My Meetup Anniversary!

So about a year ago, I created a group on Meetup.com. To be honest, I wanted to prove to myself that I could be social and not get all crazy anxious about it. Plus I was stressed with the lacking ability to find a home… Basically, I needed something to keep me busy and help me finish the 12 thousand projects I’d started!

I didn’t know if a single person would even show up to my first event (12 did) and I’m so happy that the group is still active, and more active and regular than ever!

My first concept was pretty much to just get a “stitch and bitch” going (perhaps with less bitching). And I think I’ve found exactly what I was looking for!

The group gives me an excuse to get out of my house once or twice a month (and an excuse to clean the house when I have occasional meetings there!) and it’s helped me complete a number of projects. I never would have found the felted crown pattern I used to make all my neices (and cousins’ kids!) crowns this past winter.

This weekend, I finally wrapped up that bunny blanket after our meeting.

Thanks friends for helping to create such a wonderful place for us to gather, share stories and ideas!
