mailed a large box of newborn blankets to Norton hospital in Louisville KY. Also mailed a box of burial items to FT Sanders regional Medical Center in TN. They were completely out of items for the precious ones that have passed on.There is always a need for the tiny burial items. I know sometimes we can't imagine making things that tiny but if it were not for groups like ours they would have nothing for babies this tiny :-) Came home and am packing another box of blankets to get ready to ship out. Fall is here and the weather is getting cooler. All the hospitals are wanting newborn blankets and hats. the need is so great. I am so proud of my wonderful grouip. They always come thru when there is a need!
Went to my new hobby lobby today. wow I could have spent a bundle on I love this yarn! however my husband was with me so I had to be good. it was Very well stocked with all the colors! I picked up these 3 new variegateds. they are Hot stripes, Surprise stripes and Jazz stripes.
as you know Gods Tiny Angels is having a newborn blanket drive. Well I want to get 10 newborn blankets done by next Thursday as I have to go to the orthopedic dr and I don't know what the outcome is going to be. Just in case he tells me I can't crochet for a couple weeks I am trying to get them done. So here are blankets 1 thru 8 :-)
well I got my yarn yesterday and was a little disappointed in the 2 new colors of " I love this yarn" the Real Blue looks more purple to me and the Pizzaz Pink looks more like Rasberry :-( However they are still pretty just not what I expected from the pics online. I am attaching pics so you can see the colors.
I am still here. no pictures today. Been busy trying to pack up the 625 sweaters my wonderful group made last month! Going to wait till the weather cools a bit before shipping. We are now working on newborn blankets for the babies and I am also trying to do a Christmas hat or 2 every evening. I also need to do some Halloween hats. Just not enough hours in the day to get everything done. Right now I am impatiently waiting on the UPS man. you see I was bad again and ordered 3 boxes of yarn from Hobby lobby!2 will be here today and the 3rd will be here next Tuesday! I can't wait. new colors! just got an email from coats & clark and they have a new acrylic yarn self striping called stripes. Have not seen it anywhere yet but will be looking for it. lol..........
