  1. Cindy, that sounds like a great trip! She'll love the purse, I'm sure. You have reminded me that I haven't made a stocking for Jay, but I don't think it's going to happen this year. Brenda, very funny mental picture of your refrigerator dance. That was a lot of cooking! The new cases are really scary. We didn't invite anyone extra for lunch like we normally would have. DH rounded up help to fry turkeys again this year. Seven Wednesday and then ours Thursday. I'm making dressing, and green pea casserole. I've used a jarred gravy for several years that everyone seems to like and frozen rolls. Bought a frozen chocolate cream pie and a ham. DIL is bringing real cranberry sauce and deviled eggs. That's certainly enough for 4 adults and 4 little kids. I haven't gotten completely rid of the sinus gunk yet but it's a lot better. For some reason the cough is back today after being off the cough meds yesterday. Went to the dentist this morning to have my new crown put on finally. It didn't fit, he had to numb my mouth because it was sensitive with the putting on and off. The old temporary crown was put back on with instructions to not chew on that side. There were no issues with it before, but it's sensitive to cold now. DIL suckered me into baby sitting Wed afternoon. I thought she had an apt but she's swimming with a friend. The day before Thanksgiving?! But she did redeem herself somewhat by arranging for someone we know to come Saturday and cut my hair. Ok, time to get off the computer and figure out what HAS to be done this afternoon. I'm becoming an expert at putting things off. LOL
  2. I always enjoy seeing your table and tree. I'm very envious of your storage space!
  3. I hate trying to pick yarn colors on line because you really can't tell exactly what the color is anyway! Especially when trying to get colors that complement each other.
  4. It doesn't take long looking at different yarns and trying to find a color for your eyes to cross. LOL Have you looked at Herrschners worsted 8 (oz) in pecan or walnut? https://www.herrschners.com/product/herrschners%26%23174-+worsted+8%26%238482-+yarn.do?sortby=ourPicks&refType=&from=fn Or Premier Everyday in caramel: https://www.premieryarns.com/collections/4-medium/products/dneswsp?variant=23926303750 This site says it has Red Heart warm brown in stock where some others say discontinued: https://www.createforless.com/RedHeartClassicYarn190yd.336WarmBrown/pid7256.aspx Red Heart Cafe Latte: https://www.yarnspirations.com/red-heart-super-saver-jumbo-yarn/E302C.html?dwvar_E302C_color=Amethyst#prefn1=fiber&prefv1=Acrylic&prefn2=yarnWeightRefinement&prefv2=%234+Worsted+(Medium)&start=9 Bernat Premium in Cafe au Lait: https://www.yarnspirations.com/bernat-premium-yarn/164158.html?dwvar_164158_color=Aran#prefn1=fiber&prefv1=Acrylic&prefn2=yarnWeightRefinement&prefv2=%234+Worsted+(Medium)&start=16&sz=12 Bernat Super Value has a couple, but the right name wasn't coming up when you click on the color square: https://www.yarnspirations.com/bernat-super-value-yarn/164053.html?dwvar_164053_color=Aqua#prefn1=fiber&prefv1=Acrylic&prefn2=yarnWeightRefinement&prefv2=%234+Worsted+(Medium)&start=48&sz=12
  5. It seems like week after week just keeps on being so busy. DH had his last in home PT today. They just won't approve the in home for very long, but he's using the walker some and his leg muscles are slowly getting stronger. We had dermatologist apts yesterday and his wound clinic one tomorrow. I thought today would be a little catch up and a little relaxing, but DS and family dropped in for a couple of hours this afternoon, so the dishwasher hasn't been unloaded and reloaded and no clothes washed either. Oh, well, it'll still be there tomorrow or Saturday, whenever I get around to it. I ended up with a sinus infection this week, but after two shots and starting on antibiotics, it's getting a little better. Just another thing to sap my energy. Looking forward to a quiet, I hope, weekend. Have to get the DR table cleaned off, but hopefully some down time too. It'll just be us and DS's family for Thanksgiving. The older DS has to work this year. Hope everyone is well and has a good weekend!
  6. My Mary Maxim kits came in-- 8 skeins. -16 I have two packages at the post office and I think at least one is yarn, so I'll be in the negative next week, too. WTD -16 YTD -44
  7. Does anyone have an opinion? The buttons came in. They're not sewed onto the cat head and the head isn't stuffed yet. I think they look a little too big and I'm afraid they may be too heavy.
  8. So I pulled up my big girl pants yesterday afternoon and made the ears, legs, and tail for my GD's cat. Sewed the legs and tail onto the body this morning. Now to decide if I'll try embroidering the eyes again or wait for the buttons I ordered.
  9. Lost my mojo, no time, no energy--take your pick. No crocheting this week. WTD 0

    Newbie!

    The beginning 4 dc is inside the parentheses so it's repeated also. Double repeats in a line are so confusing!!
  11. I just ordered two baby blanket kits from Mary Maxim (on sale). No idea how many skeins that will be. They are pretty slow on shipping so who knows when it'll get here either. But I need to get busy on something that uses up some yarn.
  12. Thanks for the links! I just glanced thru and bookmarked them. Looks like some good ideas.
