    granny squares for those that need them jan 2018

    Well Hello, what happened, it all looks so different on here. I had to sign in, which meant a new pw. good grief! Now I need to catch up. in the meantime, I made these: they are twin afghans for soon to be born twins--a boy and a girl. The little stuffies are for the "big brother", he's 3.

    Hi everyone, hope all is well. It's so darn hot here, it's 81 at 4:43, I cannot wait for cooler weather, however not cold winter weather! lol I went to the thrift store and found this good deal, I thought you'd all understand my jumping for joy over this. I got this set of crochet hooks, in the case for $2.00!!!

    Lyn, sorry for your loss. Katy, love all the hats. I especially like your glue gun holder, I've been wanting to make one for a few years now. Haha ya I'm slow at doing things. I'm crocheting some slipper socks, how do you sneakly measure someone's foot???

    Thank you everyone for the kind words. They did arrest him but he's out on bail of $1000!! They took the guns he had but there's always the possibility of more. They banned him from going in that city, but again, he can wear a hoodie and sunglasses and not be recognized. He could hide in a car and have a friend bring him. Can you tell that I am worried and barely slept??? But my daughter still went to class, I don't want to bring up the subject with her too much and make her worry too, this is supposed to be a fun time for her. I don't know if it is how kids are raised. We have 8 kids, raised them right, and some gave me trouble and some never did. you just never know how they will turn out. I will say that the ones that gave me gray hair while they were teens are grown men and are doing well now. I just don't know what to think of how the world is going. I blame alot on the internet and violence online and on tv and games. But I could be wrong, it's happened before. As for crocheting--I'm working a baby afghans for a set of twins. The baby shower is next month, and I just found out!! It was supposed to be later. I'll post pics at some point of how it's coming along. Hope everyone is having a good day. I'm waiting for a visit from my son and his fiance!

    I'm picking her up after this class. My husband says the police will be on the lookout for him but I--being the mamabear--does not trust anyone, know what I mean? I don't understand this whole "thing" that's going on, that people feel the need to harm others to make things better for themselves (which usually doesn't work that way anyhow). A couple years ago my other daughter went to college in Mass and then lived in Denmark and I was so worried but after she graduated, I thought "ok, I can stop now" but now this one is in college and I have a bunch of grandkids who go to school. Anyways, sorry for rambling, just had to say something to someone ............

    I am besides myself, my daughter just called me and told me a random guy threatened to shoot up the college she's at. She just started yesterday. it's in the next town over and he lives in the town on the other side of us. It's too close. Now she's scared and so am I. He's out on bail. what the heck????

    Katy, did you know that you can use the furry ball pompom keychains from the dollar store! I bought a couple and tried it, have to take the keychain off, then attach the furry ball to the hat. Of course now my DT doesn't have any, so I hope they get more soon.

    Just dropping in to say hi. Had my last pt for my foot today, glad that's done. It will never heal but now I know exercises to help make it feel better. Did some christmas shopping this week! I found some sequin pillows for my grand daughters and now I'm crocheting some mermaids to go with them. Hope everyone is having a great crocheting day!!

    Ladies, I'm officially old. I have seen a Red Heart yarn come and go!! lol I bought this skein last nite, its new on the shelves; however, I remember buying the same color, years ago when my kids were little. I feel like I've seen a "yarn color" be popular, go away, and return to be popular again!!! I had to go back to walmart tonight and spoke with a woman in the yarn dept and she said the remembered that color from a long time ago also!! Pretty quiet day here, I spent my morning making clay handles for more of my crochet hooks. They aren't pretty and fancy, but they work for me!

    more crochet hooks

    I made myself more handles on my crochet hooks. They aren't fancy but they do the job. I wanted a set with only pink handles and the other one is a purpley and white. Apparently I only own 1 I hook, so I need to get a couple more! This is the only brand I like, with the exception of a few I got at Hobby Lobby.

    Crochet hooks!!

    Thank you! Actually I have made some for gifts, one set for my future daughter in law and one set for a friend for christmas this year. I'm hoping to make more for gifts.

    Craft shows are a tricky thing. I do them every year and yet I'm still broke! lol I'm always happy if I can get more than my table money and I see others who make alot of money. What types of things do you sell? I have sewn doll clothes, crocheted items and recycled sweaters turned into mittens. Every year there's more and more people that make the same things, I'm always looking for new ideas. Good luck with your craft fair. I did one every weekend in nov and dec and some I did 2 (last year 2017), not sure I want to do that this year.
