Alethea! Thank you so much for the new dishcloths! I just got them yesterday. I will have to get pics when I find my camera. They are so pretty and will make wonderful trivits for hot serving dishes as well. You are such a jewel to make these for me!!! Thanks again!

It's so nice our friends came in town so we have an excuse for a stay-cation squeezed in with a little work. We went to 6 Flags yesterday afternoon after DH met w/ the electricians in the am. Love it, but feeling a little beat up today. I know you are super busy getting your breeding coops all set up and getting settled in your new place.
Gotta run for now. I think we are going to St. Louis w/ our friends for the afternoon.
I hope everyone has a fantastic day!!!
That sounds like a blast! How cool that you got to take time out to have fun with your friends!!! I love it when we get out of town guests.

Came home to 119 yesterday but it was only 102 in Visalia. It was 92 when I woke this morning but it's cloudy, therefore humid as there is a system that might bring us some thunderstorms. We don't usually get them but one never knows here. My granddaughter flies back to GA tomorrow and my daughter back to WA to get ready for their move to CA. They have to be out of their house by the 20th of July and will move to Apple Valley, CA from there. It's about 80 miles from me so it's close enough for me to visit for the day.
I have over 10 blocks crocheted in 12" and 6" and one in a 6x12". They're coming along. I'll take photos in a day or so whenever I get caught up around here. I want to look for some patterns I can use for the 6x12 blocks.
I worried about my old dog and the heat so at the last minute conferred with my neighbor and agreed for me to leave the dog in the house where it's cool and she'd come down several times a day and let her out to go to the bathroom. Bless her! It's great to have neighbors like that. Jada didn't have any accidents in the house either. The chickens made it just fine. I'm wetting down places where they can lay in the wet ground to stay cooler and they seem to like it.
Welcome newcomers. The more the merrier.
So glad you had a nice trip Betty. Great neighbors are priceless!!!

If the squares get done and I'm ready to start rectangles, I'll try to get a pattern there. I might have to go to Redding to do that. Otherwise, would it be weird to make regular rectangles, like the first third of a scarf, maybe with borders around them?
Nope not weird at all. That's what I was planning on doing. Then I planned on doing a simple edging so they can be joined easily.

I do have a question or two. I skimed through all the pages and saw where you can make more then one set. If you make more then one set do you need to sign up more then one time so you get the extras back??? (hope question made sense)
Do you do this regularly? Is there ever a swap where you can use up stash colors you already have?
Oh we'd love to have you join us Kassaundra!!! And to answer your question, at the end of the swap sign ups I will take a count of who is doing more than one set and that person will be counted twice, or more times so they receive more back as well. Yes I have heard there have been swaps done to use up yarn scraps before but Kim can tell you more about it.

Hi Cathy. No you can make just the amount needed for the participants that are receiving in any type you want. For instance if we have 12 folks then you can make 12, 6" squares or 6 of 2 different sizes. You only need to make 1 for each person.
