I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

To start you need to begin!!!

I believe her name is Lindsay and the little kid I have no idea of his name. This place is called Laguna Grove from the family of the AgeSong Senior Communities in San Francisco, this one is the "Laguna Grove Care Center" . This center deals with Senior citizens and people in hospice. They are in partnership with the Pacific Institue and the Zen Hospice Project. I know that they will be pu to good use and I will be bringing more afghans as long as they take them.

I also contacted Maitri . I will be teaching some of the residents how to crochet for a while.

Since 1987, Maitri has been providing hospice and 24-hour care to men and women living with AIDS. "Maitri," pronounced "MY-tree," is a Sanskrit word that means "compassionate friendship." In this 15-bed facility, skilled professionals and dedicated volunteers offer nursing and personal care as well as emotional and spiritual resources to help meet the special needs associated with HIV-related illness. This non-profit program in San Francisco is focused especially on those who might otherwise be without adequate resources or care.

Sometimes you have to do something to help ease the pain of people. I know that everything is working in the right order and in the right sequence.

May the Gods of Kobol smile on us once more!!!!
