:: Laguna Niguel Academy :: ( potholders for the cause)

Good morning my darlins!!!!!

Tuesdays are always better than Mondays, don't you think???

Well, this morning I decided to try and finish up my potholders. These colorful, vintage/retroish beauties will be included in food related gift baskets.

The baskets, along with many other handmade and donated items will be auctioned at the Laguna Niguel Academy food fair on October 16.
All proceeds from the sales will go towards the academy student fund.

I find this to be a very worthy cause, especially since two of my five grandchildren are students at this school.

It is a day filled with music performed by the students (they have a great music department), great food from many different countries, fun booths, and other activities.
My daughter who is a part of the home and school committee always manages to get me involved. Last year, I was suppose to teach the 7th and 8th graders to crochet so that they could put together a student project for their class. LOL!!!!! Now THAT was an experience!!!!! No bananas!!!!

This year, rather than put any student through that sort of torture >:-)
I decided to donate these pot holders. And some Pastel de Choclo ( Chilean corn and meat pie) Yummo. For the food booths.

Just a couple more to go, and then on to the next crochet project, cardigans and hats for the new babies in the family, five month old twins, Marcus and Octavia. And the newest little one, baby Sophie. (nephew and nieces)

Good bye for now, and have a fantabulous rest of your day/week!!!!

PS, the technician just left, this means that my Internet is once again up and running, no more yucky iPhone pics!!
