August - September - Make a new friend

Include any items that you want, but send at least one item to a person you have never talked to before and include a hand written note. Of course, you can still send to members that you do know.


Send all your info (C'Ville name, real name, street address (plus zip codes), email :compute  address and Ravelry ID to me (Terri/LadySorce) in either a PM or to my email address = LadySorce at yahoo dot com.


Remember to always have fun.


Your list should only have 10 items on it.


ALWAYS thank you Fairy GodMother in the thank you list

DO NOT say their real name (even if you do know them), we still like to guess at them :yes 


I'm sure there is more that I need to put here, but I've only had one cup of coffee so far..LOL :mug  :morcoffee 


I do try to keep a list of who sent/gifted whom what.

I too, would love to make a new friend!  :hug



  1. Donate a crochet item to a charity of your choice, any item, big or small
  2. Notecards or any pretty stationery
  3. Any hand made item by you, in any craft - beautiful scarf and squares received, thank you MO FGM! And a beautiful bookmark from a PA FGM, Thank you! Beautiful cushion cover, owl charm and a broom dolly from a FGM in Poland, Thank you!
  4. All yarn, even if it isn’t a full skein, will be greatly appreciated. I use chunky yarn to make beds/mats for animal shelters, and 4-ply or DK for baby charity items, but any yarn you’d like to gift will be put to good use 
  5. I have recently discovered a love for bamboo/wooden crochet hooks, but only have them in sizes 3mm, 4mm and 5mm, so any other sizes would be lovely
  6. I've just discovered cross stitch! So any cross stitch items would be wonderful, patterns, aida, thread, anything!
  7. Scented dried petals or buds, like potpourri
  8. I have a bit of an addiction to socks – I don’t know why!! Bought or made, any will be loved (I’m UK shoe size 5, which I think is a US 7.5)
  9. Any crochet books, I love books! A second-hand one you no longer want, or second hand on somewhere like Amazon, is just as welcome as a new one - 2 Lovely dischcloth pattern books received, thank you PA FGM! 
  10. Hot chocolate – sachets are fine, or if anyone can get the Milo drink I’d love you forever! 


Please be warned I live in the UK, so postage costs may be higher unless sending something direct from online


Love and friendship to you all  :manyheart

I really enjoyed this one last year! It was great getting to know a few of you better.

1. Most of all I look forward to a letter telling me about yourself.

2. I enjoy postcards from places you have traveled or from where you live. There are so many places I will never get to see.

3. Small things to set on my window ledges or to hang from the latches. I change them out for all the holidays and seasons
including Halloween.

4. I tend to accumulate snow people, pumpkins, and bees but am not picky. I enjoy fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving things.

5. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/turkey-pilgrim-scrubbie-crochet-pattern   Thank you FGM

I love to grant wishes and I love making new friends.

1. I just started making baby blankets for my local hospital St. Mary's Medical (Langhorne, Pa) and I took the first batch up in July. I told her I would be bringing as many as I could every month. My next delivery will be on Aug 26th and I have three made so far. What I did not know until I receive the thank you note was the blankets are being used in the Neonatal unit (she sent a picture of my blanket on a baby bed), so now I have the help of my sister. I really hope I can continue doing this every month. She told me that they did not have any blankets and were also in need of regular newborn hats. So my wish is to ask is anyone would like to help me out, you are more then welcome to send a baby blanket or hats to go with my blankets for the month. I do not want to take away from the ville member that collects for the neonatal unit in Calif.

2. With all of the things going on in my life right now, I think I would love to have a pen-pal or email pal to write to. I promise I will write back.

3. Anything made by you. I treasure all of my crochetville families handmade pieces.

4. This pattern from http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/teddy-bear-huggy-blanket.- rec from a friend in NY

5. If you have ILTY that you don't want anymore, I would be more that happy to take it from you.

6. note cards or stationary.

7. any baby afghan books or old crochet magazines you may not want anymore.

Make new friends and I will be looking to grant wishes on this list. Happy August and September
