  1. Hi everyone. I finally got cards out today. I am getting more and more slack from year to year in getting them out. I didn't even set up our big tree this year and just put up a tabletop, fiber-optics one. I'm tired of doing all the work... We got a little snow and it ended this morning so I just got back from errands and can finally take a short break. Dd will be home tomorrow from college for a few weeks and getting up to her college, tomorrow won't be fun what with all the crazy drivers. The snow is so pretty, though, and at least today, it isn't as brutally cold as yesterday. Hopefully, I will check in more regularly in the New Year.:) I hope everyone is doing well and it is sad that Tampadoll won't be making anymore Crochetville bags, but Tampadoll, you are deserving of retiring. Eleven years is amazing and you have brightened so many people's lives.:) Anyway, let's hope next year will be a better one and that Crochetville will still be here.:)-haha
  2. Hi everyone.:) Our snow melted a lot today and is now black ice since it is night time. Thanks so much for thinking of me, Brenda. I received the adorable card and beautiful ornmament in my mail today.:) You are so thoughtful.:)
  3. Hi everyone. Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Not much new here, but wanted to pop in to say, "hello".:)
  4. Morning everyone! I've been trying to catch up on all I've missed but there's too much to read. I feel so bad for you, Katy, about the kitty but maybe you can think about adopting another one and see if Max will accept it. I love the blanket you made and can't wait to see what you come up with for the pass outs for the kids. Carol. the "Snow White" dress is beautiful! Brenda- I love all your goodies! Pineknott-that is awesome that you are getting into an exercise routine. I certainly wish I had, after going up and down 6 flights of stairs with heavy college stuff for dd, a few days ago. My body is still feeling it and at some point, I need to cut parents' grass later this week or early next week. We'll see how quickly my body recuperates. Hope everyone's day is a good one.:)
  5. Good morning everyone! Just want to say "hi". My Summer isn't going that well but i am still hanging in there.:)
  6. Morning everyone! Love the picture, Katy. Thank goodness that tree didn't fall on anything. Hope all the Fathers had a nice Father's Day. French toast sounds yummy!!! My hubby got a steak on the grill. I hope no one gets bad storms today. Have a good one.:)
  7. Good morning, everyone. I haven't been around much so my computer time has been cut down dramatically. Very hot here and even though hubby and I got an A/C and put in for my parents, I come home to a hot place with no fan taken out yet nor my A/C set up. I hope to get a chance this morning before heading out. We really need some rain and it does look cloudy here, so just maybe..... It's too hot to crochet so I have been bringing my tatting along with me. It is a great portable project. Two family members are in the hospital- one with a broken neck from an accident avoiding a woodchuck and the other with 3 stints in her heart. It sure makes you realize how things can change in an instant, in life. Have a wonderful day, everyone.
  8. Good morning to everyone! It was a nice and peaceful weekend. Yesterday was back to the "grind". I had to pick hubby up from the airport. He was sweltering in Orlando for the weekend while here in Ct., we had chilly, wet weather and I was fighting a battle with squirrels going up into our eaves. I solved that problem. Then I had to go and cut parents' grass because it is wetter today and today I need to cart one of my dd's back and forth to work. That is great to get all those crochet goodies, Lovin2crochet. I bet your grandkids are getting big, CShort. I love the hats, the tote and I am glad more members are checking back in.:) Have a nice day, everyone.
  9. Good morning everyone! I am finishing up my coffee and then it's off to another day.:). Sure could use another cup to get me going but no such luck. We have rain here. Not enough yardwork is getting done here. I painted the bathroom when it was raining the other day so I have some ambition at least. I just am not home long enough to make meaningful progress. Hope everyone has a nice day.:)
  10. I hope you figured it out. If not, let us know the name of the pattern and who it is designed by. Maybe someone on here has made it and is very familiar with the pattern.
  11. Love it!!! Unfortunately, it reminds me of all the weeding that I need to do.
  12. Hi everyone! I am glad the forum is back and I am excited, like you BGS, that I can do emoticons on my iPad now!!! Hooray!! I have missed all of you. Happy Birthday to Little Tribble! I am glad he had a fun day!
  13. Hi all! We've been getting the rain here too, Tampadoll. It came after I did the weeding and planting, so everything has been getting lots of water on its own. Because it's been so wet, I didn't make the trek to dd's college to bring some of her accumulated things back. She is on the 6th floor and I really am not looking forward to it. I will have to go this week, at some point. Katiebug- I love the squares and the chicks are soooo darn cute! Pineknott- that is too bad about the fires.
  14. Bgs, thank you so much for sending me a Bday card and for the wonderful goodies!
  15. Whoever sent Owlvamp out the crochet hooks and folding scissors, she received them in the mail and is so happy that you thought of her. She is still unable to log into crochetville and wanted me to pass this along to all of you. She has tried everything she has been told to do, but has not been able to resolve her issue. Lea- it sounds like you had a really nice time with the family. How cute is your grandson with the rabbit ears!! Bgs- I love your newest stockings. You are so ambitious!
  16. Well, I have most of my basket together!. The doll I tested for LOH is complete so she will also get blesed. To all of you who celebrate Easter, "Have a Happy one!
  17. Checking in..... Busy getting my Easter basket stuff together. I cleaned the napkins and did the cookies. I made smaller loaves of bread this year and didn't dye any eggs. If I get a chance, tomorrow, I'll take a photo of it, put together. The basket will get blessed by the Priest on Saturday at noon, and then we can start celebrating. Right now, I am so tired from being on my feet all day, I am ready to drop. Not much else is new, except for 40 min, yesterday morning, my cat disappeared, in the house, before I went out. I left without knowing where he went or what I was to do if he didn't turn up, when I came home. When I got back, it seems that I closed him in, under the bathroom sink. I didn't remember going in there, and he wasn't crying to get out. It hit me, that in my mad frenzy of leaving in the morning, I went in the bathroom to get the laundry out of there and I opened under the sink to retrieve Chlorox Shower Cleanup. I sprayed it on the tiles in the tub, put it back under the sink, and never saw the cat go under there at all.-haha What a mischievous cat! He really gave me a big scolding!!!
  18. Piscescrocheter72- I love your squares and stockings. I am doing a test for Little Owl Huts that is taking up all of my spare time.
  19. Thanks, Lovin2Crochet- for the Birthday card that came in the mail. I love the cute thread angel.. That was a pleasant surprise. We've also had wet, windy and miserable weather. Today, the sun finally came out. I am so behind in my gardening.
  20. Hey Katiebug, why did you send the rain over to our way??? -haha Anyway, I hope your wrist and hands improve quickly. Yesterday was a nice day here but by the time I was home and could do some weeding, it was too late to go outside. I had too many household chores to do, inside. Well, hope everyone is doing well and hope all of you have a nice day.
  21. Hi everyone! Boy has it been busy on here (it's tough trying to keep up with all the posts). I'm so sorry about your knee, Tampadoll. Hubby and I get foot cramps often. I hope it's feeling better. I also remember Dobermama and she will be in my prayers. Snowbear, I really hope that your intestinal problems are minor and will also pray for you. Weather was great here today after a rainy weekend along with rain on Mon. and Tues. Hubby and I went to the movies over the weekend to see "Kong" and loved it.
  22. Hi Becky! Great job on everything!
  23. I know it's been a while so I just want to check in and say "hi". DD had Spring Break last week when we got our foot of snow and ice precipitation- it was an awful week for her because she had a big project along with a quiz to take. With two days unable to travel, we were scrambling to pick up art supplies; take photos and get the photo mounted for a display; not including how she was to glue her project and photo to have it look professional with no air bubbles. To top it off, she forgot things to bring back that I had to mail. The weather is nice today and the snow is melting. I love birds in general and felt bad that they were chirping away after our snow and couldn't get any food. I throw bread out for them often, but seagulls and geese can be very aggressive when they get used to being fed by humans. They also make a mess. We are told not to feed the geese in our park or we can get fined. There are classes to teach how to oil their eggs to limit the population. I think it is mean but oh well. We had seagulls a few weeks ago in the pond that were gorgeous. One caught a fish. The water in the pond is salt mixed with fresh so there are many interesting things that live in it.
  24. Good morning. It will be a busy day so I need to guzzle down my coffee and get going. I love all the sewn items you have made, CShort. I can only imagine how much you paid for the fabric. Some can be very costly by the yard, especially the upholstery ones. The novelty fabrics that I look for, are either non-existent or way too much to spend by the yard.
  25. Just want to quickly check in and say "hi." Happy Valentine's Day and Welcome, Charis! We used to travel every Summer to NH, when kids were little, and have had some fun times in the White Mountains.
