Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 3, Week 6

It’s Wednesday, and week 6 of the Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge.  I’m about half way through the Lace Topper I started on last week, but I’m going to put it aside for tonight.  I’ll be working on a special surprise for a very special little girl, CeeCee Creech.

Last week while attending Stitches South, I met this beautiful little girl, CeeCee, and her mother, Belinda.  CeeCee is the force behind Elephants Remember Joplin.  If you haven’t heard about them, please check out her story, and help in any way possible.   At the end of the show on Sunday, CeeCee and Belinda came by our booth to say their goodbyes and I told CeeCee she could select some yarn to make her elephants.  Being very conservative, she selected only a few colors from With Love, Stardust and Boutique Sashay. I was notified just yesterday that she has already knitted an elephant using the color  Fruit Punch in With Love and it was auctioned off last night with $100 going to Homes for Hope in Joplin.


CeeCee remembered the Best in Hoodie Vest that was in the fashion show and told us she really liked it. LW2876 I had her try it on for sizing and the small fits her perfectly.  She was trying to think who could crochet this vest for her and I whispered in her mother’s ear that I would make it.  Tonight, I am going to begin working on this vest for her and I hope to have it finished up by next week to send her.  Can’t wait to see her smiling face when she receives this hoodie vest.  I’ll have more stories about CeeCee, Belinda and Elephants Remember Jopin, in future blog posts.
