Granny Squares for those that need them cal 2018


Recommended Posts

Good Morning.  Very hot and humid.  I can hear the thunder in the distance and see the clouds SW of us.  Moving very slow.

Well the package was delivered, so I can relax now.

I hope to get the last part of the doll I made today and get a picture of her.

Hope everyone is feeling better and we all have a great day.

After noon all!

It's been crazy here.

Just taking care of fur babies and then yesterday getting ready to get supper made discovered the freezer wasn't working. Lost a lot of food. Got it all cleaned up It's such a shame! This is the dang 4th freezer in 10 years that stopped working on us. They sure don't make them like they use to. Just tell me some good things? I have to see , hear ,live and be nothing but good. It has to go a different direction for me. I'm loosing it! Think positive!!! I keep telling myself.

Hey everyone I am still here. Doing good. Husband is finally well.  Just trying to stay cool. It is about 92 here in E Tn. We got out tomatoes plants out. Some of them. We got more to set out. The reason I haven't been chatting to much. I have busy  crocheting. And doing plastic canvas work. I can't take pictures, right now.  I have to get another card for my camera. Then I can. Well take care everyone. Arlene   :hug

Have you ever tried the different desserts at a Chinese buffet and like me thought they didnt taste sweet? 

 

Yes!!  The only desserts at a Chinese buffet that I like are the coconut macaroons!  The others are too bland to suit me!

Hi Ladies,

I have a request and was wondering if any of you ladies can help me.

I need to make a afghan . I will be collecting 25- 30. 12inch squares in the colors of grays and Browns. Red heart super saver yarn would be wonderful.  If I can get these by August 5 that would be wonderful. I know it's not a lot of time. A single mother spilled hot bacon grease on her hand and arm. It is truly terrible burn and she is in a lot of pain. That will give me enough time to put it together and get it mailed. If I collect them sooner then when get it made and mailed sooner. I appreciate all the help you wonderful ladies do.

Should I make a seperate thread for this ? Or is here just fine?

This was our last "cooler" day (lower to mid 90's actual temps) as we are heading on up into the 100's.  I hope to not be out much as I already dont feel too good.  On the phone today and again tomorrow as the paperwork insurance office sent is not matching our discussion.

As usual all heat and humidity here. 

Sorry about the freezer.  That is my worry.  I will wake up and the fridge will of stopped working during the night.  Everytime they come to do the yearly, they tell us to keep the one we have till it dies.  The new ones are not made as well.

We just got Tampa Guy one of those recliners that also is a lift chair.  He really likes it.  I have yet to sit in it.

Well off to see what is going on in the world.

Hugs to all.

Good Morning!

Mary Jo, your new little lady is adorable.

Snowbear, it's good to hear from you.

Sandra, sorry to hear about the freezer. 

Today's plans include some laundry and a lot of sewing. I'm working on outfits for the baby to wear next week when we go to Orlando for the American Sewing Guild national conference and a little Disney fun too.

Have a great day everyone.

Thank you pineknott that will be a great help. 

Yeah, they really don't make things to last at all. Hubby and daughters want to replace the tube tv. I do not for it still works just fine. It's really big and heavy but not ready to change it out just yet. So far I am winning.

Good Morning.  Got another package out in the mail.  This one is a doll with several outfits for Bailey4's charity.  3 more packages to go and I can start on next years stuff.

Hot and humid, but I have to go to the store this morning.

Working on the pocket for the new tote today.  I know I am early, but I have a little time, so I thought I would get it ready.

Have a great day everyone.:hug

Linda I am not too sure that the birds wouldn't cook if they use my bird bath right now.  We were late getting is set up this year because we waited until after we got the new roof and I really haven't noticed  birds using it yet.  Guess they prefer the neighbor's and our ponds.  The check battery light came on in dh's old car yesterday.  He took the battery out and took it in to be checked and they said it was fine so now it sits until it's appointment at the shop next Thurs.  

Sandra mailed you two squares this morning.  PO eta is Mon.  I just happened to have a skein of RHSS shaded browns laying out to figure out how to use it when I saw your request.
