HAPPILY HOOKED ON CROCHET CHAPTER AUGUST MEETING
Good Morning Everyone,
Finally finished the last project for the second new book.
Doing back to back books is really a challenge. I still have
some of the text to finish, but for the most part its done!
A few weeks ago, we had the August meeting of the Happily
Hooked on Crochet chapter of CGOA, and it was such a fun
meeting. I took lots of pictures, but have not had a chance to
blog until now.
Linda and Tom Diak were our featured guests, and in addition to
Tom's wonderful hooks and needles and their beautiful fleeces, Linda
gave us a tutorial on how to make a needle felted handle for steel
crochet hooks. I was reluctant to try, because I did not want to
hurt my hands, had too much work to finish, but under Linda's
direction, I did learn, and not one stab :-) to my fingers.
We had so many beautiful show and tell projects, I hope that I
get them all identified properly.
First photo is Linda and Tom beginning their presentation, second is Linda showing us how to begin the process of making our hook cover. More chemo caps made by Diane G (champion chemo cap maker) Rosalie H and Anna M. Diane
made items from my books and I was thrilled to see how lovely they turned out.
Diane Gil made this beautiful blanket and Anna M, working on my jacket, which
was featured on the cover of CROCHET! Looking great Anna. Celeste is so proud of her first Hairpin Lace project and rightly so, great job Celeste, its beautiful. Last, but by no means least, Irene completed a magnificent afghan for a gift. The picture does not do it justice as it is a work of art.
One of these days, I may have the time to learn to manage this new blog format. Ever since I had to change from my old blog, I feel lost in this new one. Need help, every one too busy.
Have a great day all
