  1. Oh Maryjo...I forgot how wonderful your tables are. Beautiful as ever. Love to see the pictures BTW....This looks cute for an Irish Doll https://www.amazon.com/IRISH-COLLEEN-DOLL-Download-Patricks-ebook/dp/B0026MS9EO
  2. Hello fellow Michigander. I too am retired but from the State of Michigan Management and Budget. Thought I would have more time to crochet but all my volunteering gets in the way. This is a great group. Glad you are here.
  3. Hello all. I'm back after a I don't know how long absence. Been spending a lot of time making memory bears for Hospice of Michigan so my crochet time was limited. Still making bears but trying to get to this wonderful forum at least every other day. I learned sooo much here and hope to learn more. Just want Tampa Doll to know that I still use my Tote to carry around my crochet projects. It still looks like new as I baby it like a coach purse. I have attached a few pictures of the memory bears that I have made. Cheryl
  4. Hey There Arlene I haven't been on this forum for a long time....life gets in the way sometimes. Thanks for the prayers. Cheryl

  7. Very pretty and very January feeling. I have been interested in making a polish doll for a long time. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you make. Happy early birthday to you and Tampa Guy. Later today....... OMG!....I was looking at some old patterns that I have and see that I asked you about the Polish Doll clothes you made from the International dolls book. Gotta keep better track of my patterns.
  8. I am sitting here enjoying my Christmas tree and watching Christmas movies and just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful happy Christmas Eve and Merry Christmas!
  9. Thanks all for the great info. I will be looking at the CAL. Aiming towards a twin sized afghan.
  10. Oh! I could certainly use this.
  11. Hello All Decided to start a Temperature Afghan for 2017. Has anyone done this before and if so what pattern did you use? I'm still searching for a pattern (probably end up with a ripple) but just thought I'd throw it out there for discussion. Hope everyone had a lovely, happy Thanksgiving. Cheryl
  12. My Grandmother taught me to crochet (holding the needle underhanded) when I was 10 years old. I stopped for a while but 30 years later I still remember what she taught me. I also have the first afaghan that I crocheted and it is still in good shape. She taught me well!
