Catching Up

I know, I know! I haven't been very good at keeping my blog up this last part of the year. Since our move in Sept, things have seemed just slightly out of sync. But, I'm going to try to catch you up on the end of 2007 in the next couple of posts
First, we'll start with our crochet guild. Men Who Crochet chapter of the CCGOA.
Our first guild meeting was in May last year, and we decided right off that we wanted to do something to pay back the Telegraph Community Center for providing space for our meetings. So, we decided to make afghans for the Center to distribute come the holidays. We are a very small chapter, with only 4 or 5 who come regularly, and another 6 or 7 who attend the quarterly Crochet Soirees.
We started making 12" squares for these afghans. We made enough squares to assemble 2 complete afghans with a few left over for 2008. But--the members also donated about 12 more afghans and 1 quilt from their personal closets.
Since the only time all these were in the same place at the same time was the day of our presentation at the Community Center, I tried to quickly take pics of the items before they were donated. To see them, check my Photos to the right and click on Community Center Afghans 2007.
Since Peter is a volunteer at the Center, he was there the day they were distributed, and he said there were a lot of big smiles from the people who received them. Good! That's what we wanted.
