  1. 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?
  2. I think you're at the old page here, KatyAllen ~ We aren't here any longer.
  3. Oh, how pretty! I love all the colors, too!
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. Would it be okay to post my 2017 scores, from what I can figure I've done lately?? Kind of a practice run for me, so I know what I'm doing . . . I think? LoL WTD: -1 (got a ball gave to me last weekend) YTD: +7 (skeins and 1 ball I used up in that Log Cabin afghan I finished last week)
  8. Yay! And That's great that you were able to get the new thread started, Katy ~ I remember what a hassle it was with downloads, back when we still had to use dial up internet in these parts (some still do, since we don't have fiber-optics). We've got Hughes Net now, which is satellite service, but it still has it's glitches, too, when clouds interfere or the sun activity affects service . . . it's always something, when you live in the farmlands or wooded areas ~ LoL ~ keeps life exciting! Looks like your hubby got the furnace part just in the neck of time, heh? Glad you weren't h
  9. Well, that's a good thing, Lyn ~ Maybe he's just having gas pains from certain foods he's been eating?? Just a thought. Sometimes certain meds might cause those kinds of pains, too, like indigestion. It sure keeps a person guessing, tho. My Jim has pains in his chest at times, too, when he walks too fast or too far, but his stress test and sonogram all came back "normal", too. He's got a good, strong heart. Sometimes I've thought it may be caused from not being as active since his cancer bout, then when he over-exerts it makes his chest feel heavy or aches. Being a little on the heavy
  10. Thank you! Thank you! I'm a little backwards this week, so it seems . . . I've made two birthday gifties, but no squares to send with them yet ~ LoL Surely TODAY I can get some done and ready to mail ~
  11. Well, after posting a reply to PineKnott here (without realizing "where" I was at ~ LoL), I read over the rules of joining the game here and how it works, and this sounds like fun . . . and something that would be beneficial to my using up all my skeins and balls of yarn! I'd like to give this a try for the coming year ~
  12. Wow! This is how many projects you've done for the year, Lyn?!! That's awesome! LoL I think I can count on one hand how many things I've gotten done this year. Hoping this coming year will prove more productive for me ~ Come to think of it, I think I've done better towards the end of this year.
  13. You sound about like me, Sandra ~ that Autumn Log Cabin crocheted afghan I've been trying to finish for the past 2 years has finally gotten finished (last Thursday!) and reached Hawaii this week, to my son and dght-n-law. Yeah, when you don't feel good, it sure takes its toll on how much you feel like doing, if or when your body decides to cooperate. I'm hoping this next year will proof more accomplished for me ~ LoL Hope you'll get to feeling better soon, too! I've got your list of "square needs" that you posted, saved so I can start working on some more for you, okay? (I'm sti
  14. Maybe you or someone else can tell Katy how to open a new thread . . . I don't think it's very hard, is it?? I think there is a button at the top here that lets you open a "new" thread . . . yeah, it says "start new topic" ~ If she knows how to "cut and paste", she can copy the opening post in this thread, then paste it in the new thread. I hope this helps some? Not trying to upset the apple cart, okay? Any of us are willing to be a help to you, KatyAllen, okay? We love ya!
