  1. This just popped into my pea-brain: Do you have a friend who either crochets or wants to learn to crochet? Make a gift basket filled with crochet related items such as hooks, books, yarn, notions, etc.
  2. Not enough. Bad Marilyn ... bad, bad Marilyn!
  3. Hello Fellow Crocheters, I have not been here in eons ... so let me re-introduce myself. I'm Marilyn (aka Nevie) ... live in Las Vegas ... wonderfully married forever ... mother to four (now grown) ... mother-in-law to two fine young men ... grandmother to 1.75 kids (one here & one due in August) ... Navy veteran & now Navy mom. Besides crocheting I enjoy photography (wildlife & landscape), camping, beading & jewelry making, cooking & hosting themed parties/dinners, traveling, reading, shooting table-top suffleboard, sailing, riding trains, fishing, studying history, and spending precious time with family & friends. Looking forward to getting reacquainted with old friend & making some new friends! Hugs ... Marilyn
  4. When I have a project with a lot of repitition, I put on the TV and just listen to it as I merrily work my hook along ... in the spring it's Major League Baseball (always a game on in the afternoons) ... or a cooking show ... Dog Whisperer is another favorite ... and when I want to hear the bad guys go down I put on COPS. Happy Hooking ... Sing with me ... sung to the tune of '99 Bottle of Beer On The Wall' 88 granny squares to crochet, 88 granny squares, work that hook, make it around ... 87 granny squares to crochet 87 granny squares to crochet, 87 granny squares, work that hook, make it around ... 86 granny squares to crochet 86 granny squares to crochet, 86 granny squares, work that hook, make it around ... 85 granny squares to crochet OKAY ... I DON'T HEAR YOU SINGING LOUD ENOUGH ! ! ! LOL!
  5. As of January 9th ... I became a Grandma ... now for the 'Show & Tell' ... Just a few things I made for my new Granddaughter ... And the blankie ... And the angel who now blesses our lives ... Many Hugs ... Marilyn (aka Nevie)

  14. Years ago, with #10 cotton thread (bedspread weight cotton thread), I would crochet angel Christmas ornaments ... and I would put SOMETHING on them to make them stiff ... and I do remember it was NOT a sugar solution ... but rather a product I purchased. Does anyone know what this stiff stuff was?
