January 2019 Sew day

Hi Everyone:
We had a fun time for our first sew day of the year. Lisa organized a wonderful BBQ, and make delicious sides so that we could stay in our crafting room and keep going on our ferret bedding.

Here is our first Crafty Weasel Sew Day of 2019 Picture. The wonderful Christmas decorations were still up at Brookdale. Karen is holding Fi, Morgan’s boy. Johnny didn’t get into the first picture, but he was lucky and had a separate picture with Finch, Morgan Tangren’s other boy.

Attendees:
Lisa
Margaret
Florence
Karen
Johnny
Elsa
Dyna
Jennifer
Morgan

Accomplished:
7 – Sleepsacks
2 – Wonton Flowers
4 – (Made by Margaret at home)
12 Hammies

So, we had a really good start to our year, and we also have a nice amount in process that we will be able to work on next month.

December 2018 Fun Sew Day

The Crafty Weasels finished off the year with a fun sew day, and sharing of all types of food in the Brookdale Crafting Room. Johnny brought his two sweet girls to share with us and the residents.

No group picture was taken, not even food pictures were taken. But we had a great time making rope baskets and microwave bowls. The one picture I took was of Georgina, who has helped us for quite sometime. Here is the message and picture that I posted on FB:

“Is this not the sweetest face ever? This is Georgina from our Crafty Weasel Fun sew day today. She’s, a resident at Brookdale, that helps us each month pinning ferret bedding. It is the only picture we took today, but it will always be my favorite. She gave up sewing when her muscular degeneration got too bad for her eyes to see fine clothing. She made this rope basket today!!”

November 2018 Sew Day

Saturday at the crafty weasels sewing day, we were short of some of our regulars. The good news is that we had gotten lots of the bedding almost to the second to last step. This full bag is what we were able to complete!!
Morgan, is holding Sue Pyron’s little girl.

The residents at the nursing home always love to have the ferrets there to visit.

This seemed like the perfect time to do a fun sew day, so next month we will be having a fun sew day. If you have a craft you want to learn, or a fun idea, just let us know.

October 2018 Sew Day

Yes, I’m very very late with this message. But we did have a wonderful group for last month sew day. We had Diane Lund visiting us from North Carolina, and she blended right in and helped us keep things rolling.

Now, it doesn’t look like our total is as big as usual, but the good news is there is a lot of stuff that is just right there at the end waiting for the last two final steps ….so we should be able to make up the count next month. Hoping we have a huge turnout to get it all accomplished.

September 2018 Sew Day

Well, we were a small group, but very accomplished on this month. Lisa brought some wonderful cupcakes, also meat, cheese and crackers to help celebrate Elsa’s Wedding. I’ve attached a picture to this message, and it was taken in the dining room where we have lunch. Our resident Crafty Weasel, Georgina, had to go have lunch with her husband so wasn’t in the picture this time. She is actively recruiting other residents, and hoping that we will have a couple more residents to help us next month.

Well, it was quite a day for all of us on Saturday.  Morgan brought her furkids, which went over well with the residents!  Sue was our Birthday Girl, so Lisa made a cake, and there were balloons, and ice cream from the kitchen.  :-)
I think a good time was had by all!!
