We arrived home last night from our Thanksgiving trip to Florida. We had a wonderful visit with our family and I even found some quiet time for working on my “good deed” projects. Here’s one of my completed efforts.
There was a great post on the Simple Sparrow blog about her goal to crochet one square a day in achieving a completed granny blanket. She calls her plan “Just One Square.”
Following her cue, I set a goal to make knitted washcloths for women in domestic violence shelters—just one square at a time. I made a little stack and mailing them from Florida to one of the coordinators for the Loves Many Cloths group I told you about in my Crafty Blessings for Others post.
Here’s one of the washcloths I’ve completed using one of the group’s patterns—hands holding a heart.
As I worked on my various good deed projects over the Thanksgiving holiday, I considered whether my little offerings actually make a difference in the world. My mother-in-law and I talked about this and why I feel it’s important. We decided it’s in the trying and the sharing of our hearts in even the tiniest ways that a difference truly is made.
