FO Friday: Getting ready for the Craft Sale

FOfriday

Our Craft Group at St Georges Anglican Church in Newcastle, Ont, Cda, continues to raise funds for a wheelchair ramp into our hall that was built in 1856. This is the 3rd craft event our little group has done for this project. There are between 12 and 14 members in this group (with a combined age of 1050 yrs,) making a variety of things for the sale on June 8th.  This time we are trying something new, a Silent Auction, and a Craft Supply Table to sell odd balls of yarn, yardage and other notions.

Sassy Summer Satchel

Slightly modified this pattern, rather than sew the 2 wings together to finish, I k2tog as I did the last wing. I figured the base would be more sturdy.

Tomorrow I gift away my precious From Dusk Till Dawn Shawl

16" x  68"  One last fondle before I wrap it up to go to the wedding shower on Saturday. It goes to a good home. I wish my cousin the Bride, all the happiness in her marriage that I have had in mine.

    Good luck at the craft show. The Sassy Satchel looks fabulous put together. I’m also quite charmed by those teapot drip catchers. And what a lovely gift that shawl is – congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple 🙂

    The shawl is gorgeous. What a great idea – a silent auction of handcrafted items to raise funds…I think I will bring that up at my children’s school to finish off the fundraising for our wheelchair accessible playground equipment. It has taken us about 5 years but we are almost there.

    Hope you make lots of money. My daughter is in a wheelchair and those pesky chairs are hard to get up stairs, esp. if the person is heavy. Hope you make enough money to supply your church with one. You have lovely projects!

    I have to admit that I was the one that started the ball rolling with this Craft Sale business. Occasionally I have to use a wheelchair myself and I see how many people in our community are left out of coffee hour and other socializing opportunities because of accessibility issues. So often people who are lucky enough to be able to do stairs and uneven surfaces just don’t get it. So this is my make the world better thing. We are 1/2 way there.

    Look at all of those projects. How do you do it? I love that satchel. The colors and the style are very appealing. I hope the recipient adores the Dusk to Dawn shawl. It is stunning.

      I can only blush and say I get so much done because I’m a bag lady…I always have a project with me, and I can’t just sit and watch TV without something to work on. I also am involved with a bunch of enablers at The Carry along forum on Ravelry, Craft group and knitting club. I am a very, very lucky women, I have the most understanding family… they know if I am not making something and drinking coffee, I must be very ill and in need of a hospital ;0)
