I've been happy with KnitPicks-3 sets of them. Also have a few Deborah Norville-set of 3 I got a deal on at Joanns

We dressed up for Easter when I was little as well. (I hated it) and we dressed up for church every Sunday as well. I was a tomboy and I hated dresses. Still won't wear them

Me too! Had to wear the hat and white gloves for church- peeled them asap after Mass. my mom was the only one of her sisters that drove so she would gather them up and they would go to "town" for Easter shopping. The aunts were much more well off than my family. They would get new dresses, hats, shoes and gloves- sometimes dyed to match. My mom was happy if she got to get a new dress. A big treat was to have lunch at Scott's or Woolworths counter.

Made beef noodle soup last night so we have leftovers. Also banana bread for dessert.

I have 4 Joann's within easy drive of me, all follow the same policy. However, Michael's was not always so generous. They have changed their coupon policy in recent years- different management or too many complaints?

Our Michaels will honor more than one coupon also competitors'. Joanns will honor multiple -I have used 3-4 60% off at one time-they all had different code numbers. They will usually scan all I have "just in case". They also have a SR. day once a month. HL you can only use one at a time. Not worth it to me

Just asking - why did you write this as an "either/or" kind of thing? Why can't one do both, attend church and still eat chocolate, hunt for eggs, gather with friend, give gifts, decorate a tree, dance, make flower crowns, dress up and eat candy? Why must it be do one OR do the other?

I was wondering the same thing. You can celebrate the reason for the holiday(Jesus' birth, resurrection, etc) and still enjoy the secular(santa, Easter bunny) one doesn't have to take away from the other, unless YOU let it. i personally get annoyed with those that always have to pipe Up about the "reason for the season".

Very nice!

We would make up small cooler with a drink or two and a cup of yogurt or some fruit for my mom. She would keep it near her chair within easy reach. She was not one for hot drinks except for her morning coffee so it worked well

Sometimes I actually forget to rinse off fresh veggies from the store - well, we are not dead yet & have been careless for many years, I guess. hahaha!

Yep! Me too!

Do you socialize with them outside of the prayer shawl ministry? It's possible they have been friends long before getting involved in the prayer shawl ministry, which would explain why they do this together and haven't included you. Probably nothing personal against you. As far as comments, some people are just tactless- they have no clue how they come across to others

On a similar note , my grandmother fell years ago in her home. When the paramedics arrived they began by using her first name. Of course she did not respond to them. I actually had to say “this is Mrs. Soandso. It took them about another 30 sec to catch on.

Poor time to be picky!

I agree. If you haven't had a tetanus shot in the past 10 years please talk to your Doctor and get one. Better safe than sorry. An unvaccinated 6 year old in our state got tetanus from a cut. He spent 2 months in the hospital and his medical bills were almost $1 million, not counting follow up rehab.

Off topic, but I just heard that on the news. I didn't know you could survive tetanus. Thought once you got it that was it. Glad they could save the boy.

I bought my GD short thick needles and bulky yarn when she wanted to learn. She was 5, maybe. I got her started and her mom supervised. She has made scarves, headbands and Barbie clothes so far. She is now 8. I wanted the kids needles for her but at the time I couldn't find them. I know Joann's does carry them sometimes.

I've always liked DST, but then the change never bothers me either way.
