Fall is Here!

Well, well, well.  It was a quick and exciting summer.  I thought I was going to have a ton of time to sit around and crochet.  Didn't happen.  My kids kept be quite busy.  However, my personal "crochet challenge" was always in the back of my mind and I DO have a box load of hats that I will be delivering to the homeless soon.  I'll take a pic of the box in a few days.  Right now, I don't wanna get up out of this comfy chair and make the effort.  But trust me, it's a big box 'o hats.  I'd like to thank the following people for contributing to this latest batch:
Kim Little
Scott Weinert
Marita Osterloh
Myla Wunderlich
Scott and Melissa Thacker
Traci Underwood
Maryellen Greene
Sharron Burnett
Lisa Anderson
Thanks guys for helping me!!

Summer update

I was able to tell just a few homemade items (thanks Maryellen) and with the profits I intend to purchase more winter hats for the homeless.  Since it's the beginning of the summer, I have taken a short break from crocheting, in order to have a little summer fun with my kiddos.  However, we've planned a big road trip and I hope to use that time to make a ton of hats.  I've lost track of how many I actually have right now, but I'll count them up and let you know.  Must be about 50?  Anyway, have a great summer.  Keep the prayers coming, that I can focus on my purpose and work diligently.  Thanks!!!

Blankets needed

Yea, I'm still crocheting hats for the homeless.  And frankly, I'm getting a little tried of it.  :)  But I'll keep going.  Pictures of the lastest ones will be up soon.  For now, I'm asking anyone who has any spare blankets (big, little, baby, throw, or just some scrap material) to bring it by my house.  I'm going to donate some blankets to the animal shelter.  We have a new shelter off of Borgfeld road, called Animal Friends.  I want to help them out by giving their pups something to sleep on.  So anything you have will help.  Thanks!

Care Packages coming soon!

The baby drive was fairly successful, but now it's time to move on to my next project. Are you paying attention? I know I'm changing directions all the time, but it's working! Just so you know, I am STILL crocheting a gazillion hats and scarves with your donated yarn. They are just going into a trunk, to be given out NEXT winter. So if you still want to donate yarn, I'm still accepting it!
My next project, meanwhile, is to create some "care packages". I'm going to make a large amount of crocheted items that I can sell (spread the word) and with the profits, I will make care packages fro the homeless. The will include soap, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a comb. So, keep watching my blog becuase soon I will have items up for sale. REALLY CHEAP, TOO!!! I promise!!

Results of the baby drive

I held a "Baby Drive" this last weekend, within my neighborhood. I initially tried to place flyers on the community's mailbox. Those got torn off. So then I shoved the flyers into the individual mailboxes. I guess a few people saw them, but am asuming most of them were tossed intot he trash. On the day before the drive, I made a huge banner, advertising the effort, on my garage door. The wind blew it to bits. The day of the drive, I placed a huge cardboard sign in the front yard, that advertised the baby drive. The wind kept blowing it over and then it rained. It was so pathetic! But in the end, I did have a few neighbors give very generously to the homeless babies of San Antonio. I wish I had more to give, but I'm very excited to deliver everything to the San Antonio Metropolitan Ministries on Thursday. Every little bit counts, right?!

PS Don't forget that if you EVER have ANYTHING to give away, send it my way. I'll take it to SAMM's homeless. Thanks!!
