To Do List

Well here goes ... I figure if I write it down it will get done (not really but sounds good).My WIPs include several afghans, a couple lapghans and several hats... my mattra for the week must complete a wip for each new thing I do... (now to stick to it)lol... things to do... Angel doll for the Caring Crafters Angel Exchange, an angel pillow done in tunisisan crochet a new bag for craft projects and a loomed shawl. Still need to try out the knitted letter blocks on the loom goal 1 just to see how they turn out... This weekend I have to decide on a new loom... DA have some great ones thinking maybe a sgsock loom... but then again I really want to do some dishcloths so maybe that ...decisions decisions... I only have a couple days left with my 14 yr old "Goose" befor she goes to Florida to stay with friends for the summer so will spend little time crafting except while she is on the computer... this leaves my 13 yr old "Butterball" and to craft our hearts out. Currently she is making neonatal hats and bootie sets. HEr goal is 25 sets befor school starts... great to see her willingness to participate and help others.

Today...

I am very fortunate to be a member of a wonderful group called Caring Crocheters. I came to learn of the group thru a post by the groups owner Sandra when she posted on our local Freecycle asking for donations of yarn and craft supplies also any crafter looking to donate items to charities.Well always beeing up for a challenge I answered and then we swapped phone numbers then the rest is history... after meeting at a local mall we spent 6 hours chatting and felt as if we had known each other forever. It didnt take long befor she had arranged with several other local Caring Crocheters and a small local group was formed we have met several times and just cant get enough of one anothers company and have soooo much fun... We exchange ideas and thoughts and just share in one anothers love of crafting.Today several of us met to take a ton of stuff to the local hospice.It is tremendous to see the wonderful things that the people in this group have so lovingly created and donated. After meeting we went to Sharons house and had a chance to admire all of her lovely loomed creations.Her sister Patty is a recent loom convert and is quite the hat designer.This has been the first time we have gathered and Sandra hasnt been there she was sick and I would later find out that she has Pheumonia.Just so she understands that next time we get together she needs to share twice as many idea and crafts... we dont want her slacking off...lol... I am including the link to the group take a minute and stop by feel free to join if it is something you might like just make sure to tell them that Stella sent you!!!! http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CaringCrocheters
