  1. Thanks! It'll be fun to participate again and I have some FABULOUS patterns to make squares.
  2. Hi everyone! Haven't been here in quite a while, but would love to start making squares again. I don't need any more but still want to participate. Katy, pm'ed you.
  3. Congratulations Katy! Its beautiful and much deserved. I've been AWOL for a long time, but it sure is great to see that Mary Jo is still being as generous as ever! Hope to join the bag lady club one day myself.
  4. Thanks everyone for your kind words! I must say, being off of work for 4 months was wonderful and I managed to learn to knit in that time. I'm still very much a beginner and it sure takes waaaay longer than crochet, but it is interesting. Hope you are all doing well and have a fabulous night!
  5. Hello everyone! It has been a long time since I last saw you all Obviously I haven't gone back and read the posts, since it has been well over a year and I would never get caught up. Not sure what all I've missed, but maybe someone can give me a summary of the real important things. Just hope you have all been well. As for me, I had brain surgery in May and I am finally back to work after 4 months. It all happened very quickly and I am just glad that it is over for now. I have suffered from I thought were migraines since I was 11 and had a few other symptoms through the years, but never really put it all together. It wasn't until my face and fingers started to go numb and I stopped being able to swallow solid food that I finally was diagnosed with a condition call Chiari 1 Malformation. Basically my brain had herniated into my spinal cord and was blocking the flow of CSF. So they went in, removed a small section of my skull, opened the covering of my brain and put a bovine patch in and removed part of my C1 and C2 vertebraes to make room for the fluid to flow. Recovery stunk but I feel great now and am hopeful that I can go a few years before I need a repeat surgery. There is no cure, just treatment, but I am lucky that it has worked so well for me, many other patients have not been so lucky. Anyway, blah blah blah, sorry for the "all about me" post, just didn't want you all to think that I up and deserted for no good reason. Hugs to all and hope you don't mind me slipping back in!
  6. Hello everyone. I hope you don't mind if I jump back in. I haven't been keeping up so I'll have to go back and catch up on posts. Just want you all to know that I've been thinking about you.:manyheart
  7. Very lovely as always! My wedding colors were pink and grey! Have always loved that combo.
  8. :hugCindy-I am so sorry for your loss! You are in my thoughts:manyheart
  9. Congratulations Linda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Hi everyone! Sorry that I have so bad about checking in:( It's been a really busy couple of weeks and I am trying to catch up on everything. I have a new grandbaby! Calvin Michael was born the 13th! He is too cute and looks just like his big sister! My ds(his daddy) left Monday for basic training so he only got to spend a week with his new baby. They are all having a difficult time adjusting to his being gone. I am so far behind on reading the posts that I can't personally comment of everything, but just know that I am thinking of you all and sending out positive thoughts to everyone!:manyheart
  11. Well, I am finally getting around to posting my colors and my pic from clue 1:
  12. Bought my yarn yesterday! Michaels had Waverly on clearance for $2.49, so I bought all but 3 skeins, since they only had two of my MC. Changed one of my contrast colors as well. Will take a pic when I have a few minutes!
  13. Ann! I chose the same theme for mine but using princess instead of the celadon and mauve glow will be my main color.
  14. Hi everyone! Been trying to catch up on the happenings in here! Tab-congrats on baby Elijah! Keep your head up, things will get better. Linda-so glad to hear that Kim is doing so well,she is one tough cookie that's for sure! Cindy and Marisa- hope they were good for you both. Julie-Glad to see you back:manyheart Joanne-take it easy and try not to work too hard. Hi to everyone else:hug It's been some rough going but think maybe I'm feeling more like myself again. Hopefully I'll keep moving in the right direction. My emotions are all over the place these days and that's unusual for me. Hope everyone has a great night.:manyheart
  15. Received a lovely square from Hope on Monday:cheer. Thanks so much, it was the bright spot in my day
