TI made about ten of them 30 years ago and I think just damp it a little and then stomp on it . Mine were oval and still using some in my bathroom and no wear out to them . Really nice

TI learned to tat first at age ten,then I also learned to crochet about the same time with fine thread. Taught myself continental at about 18 years old by a book. I could not get the throwing of the yarn right and so I just picked up the yarn like I was crocheting. I twisted my purl stitch and did not know any better until a German friend showed me the easy way to purl. I made a stole in the fifties and it was ribbing and every stitch is twisted. It looks fine and I still have that first project. Then I made a hat with dps and tore it up a dozen times,but I never had trouble with dps since and am 90 years young now.

I am knitting hats for veterans and just a roll band on circular needles and not fancy at all. Takes me about 8 hours.simple booties for babies about two hours and simple hat for baby about four hours using baby yarn and no 3 needles. Takes longer than you think.

I am 90 and they were on the Highway 65 between Albert Lea and Owatonna Minn where I grew up. So funny

QI knit some but am a seamstress and quilter and do embroidery. Never have to go to the store for thread,buttons, elastic or fabric. Have floss coming out my ears and fabric for quilts. I understand about your stashes. When I knit I just do one thing at a time and simple stuff. I consider knitting meditation and like to read the posts. Makes my day.

I take a teaspoon of honey and a drop of lemon oil and a drop of peppermint oil in warm water every morning and then before I go to bed at night I take a drop of lemon oil and a drop of peppermint oil in cranberry juice. I have not had a cold in over two years and I am 90 years old. Take massive doses of vitamin c when you get a cold. Get the fruit fresh from the grocery store and take 5000 units at a time in orange juice every couple of hours. You can break a fever with massive doses of vitamin c. The doctors do not want you to know this.

Ai took a class from her many years ago and also have several of her books. She was one neat lady and I enjoy her books.

RThat is so nice and gave me a new idea as my beloved dil died in October and I have several pieces of her clothing and I like the idea of small ornaments. Thank you for posting.

Very nice and the log cabin quilt is not the easiest quilt to make as a beginners project. Keep on trucking

I took a one semester typing course in 1944 and that worked when I got a job on the railroad. I used a teletype on the railroad and when I got my first computer in 1988 it did not scare me at all. I told my son that the one thing he needed to take in high school in 1966 was typing and he has used it all his life. We are both writers and have stories on the Internet. Comes in handy.

Do not depend on your friends to fill your needs. Get out and volunteer and give to someone else. Then you will attract new friends who will value you. Make someone else happy and your life will change

Over fifty years ago my Mother and I were sitting out in the front yard and my three year old daughter and a neighbor three year old boy were playing in back of the house, suddenly they were squealing and laughing so we went to check. There was a boiler with about ten inches of water in it and they had carefully taken off their clothes and were jumping up and down in the water. Mom and I had a good laugh.
