Charity Drive Update - Those Darn Happy Hookers!

They're gaining on us!

I checked the totals today and the Happy Hookers from Texas are at 264 points. So we still have a lead on them but we're not in the clear yet.

I'm at the fringe part of the blanket I was making which for some reason is the one part I always slack on. So as a break I started doing squares again. I'm at 5 squares for 40 points. If life doesn't keep getting in the way I'll start working on some more and mail them out after Thanksgiving. Hopefully we can still maintain our lead. :)

Crochet Snowflake Collection

by Kelly

The chilly wind is blowing autumn leaves against the window. It reminds me that winter is coming, when the wind will blow snowflakes and ice.

Donna makes beautiful crochet snowflakes. There are about a billion different free patterns online, which is appropriate, since in the real world no two snowflakes are alike. Snowcatcher is a must see site, if you love crochet snowflakes or beautiful photography.

I love the very bottom image, which is a design from Attic24. She used DK weight wool instead of thread and it makes the snowflakes look super soft and fluffy, like real snow.
