Christmas gifts etc

Good Morning Everyone,

Its the day after Christmas, but today the rest of the family, that could not be here yesterday, will be here today.  So we are still celebrating.  Hurrah for Christmas and still no snow, because I have people traveling and worry about them driving in snow . 

I thought by now that my family  should have just about run out of crochet and knitting related gifts for me.  I was wrong.  I don't know where they find them, but they still manage to get little clever ornaments and gifts that I have not seen before.  My son promised me a new digital camera for Christmas, so I will be able to take pictures again soon (I hope). 

I have a book deadline looming, and on Jan 10th I leave for San Diego to attend the National Needlework Association trade show, so I will still be very busy for a little while.  I will be doing a book signing while at TNNA, so if any of you will be there, stop by and say hello.  I will be at the Creative Publishing Booth, but I do not know the booth number.

Have a great day

Crocheters Gotta Have Fun

Good Morning Everyone,

Sunday, The Happily Hooked on Crochet Chapter of CGOA, had their regular monthly meeting in Danbury, CT.  What a great meeting it was.  It started out with a lovely brunch, I did a workshop on Adjusting Patterns to Fit, we had lots of raffles and prizes and surprises.  After the workshop, designer and author, Doris Chan showed us garments from her great new book AMAZING LACE.  Using larger hooks and traditional patterns, Doris truly has turned out some amazing garments. 

So many people worked to make the meeting such a success, from providing the brunch, baking the luscious cake for dessert,  donating prizes for the raffle, etc, etc.  We all had a ball.

We are truly happily hooked on crochet!

Enjoy the day
