Back in the beginning of December I read a bulletin at my hospital. The bulletin was calling for baby hats in red for all sizes of babies. The point behind the red hats was to promote a heart healthy diet from birth to death.
I have worked on a cardiac telemetry (heart monitoring) unit for over a year and this is an issue close to MY heart. Thus, I utilized my favorite yarn-related website Ravelry and started on some hats!
HEART healthy, right?!
I’m teeacchinnggg on a jet plane! I was also leaving on a jet plane!
It was my unique experience this past trip from Ontario, CA to Phoenix, AZ this past winter break that a woman my age sat in the same row as me. She pulled out some yarn and a crochet hook and I asked her about her project. It just so happened that she was trying to teach herself how to crochet.
What were the odds that on a plane where you seat yourself and you are trying to learn to crochet, you sit next to a somewhat experienced hooker? It was more than coincidence if you ask me. I was able to successfully teach her how to single crochet a simple scarf! These are the pictures I received from her only a few days after the flight!
She is well on her way to being a happy hooker!
She has periodically sent me more pictures of her fabulous hooking skills! I am so blessed to have been able to assist her in her crafting endeavors!
One of my closest friends since moving from sunny CA to frigid IN has been Bridget. Bridget and I became friends over a mutual interest in quilting a few months before I moved to IN. What were the odds that she would be a crazy nursing major as well?
Bridget has been there for me through so many of the things that I have felt and thought. She is a truly amazing person. She is one of the most genuine, compassionate and generous persons I know.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIDGET!
Inspired by the cap I made for my Mom this past Christmas, I made a Mini Ice Cream Sundae Cap for donation to a local hospital!
