A Great Success

I want to thank Annette Jansenius, administrator, Amber Gullet, head nurse and last but not least Cindy Brock, Quality of Life for their warm welcome to this Loves Gal. The outpouring of love for these ladies was readily apparent. I am planning to take some cloths to them and hopefully start some kind of time together teaching crochet.

My delivery today July 15, 2008 was at the Coutyard Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Marianna FL. The ladies had a really good time and I was so blessed by seeing them. Ten bears were given away. One went to a young man who loves FSU and he received a bear with the FSU colors.

BJ was so excited that she found it hard to choose.

Mrs Pope wanted a soft fuzzy bear and she is so happy with hers.

Ms Eva went right to the bears and chose hers. Can't you see how much she loves it.

Ms Eva will be 100 years old in August 2008. She went canoing yesterday. She is more brave than I.

First Florida Delivery Ready

I am really excited about today. I will be going to the Courtyard at the Mill Pond in Marianna FL for our first FL delivery of our Cuddle Bears. These are donated by Loves Many Cloths Cuddle Bear Memory Care Program, for which I am a coordinator along with our group owner Dana Jonsgaard and Debra "Lovey" Rogers. Dana delivered the first set of bears to Adith Miller & Roger Metz Memory Care in Winnona MN and Lovey is working on 102 for her local nursing home in Eberta AL. We are hoping that this program takes off. Oh by the way we are looking for bear makers, so if you knit or crochet please consider joining us at Loves Many Cloths.
Be sure to check out all the gifts from the heart that we make at our website

A New Pattern

I tried a new pattern for my bears. This is knit a lot like the granny's favorite dishcloth. With worsted weight I think it might be easier. I used Moda Dea Tweedle Dee. I ran out of yarn just before finishing and decided that I didn't need to buy another skein at $7.95 since I got this on sale. So he looks like he has a broken arm. I may make more of these since it is quite easy.

Our Lake House

We traded in our camper for one a bit bigger. We could actually live in this one. It is a 31ft. Sprinter by Keystone and has a bunch of storage for a camper. We have it parked at our favorite spot, Emerald Lake in Colquitt GA.

Jerry is working for the owner and we can keep it there with no problem. The spot is really nice with lots of grass and wonderful neighbors. Jerry will soon be doing the cooking on the weekends and he is really looking forward to it. We love our lake house.....a home away from home. And the girls love it too. I can't believe that they behave when not on their leash. They stay right in the area and Lucy plays with the neighbor's Pomeranian and another neighbor's Cocker Spaniel. Molly has yet to be that brave.
