Prayer Shawls Delivered

Five prayer shawls were delivered to the chaplain at
Sherman Hospital, Elgin, IL today. 
My dear friend, Barb L, donated much of the yarn and I was lucky to have the time to crochet them. There is one more finished except the fringe and a second one about 1/3 of the way crocheted -- and Barb donated more lovely yarn today for another shawl.  Without donations and support, I couldn't keep up with it.  thank you one and all.

The lovely blue is currently being used in the Meditation Room at the hospital as an alter cover.

Label for Hats

Was delivering prayer shawls to the hospital today and stopped in at the Cancer Care Center -- here is a picture of the little labels that the coordinator has added to the caps that Stephanie and I have donated.
I was doing some calculating and believe that since September (3 months ago) with the help of my daughter, Stephanie, and friends Dee, Lynn and Sue we have donated over 50 chemo caps, 40 baby bonnets and 15 prayer/comfort shawls -- and I have a soft red and ocean/multi colored shawl finished except for the fringe.  Will do that in the next couple days.  I must also note that I have received many donations of yarn from my dear friend, Barb L., and cash donations for yarn from many other friends.  The proceeds from the few hats and scarves I sold have gone to the purchase of more yarn to make items for charity.
