Slowing down but not forgotten.............

Its been busy at work and haven't been able to crochet as much, but did manage a few things.
I am so glad that the Bridge and Beyond have been able to enjoy the items that have been sent. The Blue Scarf (red heart: Turqua and Blue 886) is for the Special Olympics, Every year they chose a new color for their scarves, and every participant that is in the Olympics gets to wear a hand made scarf, Its a little thing but just think of the smile on these wonderful faces. It is worth it to me to step out of the box and do something different, which is not really different but colors I never dreamed would go together . Was I wrong, aren't they beautiful together? And the Beautiful squares go to Share a Square, a project that takes a 6x6 square with a 12 inch tale and puts them together to make an afghan for children with Cancer. A great way to use the scraps of yarn left over from all the scarves we do. Or anything else you may do. Think of the smiles. Now on to make my first set of slippers for the Pink Slipper project, a group that shares slippers with abused and battered women and children in shelters around the country. Mom has made a pair and they are surprisingly warm, I thought it would be rough on the feet but again I am wrong. If you have questions about any of these projects look them up. There are so many worthy charities and projects that need out help won't you join us too.
