These last years have been difficult. My dear sweet ever supportive Mother passed away earlier this year following several years of illness. I often sat with her, crocheting away the sadness. My crochet mentor also left this earth, so I felt very much like a rudderless ship. I turned to crochet and after amassing more stuffed toys than my living room can handle, I donated them to the local Children's Hospital. They were so pleased to have received them. Their goal is to give each child a blanket or toy. By my estimation they serve over 500 kids a week (more for the NICU, hats & booties). So if you are looking for an outlet for your passion of crochet gifts (knitted & sewn gifts also well received) please consider a local hospital or charity.

I lost my grandmother several years ago. She tried to teach me to knit and crochet when I was younger, but being the type who learns better with written instructions, I couldn't grasp the concept. When I began having children of my own I tried again and finally learned the basics. The night my grandmother passed away I was crocheting her a pair of slippers and my youngest daughter was making her first blanket. After several months I started crocheting again and now can't sit still without a project to work on. I now have a new generation to make things for and plan to try to teach them how to crochet. I want my grandmother's legacy to be passed on and her generosity with her handmade blankets to continue. I know this is what she and God want me to do with mine and my grandmother's talents.
