    Hey Yíall Iím Finally Back! YAYYYYY!!!

    Hey yíall Iím finally back! Itís been a long time and Iíve had so much going on in my life. Last year I had the opportunity to retire early at 54 and I jumped at the chance. Iíd worked over 26 years as a government civilian federal employee for the Army and Navy. I moved from Huntsville, Alabama to South Carolina to be near my family. I started a new job in August 2019 and now Iím working for a large medical practice in Greer, South Carolina. Itís a wonderful place to work and Iím so blessed to work there.

    Even though I havenít been very active on these boards, I never stoped crocheting most every day. Itís still my passion! Iím looking forward to reconnecting with my old friends here and getting to know everyone else!!

    Shelley

    Hi Shelley,
    I've been crocheting a lot of unicorn hats and I'm working on a hat that's not a unicorn and a have another hat to do that's not a unicorn and I have a unicorn hat to finish and I might have another unicorn hat to do. What are you making these days?

    Hey Jean Marie,

    Iíve been making mostly big throws and afghans. Last summer I made a ton of what are called ďskinny scarves.Ē Theyíre more narrow and longer. Iím glad youíre enjoying making unicorn hats! Theyíre so popular now.

    Itís nice hearing from you and I hope youíre doing well.

    Shelley
