Umbrellas Up!
(I mean)


Well, Sunday was a Success! OK A WET Success!

Did you see our rendition of Singing in the Rain! No? Oh well, you missed our Academy Award winning performance!
(I hope we never have to do that again!)

What a Fun Day! YES! We did have turn out! It was very hard to crochet or knit while holding an umbrella, but, some of us found a way! The Goody Bags were a hit especially to our 2 younger crocheters Matt and Arielle, they were tickled that there was yarn & a crochet hook!

What a Year for Crochet! 2009 brought us the Most Beautiful Designs from Scarves to Clothing, New Stitches, and the Most Wonderful Yarns and Fibers one could image!

Lois and I went to the CGOA 2009 conference, where we met Andrea. It was exciting for both as it was their first conference.
Well, what happened next????

We founded the CCGLI and in September became an official CGOA Chapter! 
Since September as a group we have done quite a bit of Charity work, 77 scarves and hats for the 60/60 Challenge. The Chapter wants to thank the following ladies for their involvement and hard work; Lois, Regina, Melissa, Joan and Andrea who not only took part in the CCGLI Chapter challenge but she donated to the HHC Chapter Challenge as well. As a Chapter we also Assisted at Stitches East teaching Crocheting & Knitting, Now that was FUN!!.  Can we go again next Year??? Pleasssee...
