I know that most of y'all have heard me talk about another site called Crochet Soiree. We are having several Crochet-A-Longs with some great prizes, we had one in May and in June and the word is that we might have one in July, So if you are not a member of this group you really should think about coming and joining us. Naturally it is free and there are tons of free patterns, tons of videos, and trust me there is a lot of chatting and helping each other when we run into problems of some sort. The link to this site is included below and whenever you get the chance go by and check it out because it is a very friendly place.
Okay now on to my next subject. We have a very nice gentleman that works on the forum boards and helps us out when we don't know how to do something or when we can't find a pattern, Doug always very nicely tells us where everything is or fixes the problem for us. Well, long story short, ( too late, huh?), he just had twin girls on May 8th, and I couldn't decide what to make for them. Then I got sick and so on, and so on..... Finally I finished their little gifts today, they are two 2010 pennies, each inside a crocheted ruffled circle. Pennies as from "Pennies From Heaven" as in the song and of course twin girls are another sort of Heaven, plus 2010 since that is the year of their birth. That is what the photo is below, the color didn't come out quite right but at least my crocheting did. I will be mailing them off to him tomorrow but I just had to show everybody here first. Jay is going to write a little poem for me to enclose with it. I thought these would be cute little things to include with their baby book items and maybe they will cut the threads loose on their 18th birthday and will find an "old" penny inside. After all, an old penny is for Good Luck. 8>)
