    not very long! summer of 2008
  1. Hello from Davenport, Iowa!!! What part are you from?
  2. Thanks for the tips, Gran. I just LOVE doing things like this!!! I'm such an old fashioned girl at heart.
  3. Thanks! I will check it out and the links when you get to them. This sounds like fun!!
  4. I have some of the shaffer ones from when I took calligraphy in college. I loved using them. I would really like to use the old fashioned dip ones. How do you get started? Where can I find supplies?
  5. How awful!! Sometimes they ACT like they are listening and then you find out they didn't HEAR what you said at all!!
  6. It's just a number. I was born on Friday the 13th, turned 13 on the 13th, and lived at 1313 13th Ave.
  7. This helped me with an afghan I just made. I put the yarn balls in zip lock bags and closed them enough to let the yarn come out but not the ball. They unwound just fine in the bag by themselves. I had thought about getting some special containers I saw made for t his with a hole in the top for the yarn to come out, but the zip lock bags worked well for me.
  8. Wow, that is gorgeous! I'm unfamiliar with how this works.... is someone randomly picked to receive it as a surprise?
  9. Sure is!!! I have to make this one DB's mom. She's a penguin fanatic.
