The Weekly Stitch

Happy Halloween! Hope your Halloween was filled with lots of treats - especially chocolate covered ones! By the way, if you find your goodie bags filled with too many leftover treats, my son's school, Valley Creek, collects candy and distributes it to local nursing homes, fire stations, and various other places in exchange for free shoe certificates (donated by local dentists, then given to local children in need). This is a great program and fantastic way to get rid of all of the extra sugar. Let me know if you would like to help by donating candy and I will pick up.

Here is what is happening with YOH this week:

Meeting Locales
Finch Elementary
I am happy to report that we had a great first week at Finch Elementary knitting/crochet club! We had 10 excited girls and 5 teachers! Yes, God is good and He provided the teachers that we so desperately needed. Now, if you are thinking about helping or volunteered to help but didn't this first week, we can still use your help. It would be great to have enough teachers that we could rotate. I also know that we will have more girls to join the group and some teachers that can't teach every week. So, off to a great start but we can still use YOUR help!

Current Projects
  • Chemo caps and scarves for both adults and children - donated to Texas Oncology McKinney, UT Southwestern in Dallas and MCCH oncology unit.
  • Blankets for MCCH - either a child-sized blanket or 12 x 12 squares to combine into a blanket for them.
Love you all,
