Dear Reader, There is so much to tell you and words seem inadequate.
Good thing I have PICTURES (!!!) because each picture is worth 1000 words (so they say).
Where did I leave off in the story? Oh yes, Valency's shipment of fleece hats sewn joyfully by children at her Church.
Receiving Valency's hats meant I was having "hat-valanche" again, so I prepared another shipment. A second shipment of 100 hats filled an 18"x18"x16" box from Home Depot. I sent it out at the end of May. It included my hats #60 (or 61?) to 65 (or 66?).
Meanwhile, I heard from TLC in Kalamazoo, MI that there have been many busy hands in that area, making (knit, crochet, sewn) hats in honor of Elizabeth D in Charlotte, NC and her mom (MS in Kalamazoo).
I received today (6/8) photographs of many wonderful hats made in Kalamazoo. They are being shipped directly to Oklahoma. Please come see the photographs!
To my delight I received a second Thank You note from the Choctaw Nation Head Start today. Please read it. I assure you that you'll immediately want to get your knitting needles, crochet hook, or sewing machine and start stitching!
I figure that soon --- when the Choctaw Nation Head Start receives the hats from Kalamazoo --- the 310 Hats goal will EASILY have been met.
When I got home from my morning errands, I had a bag of hats from Linda T and her friend Emma (Holliston, MA) on my doorstep. They are the first few of the next group of hats!
It has been an honor and a pleasure to be part of such an endeavor.
Blessings and gratitude to each and every person who has participated!
[I have resumed my regular knitting for Saint Francis Knitters. I may post those pictures, just in case any one is interested.] I still owe you pictures of the latest hats from Linda T and Emma, plus pictures of the hats E1 has made and shipped.
- humbly and gratefully, E2
