Stitchin' Meeting a time for sharing patterns & more

The ladies who come to the Mint Hill Stitch In not only share their patterns and crochet or knitting knowledge but also share about each others loved ones, favorite things to do, etc...Two of our ladies were doing just that by sharing photographs.

Everyone has been busy this summer working on a variety of projects. Santa's cross stitch is well under way and should be ready for Christmas. The lady who was working on this beautiful piece said I should not take a picture yet but I could not help myself. Santa will soon have his eyeballs stitched, I'm sure.

Christmas in July

It's hard to believe the hot days of summer will come to an end soon. July or any other month in Summer is the time when some crafters start to think about projects/gifts they would like to complete before the Holiday Season. Knitting projects do take time so it's not too early to start planning gifts. I have already completed two scarfs. I am in the middle of baby garter stitch cardigan.

The July Mint Hill Stitch In meeting's theme was Christmas. Shelia shared an adorable Knitted candy cane ornament with all the ladies. She said it can be made in an afternoon. This would be a perfect package decoration too.
