  1. Thanks for all the comments!
  2. I just tried that on my Samsung Galaxy and it worked! Thanks for teaching this old dog a new trick. LOL
  3. Yes, it's dc, using Tamara Kelly's pattern: https://www.mooglyblog.com/the-solid-granny-square/ I always feel like I've accomplished something when I use up those balls and they aren't just sitting around taking up space.
  4. I used the left overs from the Bernat Pop! yarn plus some other scraps to make this lap throw for our local nursing home. Finally got around to weaving in the ends this morning.
  5. Yes, that's the pattern. Thanks for putting in the link. I'm on my phone--if I can copy and paste, I don't know how. Lol I like the feel of the Pop yarn--definitely cushy.
  6. Thanks, Donna! I finished the second one and rolled a skein into a ball...+1 = +3.
  7. I made one for each of my GD's. I think the flower part is heavy for the rest if the square, but I think they'll love them.
  8. Here's the first one. I'm putting up peas instead of doing the border on the second one this afternoon.
  9. I finished one of the petal throws and used up a skein...+2.
  10. Mary, hope you adjust quickly to the new glasses! Hope you get that crochet time. Brenda, sounds like things are moving right along for the move. The girls spent the night and we all got a good night's sleep. DIL has picked them up already. I was looking forward to a quiet day, but our friend that grows veggies just called and he'll be bringing me two bags of peas--not really two bushels, but it's close--already shelled, thank goodness. So my afternoon is now planned for me. I just have to concentrate on how good they will taste this winter.
  11. Welcome to the group! Nice project--cute doll! I don't do amigurumi, but I hope you'll find the volunteers you need.
  12. We put off the sleepover until tonight. I'll have all three for a while then DIL will pick up the GS. I had a pretty productive afternoon. Washed 3 loads of sheets/towels, remade 2 beds, got the futon mattress that the girls sleep on out and made up (all our beds are tall, so they sleep on it on the floor), paid a bill and balanced the checkbooks, and joined the 4 squares of one of the petal lap throws. I hope to get the other squares joined this afternoon, then I'll just have 4 rounds of dc around each throw. It's another hot one here today.
  13. We're headed back to sunshine and heat indexes over 105 today. Barry's cooler weather was so humid that it wasn't much of a break. We got 2" of rain so that was just a good farmers rain. I think the GDs are coming for a sleepover tonight so I hope I can get a nap in somewhere today. Hope everyone is having a good week!
  14. Thanks! I have a mental picture of your fingers flying over the keyboard!
  15. I like the look and being able to change the colors. I ran into a problem this morning. On two threads--Our House (Part Three) and granny squares work and chat friends 2019 new thread--I don't have a reply to this topic. I tried logging out and back in, but it's still not there. Also the 2019 Stashbusting CAL. Thanks for all your hard work getting things sorted out!
  16. I finally got some crocheting done yesterday. The first two parts of the planet earth cal. Not a great picture, but I did learn how to post the picture from my phone instead of emailing it to myself and then posting from my desktop computer.
  17. It's been a busy, hectic day--thanks for the laughs!
  18. No problem! I just so glad it was a happy surprise that kept you busy!
  19. The two of us and 3 extras Friday night (plus other son's family of 5 for supper). Saturday night we added 4 more spending the night. Plus 6 more during the day--lunch--Saturday (minus son's 5). It was kind of like herding cats trying to figure out who was going to be where at what time/day. LOL
