Crocheting by Heart!

I'm a crocheter. Been crocheting for 45 years.  Wow it's hard to believe that much time has passed.    If you step in to my home the only evidence of my art is a tote bag of yarn near my rocking chair.  There are no crocheted items displayed.  No toilet roll covers or cozies of any kind.  Everything I make is given away.  A project may start out for my home but usually ends up somewhere else.  It's how I show God's love.  The recipients (known and unknown) are prayed for while I'm crocheting their gift. I admire those who can design and sell their work. To me it's amazing I wish God had given me the gifts to do that but I'm just not wired that way.
My joy comes from giving it all away!

Recently I finished a gift set for my Niece who is having a baby.  I will post pictures of it at a latter time.  When I'm in between projects I make hair scrunchies. It something I can do while watching TV and you guessed I give them away!

I just crochet around an elastic pony tail holder.  Attach the yarn, chain about 8 and single crochet in the pony tail holder, repeat until it's full.  Its a good way to use up scraps of yarn.
 I also fix up small dolls to go in to toy packets that I put together for the
 Isaiah 6:8 Blessing Bag Ministry

 These bags are going to Mexico and the Philippines.  We service  areas where Samaritan's Purse does not go.

Filled bag ready to go!

Happy faces!
 Allot of hands goes into this ministry. I just play a small part. There ladies that sew the bags. Others collect the items that are donated.  Some fill, sort and gather.  All are important.  There's more that is done that I did not mention but it does not go unnoticed.  I simply use my gift to serve others and that is Life as I know it...
