'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

Good afternoon,

I would like to thank Charlotte today for two Crocheted  Granny Blankets. Charlotte has made a brilliant job of making them. They are a great size and will give two Residents a great deal of comfort. Thank you so much for sending them to me Charlotte. I will take them out as soon as I can.
