 or so in my personal collection. And I couldn't begin to say how many I have given as gifts, to different charities or been commissioned to make some for someone. Whenever I find yarn I like but haven't used, I buy a skein and make a scarf with it. Then I wear it for a while to see how it holds up. If it holds up with no fuzzing or pilling, I buy more to make something else with it. Quality control at it's finest
  10. Howdy Darski. I somehow missed this thread I love making scarves so I of course I am joining this CAL. I will probably use the birthstone colors for my scarves. I know, not very original, but my little pea brain seems to be missing the creative section lately. Guess the cold weather has frozen my creativity
  11. There are quite a few of them. Go to the CAL section and browse. A lot of them may not be seeing a lot of posts right now since a lot of us are making Christmas gifts.
  12. Yipee! Shoot the moon for me I think this is the first time for me I think I am using the 'never ending' cones of cotton. I keep crocheting with them and there is still a lot of yarn on them. Hopefully by the end of the week I will have busted at least 2 of them.
  13. I will definitely be here in 2009. With all the stash busting I did this year, I may be the winner of the Shoot The Moon Award more than once!!
  14. Didn't get any more stash busted today, so my total for the week is WTD: -10 YTD: +270
  15. I used up a skein of cotton making a dishcloth and coaster That puts me at -10. Hopefully I can get a few more skeins of cotton busted today, but I really need to get my rear in gear and work on the ripple, so we shall see what else (if anything) gets busted today.
