  1. Thank you ~ My tote came at the most opportune time, too . . . been tired of always trying to find a plastic bag big enough for my crochet projects on-the-go! LoL My Summer Flowers tote is SO much prettier! I wasn't expecting to be a receiver so quickly, tho ~
  2. That's pretty cool seeing a knitter at a hockey game! LoL But you have to say, we crocheters and knitters do get around, heh?
  3. Well, it's time to play catch-up since the holiday weekend and this whole week flew by! KatyAllen, your hats are great looking! Love the red one especially! Snowbear, glad to have you back with us! Sorry to hear that it's hubby's turn to be sick, but hope he gets better real soon. Prayers for you both! I am SO tickled to be a "baglady" in Mary Jo's tote group! It was such a surprise to be a receiver of one of her beautiful totes! This morning hubby brought in my package (wondering what I had ordered again ~ LoL), and helped to open it for me . . . I got the Summer Flowers tote #135. I love everything about it! GREEN, just for one, and the pretty rose on it, too. Also got a hot pad that matches my kitchen perfectly, and a pink row counter, which I've never used one before so this will be a treat, for sure ~ Thank you, again, Mary Jo! You're such a generous, sweet-natured person.
  4. Perfect name . . . Summer Flowers.
  5. It's gotta be MISSOURI, right? Kansas City is a twin city, and Pres. Truman's home is in our neck of the land, in Carthage. (and I got my June tote this morning ~ ) Thank you SO much, Mary Jo! I love it, and the hot pad and row counter, too! You didn't have to do it, girl! But you are so sweet and generous! I love my GREEN! and the hot pad goes perfectly in my kitchen ~
  6. We had a great weekend, started Friday. Had a reunion in Oklahoma Saturday, but went to see hubby's auntie Friday. Spent the night at a hotel, then headed south again. Everyone was nervous about the storms happening north of us, some decided to stay Saturday night at a hotel before heading to their homes. We went ahead and left for home. We some storms and hit rain between Sulphur Springs, Arkansas and Neosho, Missouri but nothing so bad as had to pull over . . . thank the Lord! Tornadoes were the biggest concern so we were watchful for them. Made it home before dark, and no rain or storms on the last hour of our trip ~ yay! My wonderful sis-n-law gave me ALL of her yarn and crochet books, too! Oh! boy! She started some small octagon squares, so I'm thinking of finishing up those with the yarn she gave me, and gift it to her for her birthday in December. I've also got a ball of real pretty Home Spun beige-white/Pearl?? yarn, too, that I may see if I have enough to make me a shoulder scarf. She had made herself a long shrug sweater from it that turned out really nice. So it looks like I'm still in the crocheting business ~ LoL Sounds like everyone has been having a great weekend, too. It's raining today, tho, so that takes care of my hankering for working outside. Gonna be a laundry-doing day, and then CROCHET! Hubby is working on my livingroom some more, getting the taping and mudding done. Then we'll get flooring for my craftroom and it will be done . . . just have to get everything sorted thru, still, and put where I want it. I want to paint my sewing cabinet, too, just to give it a new look (I painted it mauve about 10 yrs ago, so it's time for a change of color!). And we have to get my computer desk and file drawer over here so I won't have to chase between houses ~ LoL That will be so nice! Hope you all have a great week. Lovin' this summer time weather, for sure!
  7. You're welcome, Sandra, and glad to be of help to you.
  8. Glad you got the squares and hope they work well in your ghan.
  9. I have a suggestion, too, KatyAllen friend ~ How about proofing our posts before sending (or slow down typing ~ LoL)?? I flunked "hieroglyphics" in school ~ Note: On your last sentence for the squares to be made? What sizes are those suppose to be ~ 6-inch, ??? , 12-inch . . . just wondering. Thanks ~
  10. Did I make ya laugh today?
  11. Well, another cloudy day, but it's suppose to start clearing off later this afternoon ~ yay! I'm done with the storms showing their face! The rain has been good for the garden, tho, so can't complain too much. We'll be wishing for rainy and cooler weather soon enough when Summer gets a hold, right? I'll be working on some more crochet today , getting a few things made for a dear aunt we'll be visiting next weekend, and some items for the auction at the reunion, too. Hope ya'll have a great weekend, staying cool , or out of the weather if it's wet and rainy . Happy crocheting!
  12. You can still select "no notifications" if you want, Linda. (it's at the bottom of your post ~ "notify me of replies") As far as I can see, we still have our signature at the bottom?? You might have to go in and do any changes you want, tho . . . colors, font, etc. Hope this helps with navigation ~ Go to your Account Settings in your profile and you can see all the stuff you can change on it (scroll all the way down to see everything). There's a whole list! I just checked it out myself and did some changes on my account, too, Linda. I'm sure liking this change in CrochetVille!
  13. Sounds like you're gonna be having some fun with the cupcake decorating, heh? I know how much I enjoyed making my two kids' birthday cakes, too, when they were younger . . . so much fun. And to see the surprised looks on their faces, too. It's been awhile since I've done any cake decorating, but would love to try again some day. Not sure these ol' crippled up hands could handle it, tho ~ LoL Coffee sounds like a good thing, too, now that you mentioned it! It's gotten kinda cool this evening with the storms rollin' in. I'm sure Lil' Tribble will love the cupcakes! Don't forget to show pics, okay?
  14. Hey! ya'll ~ we had a terrific storm last night! Tornado warnings were going off all over in these parts! Sure got scary with all the high winds, hail and heavy rain, that's for sure ~ I wasn't quite ready to go to sleep so thought I'd read for a bit? The book I started just happened to be about a small town being hit by a tornado! LoL It's just been rainy and thundery all day, but at least no warnings! whew! Hubby just told me that we're under a tornado warning again for this evening . . . oh well. Gonna be a bumpy night.
  15. I'm just so glad that several of you gals, Brenda, were able to keep in some kind of touch with our KatyAllen. Infections like that are nothing to play around with, that's for sure. Just glad she was able to get herself to the hospital in due time. It sure had us all wondering and worrying.
