Yes, I know I am a little late with this posting but wanted to make sure those of you that could not make the October meeting could see some of the wonderful Show n Tell we had.

Since I have had several requests about when is what. Here they are for the 2013 year: (All meetings are the 3rd Monday of the month except December)

February – Organize your space – Homework assignment for the year is to organize some craft space and bring in pictures of before and after.

March – Bring Your Own Project – anything you can work on while talking and laughing with the others.

April – Crab Crochet Stitch – (this picture is from www.how-to-crochet-instructions.com) – just bring some yarn and a crochet hook (light color yarn is usually easier to learn a new stitch with).

May – Knooking – (I bought my kit from Hobby Lobby, I will post on the monthly meeting if we find somewhere else to at least get the hooks from) – it’s crocheting that looks like knitting

June – Locker Hooking – you can use the same type of hook that you use for Knooking

July – Bring Your Own Project – anything you can work on while talking and laughing with the others.

August – Edging – various techniques by a few of our wonderful and talented ladies

September – Bring Your Own Project – anything you can work on while talking and laughing with the others.

October – Loom Knitting – They are big plastic round and rectangle shapes with those posts on them to hold the yarn

November – Bring Your Own Project – anything you can work on while talking and laughing with the others.

December – meet the 2nd Monday of the month (December 9th, 2013) – White Elephant trade – Bring anything crafty you already own that you know you are not going to use. We have had open craft kits, craft books, leftover and unused skeins of yarn and much more over the years.

A few members missed the meeting because we move the December meeting a week earlier then our normal 3rd Monday meeting. But for the 15 that were able to come, the white elephant trade was amazing. I am always surprised with what you ladies have brought. I was able to get some wonderful items to add to my home. Apparently homemade items are getting very popular. Trying to get supplies to complete my Christmas presents this year has become challenging. Even trying to order online, I found lots of backordered items. Here is just a sampling of what the ladies have been working on to get ready for Christmas, oh, I finally got the leaves put on the strawberry hat that every saw from our Crocodile stitch class:

We had several more ladies learn the Crocodile stitch so I have posted the strawberry hat that I made for my youngest granddaughter. I look forward to seeing what the ladies will make with that crochet stitch in the new year. We discussed a wide range of classes for 2013 but you will have to wait a bit until I get them posted. They sound like lots of fun.
