  1. Thanks so much, Lynn.
  2. I'm extending my wishes anyway, Natalka, for no more bad news for your family, extended or's always sad to hear of loved ones going through such difficult times. I hope things do turn around and everyone remains healthy.
  3. Aw, such a shame you missed it this time...I wondered why so many gals are so very on top of the ball, yet missed out on it. I guess I was just lucky this time.
    Hope your weather continues on the up-side; we have miserable cold and windy weather, but thank goodness no more snow has been added to what's still sitting on the ground!
    Take care, Toots!!
  4. Thanks for the recent rep; Happy Family Day!
  5. Hoping things went well for you yesterday!

  6. Hoping you are doing okay....
  7. I know this is early, but thought I had better share it with you when I came across it

  8. Thank you, Natalka....I just wish the surgery was over and...well...that rehab was over, too!!
    Have a lovely evening, Nat...
  9. SO true, lol...have a blessed Sunday, Nat!!
  10. I have three cabbages waiting to be done, too - might do them tomorrow.
  11. DH has one cabbage done already...fingers crossed this works, it's soooo much easier than our traditional method! Thanks again, Nat!
  12. Thanks, Nat! I knew you would have a solution for helping me avoid that boiling method!
    I just told my Hubby your idea, so we're doing that today!
  13. Lynn, I don't totally boil them til done. I just cut away the core, blanch the head in a pot, then as soon as the leaves start to come away, I take each off. Then I pile them in bags and freeze them, and then when thawed they are soft enough to roll.
    I have heard of people just putting the whole head in the freezer, but I have never tried that - have read online there are varying results with doing it that way.
  14. Natalka, I want to make cabbage rolls for Thanksgiving, but I know I can't stand at the stove boiling those cabbages. I think you mentioned once about freezing them, and when they thaw they're softer...was that you? Have you tried it that way? Will I be forced to stand over a boiling pot of water?!!

    Hope all's well in your corner of the world, my Friend!

  15. Hope you have a great year ahead!
  16. Thanks so much for the rep; Happy Autumn!
  17. Your rep quote? Truer words were never written!! I hope you're feeling better today, Nat, but keep a close eye on things and head back to your doctor if it's not getting any better. {{{Hugs}}}
  18. Amplitude is usually the breadth or range of something.
    So in gymnastics, it's when the person does something out of the normal of something - when the skill is done better; usually it would be with height. If the height or degree of execution is better, the more the amplitude and it would be a higher score.

    Hope you are feeling better!
  19. Nat, the commentators keep referring to the "amplitude" of the jumps in gymnastics...I'm not understanding how they're using it, in that context. ie: when a floor-exercise athlete jumps, or someone flies upward on the high-bar, "amplitude" is used...having trouble with that word. Is is being used correctly? This stumps me.
  20. Thank you, Natalka. Never would I have believed his passing would be so sudden, so unexpected; he fought for so many years, I feel he was just tired of the battles. He was my only sibling....
  21. Unfortunately, it's my hands and arms that prevent me from doing any crafting, and any needlework. I have things put away for him, though.
  22. Nat, although I doubt there's more than a half dozen crafts my late BFF and I haven't tackled, I've never, ever done a felt ornament! I imagine the ones you once did were gorgeous, knowing your love of detaiil.....perhaps it's time to renew your love of that craft for your son's 'hope chest"? He'd absolutely treasure them!!
  23. So glad you went back and got the purse!
    Those Christmas orns are so cute - over the years, I've made and embroidered lots of felt ones; I really, really miss doing crafting!
  24. Hi, Natalka! 'Tis the season, evidently, with my latest email from Better Homes and Gardens: Christmas ornaments and gifts!!
    Naturally I had to browse through them, and came across this: how cute!!
    Just passing it along for a little seasonal inspiration, Hon...

    Now that I look at it again, I think I'll make a bunch of these with various "dress" patterns and use them on Christmas gifts this year!! the mittens ones for Grandson...maybe I'll vary them on each gift. But I know for sure my DD will be getting the dolly one!
