Pretty Colors


Every Thursday morning I get together with a group of warm hearted friends to crochet and stitch. Most of our projects go to good causes. We’ve crocheted burp cloths for new mothers, hats for children and the Women’s Center, hot pads to welcome new neighbors.

Now we are making the prettiest little bookmarks for those who are ill or in need of some cheer and love. These are so much fun and work up quickly. I've been making lots of them so that I can try all the different colors of thread and ribbon combinations. I love playing with color and that’s what keeps it interesting. Besides working alongside some great ladies.

You are so patient to enjoy things that seem tedious to me. These are just beautiful! How generous of you to make these lovely things to give away.
