    Sorry about the website being down for a day. I was updating website and during the extraction of the files my internet went out. Once it finally came back on, our website was gone with just an error code YIKES!! So I wrote our tech support people and they did the entire upgrade from their end and as you can see it is online and working. I did notice something cool, we can now (Like ♡ <--) others comments. Nice feature. Of course I haven't looked around enough to notice all the changes. The message board is the same, they just added a few goodies here and there with this updating. Hope all is well with you all. Thank you all who have been responding on the roll call. It has been making my day personally, I hope it is also blessing you. I love hearing how you all are. Fun reading about others adventures, good times and such. So thank you all!!

    Nice!! Sounds like you have been very very busy!! I bet the views were breathtaking too.

    I finally have time to just sit and check out the HAIN website. We were away for our annual holiday for July 4th week (Shenandoah mountains for a few nights, Staunton VA for Shakespeare theatre for two nights, and Charlottesville VA for an Irish two-actor play for the last night). Then I spent most of the next week with a friend continuing to recover (very well, thank goodness) from a repair of her 17 year old hip replacement. She was released to drive, which was the primary reason I was there. It also was great to spend time with her -- we don't see each other much since we both have retired. I got some knitting done during those two weeks, but not many preemie hats or other preemie things for the stash. I picked up yarn to make a couple of chemo hats for a friend and finished one, started a second, which is now finished and drying. I'll mail them out as soon as the second is dry. I also made good progress on the annual Red Scarf Project scarf. And for a quick knit, made a few catnip toys for the neighbor's cats, using the fresh catnip they grow. Started a pair of socks for myself but didn't get too far on those once I picked up the hat yarn -- that had priority. (photos on Ravelry sjanova) My non-knitting summer goals: revive some of my Spanish (reading Garbriel García Márquez in Spanish - improving more than I expected so far) and some of my piano (found some very beginner books that were in the music pile and bought some of the basic exercise books I used to use -- Hanon, especially - making decent progress there).

    Hello from Sunny Southern California! I haven't made anything for HAIN yet as I've been finishing some projects for other charities and now my granddaughter whose grandparents live in Oregon has requested that I make her another blanket to cuddle. I've made each of my 12 grandchildren blankies when they were born but this one is the blanket queen...3 very worn out blankets in 10 years and now she needs another - haha. I am still interested in HAIN....just haven't gotten to that particular project yet. Blessings on all of you.

    The party went great. The weather was warm but I'm glad I started the party at 3 pm or we will all be roasted. I had the umbrellas and tent opened up but it turned out nice. I made some homemade banners as my décor. I had the help of Pinterest with ideas. I made my own napkin holders that also had a small packet of salt and pepper. The banners were different inside the house and outside of the house. I had very little food left over and the cake was totally gone. In my eyes, it turned out good.

    Hey to All, I've been making a good dent in the yarn stash. Have a mix of wraps, a shirt, and a gown completed. Not sure what I'm in the mood to do next. I am in the middle of my summer break from teaching. I'll make a big push with crocheting for the next month. It is a much needed respite from the school year - I teach special ed. Might even take out my sewing machine for some quilting...

    I know the board can be confusing. But there is so much info and helps, stick with it. It will all make since and do not be afraid to ask questions. Betty congrats on being a winner!! I bet you had a wonderful time with grands. Children are such a blessing. Thank you for everything you do to help these little ones ♡ Joann congrats on being a winner! Good luck on sewing machine. Darn things. Hopefully it gets fixed soon for you. Cannot wait to see pictures of your hats you make!! ♡♡♡ I understand that one. I can be the same way. I go to post office and grab their flat rate boxes, have some on hand. Sometimes you can ship straight from your home. Flat rate so you know how much to have to ship. Our postal carrier can just take it with her. I am not sure if that is available in your area. You might look into it. Hassle free that way

Janie I miss you lady. I just miss you I hope you get the time you need. Love you
  13. I brought 3 knitted goodies to our family reunion and raised almost 100$ for the next reunion. Not to bad. So anyway I hope all if you had a great weekend. I can finally get back into HAIN knits. Though in between I have a pair of booties to make a family member for her boy due in September. But those do not take long so no problem there. I am kind of excited to get some purple hats knitted up for this challenge. Hats are my favorite! And for a good cause. Anyway good day here in Oregon. Weather is decent. Thank you all who have posted on roll call. Means allot to me. ♡s

    Hello all, Today I am going to my family reunion. I made a cute teddy bear to auction off to help pay for next years reunion. It will be a warm day out so hopefully the shade in the spot we have it at will be nice. Every year at the same time they have the "stand by me" celebration. The movie stand by me was filmed in the little town we have our reunion at. I remember when the movie was being made. My oldest uncle lived in that town during that time. Anyway so today I will be off, but wanted to give some loves to you all. Blessings Psst Pattern is from Claire Garland. You can purchase it on etsy or ravelry.

    Hi, I'm still here. I got a few blankets and hats done last month, but i haven't sent any out yet. Hopefully when i get the one i'm working on done, I will send them all. It seems to be my struggle. . . the sending. I have bags of finished projects that just need sent. Get on it Diana! I really don't know what my problem is. I hope everyone is doing well and Congratulations to the winners.

    Hi! Just printed off some newborn crochet hat patterns for the purple hat challenge. Will be away for a few days and that will be easy to tote along with me. I've been avoiding troubleshooting my sewing machine. LOL I will find time this weekend. Thank you again for the raffle prize! I received it in the mail yesterday ( Wednesday)

    Diana.... I'm in Pennsylvania and possibly this may be the closest for me also. I copied the address. I have six little purple (mauve, lavender, etc) hats finished so far and one on the needles. Plus yarn for some more after that. If you have another address for me that would be better, let me know. The patterns are cute and they go really fast. Thanks for your help. PegK

    Been keeping busy, Just sent out two cartons containing Memory Boxes on July 7th. One went to N.J. and the other IL. Currently working on the Memory Box that was requested by Jackie Krafka. Hopefully it will be finished this weekend after my grandkids go home, as they have been here visiting with us for the past week. I am also hoping I can figure out what is wrong with my cellphone as it won't let me download any of my pictures, so that's why I haven't been posting any. I also want to let Elaine know that I received my gift card and thank you note from her today..I never thought I would be one of the winners in the gift drawing contest. Quite a pleasant surprise.

    Hoping to retire soon so I can devote time to learning how this board works. I'm completely confused at this point, but received the email to check in.

    I am still here! I recently had to go back to work so have not had energy to do anything. However starting in August my hours will be reduced (my request) and am hoping to get back into all. Janie Waco, tx
  26. Hello anyone out there...

    I am right there with you about babies growing up fast. My little one is getting ready to go into middle school!!! I cannot believe it. they grow up so fast and I know the hugs will be less and less since that is not a "cool" thing to do in front of other kids his age. Well, I was stuck in traffic on my home from the beach vacation so I was crocheting. I finished a mini gown for a boy. I just need to put the ties and gather the bottom of the gown so it does not look like a dress for a boy. I'm working on a basic hat to go with it. I'm going to use that as one of my gowns on hand for emergency needs.

    I've got one preemie hat finished and another on the needles right now, unless the cat has somehow managed to break into the dresser drawer where I hid the knitting bag last night. He absolutely will not leave my knitting alone if I leave it in the family room where I prefer to knit, unless I remember to store it in the little table next to the couch that also has storage space with a latching door so it's basically cat-proof. On Monday I didn't feel like bending to put the bag inside the table, so I covered it with 3 pillows and the heavy notebook containing all my baby knitting patterns. The next morning I heard his famous "I've got something I'm not supposed to have" yowl (he repeats it in a rhythm), and not only did I find the hat on the bedroom floor with only 2 DPN's attached and a long trail of yarn leading to the kitchen, but he'd also dragged in 2 other skeins of yarn that were being kept in the knitting bag for the next project! By some miracle only 3 stitches were dropped, although I couldn't do anything but pick up that section of loose stitches right then. I decided to fix the problem last night, but this time I was in the bedroom, and when I was done I put the entire bag in an empty dresser drawer in the spare bedroom. Even if he knows it's there, I know he can't open that drawer (it doesn't have handles so it's also cat-proof like the storage table). And yes, I will wash everything before it comes to you.
