  1. to the 'ville. I am so glad you decided to join us. We love seeing photos and hearing about everyone's projects (even non crochet projects)! I love the inspiration, encouragement and motivation that I have received from fellow members here. I hope you will join in on the chatter in the CAL's so we get to know you better.
  2. Krys just came from your show and tell pictures. Beautiful work as always. I love seeing your work. Yes we are encouraging people to post photos in show and tell for the reasons you listed. Lea sounds like you are accomplishing a lot. Glad to hear that is a good mitten pattern. Mary Jo simple delicious and easy is my kind of recipe. Glad they had the auction this year and made so much. Storms came thru this morning with a lot of thunder and lightening. The power blipped but stayed on. We are with the dulcimer club from 9 am until 3 pm. I think I will have just enough time to fix dh dinner after we get home before the football game starts.
  3. Krys the lamb and bunny hats are adorable. Kolby looks so happy with her blanket and hat. That was a nice baby set you made for her.
  4. Thanks Sandra. I will have to write it down and give it a try. I really like the crossover. Storm came thru last night and we lost power for awhile. We didnt have damage but there were several big tree limbs down in the nearby town. Glad I took care of the baking yesterday. Today we ran errands---almost out of diet coke and I guess dh didnt want me to go into withdrawal. I did wind up baking dh some zuchinni for supper tonight.
  5. Judy amazing afghan. Not showing dh because he would want me to make one. Diana nope rental unit not an option. Paying so much to live there that paying rent to store stuff is definitely not in what I feel is already too tight a budget for my comfort. Even though I wasnt comfortable with it I agreed because I have always wanted to live there, they accepted us financially, and guarantee it to be our home for life. Dh forced this move on me and said "he isnt taking much" so I can have things like my Christmas tree and yarn. I am ready to let go of things like that and he is the one saying no keep it. The garage will be acting as the storage unit. After all the cars sat outside here up until the last few years. I am ok with him taking those things but the car is never going to fit in the garage unless he is willing to give up the bed. It takes up a lot of floor space. He could sleep in the closet. I sleep in a chair.

    Secret Paths

    Its beautiful! I love this yarn for shawls. Its so soft and cuddly and the color changes are amazing.
  7. Mary I waffle between denial that we are moving, looking forward to life maybe by Christmas, and sheer panic. A big problem I am having is everything dh has promised me I could take along with all the things he keeps saying he wants to take he has overfilled the new place 3 or 4 times over. He says he doesnt want the place cluttered (like its my fault) and he wants to at some point park the car in the garage. So he wants to take his treadmill, at least one of the bicycles, keep his circular saw, reciprocating saw, his big electric drill, battery chain saw..... He wants to keep our tropical bonsai trees so that means we need our tools, wire, shelf with lights, soil mixes, fertilizer, and some pots. He says to keep the Christmas tree. I am accused of being negative and over dramatic. Ok I will just go sit and crochet potholders.
  8. Sandra that is pretty. What is the stitch pattern? Mary Jo did you use the air fryer to make the sweet and sour chicken? Spent afternoon making chocolate chip cookies for Sun. Then it was time for supper. Kitchen closed!
  9. You are off to a wonderful start. Its going to be beautiful. Prayers for your granddaughter's continued recovery.

    Little Fox

    Cute fox and great way to encourage kids to read.
  11. Judy love the afghan. It all went together so well. Cant wait to see the firetruck one. Sounds like you might have some exciting games to watch come Oct.
  12. Thank you for the compliments on the bird bath. I use Patio Paint in Grey Skies on my concrete. It has a sealer in it. Its my favorite for painting rocks too. I started using it several years ago because I was given some old pieces that were looking worn and it made them look new. I spent this morning making dinner rolls for Sat. Thankfully they turned out ok. I hadnt made any for over a year now. If I get ambitious I might make cookies this afternoon.

  15. If I am remembering correctly you have 4 places you would have worked an increase ----- front point, back point, and points on both sides. Basically when it says to repeat rows 3 and 4 you have to disregard the stitch count if it gives one because you added stitches and will continue to add stitches each round. It assumes you will see to work in pattern and only increase at the points established in rows 3 and 4 You will work an increase only at tip of these 4 points. Thats why I suggested using stitch markers. If you can post a photo we might be able to figure out what is happening.
  16. Its just amazing how different they look with the addition of each round. I am sure your niece will love it. There are so many colors in it and they just seem to play well off each other.
  17. Katy I had to fight to stay awake for the game. Needless to say I zonked out as soon as it was over. Being out in the heat wore me out more than the work. I was stiff and sore that night but was ok by morning. Today we hauled the bird bath to my nieces house and set it up, dropped our excess cucumbers off at my sisters, stopped for lunch, then Aldi, and home to put away groceries. Birdbath looks good in its new home and I will get to visit it. I guess I have had it for 30 years. She didnt want my gnome that went in it so I gave her Ducky.
  18. I have heard from Avon Lady. Her computer is still down so she checks in when she can at the library. She and her group have been busy so thought I would share since she couldnt. " We just dropped off 4 Prayer Shawls at our local Hospice this afternoon. Friday, we took 14 lapghans to the Veteran's local office, to be delivered to 2 Veterans hospitals. My Froggers Crochet Club is finally turning them in again!"
  19. Diana I am so glad you joined and jumped right in sharing photos of your work, chatting with us, and especially your help answering questions. Mary waiting on notice of closing date on our place so we can set up closing on new place. I am going to have a load of stuff with me to move in as soon as I get the key.

  21. Hopefully Granny Square will be along. She is wonderful about explaining gauge and walking people thru the process and calculations.
  22. Denise so funny having 90 cakes sent to your friend. Too bad you cant see her face when it arrives. No I dont think you told us about your new surger. Sounds like you did the right thing letting go of your mom's and getting yourself one thst was easier for you to use. Sorry for whatever life issues are going on. Hope they work out soon. Things are very stressful here. We are in the process of downsizing and moving. I find myself crocheting potholders when I should be doing other things but to overwhelmed to do them. Last doll dress I did I made the bodice from the flamenco dress but made the skirt in solid dc with some gradual increases so its not so see thru.
  23. When making items where finished size is important gauge needs to be checked so adjustments may be if necessary. https://m.wikihow.com/Check-a-Crochet-Gauge
