  1. Wow! I've finished my last afghan! That is 9 afghans total. They are all completely different and many are my own patterns. I haven't had a chance to take photos yet, but I will. I've also completed my snowflake ornaments, blocked-stiffened and ready to give. This was my first time to make them and I am very pleased with the outcome! I tried different stiffeners and I have decided I prefer the cornstarch method. Again, photos to come. The other project I have been working on is American girl doll clothes for my granddaughters. I have been very busy creating my own patterns as I haven't found too many out there. I think they will be pleased with their gifts. Some of the clothes are knit instead of crocheted, and I am sewing up some more clothes. Again, photos to come later. I am currently working on towel toppers for Christmas. Mine are the buttonless type, as I don't care for the type with buttons. I made a really cute pointsetta one and a wreath so far. I really need to get the camera out! Happy Hooking!
  2. Well, I've finally finished my afghan and it is very pretty! I love the border. My daughter says it looks like snowflakes around it. I haven't taken photos yet, but I will and get them posted.
  3. Very nice! Thanks for the pattern. The bag is perfect for baby items, make-up, etc. It will make a very nice gift.
  4. I have not been on for a while. My computer had to go in for repairs (almost 1 month!). I have been busy crocheting, just not on my snowfake afghan. I still have to sew all of the together! I will have it done by Christmas though!
  5. Sorry, I don't have a budget. I used Joann coupons when they are available. I plan for projects and buy the yarn for that project (and a little more just so I don't run out). If I find a sale on yarn and I like it, I buy it. Then I go forever without buying any so I can use up my stash. I would say last year I spent aprox. $900. on yarn. It was used for Christmas gifts, birthday gifts and new baby gifts. I did make towel toppers and wash cloths for everyone just because. So, to answer the question, probably about $75. a month averaged out.
  6. I just finished my purple ripple afghan for my daughter-in-law. I will post a picture tomorrow. I really love how it turned out. It has 4 shades of purple (her favorite color) and it is so soft and comfy. I want to keep it for myself. 2 completely finished, 3 in progress, and 5 more after that.
  7. Yep, a head turner alright! Very unusual. I could see my niece wearing it.
  8. Wow! I just got back from vacation and everyone is going strong on their projects! I love the purse Krystal! Very cute. I haven't had time to read all the other posts yet, but I will.
  9. I always over-pack. I never seem to have the time to get as much done as I would like. But then, it is vacation! Have fun and enjoy your trip.
  10. Thanks for the heads up. I'm pouting-I just got back on after a week of vacation and no internet!! Not fair! Oh, well I need to work on my afghans anyway. I'm looking forward to a "new and improved" board.
  11. Great idea! What a nice treat to have your book signed by the author!
  12. Welcome from Michigan and a fellow Grandma.
  13. I love the fact that he is weather-proof! Great idea. Very cute. You must use a ton of bags to have enough to hook him and stuff him!
  14. Love the frog! I bet hubby will appreciate his hat all the more! If the gauge didn't work out right, I figure the pattern was off! It couldn't be me, could it?
