  1. Just dropping on to see the pretty finishes. Very nice Judy and Diana. I’m still plugging away on that log cabin Afghan. I’m sewing the ends in as I go now. It doesn’t seem quite as bad as when I faced a whole pile of squares. Quite always to go still.
  2. Hi everyone. Definitely winter here. It’s been really cold, and it snows a little pretty much every day. We saw a little sunshine yesterday and today though. Covid is on the rampage here as well. We mostly avoid going out unless we have to, although I have been grocery shopping. We probably wouldn’t run out of groceries for at least 3 months. I keep my pantry and freezer full, but I never buy more than I can store in those two places. Dh has a bit of a prepper/doomsday mentality and he just feels better if I keep things well stocked. Plus, since I just bought 25 pounds of brea
  3. Judy, love the Christening blankets! I need to finish all my unfinished blankets. A couple of years ago I gave away 4 blankets for Christmas gifts. I need to do that again. We certainly don’t need any more blankets. My knee is doing much better. I’ve been walking a couple of miles a day when the weather permits. Right now it’s snowing like crazy. We’re supposed to get 6-8 inches by morning. I must say snow isn’t nearly as bad as it was before I retired! Now I have no more excuses for not getting back to work on all those UFOs. We are mostly sticking around the house. Cov
  4. Wow Judy. You’ve been busy. Nice projects. I have my wrist under control, but now my knee is causing problems. At least I can use both hands to craft though. I haven’t finished a thing to show off. I have lots of WIPs though!
  5. Well, still not much time for crocheting.🙄. I am managing to fit a little in here and there. My brother in law (the one with leukemia), passed away three weeks ago. It’s been a lot of work settling his affairs and it’s far from finished. And now there’s leaves to rake, and all that cleaning I ignored when my wrist was giving me problems to catch up on. hop you are all doing well.
  6. I ended up having surgery. It’s much improved. Still weaker than the right wrist and still hurts a bit if I use it too much or move it wrong, but I can pretty much do whatever I want.
  7. Hi, just checking in. I had surgery on my wrist and the pain is so much better. My wrist is pretty weak and gets tired and achy really easily, but it’s a little better every day. I haven’t tried crocheting yet, but I’m sure that I can. Judy, such lovely projects! You’ve been busy. we are going to the Smokies for a week, leaving tomorrow. Hope to be here more regularly when we get home!
  8. Hi Christi, good to see you again! That’s going to be a pretty afghan. I'm still not crocheting. My wrist seems to have ups and Downs, but it’s about as bad as it’s ever been at the moment. Thankfully, I finally get to see a hand surgeon on Wednesday. I sure hope they have something to offer. It’s been over eight weeks and it’s getting old! hope you are all doing well.
  9. I have an anti vax friend as well…except she and her hubby got the vaccine back in the early spring. She has done a total about face since then. Cases are up a bit here, but not as much as in a lot of other areas and hospitalizations aren’t out of control. (Yet). The public schools around here are all mandating masks and that has a lot of parents up in arms. Since I don’t have kids in school, I haven’t really considered how I would feel about that. On Monday we went to a huge flea market. I bought an adult coloring book on impulse there. I figured it would be something to do on
  10. I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA again. I’m on week 7 of tendonitis in my left wrist. I can barely do anything with that hand without severe pain. I finally have an appointment with a hand surgeon next week. Hopefully he will have some ideas. Ice, pain meds and special exercises haven’t helped. So, no crocheting here. I tried though. I also tried knitting, embroidering and sewing. Sewing by machine is fine, but pinning stuff together is painful. However, I am able to dust, vacuum, do laundry. wash floors, pull weeds, etc. I guess it’s better than doing nothing!😜 My bil is still hanging on
  11. Hi ladies sorry to be MIA again. Just haven’t felt much like crocheting. Probably because I made myself a rule that I have to finish a project before starting a new one. It’s been hot and humid here too, which hasn’t helped. I agree that it’s nice to be able to eat in a restaurant and visit with friends. In fact we are having friends over for dinner on Saturday. My BIL, the one with leukemia is not doing well. There is one more treatment the Dr. said she could try if his insurance will cover it. He looks awful, he’s lost a ton of weight and he’s very juandiced. He sa
  12. Brenda, when I was working it always amazed me how many people seemed to develop serious health conditions within the first few years after retiring.
