Granny Squares for those that need them cal 2018

Recommended Posts

Good morning, everyone.  I haven't been around much so my computer time has been cut down dramatically.

Very hot here and even though hubby and I got an A/C and put in for my parents, I come home to a hot place with no fan taken out yet nor my A/C set up.  I hope to get a chance this morning before heading out.  We really need some rain and it does look cloudy here, so just maybe.....

It's too hot to crochet so I have been bringing my tatting along with me.  It is a great portable project.

Two family members are in the hospital- one with a broken neck from an accident avoiding a woodchuck and the other with 3 stints in her heart.  It sure makes you realize how things can change in an instant, in life.

Have a wonderful day, everyone.

Good Morning.  The sun is out, but maybe not for long.  My grass is so high I am waiting for George of the jungle to pop out.

While that big yellow ball is up in the sky, I want to get some pictures.  I finished a beach tote and  some kitchen stuff for the American Legion.

Hot, Hot, Hot and Humid for the rest of the week, but at least we are getting rain.  Saving me money, I can use to buy yarn. :rofl

 

Off to see what the rest of C'ville has to offer.:dance

Morning!

Been up way to early . Already got a lot accomplished but, would of rather done it later on. But once I'm up I can't just lay. Looks like I will be fighting a migraine today. I hope I took the medicine soon enough. We will see.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day. Take it easy!

Brenda is gettining better, crochetfan1 is hot, tampa is tired of rain, pineknot is food shopping and tribble is busy busy busy,.lol that's all i know, its beenh ot here too, but we stay in on those days, neither one of us is fond of hot and humid, and i might add cold and snowy either in the winter, ha ha...

 

aaaif i had a pool tampa, i would isure  be in it ever summer day i could... i swam everyday every summer wheni was y ounger, at the neighborhood popl from 1 pm to 9 pm when they closed, lol we lived the pool in those days......Then they started closing at 5 till 6 for a supper break, but then we just sat around, and waited for iit to oopen agaain outside in the park next to the pool lol  we'd eat later we always said!! 

amd when we werent here qwe would be horseback riding in at a little stable, out there on the dirt road somewhere, gone now i think, turned out it was ran by my little sisters hubbbys grandparents, but we didn't even know him them, small world huh...

I love the pool. but for the last few days, it has done nothing but rain.  We get some sun in the morning, but by the afternoon the rain comes in.  It rains for about an hour, then the clouds go away again.

We have what they call a free form pool.  It is not made for swimming, but for relaxing.  Bad thing is I get sea sick riding on a raft.  Go figure, but I go in as often as I can.

Good Morning.  Sun is out, but I can see the rain clouds in the distance.  We have had sheets of rain, the kind you have to pull over if you are driving, everyday for about an hour, then it stops.

Finished my Chewbacca.  Trying to get pictures today, while I can see the sun.

That is it for now.  Will try to check in later.

I have had internet connection problems with the computer all week until now.  It either would not connect and if it did it didn't stay connected long. Then I have basically had no signal on my cell phone to use it to get on.

#1 I hope you have your ac hooked up by now.  The heat just sucks the energy right out of you.  Last year at this time we were having to have a new ground source heat pump installed as our old one quit and of course it was during one of the really hot weeks

Katy nice squares.  I hope you get the password thing straightened out soon. I know they say you shouldn't write them down but there is no way I could ever remember all the passwords for all the sites we have used through the years.  I found it frustrating in the beginning that any place you went on the internet you pretty much had to join and use a password.  We have a  notebook where we logged them all in and then and then log new ones in if we change them.  Between us we have 5 email accounts and then all my craft sites, all the coupon or rewards, etc, etc.  

Snowbear glad to see you checked in and that you and dh are doing better.  Seems like its been awhile since Lea has checked in so hope she and her family are okay.  

Its been hot and humid here so much so that now they give the heat index which has been upper 90's to 105 all week.  Then there are thunder storms at night.  New roof looks really nice but sure can smell the asphalt in it after it gets hot.  When I was stressing over the color the guy made the comment that you don't really see it much anyway and I pointed out that was not true in our case.  Since its an earth contact I see our roof anytime I am outside.  It's basically part of my landscape.  The old white roof had gotten really ugly.  The house used to also be white but several years ago we had siding put on and it is almond or a very light cream to beige color so we went with a brownish roof this time.  We have a couple of issues but hopefully they won't amount to anything.  I have spent any spare time out looking and picking up nails and staples.  Found quite a few by sight and with the little round magnet on a pole.  Dh stopped yesterday on  his way home from work to get the long magnet on wheels and I found quite a few more with it today.

Katy just a thought.  You are still logged on through one of your devices, right?  Since you are logged in can you  go to account settings and update it with your new email.  Then go to the device that is not logged in and request a new password which hopefully would be sent to your updated email that you can access.   To access account settings on your pc go all the way to the top right of your screen and click the arrow by your screen name.

Hope your headache gets better! I am having a heck of a time with the new layout, lol. I had selected multiple quotes while reading and when I finished, only one quote showed up... Just a quick check in today... Been getting fathers day things together. Little Tribble has had fun making things for his daddy. We learned new things with new crafts on thigs to do and things not to do! LOL. Almost ruined the mug we made for Mr Tribble but I think it's going to be okay, with a lot of character since we did things that shouldn't have been done with it.

 

Hope everyone is having a great day

It has been one heck of a week, between the storms and the humidity.

We finally got a photo shop that works, so I have posted some of the pictures of things I have finished.

First is the Strawberry Kitchen set for the American Legion.

Next is the 2 Chewbacca's I made that the friend's husband will choose from.  The small one is exactally like the pattern, the other is made with boa yarn.  Wish I could find light brown boa.

Last but not lease, I want to thank Kathy for the very nice card.  I like a note no matter when I get it.  You made my soggy day sunny.:sun

Mary Jo the strawberry set and Chewies are cute.  Glad you got the photo thing straightened out as I would really miss not seeing all your projects.  

Its been a miserably hot and humid day out today.  We had storms last night and got nearly two inches of rain and more is on the way this evening. We stopped this morning and got the front and side bumpers for our riding mower.   The old ones had broke off (I hate all the plastic on things like mowers and cars anymore).  We were pleasantly surprised that they actually had them in stock and not having to wait on them to come in.  Then we went to my sister's house and I went out to shop and run errands with my sister and niece while dh went over to weed eat at my dad's house.  

I  have enough squares ready to put together for another lapghan for w4w and a bag full of squares for PRR.
