HUGS FOR HEALING

IMG_3901.JPGDo you have a friend going through chemo? A relative in the hospital? A homebound neighbour? Or know someone going through a rough time?
Ever wished you could do something to help make them feel that they aren’t alone and loved?

Today we introduce a new series of Crochet Alongs. They can be made and given individually or as a set at the end. All are designed to bring a hug and a bit of healing.
“Hugs For Healing” starts next Friday November 3. The first item is a beatiful Prayer Heart designed by Mimi Decluze.

Please take a minute and read Mimi’s biography then head over to Ravelry and check out the supply list so you can garher up your supplies.

Mimi’s bio:
I am an organizational and process consultant specializing in non-profit and church planning and transitions. Creative crafter, bread baker, spouse, grandmother, life-long learner.
I learned crochet in my early teens and I have crocheted many items for family and friends. A few years ago, while rebuilding my consulting business after a move, I was sorting through bins of sewing and craft supplies. One pattern caught my eye – a heart motif. I made a few and liked them. Then a friend lost her father in a tragic traffic accident and another friend was facing a health crisis. One morning I sat down to pray and picked up my thread – the hearts became “prayer-hearts”. I enclosed each heart with this prayer – “May the prayers in each stitch lift you, support you, comfort and heal you.”
Last spring, I was meditating on the complexity of my life, how intertwined it is with others. I picked up my thread and started some freeform crochet in two colors. As I continued it evolved into a somewhat ruffled heart. The next heart was made during Lent with dark and light thread and a more consistent form. This spring color heart was the first time I had really paid attention to the “pattern” I was creating. I am pleased to share this journey and gift with all of you. May these hearts bless you and those you make them for.
Mimi lives on the eastern-shore of Maryland with her husband and near her parents and extended family.
