Since I've been out of work for a bit, I've been keeping myself occupied doing charity work. One of the charity groups that I work with is the Helping Hands group at my local Michael's craft store. It started out as the Warm Up America group and also a weekly Crochet/Knit group. Then Michael's corporation cut out the classes that they used to sponsor, and everything sort of fell apart. The 2 instructors wanted a way to still continue with the charity group, and the store agreed to let them hold the weekly charity sessions. One is on Monday evenings and the other is on Thursday mornings. I've been going to the Thursday session and meeting all sorts of wonderful ladies. Their creations are outstanding.
I've been donating hats for the homeless and baby booties and blankets and anything else that I've had time to crochet.
This year, I've had a few friends to become pregnant or in other cases, some friends daughters. So I've been crocheting baby layettes.
This is one that I just finished yesterday and need to get in the mail to a friend who is having her second baby. I hope she likes it. Its a 5 piece set consisting of the blanket, dress, jacket, booties and bonnet.
