Crochet, crochet, crochet

Wow!  Crochet, crochet, crochet! 

Good thing I love to crochet because I have been doing a lot of it lately.  Some for orders I have received, some just because, and some for memory blankets for families that have lost children to disease and accidents.

 Making the squares are so gratifying.  You can't help but think about what the families must be going through at this terrible time during their lives.

If you might be interested in a project like this here is the link to the group that do these.  You can sign up to make squares, put blankets together or donate money towards the shipping of these blankets.  The group has a FB page so visit us there.  JTL Squares

The last two I sent out were for a family that lost 2 of their daughters in a car accident and a 3rd daughter is still in ICU with a head injury.

I also have been making some baseball caps for little guys!  I have sent one off to Hawaii, one to Maryland, and one stayed here in Michgan!

and this little set is for sale on my FB page, Brenda's Bric-a-Brac.
I thought "Daddy's Little Girl" would make a for a great photo prop.  This set is newborn size and consists of a football hat, leg warmers and a crocheted pink football!

And last but not least!  As a matter of fact is one of my favorite things to make! A snowflake!  And I find most of my patterns here,  Snowcatcher's blog and the snowflake I used is her February 14, 2011 pattern.  But this is not just just a snowflake  but a 3D snowflake!  This one is going to California!  but check it out! My 3D snowflake

And I came across this wonderful idea!  I wish I had thought of this or come across the idea while my boys were little and the grandkids were younger!  But I think my grandkids will still enjoy making these.  Great idea from  "Lines Across": Turn baby scribbles into bows (Gift Bow Tutorial)

Have a great Monday!!  I love Monday's because they are Snowflake Monday on Snowcatcher!!

    1. Thank you Mary! I can't wait to have some pics of them on some babies!

  2. Nice!

  3. Thanks Nicole! Off to visit you too!

  4. So sad to hear of that family's loss. What a wonderful thing you are doing to help those families.
    The football hat and accessories are adorable as well as the baseball caps.

    1. thanks Liz! It is so little to do for families that have lost so much. We get thanks from the families that usually include a picture of someone cuddling under the afghans! Heartbreaking but good to know there is a way to reach out to them.
