@moleymakes shared: “Little Havens is a local children’s hospice providing respite breaks, symptom control and end-of-life care to youngsters not expected to reach adulthood because of a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. A group of local woman known as The Craft Club are attempting to create a magical garden, made entirely of crochet items. They are going for a World Record attempt of over 4000 items!” They’re seeking donations of a variety of crochet items over the next month or two. Email [email protected] for more info.

Crochet Quote

Have you been catching up on life this spring? Have you had to set aside your creativity to tackle some not so creative issues or projects? Try to steal a few moments of time to indulge in your passion. It doesn’t matter if its crochet, knitting, reading, painting, whatever gets your mind off of life’s little bumps in the road. A little me time can go a long way for your sanity.” – The Crochet Caretaker
