We had a wonderful, if delayed (due to weather) meeting in December. Thanks to everyone who showed up and participated in the gift exchange and brought yummy goodies to eat. Thanks also to all of you who voted for your new board. We are: Tamara Gonzales (left) president, Rosina Smith (right) vice president, and Cori Dodds (center) secretary/treasurer.
We also have made arrangements for a new meeting location, but it is still central to most everyone and only a few blocks from the senior center. Shelly at Twist has most graciously offered the use of her store and lounge area to us as a meeting location! We are so grateful to her and so excited! It is a lovely spot, well-lit, and with a marvelous stitching atmosphere. We will begin meeting at Twist for our January meeting.
Our own Bob Smith (no relation to Rosina) is seen here crocheting one of his famous strawberries. He has made 2025 of them over the past seven years. Many of us have been the beneficiary of his skill and have a strawberry or two hanging in our kitchens.
Finally, we have a couple of charity projects going. First, for local community organizations we are crocheting 9-inch squares for afghans. Linda made several of them, and they are marvelous. We have quite a large pile of 9-inch squares, and will be announcing a time to meet and join them soon.
We are also collecting 8-inch squares for the victims of the California wildfires. They do not need to be joined before we send them and I would like to have a nice-size stack to send off this month. So, dig into your stashes and throw together a couple of squares to bring to the January meeting.
We’ll see you at Twist on Jan. 21!
