  1. I received my package from heart (Sarah!) and I absolutely love it! It truly matches my kitchen curtains with cherries on them. There was also my new favorite Hershey chocolate drops included (which I will not be sharing with the kiddo's or hubbo)... The uploader is not loving my pic file - so as soon as I get that straightened out I will post again!!!
  2. Awww! Yours will be ready soon too - just some finishing touches this weekend. Sorry for not checking in sooner, can't wait to catch up on what I have missed. My middle son is graduating high school soon so have been busy with that. The youngest (not to be forgotten!) has a graduation of sorts from elementary school to...middle school. GASP! I am not ready for all that!!!
  3. We had a Ben Franklin for quite awhile...then it went bankrupt & closed, re-opened less than a year later. Went in there a few weeks ago & they asked if I had an AC Moore card - turns out they are now AC Moore! I never even paid attention to the sign out front. The good news is, we have one closer than Virginia Beach now, the bad news is I'm sure when the stock of fabric runs out they won't be carrying it anymore. Luckily they have a decent yarn selection. And we do have Joann's & Michael's & a few really well stocked LYS's.
  4. LOL - so many idea's I had to make a list last night to get myself focused. Starting crocheting something pretty dang cute & can't wait to get home to work on it some more this evening. A trip to the yarn shop is in order....oh darn, hate it when that happens. LOL, ok I know no one here would believe that for a second!!
  5. 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.
  6. I hope you have a wonderful day!!! :bday:bday:bday:bday:bday:bday:bday:bday:bday:bday
  7. 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 sleep it feels more like an extention of Monday...just one looooong Monday...instead of Tuesday. The headache is mostly gone now...I may go for a little walk towards the end of my lunch hour & get fresh air. Linda ~ sounds like you & I had similar nights, I'm sorry!! Hope you are feeling better & the downtime on the heating pad last night helped. Valerie ~ whoot, have a ball working on the Bama-ghan! Sounds like a very cool grad present. Judy - Booo-hisss to the rain & thunder!! I hope the weather clears up to something more enjoyable, but please please don't send that humidity down my way...it'll be here soon enough. Ugh. LEAST favorite thing about life in Virginia. Julie ~ have fun tasting, err, shopping for cakes!! Tabitha ~ oh girl, deja'vu. My best friend (like a sister & my kids call her their Aunt) had gastric bypass about 7 years ago to drop weight for invitro, she lost 150 pounds and her mind for about 4 solid years. The invitro didn't take, she divorced her wonderful husband & followed the new attention from other men in bars for quite awhile. She never even came to wish me goodbye when I moved across country because she had a date with a guy 10 years younger. I am happy to say that she is back to "normal" (whatever that really is), she's even been to visit me here in VA, has since left CA and settled in Oklahoma with a wonderful man & expecting her first baby in July. All of that to say - losing alot of weight can really affect peoples psyche & I'm sorry to see it happening in your family. It can be destructive. And a warm hello & happy day to everyone else!
  8. 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!!
  10. I think I have googled & oogled so many kitchen crocheted goodies that I am going to have to start a list!
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. FOUR...AND a serger!!! I'm green with envy:h5
  14. 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 work full time in Admin for a seafood company – love my job but now that Lent is over & summer hasn’t quite begun the seafood industry is sloooow. Kinda nice to have time to taske breaks & google patterns or crochet on my lunch hour. I live on the coast in VA – the weather has been pretty nice but a cold rain hit yesterday & that suited my mood just fine. I had a tooth pulled Friday & it was kind of a big deal for me since my one true fear is the dentist so I spent the last few days on the couch. The rain made it feel cozy. I’ve got more work to be done but now that I’ve found a nice doctor I’m a little less freaked out. Anyways, I’ve poked around the board here some & you all seem like a fun group! Couldn’t help but want to say hello…so...Hello!
