I got the stitches out of my finger yesterday and I can crochet again! The up side of the injury is that DH has hired someone to replace the secretary that I've been filling in for since the first of March. I've been helping train her this last week, but will be easing myself out.

 

Hope everyone has a good week!

Congrats on getting your stitches out and being able to crochet again!

Oh girls..she's got it bad :lol:lol

 

I lost count around 35-40. They are still my go-to project for a quick gift or something to take with in a hurry to work on

oh ya she does have it bad lol

 

Haha, yes I am definitely starting an addiction. I really should be starting a scarf for my brothers birthday, but instead I continue to make sbt.

 

Oh and here is a picture of my first SBT

Hope everyone is doing well and I hope you guys don't mind me jumping in here.

very nice tote!

hi everyone.

I have been lurking and not posting a lot. Its been stressful at work. thankfully the new rns are almost off orientation. my manager was in last night and I was telling him about a stroke conference that is in hawaii in feb. joking that he should send me. ummm im not counting on it but he says there is money for that stuff:eek and then......he decided that he would like me to lead a nursing case study,:scared me? really? I dont even know where to begin on that but have started looking at some that have been posted online and am scared to death about the enormous amount of work involved. I am leaving to go see kendra in 3 weeks and can't wait.

wow what an opportunity I am sure you will be great

Thanks guys :)

 

Hi everyone!

I have been MIA so just checking in... the weather has been terrible rain rain and more rain and who wants to go out in that ick.

Just dropping by to say that I hope that everyone is having a good day. I have decided that on Saturday I will definitely start the scarf I need to make. I think once I get it actually started I will be fine, but it's so hard to do something other than a sbt right now :2blush

 

Melanie - I wish that it was rainy right about now, I like in Phoenix so I get to deal with extreme heat. Although today it is only 102 degrees.

Wow 102 degrees!!!! Too hot for me!!!! It was actually quite lovely outside today- but I only got to spend time at lunch time since I was cooped up in meetings all day long! Whew what a week--and still one more day to go!!!

 

 

Going to finish the scarf tonight and root for Sherry's OKC Thunder!!!!!

Here he is!! She took him to the store to get his mommy a Thunder shirt and he found the hat and wouldn't take it off--so she got to buy it too!

Good morning~

Sherry- Sorry about the Thunder loss- and hopefully they bounce back and win on Sunday!! Your GS looks adorable!

 

Mary- I've only made the SBT with the pattern handle---what were you thinking of doing?

 

Hope everyone has a good Friday--I, for one am sooooo glad that it IS Friday!!!

hi everyone!

 

well i think i have come up with something that will help me feel better, have purpose and get my groove back.

 

since I am in an illegal suite and will have to move anyway I am looking for a suite in my budget and area that will let me rescue or adopt a little dog(pet therapy for me). the little guy will give me a walking buddy, help me get out and about, play comfort and cuddle what more could anyone ask for. I have grown up with all sorts of pets, chickens, billy goats, parrots, cats , dogs, hamsters, horses...and the list goes on:D

 

of course finding a home that will let me have little buddy will be just as challenging as finding one i can afford but anything is possible right?

 

And just think of all the fun things I can crochet for him:c9:c9:c9

I now have direction and purpose:D:D:D

Hi everyone! It's been a busy few days here at the homestead... haven't been on the computer in a few days! (Can you believe it?!? :lol)

 

I did want to pop in and say hello, I'm all caught up on posts and sending positive thoughts, hugs and prayers to all of you - I'm not going to list individuals because I'll probably inadvertently miss someone... so it's all of you, like it or not! :hug

 

Alli - great bag, and your niece is adorable!! I voted for that sparkly eyed curliecue!!

 

Have a great weekend, all!! :hug

honestly I'm not really sure. I was considering a draw string, maybe doing a DC ch 1 or 2 and dc skipping the same number of stitches..and then maybe a ruffle row on top of that?

 

But, not sure if that diminishes the usefulness of the tote, to not be able to hold as much. Sigh.. maybe I'll just make the normal handles

If you do make it with different handles, let us know how it turns out!

 

 

I hope everyone has a great weekend. My goal for the day is to go to joanns and get yarn for the scarf I need to make. Now lets see if that actually happens.

Good morning ladies! Hope everyone is well today! I have been cleaning out my garage for the last few days. I am hoping to build a studio of sorts out there so I might possibly be able to find all of my crafty stuff. :lol

 

You would be amazed at the stuff I am finding that I had forgotten I even had! (If anyone is interested in some Lionbrand wool yarn, I have 7 skeins of it for sale for $10 in the destashing thread)

 

Anyway, :hug to all of you and I hope your Saturday is extra special!

nice sounds like you got the makings of a woolman's cave :rofl:rofl:rofl

 

well i been hunting for new accommodations found a couple and called a couple but had to leave messages. so I'm looking for august 1st.the hardest part tho because I have no friends or family is getting help to move and a truck to move with...ah well baby steps

 

I have also been reading up on small and toy breeds and decided that a chihuahua would suit me best. small and easily portable so i can hide him in a carrier that looks like a big purse and smuggle him on the bus to get to the beaches, paths and parks etc :lol:lol:lol

 

so now that i have done the housing and breed search for today i must search for doggie patterns :hook:hook:hook

I finished my second STB and am about to go to joanns to finally get the yarn I need to start my project. Hopefully I can go in, get only the yarn I need and get out without buying anything else... we shall see how that actually ends up going.

 

Oh and here's a picture of STB 2 (not the best quality picture but you get the point):

I can highly recommend a toy fox terrier as well. Moose weighs all of 6lbs, his 1/2 sister is only 4.
