Monthly Gazette - Issue 2.12 - December 2015

'Tis the season of "sharing the love" and, as crocheters, one of our methods of sharing and caring is through the gift of a hand-made item. 

As I write this, I think of the time and effort - and love - put into a crocheted gift. It is a beautiful thing! It makes me want to move away from the keyboard, grab my favourite crochet hook, and start making "that special gift", especially after getting inspired by the magnificent creations that you, our members, have shared.

And, on that note, I want to thank everyone for sharing their stories, their inspirational creations, and their knowledge (and questions) with the rest of us. Our community keeps growing and growing because of you. Thank-you.

Wishing everyone a wonderful December and holiday season!

Merry Christmas
~ Debbie

CREATION CHALLENGE

And to help celebrate this beautiful season, we have a little "creation challenge" for you...

CROCHET A SNOWFLAKE!

Inspired by janegreen's creations, I thought it was the perfect time of year to create a snowflake or two! 
Are you up for the challenge?

COLLABORATION CREATIONS

Our Collaborations began with an idea for a mandala designed by our members. The goal was to add a row each week during the 2015 year. We are down to our last four rows and I have to say that the result, so far, is beyond my expectations! 

With the success of our Mandala, we have added collaborations for a Granny Square creation and one using Hexagons. We haven't seen many progress photos, yet, but we do know that flamingfountain1 is having fun! 

I can't wait to see everyone's creations AND I look forward to seeing what 2016 will bring us as our Crochet.Community continues to collaborate.
