  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!
  15. It's been years since we've been to the K.C. zoo! I couldn't remember whether they would be opened or not in winter. Sounds wonderful, tho, when you do get to go in the winter ~ Since the Springfield Zoo is a bit smaller, I don't know how their winter schedule is for the animals. Need to find out I guess ~ It's just small enough to where we don't get worn out while walking thru the whole park.
  16. I've got my hamburger thawing so I can put on a pot of chili for dinner. This is good weather for it, ya think? Looks like it could snow any minute here! New Year's is coming so won't be surprised if we get some ice and/or snow.
  17. Bum deal, KatyAllen! Nothing like losing your heat when temps are dropping toward 0* . . . hope you are getting warmed up again. Did hubby or the service fella get you back up and running again? We've got a propane heater as backup for our CH/A unit, so make it extra secure during winter temps falling. You take care and stay warm, okay?
  18. LoL ~ oh, you people and your nice Florida sunny weather in winter! I don't think our zoos are open in this region when the temps start falling, and the ice and snow start flying. There's a real nice one that hubby and I like to go to in Springfield, Missouri, just about an hour or so south from us. The Kansas City Zoo is about 2-1/2 hrs north of us, and they get a lot more snow and ice up there than we do down here. I grew up in southern California so didn't see much of a winter at all, mostly 50*+ and rainy. But I do like the seasonal changes in the midwest ~ Sounds like a fun ti
  19. You sound like us here in Mindenmines, Missouri ~ LoL ~ we're in the "dead zone" for our cell phone service . . . have to walk down the driveway to the highway to get reception. (you'll see a lot of Minden-ites walking the streets to get reception, too, so everyone gets to know their neighbors in these parts ~ LoL That is one reason we don't invest in a smart phone, too. It's bad enough getting cell phone calls thru our land line, and then getting dropped calls or bad reception thru those callers. Really frustrating. We tried getting a satellite phone service thru US Cellular, but that w
  20. Good morning to you, too, Pineknott ~ It's cold and gray out here, too, about 28* I think right now. I'm planning on getting in some crocheting today, making Granny squares for December (before December ends ~ LoL), and then getting some squares worked on for Owlvamp, too, I hope . . . depends on how fast I am today ~ I got a towel topper made last night, and am working on another one this morning-afternoon. Hope your Jimmy does well on his tests, and it will be an easy fix for him.
  21. I'm still in the "caveman days" ~ LoL I only use a desktop computer (Windows 7), and my cell phone is from back in 2004 ~ Haven't made that initial step into the "smart phone" relm yet ~ LoL I know, I'm stubborn I guess ~ It doesn't help being in the Dead Zone, either, here in Mindenmines, Missouri with our cell phone.
  22. I like Pineknott's suggestion of adding our birthdate in our signature ~ That's cool! And easy!
  23. That's a good idea, too, Lyn ~ I've got mine on my profile, but think I'll add it on my siggy, too. Thanks!
  24. Thanks, Sandra ~ I'll add your squares to the list then. I'm thinking I have some bright yellow and paddy green, and maybe some blue.
