International Crochet Day

After school today, a friend and I headed over to the Sadu House to celebrate
International Crochet Day.
 There were many items on display made by a crochet group.
Blankets
 Toys and baby items.
 Clothes and accessories
 And the biggest ball of yarn and hook I ever did see.
 We sat and crocheted for awhile and visited with others who were doing the same.
All in all a lovely way to spend a couple of hours.
Happy crocheting!

Who knew????????? Well, YOU did and so did all those women who made such beautiful and creative items!

I will celebrate tonight by getting out the afghan that I have been working on and celebrate in my own quiet way.

Cute photo of you, btw!

Dearest Tammy,
WOW and again WOW, such a hook and BIG yarn I've never, ever seen!
What is that warning above your last photo: Be careful of your head...
That must be fun to get together with so many women and crochet a variety of pieces!

Fantastic to see International Crochet Day celebrated in a land so far away from here... and to think it all started in a little old apple tree on the Ranch up on Deadman Crick! I'm just flabbergasted! Thank you SO much for promoting the Day!

Happy International Crochet Day! I enjoyed looking through the pictures and the beautiful creations. I, too stopped to admire the chunky yarn because I have put it in my head to create a blanket with such but the day is yet to come :)

What a wonderful event! You know, the item I liked the best was the good old fashioned granny square blanket with all the different colors! Fun show! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

SusanLotus said...

WOW! All the creations are sooo lovely. Beautiful photos. And a nice "get-together".

When I tried to crochet it always ended up as a total disaster! No talent at all in that area.

I wish you a peaceful weekend!

:)
