    Hi peeps... Taking DH to urgent care this AM....he has to be checked out since the icky stuff is still draining into his throat and there isn't much let up. Horribly humid this morning...so glad my hair is short again. Oh, my! they look like statues! Absolutely adorable....good thing they have each other and the kids to help get rid of the kitten crazies!! That's rough about baseball. There have been stretches of time where the yankees weren't good at all and the stadium would be half empty! There's so much to deal with with medicare etc....I feel for you, really I do! Sounds like you're doing great with retirement! Better than I would....I fritter time away too easily... It sounds like you had a great send off too..... Have to dash - want to open the doors at urgent care... EDIT....DH has a sinus infection. If he hd listened to me two days ago he would have had much nicer weekend. Men!
  2. Hi ladies!!! Are your hooks moving? Mine are....made a small preemie blanket and thought of a friend from here, Linda, who passed away a few years ago - it was just a granny square, which she used to make for a similar cause. Will be making more - NICU is getting more than their share of tiny babies. Our church had triplets baptized a couple of weeks ago, so the stack of blankets I had on hand were immediately put to use....have to start working on more. Any new projects lately or has the heat sapped away the crochet mojo??

    oh, wow....tg he is ok! I've seen so many pictures on the news - it's terrifying! I remember walking past the lives near the Arch in St. Louis - I cannot imagine such flooding.....

    Oh, boy....bad! We lived north of St. Louis in the early 70's and the first year we were there the Mississippi flooded badly, completely wiping out he train tracks as well as the highway that ran alongside and people had to find alternate ways to get to work. And that was WITHOUT tornadoes! I can't imagine living through one.....

    Tote bag is done! Took inspiration from my friend's love of ladybugs for the fabric lining and found a pattern for a lady bug on a leaf ....she'll be floored! What looks like raspberry is really rose....Caron pounder

    Cindy, you're so right to listen to your body and retire....you'll miss some aspects, but now you'll have more craft time!! Yikes... tornadoes! I hope everyone is ok! Nearby Staten island NY had a warning two nights ago and a "minor" one did touch down.
  8. A dear friend in Florida has used a motorized scooter to get around for about 25 years and has recently had a very major life change.. I've made totes for her to hang on her scooter so she can put her nook in there, etc. Second one is wearing out, she said,so I made another...using her love of flowers and ladybugs for inspiration...happened to have ladybird fabric on hand for the lining. One color is not raspberry but a Caron pounder in rose.

    Hi peeps! Very, very pretty I'm making a new tote bag for a friend who uses a battery operated scooter...she wears out the bags, which she hangs on the handles. This will be bag number 3😀

    Hi peeps! Sunshine again today😎 Adorable! They are super cute😍
  11. Thanks ladies!! I gave it to my friend's 23 yo DD yesterday and she loved it - my friend checked on her daughter during the day and found her sleeping on top of her quilt all wrapped up in the ghan💞

    I can't tell you how much my crochet skills have multiplied since I joined this forum - I can't imagine where I'd be without this wonderful group! And I've been encouraged to try my hand at knitting, too, which I NEVER thought I would even attempt.

    Thanks!! Yes, a large granny square until I figured it was wide enough when worked the granny square stitch at each end and one round on each long side. I did - as always - turn after every row. I forget which designer mentioned doing that so you don't get a slant on the square.

    Finished blanket. Her initial is on both sides...no right or wrong side to this. Took a pic in daylight (what is that bright or in the sky??) .... true colors are pretty.
