Sherone, nice dress. And thank you for the little history lesson!

I noticed a lot of people around me who are getting excited for Fall so I decided to start on a Halloween wreath. I got all my supplies yesterday and started working on it. So far I'm super excited with how the wreath looks. I can't wait to finish it and share it with you all.

Sherone -- we spent many years doing the mountain man rendezvous. I loved primitive camping and really miss it, but DH found a new interest in archery so now I stay home. I'm still using up some of the fabric I bought for shirts in quilts.

I love to knit, tat, sew and crochet. My favorite though is crochet because if I make a mistake I can just pull it out to the error and move on. Not so easy with tatting, knitting or sewing.

Hi Sherone,
Thank you for sharing a bit of history. I did not know about the three color rule. The dress looks very well made.

I love to crochet! I have been spending lots of these warm days with hook in hand. Making small projects for gifts and RAOK's as well as swaps.

Here is what I have been up to....sewing for my little Mtn Man Rendezvous shop. Here is a authentic Pre-1840 reproduction of a girls Plain Indian Ribbon Dress sans the ribbon. Ribbon was expensive, could not always be traded for and was not always included on everyday wear. The fabric would have been of a calico nature, but would have no more than 3 colors. That is all the weaving machines of the day could produce. Homespun with more colors would also have been very expensive and probably not traded.

Well---I wished I lived close to you guys too and I would be a good student of crochet. I do know how to do the basic chain stitch or whatever you call it, but that is as far as I ever got. That is a beautiful beanie---the colors are amazing and so perfect for fall.

Barbara, crocheting is my way to decompress at the end of the day, so I always make sure to take some time before bed to crochet. I too would love to teach you how to crochet if we lived closer.

Nancy, you are so sweet! Your hat turned out so cute! Those colors are perfect for the upcoming fall. It will keep you all warm.

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.

Krista

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!

Krista
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.

MaryJanesNiece Posted - Aug 05 2019 : 3:09:14 PM
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.
