Current Happenings in the life of a Crochet-aholic
I am currently filling my life with charity work. I have found that keeping yarn and a crochet hook in my hands, keeps my hands out of the "cookie Jar".
I crochet with a purpose - usually LOL. So far I have been contributing to Project Linus (Sacramento); Handmade With Love Especially for You (a non-profit in Southern California that distributes comfort scarves and baby blankets to Women's Shelters); CCE (Charity Crochet Exchange) for whom I crochet afghan squares that go into making blankets for different charities - usually one a month. CCE just finished a 2 month project providing 50 lapghans to a nursing home in Missouri. I also make chemo caps and newborn hats for local hospitals.
So I am reinventing my blog to "brag" about what I am doing when I'm not here... or on Facebook. I also want a place where my family and friend can see why I really am doing something creative while helping others.
Now I must get ready for my Friday mornning Knitwits circle at the local library branch. It's only take me 8 years to find a social outlet here...
