Filling a Need

I try to make Hat and Bootie for AI Dupont Hospital for Children and hats and slippers for The Ship Project and of course at Christmas time hats and gloves for the church. I feel guilty because I can't do this as often as I would like to because of work, home responsibilities and lack of reliable car for deliveries, you know.

Well I got involve with AI after see a note on the internet about making hats for cancer patience and I call the children's hospital and they said they would love to have hats and booties, why not keep them local, so I did.

The Ship's Project I got involved after 911 and found out the troops need things to keep them warm.

The church always asks for things around Christmas so I know to be prepared ahead of time with hats and gloves.

I use all different kinds of yarn, mostly yarn left over from the occasion project for my daughter or son or their friends.

I am always looking for fast and easy patterns for hats, gloves or mittens and adult slippers.

I'm sure the media has caught up with these charities; I know The Ship's Project has been in some of the crocheting and knitting magazines. The media has not caught up with me and it doesn't need to. I just keep making things.

Sorry I am not a writer,
