While I was in California my friend and her room mate went to entry their fair pieces at the Contra Costa County fair. Penny, Cay's roommate has never enter a fair before and was just so negative about her cross stitch. Well guess what they both did very well, Cay won a few 1st places for her Afghan and Doliy and division winner for the Doliy. Penny won a 1st place on her cross stitch. here is a pic of it.

On May 17th I took a trip to California to see my Friend Cay. Just to have girl time on catching up on our lives and crocheting . We did not do any tourist things just sat, crochet and talk. She also helped me in getting my Blog up and running and got me back into CrochetParterns club. It just so happen that weekend there was a Crochet Soriee hosted by Peter Franzi at the Oakland Telegraph Community Center(they do great work there on a volunteer bases). So the pics here are from that meeting. I met some wonderful people and hope to see them again when I go back for the CGOA conference in September. I am really looking for to this never been to one that dealt with crocheting and knitting. I have done a lot of craft fairs.
May went by fast, did have a few moments to crochet. On May 4th and 5th My sister and I did the Relay for Life here in Okaloosa County. We represented the Destin Elks Lodge #2688. We did have fun but fell short of our $2000.00 goal. We did raise $1828.00. I want to Thank every one that supported us here is a big THANK YOU!!!!!
