Don't feel bad. We all have times where life keeps us extra busy!

I really missed you all last year during out last few months in Vegas. We were getting ready for the move, couldn't decorate for the holidays, etc. it was a busy time & I felt a disconnect.

You are a consistent presence here, and we all look forward to your posts, CS

((Hugs))!

Thanks for the pattern! Looks like a good one for a variegated yarn. If I'm not mistaken, it's similar to the quickie baby afghan pattern on the Caron "Pound of Love" skeins. (That pattern has come in handy several times when I got a rush request for a baby blanket!) I hadn't seen it done as a square. I'm not a big fan of the sort of open latticework that joins the squares, but I could always joins the squares another way ... Also, must try it in Christmas colors or red, white, and blue! Or fall colors for Halloween ... Thanks again for sharing that!

P.S. The download link doesn't download a PDF, so I just printed it instead.

Regarding the number of posts, I always say:

QUALITY, not QUANTITY.

Happily, this bunch of folks usually provides both.

It was an awfully busy day at work. I didn't get to check in before tonight. One of those days when I'm in the middle of a job, and it's interrupted by a priority job ... so I finish that, go back to the original job, and get interrupted AGAIN ... it went like that all day, and everyone eager to get THEIR job done first. Hardly a moment to breathe, although I did sneak out and take a 10-minute walk just to clear my head. I was feeling very low all day, had something on my mind. Didn't feel better until Mr. got home. We watched a Hildegarde Withers mystery starring good old Edna May Oliver and James Gleason---"The Penguin Pool Murder." Gotta run for now ... we're getting rid of a computer station and chair to make room for a sofa that we're getting from MIL's downsizing, and I have to take a photo of them to send to my BIL to see if he wants to take them.

Congratulations, Brent, to you and your team mates on your championship. And to think that you get to go to Italy--that is icing on the cake!

Anyway, I am glad I could stop in and celebrate 2/3 to Christmas Day with you all! 122 more days remain! ...and in about a month's time, we can all begin partaking in the launch of the Christmas Blossoms thread. Hooray!

I'm exhausted. I should lay down and possibly get to bed. Before I know it, I am quite sure that it will be 6:30 AM. Have a great night!

Okay, got that done.

I've been missing you all day and don't want to leave you yet! But I've got to hit the hay soon.
