Donation Day

Last week I showed you the following items which were going to be donated.
Today was the day Kathleen, Liz, Deeva, Beth and I took everything to USCRI .
There were 51 items and sets donated to the new residents of our country, some of whom leave their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
Afterwards we went to The Riverboat Bar and Grill for a celebratory lunch. We had a beautiful afternoon with comforting breezes on the Hudson River, in spite of the 89 degrees in the sun.
Soon after we were seated we had visitors. They appreciated the crumbs that were tossed their way.
But couldn't quite make out what kind of food blew overboard when a big gust of wind took one of the dollar bills from our tip to the waitstaff.
Tonight Beth showed us the sweater she completed for her daughter's birthday. It took our breaths away! What a beauty!
She said it took her three months to complete and that was while she was knitting other things too. Look at the perfection in those stitches! The braided ribbing runs right up into the pattern on the body. Just gorgeous!
Maureen is still plugging away on her reversible stripes scarf.
I'm making slow progress on the first of a pair of Jaywalker socks for the returning homeless female veterans of our current project.
By next week it should be past the heel. But for now I'm going to look for a cool place to veg out. It's really hot here.
