HELLO EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm back!!!! We just got our internet back!!!! I've missed you guys soooooooooooooooooo much! :hug We were only without electricity for about 24 hrs, but the cable/tv/internet has been out the rest of the time! AGH!!!! I've made 2 scarves, a pair of fingerless gloves for DH some lip balm holder key chain things and a butterfly toy! Seems like I should have done a lot more, but my hands hurt so much! :lol I actually got out of the house today when I went to a dr's appt and got to see the destruction first hand. OMG! There are trees and wires down everywhere. A lot of people are still without power too. How did every one else here make out? I still can't believe that we have all this snow? 2 feet of snow in October is just NOT RIGHT! They have rescheduled Trick or Treat until this coming weekend for the kids. I sure hope the weather is good! They have a lot of cleaning up to do to make it safe for them to go around to the neighborhoods. Ok, time to try and catch up on all that I've missed! I'll be back! :hug

 

OH MY GOSH! :hug:hug You were SO missed! Glad to hear you are okay and BACK!!

Hi everyone! Looks like things are finally winding down at work and at home, so will be able to be online more. Have some photos of things I made that I need to get off the camera, totes, totes, totes!!! Amazing when you don't have enough time on the net for personal stuff what you can accomplish :lol

 

Hugs and prayers to all that need them and miss you all a LOT!!! Glad to be back among friends again.

Finally finished another SBT last night. Hopefully a pic can be uploaded this weekend. It was done in Vanna's Choice - colors of Olive and Seafoam. Sue helped me pick out the colors on our last shopping trip. She did a fantastic job once again!!

Can't wait to see it!!!

Designed a new market tote last night. You can see it in this month's TLC thread. Going to make it again (writing it down this time :lol ) and make adjustments. :)

 

:turtle:vheart

It's great!!!!

:) I'm so happy to hear from you. I was really worried!!!! :hug We had the storm too and there are still some of my friends at work who have no power-NW part of the state- and should be back hopefully by tomorrow!!! I was lucky- didn't lose power and no trees down--but there were lots of places that lost power, lots of trees down and many towns have also re-scheduled Halloween trick or treating. It just doesn't seem right to have all the snow in Oct!!! Again, I'm so glad you are ok!!!!

Joanne - Hope you have a great day today!!

In the course of making christmas blankets and totes, I am also crocheting my wedding veil. I dont have much done, but Im committed to making my own. I need to get a pic up later today of what I do have done.

 

Im making it with Aunt Lydias size 10 in white. Not sure what size hok, but its on the slightly bigger end of the itsy bitsy hooks, LOL Right now its just a 6 point round ripple, but every 14 rows im going to add a new point in the middle of each "side" Im also going to make some small flowers to add to it , thinking I might make them in a purple and white combo since my bridesmaids and everyone will be in a deep purple.

But the wedding is in mid 2013 or 2014, the date is not set in stone yet, waiting on my fiancee to get a more solid job, which may be really soon. He has a once in a lifetime job offer to go work for the railroad starting at 22$ an hour. that sure beats the 8.05 hes making now.

 

Please keep fingers crossed , I know I am :)

It's almost time to go home!!!!! I'm so tired and so ready to go. It's been a very lllllloooonnngggg day.

 

Will have the grandsons tonight. Not sure what we will do, maybe watch a movie. Hopefully the oldest one is not grounded from games or tv. Will take my friend to Walmart to shop tomorrow, DH will keep the boys while I do that. Then we'll be watching football (OU and OSU for sure).

 

Immafreek--hope your fiancee gets the job. Looking forward to seeing the veil you're going to do.

 

Hope all of you have a great weekend! Stay warm and stay safe. Hugs to all of you.

Howdy Everyone! Hope you've all been having a nice Friday! I've been hanging out on Pogo trying to catch up on my badges! :lol I've also been working on some fingerless gloves that I promised to test for bobwilson123 before the power went out, but didn't get the pattern until it last night! That's it for my day. No snow! Hurray! A cold front coming thru, but we can deal with that! Have a great evening! :hug

Good Morning all, thanks ladies for the positive comments on the round ripple. It's nice to know that the color way works so well. :)

 

Moving right along on the granny go round tote, changed the color though. Didn't like the peaches and creme "pagentry" for this pattern. color way was to busy and the pattern go lost, so I switched it to bernat handicrafter cotton velvet orchid. Just started round 22, hope to have it finished today. back to stitching, I'll check back in later
