Not all recipients of our gift giving are into clothes, or cuddlies. Some of them may be into objet d’art!

CLF member bizzielizzie made this gorgeous piece using her free form skills!

It’s amazing what we can do as crocheters with found objects, and scrap yarn! Pull out your stitch dictionary and play!! Pretty bobbles, stitch markers (especially those pretty ones made for the other needle art!) and buttons make great embellishments in our work!

This is definately an idea for those hard to buy for folks on our holiday gift giving list!

CLF Certified World's Most Humongous Hook
Me (Fearless Leader) hugging on our Big Man about Town “Dippy the Wonder Hook”…

It’s hard to resist that big hook’s charm! All 4+ feet and 28lbs of hook! And yes we were able to use him!

It was great to watch our beloved Jimbo watch his baby be fondled by all and sundry!
(We also got to hang out with his lovely family, and gosh Karol is a keeper!)
International Fiber Artist Rockpool Candy,  got the partay started and set up the most fabulous “warp” for the web, upon which we anchored crochet chains!
Still more room to play with on the web! Could use even more people at the event today from 12noon through 4pm!
Be there or be…well not cool
