My dogs rarely bark back at the TV when dogs are barking there -- It's 6:30 in the morning here, and both my dogs started barking about 10 seconds into this . . . what a hoot! Thank you for sharing.
Do you think I went a little overboard on the Botox???
My first response was, "WHY?" And, assuming there was a reason of a charitable nature involved, I can't imagine sewing them all together and then taking it all apart . . . but the picture is amazing! Reminded me of the AIDS Quilt.
If you like "craft" mysteries, try anything by Monica Ferris. Jeanne Dams writes a contemporary set in England, and a historical set in South Bend, IN. Michael Dymmoch writes all kinds of stuff, and may be hard to find . . . try www.paperbackswap.com
. Alan Bradley writes a delightful series about Flavia de Luce. If you are a dog person, try Virginia Lanier's Bloodhound series. If you like Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse, go to www.stopyourekillingme.com
and see what else she's written. If you like Janet Evanovich, try Daryinda Jones. I could go on . . .feel free to pm me for more suggestions!
Would you mind sharing the pattern? I would love to make this for at least one small boy I know. Thanks. P.J.
We refer to that in our house as "being trapped". I gently lift the critter off my lap, set it down in the warm spot, get whatever I need to get up for, come back, and (if s/he's still there) lift the critter back into my lap. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Just remember: Dogs have masters, Cats have staff.
I've been doing this for a year or two. One of the women in town - she and her mother just crank them out. I'm from Michigan. It's a great way to try out new stitch patterns.
We always got fruit in our stockings when we were children. I think it is a hangover from the days before rapid transportation and storage improvements made it possible to have almost any kind of fruit anytime. Oranges and apples were more expensive in December than in the fall, so they were a special treat.
Have you ever taken her out to lunch, just the two of you, and gently asked her if you have done anything to upset her. You hav noticed that she doesn't seem to like you and because you both love her son, you'd like to know if it's anything that can be fixed. Be calm, be quiet, choose your words carefully and LISTEN. Perhaps this will make a difference. If not, well . . . love her because she's who makes your son happy and loves your grandchildren. Be happy with that - it is an awful lot, in the long run. Good luck.
Oh, just what I need. More yarn in my stash. More patterns I'd like to make . . . someday. I figure that heaven must certainly involve knitting and reading - since I've got enough of both to do to last me until Hell freezes over! Thanks - I'll be in touch.
The Saginaw thing sounds promising - do you have details on where and which Saturdays? Again, I couldn't do anything with this until the middle of January, but weather permitting, it sounds like fun.
I know there's a yarn shop in Bay City (downtown) called (I think) A Piece of Ewe. They have knitting groups, I'm pretty sure. Any weekend you want to come up and knit, I'm open . . . after the middle of January. I'm working every weekend between now and then, or we could start earlier. Let me know. You can e-mail me at email@example.com if you want to trade information. Thanks.
Thanks. I know that the quilters meet in the town hall on a regular basis; I'll have to check for knitters. I work an odd schedule, so I was hoping to find some folks who could work with it - we'll see. Thanks again.
