HOTH: Crochet Group End of Year Contributions

🧶❤🧶❤🧶❤🧶❤🧶❤

I am so ridiculously proud of my little crochet group. We have a few dozen members but only about 10 of us that crochet.

This year has been so challenging for so many of us, but we managed to do 60 lapghans (split between our domestic abuse shelter, senior orphans and Moffitt Cancer center; baby hats for Shaken Baby syndrome Oklahoma; hats, scarves, clothing, food and other items for our Senior Orphans.

Now meet some of the crew:

Our Leader and my Bestie!
A Force to be wreckened with Ms M. She’s 91!
A newby and 2 Hook Sisters: 1 from Boston and 1 from Ohio
1 of the Youngins and part of the sustenance provided by our leader.
Me and the newby admiring all our hard work, all tagged and bagged.
Even though she couldn’t be here, she sent stuff all the way from North Georgia❣

The work tables…

From the Lady Cave: Just Do It!

I am speaking from my own personal experience and hindsight.

I’ve often said “Be like Nike; Just Do It!”

(No this is NOT an endorsement)

What is your first thought when you hear this statement? I am willing to bet it starts with “But…”and then you list all the reasons why you can’t.

I get that there are financial constraints, so please don’t use that excuse.

What I am getting at is “How do you know unless you try?” Believe me, I know something about this; I haven’t lived this long without figuring out that I am the only person standing in my own way.

If you read my last post you’ll know that procrastination is not good.

Take that step, one little step! Nothing easy is worth doing, but I’ll guarantee that once you “try” you’ll realize it’s never as hard as you thought it would be. Sometimes doing stuff outside your comfort zone is Scary as Hell! But holy moly can it be an amazing experience; like driving my own motorcycle.

What’s the worst can happen? You find out it doesn’t work out? So what! Now you have a better idea of what will work, so you back up and try again.

Recently for me I’ve discovered that in crochet, I really can do most of the things I thought were way to complicated.

Did I do it all on my own? Nope, sure didn’t. I used video tutorials, asked experts and I leaned heavily on what I already knew and BAM I FREAKING DID IT!

From the Lady Cave: Grandchildren ❣

Talk about a whole new chapter, when you become a grandparent thats a whole new level!

Regardless of the circumstances, becoming a grandparent is like nothing else. At some point, you realize all the work you put in to your children has now come full circle. I’ve said this a million times, ” Kids learn what they see” and they are about to really show you what they learned.

You know that saying “Be careful what you ask for” this, this is a perfect example! Lol You know “The Mothers Curse” oh it works!

The “Mean Mug”!
