While I was at at the Dragonfly…

Baskets of Love from Dragonfly

Some funky, fun squares

After a day at the zoo with the kiddos I got a date night with my eldest child. Acoustic and poetry night at the Dragonfly Tea Cottage. Poetry night is one of my favorite “get away from the house for adult time” events. Since Indigo was playing I took Charlie to check it out. He and I had a great evening of music, apricot tea and dessert. If you get to pop in to the Dragonfly for lunch you have to try the bread pudding. Amazing doesn’t begin to cover it!

While I was there I took some pictures of the over flowing baskets of squares. The out pouring of support from the loyal Dragonfly family has been amazing. They are going to reach their goal of 75 squares. Yesterday, a customer dropped off 30 squares. Can you believe it? 30! That brings them to an approximate total of 42.  Keep it going Dragonfly!

A huge thank you to Linda and Conny for their continued support and donations. Their squares, along with Dragonfly’s, bring us to a total of 120! Enough for four afghans! We are 2 afghans, a mere 60 squares, away from our immediate goal of 6. Of course I would love to blow that goal out of the water and I know we can do it.

On behalf of Love-Squared and the Family House recipients of the finished afghans, a heartfelt thank you.

Friday night knitting at the Dragonfly

Jessica Working Hard

Squares from the Dragonfly Family

It’s finally Friday! That means knit night at the Dragonfly Tea Cottage. One of my favorite weekly events. There is not a better way to end the long, crazy week than sitting on the front porch, sipping some iced chai and chatting with wonderful people.

While Jessica was concentrating on her purple square, I was inside with Jen, looking at all the great squares her patrons have donated. We also discussed a knit along at the Dragonfly soon. Details will follow as soon as I get them set. Until then, I hope you can join us on the porch every Friday from 6-8pm.

Dragonfly Artisan Tea Cottage Sets Goal For Squares

Knitting at The Dragonfly

Jennifer, owner of The Dragonfly Tea Cottage in Sylvania, OH, has set a goal of 75 squares from her patrons.  These squares will be joined to make patchwork afghans and gifted to homeless children in our area. Family House will receive the first bunch of afghans. You can drop off your squares at the Dragonfly Tea Cottage, 5723 North Main Street, Sylvania, OH 43560
