  1. So glad to hear that! Hubby is on the mend, I actually slept, but my 17yo text me to say he feels "it" coming on... Beautiful day here in Southeastern VA, some around the office are complaining it's hot but it feels just right to me. Love reading & catching up on everyone's posts around here.
  2. Hi Everyone <---that's me, only I'm at work & have managed to make it until now which is lunch time...hoping for smooth sailing to 5pm so I can go home & rest. Attempted to sleep on the couch last night because the hubbo is sick & had crashed in the center of the bed. I didn't really want his cooties anyways. I never did actually sleep thanks to a horrible headache that found its way down my neck & shoulders. I thought about taking some left over pain meds from the dentist but was afraid I'd oversleep. Pssh. I wish! I was awake when the alarm went off & since I didn't s
  3. Adorable! That pattern is much cuter than the plain one I made last week. I still like it alot (the one I made) but that added texture on yours is just the right touch for a mermaid!

    Oh that is too cute, love it!!
  5. Thank you all for the warm welcome:hug! I definitely need to take the advice of jotting down names so I can keep track as I learn who everyone is. Have a great day all of ya!
  6. Cindy - I have a wonderful Singer which works wonderfully for me, just wish it monogrammed/embroidered. I did learn that after buying a new machine, a used (pre-loved) machine works just as well, sometimes better. Linda - yay, another sewer!! So nice to "meet" all of you & have things in common!
  7. FOUR...AND a serger!!! I'm green with envy:h5
  8. Good Morning Ladies ~ Hoping you’ll entertain a newbie! Well, I’m not exactly a newbie…I’ve been a member since 2006, just been MIA these last few months - actually pretty much since the Winter Scarf Swap this past season. I learned to sew last year so a lot of my crochet time was turned into sewing-obsession time!! But crochet is just one of those loves that you can never really let go of & I’ve been playing with my yarn a little more these days. I’m a married mom of 3 – my oldest son is grown, my middle is about to graduate high school, & my youngest will be 12 this weekend. I w
  9. I love a granny-ghan & a star shape is even better! Great job!
  10. Another fabulous project Beth! And I feel lucky to have seen it IRL and know just how cuddly it really is. Jedi Mom Shawl
  11. I enjoy Crochet Today & Inside Crochet (a UK magazine that is kind of pricey so I buy them when I can at my local B&N).
  12. Last winter I made my DS#2's (meaning my 2nd son, not my 2nd favorite, lol!) girlfriend this hat made from CSS. She picked it out of my stash and I was worried for the same reasons you mentioned- but wore the hat a few times a week all the way thru spring & it stayed nice. After that it became my fave yarn to use for beanies. EDIT TO ADD PATTERN CREDIT!! I'm so sorry for not including this originally!! This hat pattern is called Divine Hat by Sarah Arnold and can be found for free on Ravelry and on her webpage here
