What another amazing GOG working bee! 🤩 On a beautiful Spring afternoon it was lovely to see so many people (including some new members) come along and spend an afternoon of creating, learning, sharing, cake (yes we had cake this time … thanks Amanda😍) and, more than just a bit of laughter … we were even able to open the doors and ‘overflow’ into the courtyard. Special thanks too, to those who made the effort to pop in to drop off their Goodies. 💕
If we thought the last working bee saw a mountain of Goodies, then this was an even BIGGER mountain! There is so much love and creativity in all the Goodies created that it is an absolute delight to be able to pass them on to the hospital. The generosity and skills of our growing group is mind blowing! 😍
It was so exciting to see the first contributions to our new “Colour of the Month” project. The wonderful assortment of pink crocheted and knitted squares handed in already, has Robin and Amanda rubbing their hands with glee as to how they might be able to put them together and wondering just how many blankets we’ll end up making given the amazing response to this challenge so far. 🥰 Remember to keep an eye out for Robin’s posts on the project and keep in mind the basic requirements … pink 8ply acrylic in 15cm squares of any design or shade, you can be as basic, or as adventuress as you like. I know a number of us are using this project as a way to challenge ourselves to try something new, but don’t shy away from ‘old favourites’ like the traditional granny square.
Thank you for putting your heart and soul into everything that you do to make a difference to members of our local community in need. You’re all wonderful examples of “being the best we can 🐝”….right Robin Szczepanik! 😉💖💖
