On the Needle

I completed my goal of creating
31 hats in the 31 days of August
for a shelter in West Viriginia.
Thank goodness a fellow crocheter
posted a fast and simple pattern
on Ravelry that I could use.
Now...back to the
ongoing, never finished scarf!
What's on the needle at your House?

Chair #2...before and after

My resourceful Husband
figured out how to fix the seat,
so Chair #2 is done too.

I'm happy with how this chair
turned out. It will
most likely be the new office chair!

Before and After...Chair #1

This is the chair from my teen years.
Use to sit at a desk, painted the same blue,
I have a metal chair that has
also been painted black,
but I am having trouble with the seat.
Onto the next project...

Stash Report-July

I missed posting at the end of July
for my monthly stash report....


Fabric in for July: 0 yards
Fabric in YTD: 0 yards

Fabric used in July: 2 yards
Fabric used YTD: 64.5

I have been finishing quilts
and other fabric projects for others,
so I can't count it towards stash busting.

Hopefully in August I will be
finishing more of my own quilts.

How are you doing?

On the Needle

I am taking a break from knitting
right now to concentrate on
crocheting hats.

I am much quicker at crocheting
then knitting, which comes in handy
with my current project:
a new hat every day of August.

The online charity Outreach to Appalachia 
runs shelters in West Virginia that give out
hats during the cold weather months.

On average, the shelter goes through
approximately 100 hats per month
(mostly men's hats)

I'm a member of the group through
where we are celebrating our groups
one year anniversary.

Hence, the goal of one hat per day
for our group anniversary month!

What's on the Needle

Yes...I am still doing that
silly scarf for 4 weeks now,
so I thought I would show you
a finished crochet project.

I have been crocheting hats
for a shelter in West Virginia.

They work up fast and are really
thick and soft.

What are you working on?
