  1. Mary Jo, you have created yet another gorgeous tote for some lucky gal. You are amazing! The only way I will know when the New Year comes in is when all the neighborhood "kids" shoot off their fireworks. It always wakes me up, I look at the clock and go back to sleep!
  2. Sarisue, those are gorgeous doilies and some that I don't have. I would love to have my name entered for the drawing. I would be happy to pay for the booklet, the postage or both.
  3. Another beautiful tote and perfect for Fall. I love everyone's Thanksgiving stories and am looking forward to the clues tomorrow.
  4. This is a nice pattern, but I have to agree with magiccrochetfan about the vintage patterns not being for beginners. I can read them (been crocheting for 60+ years) but occasionally I run into some difficult phrases. Many of the newer patterns include stitch counts that are very helpful and is something you rarely see in the older ones. I mostly use thread and love some of the older patterns. Lots of luck with your project.
  5. I know the where! That part was easy. Now for the who. Not so easy. Mary Jo, you come up with some interesting clues and I'm always interested in trying to solve the "puzzle". Love your stories that go along with the totes.
  6. A really beautiful bag this month. Love those colors. I can't wait to follow the clues to its' final destination and meet the new "bag lady". I also hated gym class. I was too short for basketball, arms too skinny for volley ball, batted left handed and swam like a rock although I didn't weigh 100 lbs. lol I was soooo glad when those classes were over. I do remember and actually wore the poodle skirts and saddle oxfords which always made blisters on my feet!!!
  7. Hello and welcome from Southwest Alabama. Looking forward to getting to know you.
  8. Mary Jo, just a suggestion for the glue: use a toothpick to more accurately place the glue where you need it to be. I believe that's what she uses also. She designs some really cute items. The angel is so cute. She's gonna love it on your tree!

    He is so adorable!!
  10. This is a beautiful pattern. I'm going to search for it. I found it!!!!! It is an Annies Attic pattern designed by Elizabeth Ann White of Bella Crochet. I believe Annies Attic now owns the copyright for it and republishes it occasionally. It is so pretty!!!
  11. You've done a nice job on the afghan. Great pattern and beautiful color choices. If it is a gift, someone will be very happy with it.
  12. I'm giving this a try.
  13. I will take a picture of the yarn label and post it tomorrow so you can see that it is what you need. It definitely does NOT say light on it and I feel that this is what you are looking for. If I can figure out how to post from my phone, I will do it sooner. Still learning so much about this "smart phone". I'm sure it's smarter than me!!!
