The Believe Show radio interview and other happenings...

 
Good afternoon all, I hope this Saturday finds everyone in great health and spirits! :) A couple of Sunday's ago, I was privileged and honored to be on The Believe Show on KVSL and interviewed by the lovely Barbara Bruce! It was very exciting to share with people who were listening, what my passion is, and that of course is Hats from the Heart/My Journey Journals. I am not as computer literate as I seem to think I am, so I am unable to share the interview in my blog. :( But if you would like to listen, please shoot me an email and I will send it through email to you if you'd like. :) I am so very grateful for that opportunity, and appreciate Rob Welch making that connection and helping spread the word for Hats from the Heart/My Journey Journals. What an inspiring journey he is on, as well as, the lovely Barbara Bruce . I could never express my gratitude enough for all their help and all of the help God has blessed me with!

It has been a busy couple of weeks, just with "life" getting in the way of my crocheting ;) Seriously though, I did make a man's hat and I had a special request from my sister in MD to make a hat for her friend's niece who is going through her 2nd round of treatments. You can check out her face book page here Holding Hands for Haley , sending my prayers for a swift recovery for this precious little girl!  I will be making another hat for her maybe tomorrow morning and sending them both out next week. I was able to also complete another another man's hat this morning, and it was challenging to say the least, but I persevered and finished it! Let's just get to sharing the pictures of our latest creations, shall we?

First up is a man's sound wave beanie. I love how this turned out!! You can find the pattern over at The Crochet Zombie where I have found and used  several of her pattern's for the men's beanies. :)



Love when I can get free patterns that are quick and easy to work up, quicker to make, more I can get done to donate! Next is the hat I made as a special request from my sister in MD, it is a girl's big bow beanie. I combined a couple of patterns for this hat! I used the pattern for the big bow from Persia Lou and the hat pattern itself came from CroCreations .



And last, but not least at all is the hat I finished up this afternoon. A man's lattice stitch beanie, that was a challenge to begin with! When I bought this yarn, I thought that these colors would look really cool together, well that must have been the Floridian girl in me coming out because if you are a Miami Dolphin's fan or a Florida Gator fan, this hat would be perfect for you! :)  I started it early this morning, and then got to the "lattice" portion of the hat....yeah, I had to go work out my frustration by cleaning the kitchen because I just couldn't figure it out :( By the time I got that done and sat back down to work on it, I had figured it out in my head and it was a breeze to finish it up. I found this free pattern over at Rheatheylia.com .




That is all the photo's I have to share with you for this update, unless you want to see pictures of my Vegas vacation with my honey....LOL  I'm just kidding, you can always check those out on my facebook page, this is strictly for the hats and journals for Hats from the Heart/My Journey Journals.

I want to get some more journey journals covered this weekend. My goal on these, are to cover as many as I can and then have a Journey Journaling party get together! Then we can have a fun party creating the fronts of the journals. What do you think? I've been working on this idea for a while now, just have to set it in motion...well it has been in motion, just S-L-O-W motion....LOL :D

I have many thoughts running through my brain this evening, so maybe I will just leave you with this.....



Sending you all my love and prayers, all who needs it, and all who think they don't need it, because we ALL need it!! Until my next update, may the light of God's love touch your heart and soul and help you to Glow from Within......<3
