  1. That is a gorgeous set, Krys!! And thanks for the tip to spray these things with Fabric Protector--why in the world didn't I think of that!!??
  2. And that, my friends, is why I almost always donate my afghans to military hospitals, and nursing homes--I'll never know what becomes of them!!
  3. I AGREE with you! Even though I'm retired and now have all the time in the world--I have added so many patterns to my collection that I'm afraid I won't live long enough to do them all!!!
  4. I really admire you guys for sending so many masks!! I don't sew, but I crocheted about 100 or so "Ear Reliefs" that attach to the elastic on the masks, so that they don't irritate the backs of the ears. They're really quick to make--the only problem I've had is finding 3/4" or 1" buttons for them. I've handed them out to one of our local grocery stores, and my friends at our local Hospice., so far. I'm still making them--for a local assisted living place where my Crochet Club meets every Friday.
  5. I apologize for offending you! I'm not criticizing your language--just pointing out some things. I have several friends for whom English is a second or third language, and they appreciate any corrections I make. My apologies for not knowing this was offensive to you!!! I promise not to do that again!
  6. I'm the same way, Krys! I don't think I've made anything for myself for years!! Everything I crochet goes for gifts, or sold to other people! Oh!! I forgot--I use 2 crocheted tote bags that I made! I carry ongoing projects in them when I travel.
  7. This double rainbow was also visible in southern Indiana!!The same description, too!
  8. Hi, Krys, Just a little correction here--so that you don't "scare" anyone--those streets are called dead end streets, not death end. That just means that they don't go anywhere--they just end.

    Ear Savers

    Krys--the cotton yarn doesn't stretch as much as regular yarn does.
  10. I'm right there with you, Mary Jo! When I was young, I couldn't afford all those fancy things that they wore--now that I'm old, I just plain don't care!!!
  11. One of our neighbors made the stupidest comment one day a couple of weeks ago---somehow we got on the subject of the quarantine, and he said: "That's just so STUPID!!! We have flu every year!! They don't need to shut down the whole world for it!!" I just looked at him, and thought--"yeah, and YOU'RE just stupid too"!! But, in his defense, he's still pretty young, and still very healthy, so he doesn't really understand! I don't know the numbers for the "flu" that usually goes around every year, but it certainly isn't as deadly as this one!! I, for one, being in my 76th year, and not the healthiest old woman there is, appreciate the preventive measures they've taken! I can only hope this young man doesn't regret his words!
  12. Do your finished products have to be mailed or delivered to the recipients? If that is a problem, you might consider what my group does: we have a Veterans' office that takes local veterans to the hospitals, and they take our afghans when they do that. I can't find their official name in the phone book, so I'll have to get back to you, if you're interested.
