I just finished crocheting this baby afghan - Lucy's ripple pattern from Attic24 - I added a shell border to mine. Excuse the early morning sun streaming across the blanket - but it did make it ever so warm and cozy.
Everyone once in a while I squeeze in time to work on a project for Enchanted Makeover. I'm just going to use their words: "Imagine feeling hopeless, scared, vulnerable and unworthy because you are living in an environment where often everything is depressing, broken or filled with things other people threw away. Imagine your children living in such a place." Enchanted Makeover's mission (all volunteer) is to transform these depressing environments into places that inspire and are supportive to those re-building their lives.
I know a lot of sewers, quilters, knitters and crocheters out there create lots of beautiful things. You might even have a pretty, useful item that you are willing to part with in order to help someone else. After all, that's what this season is all about.
