  1. neat :clap I like your color selections:clap


    I printed out the instructions :) and took them into my personal crocheting diva (Mary Jo) and requested a few:D


    she did ask though "what size hook :think" I said "oh I don't care" :lol

  2. This is a revelation, I know I am allergic to newspaper print ink as many

    times as soon as I start reading the evening paper I start to sneeze and my eyes water.


    You don’t want to be around me when I reading the Sunday papers. lol


    Tampa Doll (Mary Jo) has algeries to everthing. We discovered about 10 years

    ago, when she was have frequent headaches, she went and had test done.

    We never related it to all the crocheting she was doing, with different yarn and dye colors.


    So now after medication, inhalers and monthly allergy needles for the last 8 years. With the approximate cost of thousands of dollars she can sit all day and crochet without any side effects. lol I’m a lucky Guy lol

  3. lol @ Roli I stand corrected!:oops

    Roli after 15 years in the TampaBay area I get cold when the temp goes

    below 70. lol (nothing to do with me getting older)


    I think she will like it whether she uses it or not. It’s still something made

    by her cousin. Maybe a little crocheted ducky or toy to go with it.


    But then I like crocheted toys. :)

  5. So I’m sitting outside, you can’t see me but I’m right outside

    the window enjoying the warmth of the sun and I’m thinking

    do I really need to cut the grass ?



    Out comes Tampa Doll and says

    "what you think about this?":hook th_SpringFlowers.jpg (clickable)




    I reply, "I love it. It doesn’t need watering, pruning or fertilizing."


    She didn’t laughbiggereek.gif but she did smile,




  6. Some things you see and you just have to comment on, and this

    is one of them.


    First: It’s amazing and reflects your artistry


    Second: there really is a thin line between genius and insanity. lol


    Third: I called Tampa Doll back to the computer room asking

    “I’d like one of these to put my beer mug on†her response was

    nonverbal but she did respond by smacking me upside my head

    upon leaving the room. j/k ;)

  7. lol@Elizabeth :D (threeolivemartini)




    When Mary Jo was making that Leprechaun. I was sitting in the recliner; we were watching ghost story on TV. I looked over at the sofa and see a (bald) hairless clown doll laying there in different stages of dress. Finally I said “That clown is freaking me out†:eek she replied “it’s not a clown it's a Leprechaun named O’Malley and it’s going to have red hairâ€



    Believe me it looks much better now:P then on that dark and scary night lol

  8. pirato-map.jpg


    Say hello to Dread Produce Piramato Roberta.


    Sailing the seven aisles of the supermarket in search of treasure, Roberta is one of the most feared piramatoes around. And who wouldn't be terrified by a piramato of legendary reputation, especially one wielding a plastic knife?






    :clapvery good make more:clap


    :D lol I’ll have to keep a lookout:( vrysmYoungTommy2.gif:( from our island because dangerous pirates are ever present in the waters off the coast of Florida.




    I’m sure Captain Piramato Roberta and First Mate Elane the mutant cherry are the most feared :eek piramatoes around. :) lol

  9. Killer Tommy :devilth_AKillerTommy2.jpg (clickable) from Jersey spent most of his


    youth:blush th_AYoungTommy1.jpg (clickable) hanging around the South Jersey tomato farms.


    He successfully hid from and evaded the notorious Campbell Soup hired guns the

    snatch and grab ‘quick pickers’. :( th_YoungTommy2.gif




    He ran off to join his compatriot :eekth_AYoungTommyKillerTommy.gif (clickable) the Jersey Devil and on to the secret society of the TFNC. Only after many years of combat and approaching his TFNC retiring days did he meet his true nemesis

    Jersey Tomato Doll.:hug th_JerseyTomatoDoll001.jpg :c9 (clickable) She held him close, soothed his rage, and took him places he never dreamed about.




    They are now living in a quiet paradise on a private Island somewhere off the coast of Southwest Florida. Even though the Florida tomatoes can never match the South Jersey tomatoes he will forever have his soul mate Jersey Tomato Doll to live in a world of warmth,peace and love. th_TomatoRetirement001.jpg (clickable)

  10. Thank you Regina (ladylinoleum) :clap


    I woke up this morning and went to the back computer room; I discovered hiding in my desk house plant a weird looking tomato. There was a note nearby and it described a tale of a fellow called young Tommy, he said he was worried as the Campbell Soup hired guns the snatch and grab “quick pickers’ were in the area. They had already tagged some for a trip to the soup factory. He is hoping his alter ego appears with friends from a secret society to help him escape.


    Only Time will tell :devilth_YoungTommy2.gif (clickable)

  11. Looking through your Johari Window I see Shane’s Hug made by Elizabeth and in every stitch and row I see A:




























    I see Shane’s smile as he holds the Hug in his hands and experiences this everlasting hug his good friend Elizabeth has given him.


    He is one fortunate man

  12. What is his patch ? and what do you want to make an afghan ? or a pillow.... are you looking for a graph ? (I could try and graph a picture for you ) unless you need a project and pattern already created.

















  13. I made this last week. It was really fun...I haven't made an angel before. I struggle with thread, so I am pleased with the results.



    Andrea:clap :clap

    The crocheted Angels are some of my favorite. And the thread

    ones, to me, add more of the desired results. Making them

    with thread and enjoying the results is addictive. :(

    But being addicted to the “Angel’s Amongst Us†is a good addiction. ;)

    So does your collection start now? :think

  14. I like that little guy? or girl? love bird? :clap


    I agree of course you need two love birds. :hug They need another to be happy, :P and could there be some little eggs appearing :think with little baby birds far behind ? :eek

  15. I think the rug looks great, and from the pictures it looks like the little one also is quite fond of their rug…….. It also may provide some soft :c9 protection from the hard floors...;) ... lol ……. I like the Band aid covering the boo boo :( or as we use to call it on our kids “look at the knot on that head†…:eek .. Maybe you could wrap it around the baby as a protective barrier…. lol …….. both are adorable. :clap
