  1. Do you have a pattern for the bitty bunny, and the bitty people?
  2. WELCOME BACK MARY JO!!!! We've all been worried about you, and praying for you!!
  3. BEAUTIFUL!!!
  4. Never feel stupid for having any problems when you're learning--we've ALL been there---several times!!! We're here to help, and if one of us can't figure it out--someone else will come along with the solution! Just have fun!! Don't get discouraged! It really looks like a beautiful pattern!
  5. Welcome to the 'Ville! It's pretty much the same items as redrosesdz mentioned, here in Indiana. Afghans and shawls usually sell only as special orders, because of color preferences, size, etc., so we usually only have a sample of them to show, in case they want to special order something. Good luck--and remember to have fun!!
  6. The frog is ADORABLE, Ania! I LOVE it!!!
  7. Welcome to the 'Ville, Donna! I'm also retired, and spend about the same amount of time crocheting each day! I teach 3 different classes for seniors and anyone who wants to learn. We make lapghans for Veterans' hospitals, and prayer shawls for our local hospice. I also make up special orders for people--that helps us with the cost of the yarn for our projects! Glad to have you join us!
  8. The pink Camo colorway sounds beautiful! that's one of my favorite Red Heart colors!!
  9. Beautiful tote, Mary Jo--as usual! I love Autumn! I can hardly wait til the crisp days! I really don't get along well with sweaty hot summer!!!
  10. I am simply astonished at your doilies! Every time I see the "next" one, I say: "Oh! That's my favorite one!" Then I see the next!!!
  11. Google "granny square" for easy basic patterns. It is an easy pattern to learn. Let us know if you have any problems with it!
  12. Hey, Kris, thanks for the tip! I'll look into that camera! We have--literally--my hubby collects!--dozens of cameras, but I can't find one in his collection that suits me! Thanks for the advice!
  13. We watched the solar eclipse today--I watched from our Senior Center patio, and hubby Dave watched from the George Rogers Clark Memorial, on the Wabash River. We only had 94% coverage, but it was pretty awesome! Hope we're still around for the next one--it 's supposed to be a total eclipse here then!
  14. Those are absolutely adorable, Mary Jo!! Awesome! Are those the little 5" dolls from Herrschners?
