Or all day crocheting, chatting and eating loads of goodies day! Yep, that sounds more like it.
|Some of the crew getting creative|
Last week a group of friends came around and we attempted to make some goodies to donate to the local hospital charity shop.
The ladies Auxiliary at the local hospital have a shop where they sell all kinds of lovely handmade creations to the public in an effort to raise funds to buy much needed equipment for the hospital. I thought it would be nice to lend a helping hand.
I have to say I was rather impressed with everyones efforts. Several of my helpers were beginners and they managed to produce at least two items each.
It was a fun day and there was talk of making this a regular event. Pictured above are some of the hats including a couple I had already made.
Here we have a joint effort - she made the hat - and he made the pom pom...he became quite proficient at pom pom making... a marvellous helper...
Having a try at crochet.....
A couple of headbands....... the pink one was made by an absolute beginner! What a great job she did. :-)
And these little lovelies were sent to me by a member of the Krista crochet group. They are simply adorable and I do think they will be a hit in the shop. My youngest daughter wanted to buy them all herself.
I am hoping to deliver these at the end of this week. There are a few more hats on the way from friends. All in all, it was a really fun day. I am sure we are all looking forward to the next one!
Hugs and love to all xoxoxox
