Something I did today!

I wanted to mention this, because it was good. I spent some time teaching our preacher's oldest daughter, she is 10, to crochet. She wants so much to help with the preemie booties & things. She has a good motivator & think she will do well. I will post her things for her as they come. So keep a look out.!

Current projects (no, really)

Other than the ones already mentioned, I have new projects going. I am working on a baby blanket for my daughter's band director. I just found out they had a boy a month ago. How embaressing!! I am working on a new Blankey Brigade blanket called stars & stripes. It is comming along nicely, if I could just stick with it. I keep getting sidetracked with preemie items. They are so gratifying to make.

Snuggles

Snuggles are blankets made for Animal shelters. This great project is set up through Hugs for Homeless Animals.

Blankey Brigade

These are blankets I crochet and donate (along with many others in our wonderful group @ Crochetville) for newborns of soldiers that have been deployed.

Preemie Items

I have been busy crocheting preemie items for Texas Childrens Hospital & other hospitals here locally. My friend Sally, who is head of Project Linus here, is kind enough to destribute these where they are best needed.

There is actually a hat & booties that go with this set.
