  1. Hi Ladies, I decided to drop in and say "Hi." I have been wondering what this thread was about. I have seen it several times. The weather was cloudy today and has been all last week. I am currently working on a friendship ghan. I have many squares and right now a few plans to assemble the squares as soon as I have enough. I have an adorable dog who lives with me. I named him Rusty. He is my furbaby. I hope everybody had a nice day.
  2. Kimgoodie, I think that I listed your in the post where I listed all the squares that I have received so far. I am going back in the thread to this post to see if I did list them. I'll let you know here. Update: Kimgoodie, I found the post where I listed squares and yours was not listed as you know (I didn't). I don't have your squares. I thought I did, but that was an old empty envelope I remembered. Sorry. Jeannie
  3. Hi ladies, Rusty and I are fine here. It is cloudy here today. The weather forecast this morning said that we may get rain today. I hope that we do. Latest on chair--I think that I posted that I found a perfect recliner for me when I went shopping online last night. I decided today to call the store to get the price of the recliner. The lady said that she had one and the chair could be delivered to me. (I'm just in the next town.) I asked the price and she told me. I then decided to call my brother and tell him. I did and David was surprised that E. J. and Kertrina didn't come on Satur
  4. Katie, I would appreciate it if you could send me links for the joining methods. Thanks for offering. I have decided to sort my squares by sizes. I have several sizes so this will work better than what I had decided to do. I am going to do a shades of afghan at some point. I thought that I might make one for Mama. Her favorite color is pink, so it would be a shades of pink one. Re the problem with the chair--it is finally all settled as far as I'm concerned. Kertrina and E. J. didn't come Saturday to help me. They were supposed to come and work on the footrest of the loveseat so that
  5. Hi ladies! I have been reading the posts and I found two who answered my question. I have noticed that I have squares in different sizes, which is all right. It is what I asked for and I wouldn't change a thing. However, this has given me an idea or two for an afghan. I am going to sort the squares by size and see how many I have of each size. I will then make an afghan using all one size. Another idea that came to me when I saw the smaller squares is to maybe make an afghan dog-size for Rusty. I may do this and I may not. I just thought that one would be cute--he would have one and I wo
  6. Hi everybody, I would like to ask all of you something that I have been wondering about--what do you do with all the squares that you receive? I know that some of you make them into afghans, but how do you start (how do you know when to start and what size do you make the afghans)? Do you use a neutral color to join or do you try to match the colors of the squares that you join? I know that these are lots of questions, but this is what I have been wondering about. Thanks for helping in advance. Jeannie
  7. Hi Katie, Thanks for your kind words. It seems that Kertrina did not come like she told my brother she was going to. I was sitting in a brown velour recliner, and when I got up this afternoon, the footrest suddenly unlatched and I tried to close it, but it would not close. I sat on the loveseat for awhile and even put the footrest out. It went out correctly, but when I closed up the footrest, it would not lock and this means that it comes out when I start to get up, so I had to sit there until the EMTs came and they finally did, but it was some time before they came and I had decided that t
  8. Good morning everybody. The chair situation still not taken care off, but maybe getting there. Here is an update. The footrest won't stay locked when it is closed and I can't get the footrest to stay locked when I close it. I have told Kertrina this and she got Pete (her former husband) to come by and see if he could help. He did come by and he was able to close the footrest on one side and get the other footrest on the other side to come out. Then, he was able to close both footrests and they both stayed locked, so I showed him that I could not get the footrest on the right locked and he
  9. bgs, you were right on the count of your squares. I had miscounted those. You are also right on the colors. I loved these very much. I love all the squares that I received this month. Jeannie
  10. Hi everybody, Now at last what you've all been waiting for--puffy news! I have gone through a lot of the mail (ok, some of it) and I opened the puffies! I love them! Thanks to bgs, Katie, sopo, and C. Short for the lovely squares. bgs, thank you for the nice surprise in the puffy you sent! I love the little towel with the crocheted top. I have needed one of those for a long time. Thanks for crocheting the towel topper and sending it and the towel along with your squares. As it happens, I live in a rural area and my Daddy grew up on a farm, so I like the choice of the towel very much. Would or
  11. Hi everybody, I am still working on getting something settled re a place to sit. Re puffies--I do have an interesting puffy from bgs and there are three more puffies. I will post the names tomorrow morning. Thanks to all who pledged squares. I will post a proper thank you to all who sent puffies tomorrow. Thanks for choosing me as your queen. Sorry things went bad here last week and got me offtrack. Hope everyone is well. Katie, it sounds like you will be back to your old self soon. Continue as you are going. Rusty says "yip, yip" (hello in minidachshund). Jeannie
  12. Katie, kimgoodie, and bgs, I could have used that manual. Unfortunately I did not have a clue who made the lift chair. Kertrina did not tell me. Thanks for reminding me about the owner's manuals anyway. That's good to remember. Katie, the lift chair is gone. They replace it with a loveseat. Only problem with that is I can't get up from that without help. bgs, Thanks for the suggestion and the kind words. I am a member of a church, but unfortunately they do not contact me. I do know some Christian people though. Thanks for the kind words everybody. Still working on the pr
  13. Well, I am back again. I had hoped to have a surprise for you ladies, but I am the one who got surprised. Now to get you up to date. The chair I posted about is gone. Kertrina (lady who cleans my house and runs errands for me) finally came yesterday afternoon to see what happened. She looked at the chair and tried the hand help control and of couse it did not work. She diagnosed it as "the motor is dead." I don't know, but something didn't work and neither did the chair. Anyway, she said that she'd look for another chair. She said that she had a friend who had a nice recliner and this fr
  14. Hi everybody, I have not been able to leave the office much . I will say that I have 4 puffies and as soon as I get something settled about the chair (or a chair), I will leave here and go into another room. The situation here is: the lift chair is out. That was the only chair that I can sit in. There is another chair, but I think that it is too low for me if I remember correctly, and I might not be able to get out of it. I am currently sitting in the office chair that I bought from Office Depot back in 99. I have been working on unloading the yarn from the extra chair in the living room
