Stitching Sisters news — Jan. 2015

We had a very nice knit-crochet gathering on Tuesday, December 30. Maureen was the hostess and made the most wonderful raspberry scones with white chocolate. We welcomed Shawna F. to our group. And we were very happy to have Torie B. with us while she is on college break. There were five of us present.

Since our last meeting, we have given a prayer shawl to Tracy G. and also, to Ginger L.’s friend in TOPS.

We want to give a great big thank you to Ele B. who hosted our Christmas picnic on December 8. Her Buche de Noel was such a delicious memory. And Pastor Mitch, Shannon and Sara came by to say hello. We had an ornament exchange and played 5 rounds of bingo. Thanks Kim for providing the prizes for bingo.

We all agreed that Tuesday afternoons can work for us in the new year. I passed around a “hostess” signup sheet for winter/spring. I will cover January 13 and Maureen H. signed up for January 27. We will get the remaining dates at the next knit-crochet.

We want to thank Shawnna and Gloria M. for babysitting sweet Sara on our mid-holiday gathering.

The upcoming dates are: January 13, January 27, February 10, February 24, March 10, March 24, April 14, April 28, May 12, and May 26. I will get these posted at the church.

Greetings Stitching Sisters, hope everyone voted today…

First, I would like to remind everyone that our next regular knit-crochet gathering is this Monday, November 10, noon to 3 pm. Andie S. will serve as host. Hope everyone can make it. We will meet back in the Disciples’ Den. Let me know if you need a ride.

At our last meeting on October 27, we made a huge assortment of scarves and hats for the Good Sam Food Pantry patrons thanks to a generous donation from Thrivent. We completed 80 scarves and 20 hats and more are being completed in members’ homes. This will mean we may have some for the WARM residents in February. I was hostess but we were blessed with some lovely, delicious, home-baked treats from Sunday’s fellowship. I did work up and passed out some Easy Crochet Ripple stitch patterns.

We have provided 23 prayer shawls to date. Ginger L. made one for a friend in TOPS and I one for a friend who has peripheral nerve disorder. Just a couple of months ago, we sent a prayer shawl to Dana, St. Mary’s Caring Soup Kitchen director, who sadly passed away over the weekend.

See you on Monday.

Peace, Edna
