  1. Missed the check-in yesterday.... WTD +21, YTD - 196
  2. Lots of plans! I make baby, child, and teen afghans for the local children's hospital. I was just told they needed blankets and so many gorgeous colors went on sale. It was meant to be! ❤️
  3. The sale yarn is still coming in - Going to make you all look good this week! Hopefully next week will be the last shipment. I did manage to use 1.37 miles of yarn this week, though! Stashbusting CAL 2020 - WTD -125, YTD -217
  4. I was bad. I was very, very bad. But the clearance sale at Michael's MADE me do it! 🤣 And they were the big 1000 yard skeins. Checking in today since I'll be away from service tomorrow. WTD -20, YTD -92
  5. Hello - My name is Tricia and I have a yarn problem... Excited to join this CAL!
  6. A quick peak at my afghan so far.... Per my gauge it'll be 5ft by 7ft - Large enough to cuddle under on rainy days!
  7. 2020 is an iconic year - One that I wanted to take on a special project for and I hope others will join along with me! I have been eyeing temperature blankets for years and decided this was the year to go for it! Each day the temperature is recorded by the color yarn you use. You can use as many or as few colors as you like. Since we all live in different places, it will be fun to see how different each looks! A couple links are below with yarn ideas or you can get creative (scrap buster?). Straight rows? Ripple? Corner to Corner? Your choice! I’m going to use ten colors with the low temperature on the left side of the row and the high temperature on the right. The Weather Channel website has listings of each day’s recorded temps for the month of January – I just went back and wrote all of them down in a journal to get started this weekend. Can’t wait to see your projects! https://www.allfreecrochet.com/Crochet-Afghan-Patterns/Crochet-Temperature-Blanket https://craftwarehouse.com/knit-or-crochet-a-temperature-blanket-free-printable-chart/
  8. This year's baby shower was a fabulous success!! :clap Thank you - Thank you - Thank you to all who helped with donations. It is such a moving experience to give someone who is almost due their first baby items. I'm not sure you can understand how much this support means for these families. Shower Totals: Blankets - 38 Hats - 32 Dresses - 3 Bloomers - 1 Bibs - 14 Booties - 2 Toys - 8 Incredible!! The New Beginnings Pregnancy Center is going to feature this shower in an upcoming newsletter publication. They've asked me to write the article. Can't wait to share it with you all when it's ready! Merry Christmas to you all!
  9. Sorry to hear you've been having more struggles! Take care of yourself and your familly.
  10. Oh goodness - No apologies! Take care of yourself and your family first. When you do get it in the mail, let me know so I can keep an eye out.
  11. Those are cute!! I just made a couple this weekend, also. They're quick and easy!
  12. Thank you, also, Granny Square and Becky!
  13. Those are good ideas! Something the size of an ornament that can be tacked up in their room or by their bed!
  14. I just found out I will be going with my son carolling at a nursing home next Saturday! I wanted to bring some little goodies with us.... I plan on taking a basket with small candies for those that are able to come out to the 'performance'. HOWEVER, I'd like a little something special to take to those that weren't able to get out of their rooms and who don't get many visitors. :cheerCome on ladies!! I know you have them!!!! :cheer Any cute, quick ideas??
  15. Love this blanket!! You did a great job
