  1. Those are really pretty - I am sure your daughter just loves them.
  2. Hey gepgelmik - I'm in Garfield Hts too! There is a nice knit/crochet group that meets at the Nordonia Hills Library. The Stitch Clique meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 6-8pm. Really nice group of ladies and we have a blast. Come join us. PM me or email if you need to know where the library is.
  3. Mary Jo - she is adorable. I just love the little dolls.....still have one you sent me years ago. I have my childhood dolls that one of these days I am going to dig out and give them clothes. So many crafts......so little time.
  4. Very nice! I love filet crochet - just never seem to have time to make anything.
  5. I liked Crochet Today a lot - seems the crochet magazines are disappearing again. I enjoy the UK version of Mollie Makes - it comes with a small craft kit. However, to subscribe it is over $100. The new US Edition was okay, but not as good as the UK version in my opinion. Mollie Makes really should include more crochet as that is what the people who purchased Crochet Today were purchasing it for or at least less advertisement and articles and more craft projects.
  6. A "J" hook would have made the squares bigger and more open. My friend wanted an afghan for warmth and without big holes. So, I went with the "H" as I had used it on this square before and my friend was happy with the size of the squares and the open parts of the squares.
  7. Thanks everyone! I have two more afghans in the works that are getting close to completion. Both are going to be 96 squares each (I think). One uses the same pattern except the centers are all Simply Soft bright colors with the outside being white. It is for an 8 year old girl. The other is just a more solid granny square using up my scraps of yarn and will be for a 9 year old boy. My cousins kids. My aunt (grandmother) will keep them and decide when the kids are old enough to be responsible with them. Hoping to get them done in the next few weeks. Then I will only have two afghans started, not finished. I have yarn for a third afghan of some type. Then I have several more I want to make. I think I like making afghans. Finally the two that are started, not finished and the yarn for the third are afghans for me - I don't have one other than what others have made for me. My friend picked up this afghan last week, has it on the bed and her husband is just in love with it. So warm and it "fits" him - he can cover up with it. He is a tall guy, so the full length helps. My friend so very thoughtfully gave me two gift cards as a thank you. One to Kohl's and one to Outback. Can't wait to eat steak and then see what I can find in Kohl's - thinking a nice top to wear for work when I find a job.
  8. Thank you everyone. Surprisingly, I didn't get sick of the colors - I really enjoy making this particular square, it goes quickly and the pattern is easy to memorize. I just made stacks of them up to a certain point, then weaved in ends, then finished the next part and weaved in those ends. I did, however, dislike sewing the whole thing together - way to big.
  9. Back in April when I was first unemployed, my friend said "this would be a good time to ask you to make me an afghan for our bed". She took advantage of me. Caught me when my mind was befuddled. I was unemployed, depressed, down, probably medicated. She took advantage. Yes, she did. That's my story and I am sticking to it. Just joking, I was happy to make it and really enjoyed the entire project. I started this near the end of May and finished it today. I didn't work on it constantly, but it was my main project. Used 154 snowflake squares from one of my granny square books. It covers a queen size bed and hangs over the sides about 14-16 inches. There are four different color combinations of squares. She wanted it to mostly be the linen color. Made with Vanna's Choice yarn, it took 26 plus a partial skein of Silver Heather, 33 plus a partial skein of Linen, 2 plus a partial skein of taupe Mist and 1 plus a partial of Charcoal Grey. The border I just made up. Used an H hook (no, I am not crazy). The colors match my friends comforter and wallpaper border in her bedroom perfectly.
  10. Hi and welcome from Cleveland.
  11. So adorable. It would take me all year to make those.

    Yep, it was me. I just love Floyd.....I think Flora is a little jealous, but I told her don't worry. Mary Jo will be posting the pic soon I am sure. Thanks again Mary Jo - the surprise really brightened my day.
  15. Thanks for the pattern! I would love to use the same yarn - need to start looking for it - but seems it is out of stock everywhere. Well, I do have a hank of alpaca yarn that would probably work just as well. Soon as I get my swap package done, going to start on this.
