MAT #11

Now to start working on the next delivery. The first one is ready to go. I'm working on plarn now. This makes 32 items for the year.

I HAVE NO WORDS

 This makes all our hard work worthwhile. They had 18 people go to minister to the homeless in Chattanooga Tennessee. They had chicken noodle soup, chili , chicken and dumplings and cupcakes. they also had clothes to give away.   I didn't go but I have another mat ready. My heart hurt when I saw this picture of the lady laying on my mat. I'm so thankful God led me to do this. Thank you again to the people that saved bags and made plarn.

DONATED PLARN

This is plarn my friend Glenda and her friends made for me. Glenda's church visits homeless camps and brings them clothes and other items. I think they may take food as well this time. She wants me to go the next time but I don't think I can. I'll stay home and work on more mats. I forgot to post that they helped make plarn on the second mat as well. Thank you to everyone that helped, it really helps me out so much. Out of 21 balls of plarn I had 5 balls left. I also made this one 2 1/2 feet wide instead of 3 feet. It takes 16 balls of plarn to make one mat. That's a lot of bags. This makes 26 items for the year.

HOMELESS MAT AND SQUARES

 MAT FOR THE HOMELESS
 This is my first plastic mat. I made it to wide and it's not that straight. It took two weeks to make it.  I've got another one started that is not as wide.


READY TO GO

 11 SQUARES
I still need to get this afghan made as well. I need to make some hats to go with the mats. My friend's church will be handing out more things for the homeless around the middle of Feb. and again in March. She is helping me make the plarn so I can hopefully make this mat  faster. The mat makes #14 donations for the year.

The end of 2016

Since Tim passed away on December 11, 2014 I've gone through a lot changes. It's been hard trying to figure out how to live without him. Trying to figure out who I am anymore. I still miss him so much, he was my soulmate. I can go out to eat by myself now but I do still cry if it's a place he liked. I've started crocheting again. I can't make the preemie bereavement sets yet, but I can make hats for the homeless and cancer hats. I can go on little hikes by myself and take short drives. I was never afraid when Tim was alive but that changed. About the time I think I might be getting a little better I find myself in my dark place. But I'm going to try really hard to find a happy place in 2017. That's why I'm going to try to post here and hope I  can find something good to share.  I will find good in all things. Have a blessed day!
