I am thinking of joining to as I don't have a local group to join. I am about to get started making some toys for a local Church sale to raise money for their school and other projects. I think I am going to start with dinos as they tend to be popular.

I finished 10 hats this month. I think that's the most crocheting I've done in a while.

So here are the mats I finished (save tucking in the ends). I have a 4th one that is about 3/4 done as well. As you can see, someone gave me a LOT of red yarn, so these are bright!

I happen to have the day off and called my mom to see if she had anything she wanted to do. Before I could finish asking she blurted out that she wanted to see Harry Potter again, so I am off to the movies!

3 Cat Mats for me this month

Denise, those are beautiful. I'm sure the kitties won't mind a bit.

Welcome to the group to both of you. :welcome We spend 6 days a month specifically doing things for charity, but many of us work on those types of projects at other times, too.

 

I'm finishing up the preemie hat that goes with the preemie afghan I made. I just couldn't get it started last night. Too tired I guess. Then I'll post my pictures.

 

1 preemie afghan and matching preemie hat

1 prayer shawl

Here are the pictures of my work for this month. First is the preemie afghan and the preemie hat is off to the right side by our puppy Trouble who was trying hard to get into the picture. Next is the Uglee Doll done with variegated yarn. Finally is the prayer shawl where Trouble made it all the way into the picture.

Didn't get to send out grannies daughters or the 3baby hats and one granny square I had. We had car trouble but all is well. A friends helped us and car is fine now. Will be sending them out Monday. If nothing else prevents me.
