  1. What a fun tote. We see mostly wasps which are not pretty at all, and my long history of being allergic to bees doesn't like them at all. But I love your tote. Do you ever get tired of making them?
  2. Simply gorgeous! I never get tired of seeing your tables. They represent your beautiful spirit.
  3. Don't forget to consider the possibility of joining all different sizes. It adds even more pizzaz.
  4. I would love to be entered! Satin is such a good yarn choice for soft charity hats and blankets. Thanks for offering it.
  5. Enter me please! I'm diabetic and can't have chocolate, but this bunny is perfectly legal for me. And so cute.
  6. I know I've been AWOL for a long time, but here is a part of my spring hat collection for charity.
  7. You may not know this, but today is Halloween in New Jersey. It was postponed to Saturday and then to today. There are some very adorable goblins knocking at my door.
  8. Woo Hoo! We just got our power back after three days. I am soo cold and looking forward to heat and light tonight. All is well.
  9. I am not far from Joanne or Judy, and we are as prepared as we can be. Apples and granola bars, anyone? Loss of power is my biggest concern, but there is not much we can do about that. My candles and nook and kindle are keeping my yarn company. Will check in when I can.
  10. Thanks for all the birthday wishes! Here are a couple of things I've been working on. One is a kids log cabin for Project Linus. The other is my mystery ghan in progress. It is the perfect colors to match my living room.
  11. Here is my "too nice" ghan all done. It will be donated as planned. I just loved working on this one.
  12. Thanks for all the insightful comments. It's nice to know that people still care about the quality of their work. It won't surprise you that this attitude is pretty much what I expected from all of you wonderful housemates.You're the best!
  13. Here is some food for thought this morning. If you are making something for charity, what quality of work is acceptable? I am working on a lapghan for a local charity. When I brought it with me to my seniors' craft group, the overwhelming majority opinion was that it was too nice to give away. I took it as a nice compliment on my work. But the overall attitude was that if you are giving something away, it shouldn't be too nice since it might get stolen, it won't be appreciated or taken care of, etc. The prevailing attitude was that "just anything" was fine to give since it was more than the person had before. That bothers me. My thinking is that if a person is already ill or otherwise in need of comfort, they deserve my very best. A simple lapghan can cheer them up, give comfort to the family that someone cares about their loved one, and brighten the day of the dedicated people who are caring for them. Maybe I have a selfish motive, too. Sometimes I just make things for the sheer pleasure of making them and giving them away is an added benefit for me. What do you think?
  14. Woo Hoo! Hobby Lobby just opened a store half an hour from my house. I just got back from checking it out. Did I buy anything? What a silly question!
  15. I wanted to try the crocodile stitch, so here is what I made to brighten my day. It is a very thick, cushy Kindle cover. This was such fun to make.
