I am happy to finally have the time to update my Blog. I've been very busy and love the chance to reflect on the past couple of months.
What has kept me so busy, you ask? The answer is hats!
It all started last spring when I joined a Scottish Country Dancing group. A small group, our goal was to join another group of Hawaiian Hula dancers for an annual show at my work. It was a lot of fun and the group continued to practice after the show was completed. We were asked to dance for a charity event at a local Veterans nursing home. A member of our Human Resource department was brainstorming about ways to involve other co-workers in charity events. I told her that I knew several people who crocheted and I would be happy to volunteer my efforts to teach if there was anyone who wanted to learn.
The end of September was approaching and the HR director told me that she was going to open the building on the next Saturday so we could meet and do crochet. By default, it was kind of left to me to do the organizing. We put out signup sheets and advertised on our departments internal web site.
Scrambling at the last minute, I proposed that we do hats for charity. I knew that Primary Children's Hospital would take hats and I thought I could interest some people in making hats for babies. Also, Utah Catholic Services which serves the homeless would accept hats.
