Just finished a beanie I started a while back. I love the autumn colors. I added a small golden button for an embelishment. I could have used a wooden button but can't find my stash of buttons.

Geez Barbara, I wish I lived close to you. I would love to teach you to crochet. My 11yr old neighbor taught me when I was 12yrs. I taught my boss and a couple of co-workers. Hey, you could teach me how to cook!

I agree Krista has a full plate and then still serves dessert. What a gal. :)

I'm in trouble now lol! I started to look at Pinterest for some new Fall crochet ideas and saved more projects then I could make in the season! Oh boy. I wish I had more hours in the day to crochet! Now I just need to pick my favorites and make them first.

Linda, yes they do. They are like a sponge and soak up the water. That's what makes them reusable. They really aren't that heavy. The inside is completely hollow. So they may look big but they are not heavy.

Krista - with the water balloons, do they just hold water in the yarn? how heavy are they? They look pretty big and heavy when filled with water.

Here are my completed water balloons! Now that I shared them on social media I have another friend wanting some! Now I'm back to making some more.

Judith, that is crazy. It must really be hot where you are. We have been pretty hot here as well. It rained yesterday and the temperature drop was perfect! But now we are back up in the 90s again. Running through the sprinklers sounds like so much fun! I think I should play in them this weekend with my kids.

There have been a few days here that running through a sprinkler would feel heavenly. It wasn't too bad today though. In the 80's. Judith, you are right that there is no age limit for running through the sprinkler.

Especially when the water coming out of our cold water tap is 90 degrees

When the temperature is in the triple digits there is no age limit for water balloons and running thru the sprinklers.

Lori, I'm just sewing the ends in today. Then I will take a picture of all of them before I put them in the mail. So far I love how they turned out and want to make some for my own kids. Honestly I think they would be so fun to play with as adults lol!

loribeck Posted - Aug 06 2019 : 6:48:54 PM
Krista, I can't wait to see the water balloons when you get them done. What a great idea. I like the fact that they are reusable. I would never have thought of something like that.

Judith, the quilt is beautiful. I am going to take a quilting class at Sauder's Village. They teach a lot of different classes there.

I have just about finished all my water balloons. I will be finishing them tonight, so I can get them mailed out tomorrow. Then I think I will start on some Christmas presents. I want to finish them early.

That is really pretty Judith!

Thank you Betty and Krista -- The border is on all four sides. I was getting tireds of making sampler quilts so decided to make some one-block ones for a change.

Judith, your Bear's Paw quilt is gorgeous. Does the top and bottom border extend to the sides also. Finishes the quilt very well.

I will get a better picture once they are done!

MaryJanesNiece Posted - Jul 31 2019 : 12:43:54 PM
Sherone, let me know how it goes!

Lori, so I use a thick blanket yarn and crochet it in the shape of a balloon. Then all you do is place it in water and it absorbs the water like a sponge and you throw them! So they are reusable and don't cause excess waste like normal popped balloons do! Let me snap a quick picture. I have 2 made but they aren't finished. I still need to sew in ends and wrap some yarn around the end to give it the cinched look.

Ok Krista, what are the crocheted water balloons? I'm curious.
