Recommended Posts

If it goes over a tad than 5 inches that's okay to. It doesn't have to be perfect. Thank you

Another sunny morning but fair chance of showers later in day.

 

This is my dads birthday. He would have been 83. Meeting at least one sister and niece today to leave peonies from his yard at the cemetary and then we are going to one of his favorite special occasion reastaurants for lunch. It should be a therapeutic day.

 

Owlvamp I love how each owl has its own personality.

 

Mary Jo baby blue sounds like an excellent color choice but I am biased as blue is my favoite color. On owlvamps project those are the specific colors on the red heart super saver labels. She is doing a version of the midnight brights afghan. She completed one and its goegeous. Then she wanted to do two more----giving them to people that could really use a hug. So in order to have consistent sized squares she is asking for 3 rounds in the colored yarn of a traditional granny square to equal 4 inches and then add another round in black. I have to use a J hook to get that size. I have been doing chain 2 for the corners. Owlvamp did I leave anything out?

Hi all. Well the sun is out so it looks like its going to be a good day today! MAry Jo how much cotton does it take to make a tote altogether?? And how long does it usually take then to make it? I Mean in the smaller peaches and cream for Instance? I bet the graphing takes the longest time i know it would for me IF i could do it at all. ITs something i have never tried!You always match the colors of the tote perfectlywith the month and season or holiday you have a good sense of color interpretation, did you ever study art?

 

Ok interviiew over. Just wondering is all. Lol

 

YOu know most of thoe house sellin or buying shows are out of Canada Maybe they have more money there ha ha ha! I used to like the property Brothers but they act so silly sometimes like they are teenagers. I liked them better when they didnt act so i dunno silly! But i watch them if they are on i guess for lack of something

 

better. I watch a lot of nova and history channel too. So I'm off for a bit see you all soon! You all have a perfectly perfect day!!

 

My tummy is growling. got to get something to eat see you all a bit later!

Let's see the main part of the bag takes 4- 2.5 ounce skeins.  The handles take 2 - 2.5 skeins and the sides and outline take about maybe a little more 1 - 2.5 ounce skein.  If I am using variegated yarn, I prefer to use a cone or large skein.  It flows better and less waste.  The tote itself takes about 2 days the pocket take about that time also, but you have to remember, I can practically do them in my sleep. 

 

I try and match the colors, but sometimes I have to go with what I have.  I have gotten yarn from others, especially when they clean out their stash.  I am always open to cotton yarn.

 

I don't watch that much on the house hunters, but once in a while I can't help.  I just wonder where the heck these people get their money.  Hey on couple had 5 kids with one on the way and he was a preacher.  4 girls and 1 boy with another girl on the way. Do not want to be in that house when all those girls become teenagers.

 

I like ID channel and right now it is Hockey at night.  After that I am finished with sports till Football comes back.

 

Oh in case anyone is interested I found a great place to get shoes, socks and other things for dolls at reasonable price and the shipping is not out of hand.  Dora's Doll Boutique.

Katy you may not have all the options because you are on your tablet. I noticed there are more options when using the computer that arent available when using my phone even when using full version over mobile version. The sale ads for the stores here start on Wed too.

 

 

Owlvamp I wish Walmart carried more colors of cotton in cones too. I had been picking up cones of red at Jo Anns using a coupon but last Dec they no longer had cones with red. I went to Walmart's website and they offer a bigger selection of colors in the cones than at the stores. At the time if you spent a certain amount you could get free shipping. The other option was to have it sent to a store and you pick it up and then you didnt pay for shipping.

 

We made it to the cemetery before it poured down rain. It was a nice lunch. It had been 18 years since I have been to that restaurant as its rather pricey but lunch prices on Mon are not bad at all. According to the sign in the lobby it is one of the top 10 steakhouses in the world.

 

They called and said my lawn tractor is fixed and first day they can bring it back is Wed. I told them I will be here waiting for it. Yipeee!

Hello everyone!

 

I spent most of yesterday with my daughter, son-in-law and grandbaby and by the time I got home I was too tired to do anything but sleep. You all have been very chatty and I saw some very pretty projects here.

 

Owlvamp and pineknott, I'm glad the squares made it safely to their new homes.

 

Today was a typical Monday, work and a couple of errands and now for some stitiching time. I hope eveyone has a great evening.

Sun bright, sky blue and NO HUMIDITY.  It is a beautiful day.

 

Just waiting for our water delivery and then the day is mine.

 

That is why we have our kids when we are young CShort.  I remember when we had our first grandson.  TampaGuy and I watched him for the weekend and by the time he left (he was 2 months old) we had birds tweeting over our heads and we needed to go back to work to get a rest. :rofl

Well pineknott I woke up to thunder and rain this morning. Looks like its going to move on out as there is a patch of blue sky off in the west. Its going to be humid today.

 

cshort is school about out? Most of them here are out or just have a day or two left.

 

Well time to chase the cat. She sits and fusses at me if she thinks I have not chased her long enough.

Good Morning.

 

I know why people wear gloves to dye yarn. My fingers are a turquoise color. LOL

I am trying my hand at dye yarn. It's something I have always wanted to do and my first time was not as successful as I would have hoped . I used kool aid and today I am using the dye we use for t-shirts. Just using what I have on hand. So I will let you know how it goes. I have it sitting in the window seal right now soaking. Won't touch it till tomorrow sometime. I'll try not to be so excited and get pictures.

katy snowbear was concerned when you couldnt get on and wanted someone to pm her to explain what was going on so I did. It was a couple of days before you got back on. We get a lot of humidity here too. I have been told that its worse here than it is in FL. Remember how they sneaked in some animation in Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, and Petes Dragon?

 

Owlvamp what kind of yarn are you dying. I am really interested on how it turns out and your thoughts on it

At least your fingers are a pretty color almost Smurfy.

 

ImmaFreek Baby Jade is so cute. I can see how she has grown. Thank you for the picture.

 

Well the sun never came out. Its very humid and looks like it will storm more anytime
