Happily Hooked on Crochet JuLY Meeting


Yesterday was the July meeting
of the Happily Hooked on Crochet
chapter of CGOA.  We meet in Danbury, CT
at Danbury Hospital in one of their
community rooms, on the second
Sunday of each month.  Usually
 attendance is low during the summer
months, but yesterday we had a busy day.
 Four new members joined us,
that is so terrific.  Our numbers are growing
by leaps and bounds. 

We had a fun day of exchanging ideas and
show and tell.  Another of our members,
 Elaine, taught how to bead crochet.

Nancy, who joined a few months ago,
is one of the most prolific crocheters
that I have ever met.
In addition  to making things for her family,
she is constantly making so many things
for charity.

Her most recent contribution is 3 sets for
preemies, that consist of blankets, booties
and hats.  The picture above does not do
them justice, they are really beautiful.

The first picture is Grace, our president,
greeting the four new members, the second
is Nancy modeling a sweater that she made
for her husband.  The 3rd,  4th and 5th photo,
Nancy again with a dress, top and the preemie
sets.  The 6th is a picture of everyone busy
working on their "stuff"

I'm off to teach this morning, have a great day!
