Named “Suzy Q,” this first image is of the cloche I designed especially for Alamo City Etsy Team’s silent action coming up to support breast cancer research. The hat is made from a sublime blend of the softest rayon, bamboo and acrylic fibers. Five different types of yarn are used in the making of this hat. After frogging it quite a few times, I’m pretty happy with the result. It’s perfect! I just finished it’s certificate of authenticity tag and will be shipping this tomorrow morning!

The following images are a couple cute puppet critters I made for Spirit Jumps. Making puppets like this came about thanks to school homework projects my kids have had over the years. Where they have been assigned a writing project involving writing a play, making props and of course, making their puppets – then later performing it for the younger grades. Pretty cool and creative, but when it gets assigned more than once, you start figuring out new ways to do it. And being a yarnie, well – of course I’m going to use my yarn! Anyway…. My kids and I have had a lot of fun perfecting this project.
A collaborative work.

For those who don’t know me personally – one of my charity efforts is to give special crochet hats and items to people going through chemo or other major medical situations, especially to children.
Crochet is very meditative for me and as I create something, I focus the intent of joy and healing into what I make. I also focus intent toward the item being a beautiful experience to wear. It may sound wistful or romantic, but whether I give it away, or I sell my creation, I truly desire my work to be ongoing blessings to others.
Spirit Jump is a simple concept in sending encouragement to others. It’s as simple as a card to say hey – I’m pulling for you as you battle this; to say I send you Caring and Prayers. It doesn’t even require money to participate, only your time.
It’s perfect for my charity efforts, as I get to focus on the creation and am given permission to send someone prayers and encouragement through crochet, my favorite medium. And I dare say that if you are reading my blog, that it’s a perfect outlet for your charity work as well. There are no commitments other than what you set. You are not adopting someone, you are make a one time “reach out” to someone. And no money is really required.
Making a difference in this world one Light at a time.
