  1. Hi everyone. Sorry I've been mia so long. It's been a rough year so far. Dad had back surgery in Jan. 2 heart attacks at easter. they said 100% blocked in all 3 arteries and didn't give us much hope. They were with God's help able to stent 2 of them though with 7 stents. He needs the 3rd done but were wanting to wait until strength got back up but then his kidneys started messing up. Was up at 2 am yesterday to take him for kidney surgery (2 large stones) but they weren't able to get through to do anything so put in a stent and go back in 2 weeks and then maybe they can do the heart. That and
  2. thanks everyone. here are a couple pics of the bulldog ones
  3. Thanks everyone. They are Heidi Bears patterns on raverly. I've done several (hippo, giraffe, dinosaur, owl and bulldog) with RHSS and an F hook. They come out quite large. You can see pics in my ravelry link in signature and links back to the patterns. I can't use thread either with neuropathy in hands and bad eyes so I used sport weight yarn and an F hook for the 2 smaller ones. The patterns are like 35 pages long. She is very thorough.
  4. I have made 3 of these before but always used RHSS but I had someone ask for a smaller one so I used sport yarn for the first time. The RH ones are about 23" and these came out 18" long. She wanted a solid gray and a peppermint starlight one so this is what I came up with. Love the 'baby' hippo size. Also made a giraffe for another lady. It's RHSS and almost 2 foot tall.

  6. Cannot wait to see this finished. Are they crocheted or sewed together?
  7. Michael's has a big sale on loops and thread and free shipping over $50. Hobby Lobby has a sale on I love that cotton (which I DO!) for $2.66. I really like the I love that yarn as well. It's really soft. Red heart love is sort of a comparison to it. I'm checking out yarn to do one of those crocodile cardigans that was just posted. lol
  8. funny to know it's a problem for several. i have hair down to my bum and don't always remember to pull it back.
  9. all the time and then it's between trying to 'pull' said hair out and it breaks or frogging the stitches to be sure it's all out. lol the joys of long hair.
  10. 23 pink squares done. I'll try to mail out tomorrow but may be Monday. Please send me the address to send to. Thank you. ps, I am not going to say what hook I had to use to get it.
