Personal Projects

While it may seem that the only thing 3RC members have done this summer is make Special Olympic Scarves, that would be untrue.

As you can see here Amanda was working on her color work skills. She is donating this hat to our Holiday Sales. Right now everyone is starting to think about what to make for the sales, but I am holding back on pictures so all the items can be shown in November right before our sale dates (Dec 2-Dec 10).

This lovely young woman is Amanda's daughter, Cara, on her wedding day. She is wearing a stole made lovingly by Amanda for this occasion. You can see some of the intricacy of the stitches when you look closely. Amanda worked intensely to finish this shawl on time and arrive with it in California. I think it is just wonderful that she can wear this shawl on many other occasions and be reminded of a wonderful day and a wonderful mom at the same time. It's sad to think that not every bride has a wonderful memento made by their own mom. (or perhaps dad)
