  4. Hi! Today is my birthday! I had a wonderful day. My girls wanted to take me out for dinner, so we went to Applebees and went to Sweet Frog for dessert. I guess my diet went out the window today. Haha! I have some squares here to mail out. I've just been a bit of a bum lately. My medication has exacerbated my depression and anxiety. It makes it hard for me to do anything. I think of you all.
  5. I got another puffy! Yay! I was feeling so bummed today and this package brightened my day. Thank you, cshort!
  6. I got a puffy today! Yay! It's from Katy ???? Sorry I'm gone so much. I've been struggling with some health issues and taking care of my girls and home are taking up all my available energy. I do think of you ladies often. I hope all is well. I better get going. Dinner isn't going to cook itself, unfortunately. Haha!
  7. Nothing really exciting during our snow storm. My oldest didn't have school on Fri because of it. ONE inch of snow! Haha! It's so funny to see everyone freak out over snow here. We did end up with 2 inches on Sat and the roads were a bit swishy to drive on. Again, EVERYTHING closed!
  8. Owlvamp--are you only able to check in on here when you are on the network, not wifi? Somehow, my IP address got blocked and I can't access this site from my iPad or my laptop. I can only access from my phone when it's not connected to my wifi at home.
  9. I'm here! I haven't been able to log on since the New Year. It was so strange. My Internet went all weird and then I couldn't access this site AT ALL ever since. I finally figured out a way to contact someone from Crochetville and now Amy Shelton is helping me out. It looks like my IP address was accidently blocked! All this time, all I had to do was log in while on the network, not on my wifi at home. Ugh! So, here I am, eating up my data for you ladies We are all okay. It looks like the baby and I have suddenly become lactose intolerant. I can't even have chocolate! Waaaah! My husband is putting in for a supervisor position. That would mean a $10k a year pay increase, at least. Woot! The weather here is crazy. 60 deg one day, snowing the next. It's currently raining/sleeting/snowing, all at once. Gotta go. I'll look at who is getting squares this month and get hooking. Yay! I can't wait!
  10. Our black hole has swallowed up a watch, mancala bead (lost in the same location as the above watch), electronic key fob, iPod (though it showed back up a year later in a spot we searched FOUR times!), and my favorite tapestry needle (a long metal one) These are things that went missing with no explanation. They're last known location was explicitly known and wasn't messed with. Extensive searching, and even moving from the house, didn't turn them up. I did find my tank top though. It was under my bathroom sink. ??? All I can think is that the baby put it there. Toddlers. I have several graphgan patterns that I want to make, but I've been too nervous to give it a try. I don't know anyone,in person, that is a more advanced crocheter than I, to walk me through it. Pineknott, do you know how to make a graphgan?
  11. Thank you for sharing your project! Nice idea.
  12. That is a truly amazing square! I just read through the directions and my mind is blown.
  13. I posted the patterns for my tiny snowflakes! I'm so bummed. I lost my favorite tank top (yes, its warm enough for that! Ha!). I've looked EVERYWHERE for it, including places that don't make sense. We have a black hole that follows us around. I'm guessing it's claimed another victim.
  14. I posted the patterns! http://www.crochetville.com/community/topic/156072-tiny-snowflakes-2in/
  15. Here are 4 tiny snowflakes I created, NOT made with thread! I used white baby yarn and an E crochet hook. They measure 1.75-2 inches from corner to corner. Starting with the snowflake on the top left and working right: A: 1. Ch 4, sl st to first ch. 2. Ch 1, 6 sc in ring, sl st in 1st sc 3. *Ch 5, sl st in 2nd & 3rd cos from hook, (ch 2, sl st in 2nd & 3rd chs from hook) x2, sl st in 2nd ch of ch 5, sl st in next sc* x6. End off. B: 1. Ch 4, sl st to 1st ch. 2. *Ch 5, sl st in ch 4 ring* x6 3. sl st in 1st ch 5 space, *ch 4, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, ch 2, sl st in next ch 5 sp* x6. End off. C: 1. Ch 4, sl st to 1st ch. 2.

I hope you enjoy these cute little flakes! Let me know if I made any mistakes or if anything isn't clear enough.
  16. Miss Katy, you are already on top of things. I'm already on first page, under April. I'll pm you my addy though. I haven't done that yet. Dh's eye is MUCH better. Still a teensy bit blurry, and it gets tired a little easy, but he's not in world's of pain anymore. Baby and I are feeling better too.
  17. I have no idea why it works, but unplugging and then plugging back in works! I did that this morning with our Apple TV. My girls thought I was crazy, but I was like "trust me!". And it worked. Dh's eye is getting better. He's no longer in pain, but his vision is still blurry. As for me, I slept most of the day. I feel a little better right now, but I'll see how I feel in the morning. The baby was in slightly better spirits today. The weather HAS been crazy! My mom had a tornado touch down near her (IL). Some families lost everything. So sad. And there was a weird flash of light there that everyone is taking about (not related to the tornado). One of our friends in the area says it's aliens. Lol!
  18. The baby and I aren't feeling well today. Blah. And it's dh's birthday today. I wanted to take his car out to be detailed, as a gift, but I haven't been able to peel myself off the couch.
  19. AWESOME!! What about Easter? Giant egg? Pot of gold for St. Paddy's? For valentine's day, you can do a conversation heart fascinator hat.
  20. I edited the OP to include the measurements. Thank you for the compliments! I'll try to remember to post the patterns tomorrow. I'd do it now, but I'm ready for bed. Long day!
  21. Well, today was a bust. We spent all morning and afternoon in the ER. Last night, the baby smacked dh on the eye real good. Hurt his cornea. We thought he'd be better this morning, but it was waaaay worse. Urgent care said they couldn't help him and referred us to the ER. He has a corneal abrasion with swelling. They gave him some antibiotic ointment and some strong pain killers. Poor guy is in a lot of pain and can't see out of his eye. On a brighter note, my bff got me this for Christmas.....a yarn winder! Yay! No more hand cramps from winding yarn into balls.
  22. What yummy gingerbread! And gluten free, too. Yay!
  23. So festive! And.... cozy! I don't own any teapots, but if I did, I'd totally do something like that.
