Finding Normalcy
Created By: Patti Faurie

I had learned to crochet at an early age and in my early thirties , started sewing and got away from crochet. Then twenty years later, a little hurricane named katrina came along and I lost everything I owned. Months later, I thought i was handling the stress well. Problem was, I always had something to keep me busy. After the hurricane, we literally had nothing, and I guess my mind couldn't stand having nothing and no projects to do. After a hospital stay relating to the hurricane, and being put on medication I had never needed before, I realized what was wrong. I went to the first place I could think of that sold yard and bought a set of crochet hooks, yarn and got busy. The two year anniversary of Katrina is coming in two months. I am still crocheting, and as long as I can afford yarn, plan to continuine. Many of my family lost everything also, and all of us need, scarves, hats, shawls, capes, afgans, baby blankets, etc.

Having crochet to do has helped my mental state tremendously. I am now in a new house and have lots of things to crochet to make it a home.

I believe that God truly helps those who helps themselves. I helped myself out of a great mental depression from the hurricane. Now if I can just live to pay SBA for my new 30 year will be good. (My husband and I joke about a 30 year mortgage at our age. Our flooded home had been paid for. But God has blessed us with good health and a job to help us make ends meet in a new community.
