December Dinner - We will have a potluck dinner at my house on December 15. This is what I remember people saying they would bring. Please let me know what you plan to bring.
Claire - meat
Rachael - Cous cous
Sherry J. - Salad
Amy S. - Dessert - tart
That is all I remember - also in order for faster clean-up, maybe someone can bring nice paper/plastic plates, etc. There will be more information on this as the time gets closer. I would love for everyone that is receiving this message to try to come. If you donated money, we would love to thank you and have you meet the ladies that made all of the blankets, and if you made blankets, we would love for you to meet the donors. If you are not usually able to make evening meetings, please try to make this a priority so that everyone can meet everyone involved.
January Book Selection - Secret Daughter - more information will be posted on website under Book Club Blog
As far as future book selections go for the book club, since nothing was decided perhaps someone else needs to offer a plan.
If you brought something Thursday evening, please send me your recipes. We had great food at the meeting. Everyone is asking for them and I have started a web page for recipes. So far, Cheri is the only one that sent hers in.
The Project Linus meeting that we attend on a Thursday morning is full for the moment. We will not be able to bring any more than the 6 people that came last time. If there are more people that would like to help out, or if these people want to help out on another day, I am willing to have a morning meeting at my house once a month. I am only willing to do this if I have a committed group of people that will attend each month. It is a great way to give them some extra help and to get together a little more often. We have several people that have difficulty attending our Thursday evening meetings. Please let me know if you are interested. I would be thinking about starting it in February 2012.
We have a great new page on the website called Crochet Borders. I have taken photos of the ones I know and will try to write directions that make sense. If you have any others you would like to share, please send me photos and directions. Everyone seems to love learning something new and Project Linus loved the fact that our blankets had nice, creative borders. It sets us apart from the standard fleece blanket.
Please make sure that you know how to make the correct foundation stitch on the blanket (the one that goes in the holes) before you go on to the borders. If you have questions, or are not sure, please ask me or anyone in the group. Everyone is happy to help, and it is SO EASY to do. We really want to turn in a quality product.
I think that is it for now. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Week. Thanks so much for all of your help. Claire
