June 2009


Missing Melissa emailed me that she has not been able to come to our CnC because of her bf change in shifts, but she is hoping to make it back soon.

She has sent a couple pictures of some recently finished projects and the last one is the one she is currently working on:

I’m wondering how long does it take to do some of this beautiful work?

I only took 3 pictures of some of the projects from that evening. 2 are completed and 1 is still being worked on.

Some of the ladies (at least one) helped Ocean with the beading on her dress.

We saw some of the beading before they were sewn on the dress. Notice she even did some beading for her hair and moccasins.

Lorene brought a blue version of this baby afghan. We had seen a red version of it at a previous meeting.

CanĀ  you guess what this adorable little critter is? He doesn’t have his loonnng arms yet. (That’s a clue.) Debbie is still working on him.

Another clue - orangu...

We had a couple of new members last night and can’t wait to see some of their other projects. It amazes me all the work that these ladies can do. Excuse me, we have had a couple of gentlemen come a time or too to learn a new stitch or two. It’s mostly ladies that come regularly. Thanks for the laughs and good times, I look forward to it every month.

Which one, it’s tough to decide. I’m leaning towards…..both! LOL

Wishful thinking, Janice can’t do both in one evening. Which one are you voting for?

WINNER – – Soft Stroller Blanket – Uses 4 -4 oz (186 yd) balls of yarn (3 colors) and Size I crochet hook

All Angles Afghan – Uses 6 balls of 3.5 oz (218 yd) of one color, 6 skeins of 7 oz (364 yd) of 3 other colors and a size J crochet hook

Here is where it would be nice to post links and/or patterns and pictures of different projects. I can’t wait to see what you will come up with.
