SURPRISE MEETING IN STOUFFVILLE.

At our monthly meeting at the Canadian Legion, this passed Sunday, Stouffville mayor Justin Altmann and his friend Ron Dougald took the time to join us showing a genuine interest in what each of us were knitting and crocheting for the many charities that casting off the cold donates to.  Mr. Altmann kindly offered to advertise at the town hall hoping to attract other crafters that share our interest and desire to give back.  



In the photos you can see that they are having a grant time with the group and the mayor trying his hand at knitting. I hope he does not drop a stitch with all the fun they are having.

This blanket is from Beth and I love the colours she used for the pattern

Here is another one of Beth's a beautiful pink baby blanket.

Here Beth used the seed stitch for this blanket. It turned out great!

Another one of Beth's. The cute jacket and hat,

Some chemo hat also from Beth.

Here are a few baby items from Kathy, this beautiful jacket,

WOW this one is adorable!!!

Hat and scarf sets also from Kathy.

I finally finished Eeyore for my great nephew in Winnipeg. It took me a few months to do this blanket. I hope he is going to like it.

I never thought that I will ever make a blanket with these colours, but I did, because some ask me to make it for her. So I am eating my words. If you have colours that you don't think you would like together, try it, it may look good after all.
I would like to thank you all for your support and talent for all these years, making a difference in York Region. Happy crafting.
