My reality check is this........In making my goal 125 scarves by November 1st I have realized that was an unrealistic goal, because when I set that goal I was depending on others to help me. I have come to know over this last month that I cannot force my thoughts onto other, and not everyone shares my views on charity. In the future I will place my goals based on myself and pray that God will allow me to achieve those goals with one thought in mind, Give to others, as I have been given to. I will continue to work towards helping others, whether it be Homeless, Babies, Battered women and children, Special Olympics, or Cancer victims, and if need be my next door neighbor. I hope that someone is touched with hope every time they receive something homemade by me or someone else because the love is there.

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.
