craft something for someone in need! I am sad. My grandma is sick. I didn't know what to do with myself so when my boss told me to just go home, I couldn't just sit and be sad. I just signed up for Kelly McCaleb's 31 birth-day celebration (go there you can help too). I made a receiving blanket and crocheted some booties (pattern here). Strangely, as I was working, a phone call made the news of my grandma official but the sewing and crocheting made me feel better. I think I will make some more. I need to make more as things keep adding up and now my mom's dog (the best dog in the WHOLE world) is sick. I don't mean for this post or the blog to be a sad place but it feels good to get it out. I am sad, mad, sorry, helpless, frustrated and everything in between. I am all the way across the country and can't even give hugs to the people that need them. I just don't know what to do. So I think I will go back to crocheting...crochet hats for patients on chemo and preemie babies. Is there an organization I can donate these too? I work at a hospital and I am waiting to hear how I can get these hats to my own hospital but I read something online that said "no handmade donations", can that be right? Does anyone know where I can send hats?
