    Knitting, crocheting, sewing
  1. Roll Call!! All respond please by end of Nov

    I haven't been active for quite a while. I tore something in my knee a year and a half ago and still dealing with that. 2 years ago dr. found that I have a quite serious heart defect that became evident after some things went wrong with it. Feb. of 2016 I had a stroke. All in all life has been very challenging. Oh, 2 years ago I developed arthritis in my shoulders. Needless to say I haven't been knitting or crocheting. I really hope HAIN will continue to be a blessing to those who need the help and encouragement. I have really missed taking part. I really used to enjoy the Adopt a Need, it really helped me focus. If I ever get to the point that I can make things again, I will be very happy. Praying for all involved that this group will continue with renewed vigor and enthusiasm. Warmly, jeaniel
  2. Annual HAIN Baby Shower March-April

    I haven't been able to be active for some time, but would like to take part by making a baby blanket. Is preemie size o.k?
  3. July 2014 Roll Call

    I haven't been around for quite awhile. Financial situation changed and now I am working nearly full time. Since I have a chronic condition to deal with as well, I just haven't been doing any charity work at all.....and it doesn't feel good at all. I keep hoping things will get better, either finanacially or healthwise, so I can get back to doing what I love. Gentle warm huggz to all, DJ in MI's U.P.
  4. Sack Hats

    They are adorable. I love crocheting little hats. They go so fast and are so cute when they are done. Huggz, DJ in MI's U.P.
  5. July & August Challenge: Beanie Bash!

    I will join this challenge. I love making these little gems. Huggz to all, DJ in MI's U.P.
  6. July Roll Call

    I'm here, just hanging on. 8-) Trying to get back to participating regularly. Love the challenge name: Beanie Bash. So cute. Huggz to all, DJ in MI's U.P.
  7. Stitchin' Progess

    I have been crocheting with my new yarn. Progess has been slow, but I do have a little cocoon ready to have the ends run in and the ribbons added. I also have a hat done and another cocoon started. My work is piling up, so time to crochet is limited, but I am determined to get back to actively taking part in HAIN. It is finally summer here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and there are lots of distractions. I have a bag set up with my HAIN project and when time permits I grab it and do a few more rows. I find that even tho time is limited, it is best not to let it stop me completely from working on my projects. If I wait for long periods of time to work on it, I will never work on it. Bit by bit the projects get done. There is always a need for whatever I get done, that's for sure. I still haven't had any success at posting pictures here, I've got to find some time to look into how to do that. till next time......DJ in MI's U. P.
  8. Gettin' Stitchin'

    Thanks for the input, Diana. I will get started making hats with it for the Childrens Challenge this fall. DJ in MIs U.P.
  9. Gettin' Stitchin'

    I hope to increase my participation in HAIN activities. This blog should help with that. I recently received 3 really big skeins of yarn to use for the project of my choice. I choose HAIN. One of the skeins is camouflage print, tho. I'm not sure if that is appropriate for baby hats. If we do the winter challenge for childrens hats for 2013, maybe I can use it for little boys hats. I moved here 2 yrs. ago and still have most of my yarns and such in boxes. I really need to get busy and use some of the supplies that have been lanquishing for all this time. I hope we will have some challenges that will help get me going on HAIN projects. I will post some pics as I finish things....I created a gallery album for that purpose. Now I just need to get busy and finish something to post. till next time.......
  10. Pink & Blue Challenge

    I have been 'un-focused', myself for far too long and need an 'a-long' or something like it to get me moving again for HAIN. Huggz, DJ in MIs U.P.
  11. Boys Outfits

    So cute, I have trouble getting myself to make boy things....I love pink. I will only allow myself to make so many pink things at a time, then I must make some blue(boy) things. Otherwise, I would only do pink and lavender things and that isn't fair. I do more cocoons than sweater type things, so one way I compensate is to make white and then just use pink, lavender, mint green or blue ribbons on them. It also makes it easier to fulfill gender specific requests. I am feeling very overwhelmed right now, had to leave retirement behind and go back to work, and I'm having trouble finding time to take part in HAIN. I miss it. Sorry for the long comment.

  12. I recently received a very nice thank you card from Paula. It says: "On behalf of he enitre L & D staff at the Valley Hospital, thank you for the little baby blankets. Our families and staff appreciate your love , concern and gifts. With deepest regards, Paula." It was so nice to hear that the little things I sent were needed and appreciated. Huggz to all, DJ in MI's U.P. where the snow is still 2 to 3 ft. deep in our yard. Love it!
  13. UFO Challenge

    After moving last year, i have had a hard time healthwise and just haven't done the things I used to do. I feel bad about it, but I am not going to let it hold me down forever. I was finally able to do a few things for HAIN and got them shipped, saturday. Had a lot of things just needing ends run in or ribbon strung. Will post pics and report to Elaine after Thanksgiving. Have a house full right now. I will say that I was happy to have things to send to each of our current neo-natal needs. Huggz to all, DJ in MI's U.P.
