A place to write about my crocheting, things I'm learning, book reviews, ideas, projects in mind, works in progress, patterns, photos, fair entries, whatever...

Library display - National Crochet Month

Yesterday some members of the CGOA Chapter met at the East Shore Library to put together a display for National Crochet Month. Our theme was Crochet Books, how appropriate for a library display. We started with displaying some favorite books, and projects that members had made from the books. Some of the books and projects were 52 Tunisian Crochet Stitches Combine to Make An Afghan Stitch Sampler, Dolores Franks; and 101 Easy Tunisian Stitches, Carolyn Christmas and Dorris Brooks. With this was my Tunisian sampler baby afghan. Along with the book 24-Hour Crochet Projects, by Rita Weiss, was "Must Have Blouse"; and with Fancy Hawaiian Lei in Crochet by Roberta Wong, was a beautiful red & yellow lei made by Faith. From the Better Homes and Gardens book Forever Favorite Crochet, was a 5-Sided Pineapple Doily; and a baby dress and booties were displayed with the book Sunday's Best for Baby by Patricia Nassars. Also display were crocheted thread hearts made by Faith, a thread angel made by Crystal, and napkins with thread edgings crocheted by Shelby.

I hope everyone in the Harrisburg, PA area stops by to see our great display.
