Funny Business

Wendy shared the toddler scarf she was working on.
Lesa was all smiles.

Lots of creative ideas for scraps!

Everyone was in good spirits had had so many projects to share this month!
I expected maybe a project from some Christmas yarn?
Linda takes our breath away, yet again with another detailed and delicate center piece. Beautiful colors and wonderful work!

Cori learned to cable crochet – awesome!

Jackie worked on some hand sewn corsages.

Our group keeps growing – this will be an exciting year~

I think it was a toss up this month as to who made/finished the most projects.. Rosina was a definitely in the running.

Possibly only beaten by Tamara! Look at those crochet buttons!

I love to see how many different things everyone is working on and what stage they are in!
Sue was crocheting with ribbon!
OK, maybe Pam had the most, but some of it had been shipped before the evening meeting!
I show my plans for a wonderful doily I got as a door prize in November.. Started begging for more and Kelly so generously shared her door prize doily with me!

Cori got the prize for most stitches torn out and redone! Looks beautiful. Looking forward to more information on the crochet slippers class, Cori.

Linda brought her Tunisian crochet bead bracelet she made at the crochet-a-long. Lots of hard work and patience! Susie shares her green and white bag.

And here is where I will be you all to bear with me as I learn every one’s names!
I hope coming to both meetings will make me quick to learn.
We all need to remember those name tags are important for our visitors (and those of us with short attention spans)!
I love the felted slippers and the beaded bag. Linda is hiding again under her beaded shawl.

We’re all about the fun, the yarn, the food, and of course, the fashion! Love the sweater Donna! See you all next month for more funny business at Twist.

KS My Stitch Christmas Party 2009

Wow, I can’t believe another year has come and gone. The KS My Stitch Christmas Party was so much fun.

Thanks to Susie and

Jinna organizing the whole thing. Thank you to all that helped and made the party a success. I think everything was perfect and it was very relaxing for me to just sit back and enjoy myself as Jinna and Susie conducted the festivities.

The members started arriving with all of their white elephant gifts, door prizes, and dinner dishes. I do believe we could have fed 40 people with all the good food that everyone brought.

We had a brief meeting with the installation of officers and the new officers are from left to right:

Stephanie Macera (Secretary/Treasurer)
Tamara Gonzales (President)
Pam Everhart (Vice President)

Then we did a word search game with all crochet words in it of course.

Everyone was so generous with bringing door prizes and I think we had enough for everyone to win.

We also had a white elephant gift exchange and that’s where you could participate if you wanted to or not. The rules were to bring a gift related to crochet that you would like to receive yourself. The first person chooses a gift from the table and the next person could either take the gift from the first person or choose another gift. One gift could only be taken twice. It was a lot of fun and I do believe Sheri finally ended up with the very cute crochet hat.

We also revealed who our secret pals were and that was a lot of fun seeing all the creative things that people made for their secret pals.

Stay tuned for more information on the next meeting and welcome to the new year of KS My Stitch.
