I am trying to get two meetings in one post since the chapters in Jackson, N.C. and Roanoke Rapids, N.C. meet on the same day. I think it can be easily seen that we enjoy what we do, and we like meeting with each other. A few photos from both chapters so far for this month.
GSOL OF JACKSON, N.C.
We delivered 18 baby blanket ensembles that will be given to first time mothers in need. The blankets, beanies, and booties are so very much appreciated. Your help is a blessing. You DO make a difference in this beautiful way.
Johanna actually put together a number of baby blankets before the meeting. This is only one of them. She gave the rest to us early and they made it in today’s early delivery. Nice work, Johanna!!!
If we could all happen to show up on the same month, we would fill the seats. smile emoticon Today, it was nice to have (R to L) Shirley Fennel, Johanna, Peggy Bright, and Brenda Burns with us
Shirley Fennel made this pretty baby blanket. (She is also trying to hide her face. smile emoticon ) It was great having her back to meet with us today.
Brenda is a newbie to crochet. She learned how to make a slip knot and how to chain stitch today. It is so nice to have her join us.
Peggy Bright is also a newbie, but already she can make a slip knot, chain stitch, single crochet, and double crochet. By golly, I think she’s got it! Such a nice lady. Thrilled to have her join us.

GSOL OF ROANOKE RAPIDS, N.C.
The stack of blankets and lapghans crocheted and donated by the volunteers of Roanoke Rapids GSOL. Sherry Casey is the meeting coordinator for this group. They are doing an awesome job!
Mrs Cobbs was so happy to receive her gift! We hope it keeps her comfortable and keeps the chill away.
Mrs. Polly Burgess, the director at Carolina Rest Home, is very impressed with GSOL and all that we do. She is very grateful for us. We appreciate her kind words.
Part of our group had another couple of volunteers in and out during the meeting! Everyone was working on something different, which is nice to see our volunteers happy doing what they like. Evie was all smiles the whole time!
We are grateful for the yarn donation from THE ANGEL CLOSET in Ronaoke Rapids, NC
Virginia Garner started last month in our group and was so excited to make more squares. Now she is making C2C blankets and baby beanies too after watching a Youtube tutorial that Sherry Casey advised.
“When we engage in what we are naturally suited to do, our work takes on the quality of play and it is play that stimulates creativity.” – Linda Naiman
Virginia Garner even had all these squares ready for us with hat made, all I gotta do is whip stitch them together and we have another set ready! I can’t wait to see next months gifts cause Virginia picked out some beautiful colors for her next projects!
I think these are the last of the smaller tight hooked squares Leslie Harder made us over the past month, but these type have made some beautiful blankets and I love her color coordinating! I have sever blanket to sew tails into the blankets and make hats for this month…need to get to working them.
Leslie Harder is still hard at work making squares for us 14 each of these two different colors I love the yarn she used very different than I’ve seen.
“The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.” — Alan Alda
Carol Guidry made this lovely soft blanket in a almost tangerine color…..I love it! She learned to make a hat this time so she can make our group complete sets to deliver to the Nurses-Family Partnership in Halifax.
Stay tuned! We have two more Chapters who will chime in with photos of their meetings this Month. Our Volunteers are AWESOME!
