As our new building gets closer and closer to completion, the excitement is thick. It is also keeping staff very busy, keeping the current library running and handling all the details of the new building. Many staff have hobbies of various types including handwork. The items below are from the January and February and are current projects working on as well as a few completed items. Some are from the crochet planned pooling class that we had in January.

This past year and this year are pretty busy. I am behind in everything work related, including this blog. Since the contract has been awarded for the new building and construction is beginning this month, I am hoping I can play catch up. To start the new year I thought I would post all the Show n Tell pictures that have been taken over several months this past fall and late summer meetings.

It amazes me all the variety of homemade items. Yes, including the banjo, baby doll purse (you have to look for the purse when it is open), so many to mention. Below are several items that have two pictures about them. Enjoy

 

 

 

I know I have been asked where some of our Show n Tell are. Here are the last two months:

The benefit of having two months of pictures is you will see a pink hat in the making one month and finished the next month. You also see the beginning on my variegated tunisian crochet above.  I am working on a sailboat in the tone-on-tone washcloths similar to the rocking horse and house above. Wondering what all of you are working on????

We had our meeting last night and everyone was working on a different type of project. Crochet, plastic canvas, quilting, drawing and hairpin lace. Though I did not do much hairpin lacing during the meeting and did not take a picture of what I was working on.

This first group of pictures are from 2014

We have some wonderful examples of Mosaic Knitting make by one of our members who went around and helped everyone with tips and tricks on how to do it. Thanks Lorene
