Bavarian Crochet Caron Lapghan: $37.96
As will all home crocheted or knitted items, you may find loose ends that have popped out (but will not unravel - weaving in ends was never my strong point), dog hair, &/or MY hair & has been displayed on & off on our sofa pending sale ... but this item will be professionally cleaned before being professionally shipped out to you.

Good afternoon everyone! I'm feeling better today, yay! I started the 2nd of 3 panels on the knitting machine afghan & worked on the Ravenclaw afghan for a bit last night. I also checked out a new Minecraft server yesterday. Well, 2 actually. The 1st one, I was 17,000+ blocks from where I wanted to be, so I started the long journey to where I wanted to start out. I was ALMOST there when I came across a village (food & supplies!) but every villager was a zombie & I died. I lost everything, tools, weapons, food ... I ended up back at spawn (17,000+ blocks away again) & tried /back. I didn't have access to that command. I tried /return, then /ret ... oh well. I logged out & found another server. I did better on the 2nd one & saved it to my list of servers. Today I'm going to log into the AdultCraft server for a while, then tonight I'm going to work on my crocheted sweater. Have a great weekend everyone!

“And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.” —Douglas Coupland

Good afternoon everyone. Apparently I have a bit of a cold. I felt horrible & was tired all day yesterday. Nothing I could really put my finger on, I just felt 'blah'. Today I overslept by 2 hours, so yeah ... I have a cold. Moving very slowly today. Lots going on & possible plans tonight out of the house. I did add a tiny 3x3 patio in front of my crops on my Earth Glow Minecraft server yesterday & today I plan to find a brand new server out there somewhere. I almost finished the 1st of 3 panels on the knitting machine yesterday, Pete got home as I was sewing up the end in preparation of taking it off of the machine. It's half sewn & still hanging on there. I'll take care of that & start the 2nd panel today. I got some work done on my crocheted sweater, but not much. We went to bed early since I wasn't feeling well. Tonight, if we don't go out, I'll work on the Ravenclaw crocheted afghan a little. Have a great day everyone!

Good afternoon everyone! I finished the border on the machine knit afghan yesterday, yay!
I started a new machine knitted afghan after that ... same one, only larger this time by almost 25%. It has a mix of thin & thick yarns, so it will be a little different. The one I just finished was consistent as far as yarn thickness. I also added a silo to my Original Minecraft server town that I'm building (lizc864.g.akliz.net):

I worked on my crocheted Ravenclaw afghan for a bit last night & today I'll work on my crocheted sweater & spend some time on my Earth Glow Minecraft server (lizc864e.g.akliz.net). So far I only have a crop for food in that world. Let's see what I add today after I go mining for materials. Have a great day everyone!

Good morning everyone! The good news is, I was up early this morning. The bad news is, it was because some telemarketer has been calling me all morning. 5 times so far. As usual, IF you answer it's just dead air on the line. They never say anything. That's why I never bother answering. Well, that & I don't want to buy anything they're selling ... or if it's a bill collector it's usually for "Frank". I don't know any Frank & I've had this phone number for 16 years. "Frank" needs to stop using my number to take out loans that he has no intention of paying back. Yesterday I logged into my Original Minecraft server (again) & big surprise, again today too. I looked at my HTML code & there's nothing wrong with it. The code for randomness just wants to pick the same one over & over & over & over. I have no idea why, but it's getting old. I really DO want to play my other servers & other people's servers once in a while. Sheesh! Anyway, I built a nice outdoor area in spawn town yesterday:



I still haven't been crocheting or knitting any of my usual projects. Yesterday was insane & I ran out of time while still working on the border of the machine knit afghan. Today I'm going to continue working on that border until I have to go to a BOA meeting this evening. I can't wait to finish that border ... it looks great so far & I love finishing a project. I also love starting new ones ... choosing the pattern, then choosing the yarn. So exciting for me! Have a great day everyone!

Good afternoon everyone. Yesterday was good, I never crocheted the graphgan last night, but I did finish the afghan that was on the knitting machine & now I'm working on the border which is crocheted. So far it's looking good! Today was a bit of a mess right out of the gate. Early this there was a very close lightning strike that woke me up. It was so close that our thermostat on the wall was glowing a bright blue/green after the power went out. No fire though, luckily. The power came back on just after 9:a, right when I got woken up by a phone call to run an errand. The power company had JUST left from across the street & before I could get out the door I heard a very loud bang outside. It sounded like a transformer going. We still had power though. About 5 minutes later I heard it again. I called it in. Dispatch toned out the F.D. to an electrical fire at OUR house. No, that's not what I said. Ugh. I expected a bunch of fire trucks to come screaming up the street ... nothing. Crickets. Then dispatch sent out a 2nd tone & page. Again, crickets. Damn, glad my house WASN'T on fire! Then the 3rd time, they toned out the neighboring town. They finally get here & I explain to them what I had told dispatch about a transformer somewhere. They left & the power company stayed behind to listen for where it was coming from if it did it again. I ran my errand down in Dallas & when I got back the power company was working on a transformer just down the street. Ah HA! It was THAT one. Anyway, now it's after 2:p & I've only gotten this far today. Later I hope to do another build in creative on my Original Minecraft server & then work on the border of the machine knitted afghan some more. IF I finish the border tonight, I'll work on my Peaceful Pastels afghan which only has 4 rows to go (still). Oh yeah, that reminds me ... I need to check my HTML code because it keeps choosing my Original server WAY too often. Did I make a typo in the code somewhere?? Sheesh! I'd like to play my OTHER 3 servers too once in a while. Have a great day everyone!

Classic Elegance Afghan: $151.85

Good afternoon everyone! I caught up on a little of the week's lost sleep yesterday & last night we went to bed really late so I not only slept late today, but caught up on more sleep. So I woke up REALLY late. Like, past NOON late. So, what do you want to do for your birthday today? Me: Sleep. I'm officially old I guess. HAHAHA! We spent a long time out running errands yesterday & had a combined Birthday / Father's Day dinner at Saltgrass Steakhouse. It was amazing, as usual. Once we got home & all the groceries were put away, I worked on my favorite Entrelac afghan. Today I plan to log into the Gamealition Minecraft server, but may not because it's the ONLY server in my list of servers that hasn't been updated to 1.12 yet & that would mean I'd have to close the launcher, reopen it, switch to the 1.11.2 profile, load the game again ... nah. I'll just choose a different server if Gamealition isn't updated yet. I hope they are though. It's a great server & I've been on it for a very long time. I'll also work on the crocheted Ravenclaw Graphghan today. Have a great day everyone & Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!
