Block Party Date Announced!!!

The 2011 Block Party date is ANNOUNCED! Ok, they have been for awhile if you are reading the pages at the top of my blog... and if you haven't go check them out!

The Block Party date for 2010 is February 5th 2010! Below is a little information from the flier I made.

When: February 5th, 2011 at 9 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (or as long as you can stay)
Where: At W****c**** Christian Fellowship Church - Email me forhisgloryhandiwork (at) gmail (dot) com for directions and location
What: Everyone brings 6” crocheted or knitted squares, and we all sew them together and make blankets for an orphanage in Eastern Europe.
R.S.V.P.: Please R.S.V.P. to Sarah via email at forhisgloryhandiwork (at) gmail (dot) com, or by commenting here.
Bring: Finished 6” squares (any yarn can be used, it just needs to be machine washable), tapestry or yarn needles (please bring as many as you have). We are also going to be collecting anything warm that can be made out of yarn to wear (baby hats, hats, slippers, baby booties, scarves, etc.) Please have squares there by 9:15 a.m.

Join us for a day of fun, fellowship, and make some new friends! Snacks and punch will be served throughout the day. Lunch will also be provided.

Everything we collect and make will be sent over to a very poor orphanage in Eastern Europe. This is the same orphanage we recently adopted my little brother Elijah from, and all the children are tiny and undernourished. You could very well be saving a life by helping to make one of the blankets! If you would like to help, but you can’t make the date (or live too far away), please get your squares to me ahead of time so we can use them. Please email me for my address. If you have any questions, please contact me using the info above.

Oh and along with the Block Party theme, I have to confess (unfortunately) that I am a big fat loser... :) My friend, Rachel, was over yesterday, and we decided to have a contest... for who could make the most blocks between the time we dropped her off last night, and this morning. The loser would weave in the other's ends (we both hate weaving them in!). Well last night, I had to make an informative slide show for the Block Party for church today, and it took much longer than I planned, so it wasn't a fair contest. But still she won, even if it wasn't fair and square! I had 9 blocks and she had 13 blocks. So I have some ends to weave in!
I encourage you to have a contest with someone else to see who can get the most squares done in a short amount of time. It will get more blocks done that way, and its fun to have some competition to motivate you to work on it! If you don't have a crocheting buddy to do it with, email me! I would be happy to do it with you!

And speaking of Rachel, stay tuned for my next post...
