I read that Jessie had to make boob sets. I make dolls and someone asked me to add boobs and make a bra for their doll. Has anyone else had any strange requests? I've got 1/2 a blue potholder done, but I'm getting bored with potholders. When I finish it I'm going back to smilie squares for the baby afghan till get bored with them.

Jessie, hope you and your family get to feeling better real soon.

Ellie, no strange requests here but I'm never surprised at what I hear.

I worked on the Phoenix blanket today and finished a skein...+2.

@Inkked0317 Jessie, you can post the boobs. If kids don't know that boobs are for breastfeeding, there is something wrong with this world.

BTW, awesome Wonder Woman shawl!

Great answer ! :rofl

My blessings are abundant! 💖 A very special friend is kind enough to share her stash with me. I received this gift this week!

I just got in a Mary Maxim shipment!  The good news is that I now have the yarn kit to make my great-niece a baby sweater for the impending little arrival.  Yes, you read that right.  I'm already a great-great-aunt and am about to be again!  My sister is 16 years older than I am, so we have weird age differences in my family.  My niece is 48 and my great-niece is 21.

The bad news is that I'm going to be in the negatives for this week!

I've picked so many green beans, cucumbers and some of my big tomatoes have turned red. I'm eating a lot of salads and beans, am also making a 2nd batch of pickles. I made 13 more smilie squares (17 more to go), used 1 skein of white but not enough of orange, yellow or green to count (+ 2). I hope that 2 more skeins of white will be enough to finish the afghan.

Hi everyone!!! I started out the week needing to buy yarn for a commission piece (Lost Souls shawl but need to make 4 & join them together to make a baby blanket), so I bought 6 skeins (-12). But I've been hooking up a storm this week!! I've made a guitar stuffy, 2 pairs of baby boots and a matching hat, 2 Angel's, a pair of baby sneakers, and the first of the 4 Lost Souls pieces! All told, I've used up 1 skein and 9 balls (+11). I'll attach pictures of everything lol.

Sigh...:ohdear  I've spent so much time on the moon this year I may as well buy a condo there. So much yarn, not enough stitch time in the day!

Have a happy week everyone!

But at least you have lots of material for rainy days/hard times or whatever. LOL  And so much of it has been gifts. Can't beat that.

I made pretty good progress on the phoenix blanket this weekend. I would have had crochet time (and time to post the scores) this morning before we headed home but I had to rearrange my plans so DH wouldn't whine about me not going with him to the hamfest.

Hope everyone has lots of crochet time this week!

I made some more squares for the afghan (11 more to go), got bored and made another potholder. I used 2 balls cotton and rolled 2 more down (+4) :yay  . I think the people who do the craft table at the church fair are going to like the smilie potholders. I made 2 batches of pickles and I had enough green beans to make a green bean casserole.

I made a few more squares, but still not enough :yarn used. I got an e-mail from my brother, he asked me to design an ID/passport holder that you hang around your neck (sent pic of store bought one). He wants non itchy, maybe cotton, so I might have to get more Sugar & Cream. This will give something other than squares and potholders to work on. My score this week will most likely stay at + 4.

Ellie, the green beans sound so good. My mother used to can green beans and they were the best.

I used up a skein on the planet earth blanket...+2.

My think garden is done for this year. I still have an eggplant left and maybe some cherry tomatoes. I picked the last of the green beans, cucumbers and peppers. I picked all the large red and green tomatoes to make India relish. I left the plants just in case I get more veggies. I made another potholder an some more afghan squares (3 more to go). I used a skein of cotton (+2) :cheer .

Our garden didn't do well this year. We've had a problem with tomatoes for several years now. This year even the eggplants have not done well and they usually produce almost too well. We got a halfway decent amount of squash and a few tomatoes and eggplants. Several years ago we stopped growing peas and butterbeans when a friend started his truck farm. Much less work to buy already shelled from him.

Hello everyone! I hope you've all had a good week. :) 

This week I used up the last of a ball of white thread on a garden flag I'm working on & a skein of Cascade Arcadia on a Tee I'm knitting. 

WTD +4

Have a Happy Week!
