Textile Meeting

There were 5 of us at the Textile meeting Wednesday night, hosted by one of our members. We gathered around the dining table with all our supplies and sustenance for the evening.

Our task was to test a crochet pattern that will possibly be used to make and donate afghans to patients of the senior citizen home.

Since the 4 other ladies are all knitters, I was the only one who actually finished a square ... and learned a different way to do a granny.

The wise learn from the experience of others, and the creative know how to make a crumb of experience go a long way. (Eric Hoffer)

At the beginning of each meeting, we have show-n-tell for projects we've been working on at home. I showed them my mini stockings and a couple of the ladies showed off the cutest and funniest knitted items I've ever seen.

How about sausage, fries, egg and a slice of bacon for breakfast? Don't forget the peas.

Or if you are more health conscious, how about an apple or a pear?

Accessories for Christmas.

Frosty the Snowman.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Angels we have heard on high.

These pretty flowers will bloom in your home all year round.

It was a fun couple of hours of creative companionship.

Happy December everyone!

I thought the egg, sausage and chips were cat play toys at first, if you added a bit of cat nip I'm sure Jingle would love these.

Look at all the fun stuff you gals made. What a great event. I sure wish I had some friend like that in my neighborhood. Most don't get me So, nice to see you are getting those grannies. If I remember correctly you were a little scared of them before. Can't wait to see what you create now that you have them done.

LDH said...

Wow... look at all of those beautiful creations! Love them all and such a great get-together.

Dearest Tammy,

That looks incredible! To be around with kindred spirits that love working with needle(s) as much as you do is great therapy. Fun projects they produced!
Love to you,

LOVE the pear! It's adorable! Well, the bacon makes me laugh, too!
What a fun day you had with tons of creativity and friends.
Are there patterns for these little things?

Looks like all of you had a produtive evening! So nice that you and your friends will be making some afghans donated for the elderly folk. Cute things they've been doing.

Your blog is very pretty! Love the music too! You know, a few of us from flickr know another lady that crochets and lives in Kuwait. Her name is Salma. Maybe you two could get together sometime! We want to know if you do. Take some photos :'}

It looks like a fun little get together .... I always love the chatter around the table when I go to my quilting group .... Fun knitted things - those would be great toys for toddlers :)

Hi Tammy, fabulous! how nice is what they do, because you have a good time besides while performing their manual labor for a common purpose, and is to donate them to people who are filled with these details! Congratulations! His works have been super cute! greetings, Rose M

What a talented group of fiber artist you five are. Love the breakfast. Some little girl would love those for her little kitchen (or I would have when I was a child).

Diane said...

These are really cute things, besides that I'm sure it's just fun being with other people with the same type interests. I like the little mushroom. Blessings, Diane

What a nice and creative way to spend your evening. I'm sure those seniors will enjoy the cozy afghans that you will make. What a wonderful way to spread some holiday cheer....even though they don't celebrate Xmas.

What a fun meeting that turned out to be!! I am sure it was a bunch of fun to see what other creative minds can do. I went to stitch group last week for the first time since coming back to Doha from summer vacation. There are a few ladies there who quilt, and their projects are amazing. I wish I had the patience, but I know that will never be the case with me.
Your granny square is perfect. Really nice!!!!
