Judi~He sounds like a well trained *clears throat* I mean a good man. :devil

 

I wish I could've been a fly on your wall during those few months. :lol :lol

...After nearly 40 years of marriage he's better be well trained by now!:lol:D ...I guess they mellow when they get older:lol :lol

You DON'T want to know all that he had to do for me!:2eek

...all I can say is TG it was my LEFT wrist:rofl :laughroll:rofl

 

(and I "mis-wrote"...and me a writer:P ...the cast was on for "only" 3 weeks, a few months ago, then it was weeks longer before it quit aching when I used it too much. I was VERY depressed, not being able to crochet)

Good Morning Ladies!

 

I thought I could use up baby yarn stash for that ghan & it's a no go because I don't have the colors for it. I will go through my other stashes. :blush We shall see.......

 

Have a good one!

Good morning ladies :flower

 

Well, Dallas was a blast! I feel like I've been run over by a bus but I had a great time :lol We got home about noon yesterday and I've pretty much been asleep since then except for brief periods of tryingto stay awake which, obviously, failed :D Think almost 24 hours sleep (and tons of Ben-Gay) have done some good though :yes Might be able to get one block together today :yay

 

Mary - Oh thank you, thank you, thank you! :nworthy You don't need to do another thing beyond the wonderful job you've already done :manyheart

Okay, I've learned that I need to make squares to keep me happy ;) so I just got back from Hobby Lobby! I'm going to do one of Cara's Ohio Star patterns :think in Windsor Blue, Claret, and either Aran or Soft White. The Aran looks a little more antique to me; we'll see.

 

Cara ~ Thank you for using my picture...I told Zoe that it was her debut on the Web. :lol

Hi All,

Just thought I'd jump in here quick -- not much time to answer separately .. We 've had a rough couple of days here . My aunt passed away ( she was 94 ) ,so I had to get ahold of some of the family that lives on THIS side of the country-- she lived in California with her kids, grandkids, etc ,so that is the other half of our family, many of whom I have never met .

Then I had Cam the last 2 days and the poor little dude got a really bad case of stomach flu last night. He ended up in Children's hospital today, but thankfully is back home and resting now, so hopefully the worst is over .

Anyhow, I have been trying to grind out a few squares here and there .

I'm gonna get IMPEACHED as leader due to lack of participation .:(

I'm trying, gang, it's just been slow going the last few weeks .

That saying of When it rains it pours, is pretty doggone true .

Congrats to Mary on finishing your afghan. You guys are all so talented !

And most of you who have finished are already starting on a second one .

 

You ALL get gold stars this week . :sstar:mdust:sstar:mdust:sstar:mdust:sstar:mdust:sstar

 

I get to sit in the corner with my gum on my nose .

Awww Julie, you poor thing :( You've had a rough time...here's a :ghug And you're not getting out of being leader that easy! :lol

 

Take your time, do what needs to be done and we'll still be here all suffering from the Little Square Bug :) Oh wait, that's probably my fault, but I could be blamed for worse things, I'm sure :devil

Good afternoon! DH and I have been busy around here today and wanted to check in.:) It sure is quiet!

 

Julie ~ If you would put me down for the Ohio Star Variant in Claret, Windsor Blue, and Aran. :hook Thank you.

 

I made a few squares last night (with an H hook instead of G - much easier on my right hand!) and really like the colors together. Baby Blocks was the fifth baby ghan I've made since last fall and now it's time for red, white, and blue!

 

Have a great Sunday. :manyheart

Hi Gang

Thanks for the well wishes . Cam is doing better . I got to spend a couple hours with him today. I bought him some Transformers-- Tab, I'm sure you know what they are with all those boys. I had no clue how to work them little things, but between me and Cam, we got them figured out . I told him he had some color in his face today, and he started wiping his face off. He must've thought I meant he had COLORED on his face with markers or crayons .

Anyhow, you sometimes take advantage of good health til someone in your family doesn't have it, then you remember to be a little more thankful of it after that .

Mary- I'll go add you to the list for your next quilt. your colors do sound pretty .

 

I'm hoping this week is a little quieter ,then I will have something to show for Photo Friday . :)
