A group of my friends (that I rarely get to see much anymore) decided to get together so that the one of us who knows ALL KINDS of crafting and needleworking could show the rest of us how to crochet. We have known each other since we were all having babies and now our babies are having babies.
At first, we tried making holes for the crochet hook to go through the flannel with a nail (top right of picture). The holes close up pretty quickly that way. It was slow going punching a few holes then trying to learn to crochet through them. I gave up on that way and started just sewing a blanket stitch with a yarn needle (that maybe someday I will go back and finish off with a crochet trim).
G. prepared homemade pesto to put on bread, chicken salad, and a fruit salad...SO GOOD.
We meet at B.'s lovely home. I thought you might like to see a mini "tour of home".
At one time she had a table here but is trying the foyer without one for now.
