Spring is Almost Here

The beautiful spring like weather brought a good crowd to work on their works in progress.

This delicious Chocolate Delight dessert not only looked good but tasted delicious. The crochet shamrocks added a special touch to the refreshment table. 

Rita continues to work on sewing the walker bags. She is still accepting fabric donations.

Rita finds a solution for everything including keeping up with her glasses.

Janet was seen wearing this beaded creation. She really impresses me with her intricate and detailed work.

Iola is a beginner crocheter and confessed that she knew her edges were not even. I reassured her that this is all part of the learning process and with practice and perseverance she will improve. My advice to her was to count stitches on every row and to be careful not to miss working a stitch on the turning chain.

One of the ladies I talked to told me about this fantastic kit she purchased at Ollie's. The kit includes yarn and numerous cards with projects for all different levels. She did say she thought she bought the last one.

Shelia finished this cotton cloth she found in one the Mason Dixon Knitting book and added the five petal crochet flower. Nice work!

…until we meet again may your creative genius continue to enrich your lives.
