Granny squares 2nd annual Happy Birthday Friendship/Comfortghan

Recommended Posts

sopo congrats, I loved your gracious acceptance speech.  It starts the month out on a fun note.   I had a feeling it might be you this month so I already have four 6 inchers ready to mail and I am almost finished with a 12 incher.  Prayers going out for your friend.  I hope they can do some thing for the pain.  The hedgies have grown so fast and are so cute.  

 

dragn, prayers for the family from the emr call

 

owlvamp, hoping you feel better, please don't overdo and make yourself worse

well, uh hem, that was some special speech, we are honored to be your subjects Sopo, for the month....and i love the crown you picked!! Glad things with your freind are improved, chronic pain is hard to deal with for those that have it and those that are around it as well.

 

Those hedgies, omg, dixie babies, how very cute!!! make me almost want one, lol

 

Sandra, don't do too much, did Dr.say you had a full on concussion, or what was the diagnosis,and why are you trying to clean up the yard in that condition!! shame on you..

 

You my dear Kuddles, are quite welcome, I told ya, when I made that one, it just screamed your name!! lol and wow too, that got there fast, lol

 

Pineknott, good to see your post, I don't have much cotton either, but i used what  i had, and I think it made four 6 inchers.

 

that was one ball of cotton, AND a tiny bit I had left over from another ball.

 

I did a square today, but it's not off my camera yet, but I will post it on the square a day thread soon, saw some pretty ones there when I was there earlier!!

 

hope you all find your hooks and start stitchin' !!   see ya later.

I would like to thank everyone for making this possible, I would like to thank Katie for hosting this crochet swap, I would like to thank all you wonderful swappers, I would like to thank the companies that keep us in delightful yarn, I would like to thank Kermie for always treating me like a queen and I would like to thank God for His blessings. 

 

Seriously, guys. I am very honored to be this month's queen. Closest I ever got to being a queen was I got nominated in high school for homecoming queen but we moved before it happened. 

 

I will definitely wear my crown with pride. :) Thank you.  

 

Oh that literally made me LOL! And Miss Piggy... I almost died...  :lol  :lol  :lol  Thanks for that! And I'll need to make a run to the store, but I'll definitely get you some squares on the way! Those little babies are so cute!!  :manyheart

Oh Hobby Lobby absolutely makes it worth it!! Congrats! 

 

More working on Sheila's ghan, but I'll get back to other things soon. I'm hoping to start putting the ghan together this weekend and then on to my WIPs! 

 

Happy Humpday, all! We're over halfway to the weekend!!  :yay

Hi everyone.

 

I'm still working on the baby gown.  But first I had to pack my bag for the weekend, I'm heading up to my daughter's tomorrow after work to celebrate her birthday. I haven't seen my daughter, son-in-law and grandkids in a month and I am missing them soooooooo much. We had planned to go to Typhoon Lagoon water park at Disney on Saturday but the weather is not looking very good for that so we may just be hanging out at the house and maybe out for dinner on Saturday. I had some white cotton and I picked up a skein of black today so I can get started on squares for our Queen. Guess that's about it for me.

Not much hooking going on here tonight... DH and I went to Chili's for dinner (he actually said he's getting tired of eating at home - he was sure to start off by saying "I love your cooking, but..." Lol) and there's an AC Moore liquidation store across the parking lot where everything is 40% off but no coupons are used but he wouldn't go with me. He knows me too well. I go in for black and white cotton and will leave with a whole basket of stuff. He said Sister and I can go another day.  :lol  I can't argue with that! 

 

I'm going to try to get a couple rows done on a Sheila square and then it's off to bed. Yay Friday!!!  :yay

Hi everyone. Thank you all for the congrats. I see some are feeling better (yay) and some aren't so feel better soon. Love the square pics, very inspiring, I just need more hours in a day.

 

Speaking of which, whew what a day. I found out at 7 last night, plans with friend changed. So I put a crock pot roast on to cook overnight, made a cream pie, finished at 10 last night, got to bed about 11, up at 12 from the storm... forgot to put the car in the garage so ran out in the rain, got it in, back to bed, up at 1:30, electric flickering so had to check roast. Back up at 3 worrying about it so finally just turned it off, then up at 6 to turn it back on. Drove 45 min with it all to my friend's and worked on his computer for him while he told me all about the specialist appointment. His mass went from 1 cm to 10 cm and they want him back pronto for a cat scan. Last ditch chance, it's possible she could get him on a trial drug but no idea as it's not been used on his condition before. So thanks for the prayers. By 2, he was hurting so bad and all we had done was work on computer and go look at a house he wanted to show me. I can't imagine being in that much pain for so long with no relief. Hard to love someone so much and know there's nothing you can do to take the pain away.

 

Then, I ran some more errands and get home to find out I have a missing package and an important one at that!! It's stuck in Arkansas and I'm in Oklahoma so fingers crossed I can find a way to get it home tomorrow.  I did get a puffy in the mail though! Thank you much Miss Katie for the squares. :) Made me a happy girl. 

 

And apologies for the debbie downer, it's so nice to come here and see you guys all chatting and how things are going and know that tomorrow is a new day, with new joys, so no worries. :)

Good morning, ladies! Sopo, how cool is it that you're our newest bag lady AND this month's queen?! It must feel like an early Christmas. I'm very happy for you. I do hope you can get your package before it's returned to Florida.

 

Katie, a million thanks for the gorgeous square you sent! I will take a photo when the sun rises. It was my extended Christmas too because I received your puffy (plus I'm still on cloud 9 that I was last month's bag lady) and the results of the hearing reporter test I took September 6th. I ranked 5 out of 100+ participants. Whoop-whoop! I am praying that there's a spot available for me very soon. I'm just waiting for the beautiful hook I won from Furls the week I received my tote. The light at the end of this long dark tunnel is getting ever so bright :)

 

I'm off to catch a few winks. I have been crocheting up a storm! I will post photos later.

 

Happy Friday!

 

Later...

 

I'm up! Here's the photo I promised. It's perfect, Katie :)

katy you sent out a lot of pretty squares glad they made it to their forever homes.

 

congrats sopo, on being our Oct queen and the newest Bag Lady.  I hope you get to hold it soon.  They look good in the photos but it is incredible how much better it looks when it is in your  hand.  And I can't believe how many of us on this CAL have one   Also I mailed a package to you today, estimated delivery date is Mon.  

 

angel, so glad to hear that you are seeing light at the end of the tunnel, may it keep getting brighter and brighter.
