Catching up

It has been a while since I updated the blog, so I thought I'd take some time today to catch up.  The group met today and we had a good time.  Here are the last couple of pictures we took.

 We love to have donuts from Troyer's when we meet!  They go good with the coffee at Happy Bean!

 Vivian had a birthday and we celebrated it with Carrot Cake made from Beth Jones and a class in Zentangle at the Makery in Mount Vernon.

We'd love for you to come hang out with us.  We meet the 2nd Saturday of every month at Happy Bean at 10am.  Don't worry if you can't stitch.  :)

Why you should attend a knitting group...

 Our NAMI Knitting group got together today and Vivian shared a book with us.  We think it has a great explanation on why you should attend a knitting group...

This describes our group!  We would love to have you join us!
We meet again on December 8th, 10am at Happy Bean in downtown Mount Vernon, Ohio.  Don't worry if you don't know how to knit.  We have wonderful teachers!!  Or, just come and have coffee with us.  Hope to see you then!

Earbud pouches and favorite books

Good morning!  Our group got together at Happy Bean today.  Vivian has been busy knitting earbud pouches (or tech buddies)!   They also would work for Easter eggs.  We also had a new friend join us today and showed her how to make her first stitches.  The trick is to remember to stab the bunny, wring it's neck and then throw it down the basement and out the back.  (No live bunnies were harmed!)  :)  

We also shared some of the books we are currently reading.

We would love to have you join us!  The next get together at Happy Bean is on April 14th at 10am.  Don't worry if you don't know how to stitch.  We will show you how or you can just chat with us and enjoy a good cup of coffee.

Sorry, but I am a little late in posting this.  A lot has happened to our group this summer.  Some of us have lost loved ones and some of us have had family members go in and out of hospitals.  Life has been pretty tough, so we haven't been able to get together.  Those of us who have been to the NAMI Family to Family Class know that there are going to be valleys in this roller coaster life we live, but we must not lose hope!  There will be a turn and we will start to climb back up again.

Since our family members who lost their lives were registered donors, they were able to give the gift of life to others.  It is encouraging to know that someone else was blessed because our loved ones chose to Donate Life.

We hope to meet as a group again on August 12th.  Come and join us!  Remember, we are better together!
