Heart Healthy February

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?!

Teaching on a Jet Plane

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!

Bridget’s Birthday Scarf!

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.
