  1. Hello! all ~ just thought I'd pop in here and say "Howdy!" Hope everyone is doing good and surviving all the storms, flooding, tornadoes and whatever else is happening weather-wise. Outside of the smoke shop next door loosing its roof, and it landing in our side yard a couple of months ago, we haven't been doing too badly with the high winds here. The owners gave it to us to salvage, so hubby got it all torn apart and stacked at the other house. Been busy packing up all our household stuff since we finally have our little house sold. We'll be relocating south, into Oklahoma. Got a house we're working on closing at this time. They were hoping to have both closings reasonably within a few days apart, but you know how that can go at times ~ 😕 Anyway, we are now moving everything back over to the other house next door, since it didn't sell yet. I hate that house!! But have to be thankful for having it still available to live in until we can head south. I will have everything moved by this next weekend (hubby will help with the main furniture, which isn't much ~ bed setup, 3 chests, a dresser, loveseat, recliner and swivel rocker, kitchen table and chairs, and sewing cabinet; oh, and the computer desk with hutch. Glad that we live sparsely in times like this! LoL We had our 16-ft trailer stolen in broad daylight, right from under our noses, about 4 wks ago, too. I guess there was a hit in several areas at that same time around 11:00 a.m. so they're thinking it was a gang-kinda thing . . . which is really rare in our parts. (People are really going nuts these days, so it seems!) Haven't done any crocheting in quite awhile, and won't be until our moving is done. I think I've kept a project or two handy for bordom's sake ~ Ya'll take care and stay safe. Oh! and I won't have internet for about a month either, so won't be around after July 1st. I'll try to catch up after that, tho.
  2. Well, low and behold! I tried my bookmark for the group and it said "it couldn't be found"?? Then just for the heck of it, I tried the old link from the notifications once I got here ~ now it said "you don't have permission"?? 😕 Hmmm. But anyhow, thank you, Katy for sending the new link to the group. It works . . . at least for now, heh? Been staying busy, and now dealing with storms and tornado warnings, etc. Had a big wind sweep thru last night and took the roof off of the smoke shop next door to us . . . and it landed in our yard ~ 😛 Guess hubby just got himself some building material, ya think? LoL I love the bracelet cups you made, Katy ~ adorable and so useful! Koala ~ I love your little mermaid and "purple people-eater"?? So cute! Our new smart phone has really came in handy for checking on the weather updates around here. Trying to get the hang of using it (hubby doesn't deal with it too well, but he does like his new flip phone). We finally disconnected from our landline, again, and saving about $30/month or more so far! Yay! Hope everyone is staying safe and well during these storms . . . they're SO BIG now days!! 😮 Take care.
  3. LoL ~ I love your Hairy Harry, Mary Jo! The kids will love this fella for sure! (you know you're gonna have to make a BUNCH of these guys, right? ) He sure brought out the "hide-n-seek" members here, heh?
  4. I think you're at the old page here, KatyAllen ~ We aren't here any longer.
  5. Oh, okay ~ That sounds great! Hope you can get 'er going again . . . can hardly wait to read all the wishes ~
  6. Congratulations! BabyPoohsMom ~ on being a Bag Lady! Love your tote, and what a nice Christmas gift, too ~
  7. Hope you have a wonderful day, too, Mary Jo. Many of us wish we were there in Florida right now . . .
  8. I was just thinking, Terri? Can you start a new thread for the Wish List, and then each of us post our list in it as a "comment" or post?? Not sure how it worked before, been too long to remember for me. Maybe that would take the burden off of one person trying to keep up with changes or wishes being fulfilled? We'd be responsible for our own entries and updates, then ~
  9. I've missed the Wish List, too . . . so I'm happy to see it on its way back now ~ It was nice sending little surprise gifties to others, and ever so often get a surprise in return, or unexpected giftie from an unknown person . . . that was always so sweet, and such a Day-brightener, too. While going thru the cancer ordeal with Hubby 4 yrs ago, I know it really uplifted my spirits to have someone thinking of me and my sweetheart ~ Then returning the favor to someone else also helped me to think of others around me . . . got my mind off of our situation a little. I've been so blessed by the Wish List and the RAoK (random acts of kindness).
  10. Oh, how pretty! I love all the colors, too!
  11. I'm getting ready to start working on some more granny squares, using up a lot of my little balls of left-over yarn. I even had room now in one of my tubs to empty a big bag of yarn into ~ My craftroom closet is looking better now!
  12. I'm so sorry for your friend, Mona ~ I'm sure your shawl will brighten her day. Sounds pretty! I love the HomeSpun yarn, even tho it can be a pain to work with (at least for me). I made a hooded scarf a couple of years ago, in deep tones, for myself . . . ended up giving it to my sweet dght-n-law ~ Prayers for your friend.
  13. That's great, Mona! I bought some Mandala/Sphinx yarn to make myself a shawl ~ "Lost in Time". It's such a beautiful shawl that Mijo Crochet designed . . . hope mine turns out just as pretty. (sorry I can't find my link to post to her) She's got several beautiful shawl patterns ~ she works with a lot of colors and blends. What's the name of the shawl you're working on? and the color(s) you're using?
