  1. Hey!!! I never thought of THAT!!!!! Now....to find a pattern...….
  2. I've been crocheting like it's going out of style!! In the past two weeks, I've made 17 little thread butterflies, 16 yarn can cozies, 3 Chemo Hats, 2 Flower earrings, 3 thread Granny Square bookmarks, 5 lacy thread bookmarks, 5 lip balm key chains, 1 ponytail hat, 2 slouchy hats, 3 baby hats, 4 cobweb catchers, and put thread lace edgings on 3 pairs of gloves!! These will be sold at our yearly Craft Shows in November and December. (I HOPE!!!) I keep thinking: "That's enough, girl!!" Then my fingers get to itching again--and there I go, making something else!!! (HELP ME!!! I CAN'T STOP!!!!) Maybe I can get some afghans done for the Veterans and some prayers shawls for our local Hospice, now!! The funny thing is, I've been retired for years now, and I've never been this "obsessed" before!!! I think I must have the feeling that I CAN'T get outside now, so I HAVE to do SOMETHING!!! (My hubby and I get out almost every day and ride down to the river, and about town, so it isn't like we're locked in!!!)
  3. My hubby has also been getting our groceries--I was recently diagnosed with COPD, so I'm trying to keep as far away from "germs" as much as possible! He's doing pretty well, but of course he and I have jointly shopped for groceries for years, so we're used to whatever the other person wants or needs! (Did that cantaloupe taste any better?? 😜)
  4. Mary Jo--it's NEVER too early for coffee!!! I drink decaf all day and all night long! Delish!!!
  5. A Nursing home! What a wonderful idea!!! We currently donate shawls and lapghans to our local nursing homes--but I really like that idea too!
  6. WOW!!! JUST WOW!!
  7. WOW!! It loosens paint!! But what does it do to the hands???

    Baby whale

    Tell her, for me, that her whale is absolutely darling!! Did she name it?
  11. Hi! I'm also from Indiana--Vincennes. Welcome to the Ville!
  12. Darski--It's so good to have you back, crocheting with us again!!!
  13. That happened at our Prayer Shawl Ministry--they weren't handing the prayer shawls out! So we just started donating them to some of the local nursing homes! The ladies (and some guys!!) are really thrilled with them!!!
