  1. There is an organization that does angels for terminally ill and their caretakers. If you are interested here is their web address... www.angelsforhope.org I'm an angel as well. I make the angels, butterflies, etc. I know they can use the extra help and will put you down as making your contributions of angels when you make them. Hope Shelbyville, KY:angel
  2. I would like to plan a gathering of local crocheters soon. I would like to be able to teach people to learn to crochet and in the process help our local Humane Society. They are in need of "snuggles" and the ones we teach, as well as the seasoned ones, can make these snuggles for the cats at the Humane Society. Let me know if anyone is interested. BTW, snuggles are blankets for the cats to lay on. Hope

  8. That is wonderful you got your patterns published. I just received my copy today. I bought it off of Amazon.com. I had a gift certificate. I was a little disappointed with it though. It appears there were a lot of patterns that were published by the editor. I heard others who had patterns published that their yarn was changed as well. Has anyone else have this problem? I was considering submitting for the 2007 calendar, now I'm not so sure. Any thoughts from anyone who submitted and was published, as well as those who submitted and was not published? Hope

  19. Hello All! I found this group from a link sent from a member of a discussion group. I am from Shelbyville, KY and just moved here in May 2005 due to my husband being relocated with his job. We were in the Pittsburgh, PA area previously. I love it here in Kentucky. It seems so peaceful and the people are so nice. I enjoy crocheting anything. I especially enjoy making small items due to getting the self-satisfaction of completing something. Nice to meet you all and hope to be chatting with you all. Hope Shelbyville, KY
