What Have You Been Up To?

I'm so glad you asked. I haven't been up to much knitting, which is slowly (or rather quickly), becoming a way of life it seems. I HAVE completed several, 4 to be exact, dish cloths. They travel well, can easily be worked on around the pool and "Kitchen & Bath Items" are the projects for A Loose Knit Group for June.

One thing I've been extremely busy with is our church's version of Extreme Makeover. Saturday from 5-8 pm we offered free manicures, pedicures, hair cuts and facials to anyone interested. We also had some wonderful finger foods and many, many awesome door prizes that were drawn for every 15 minutes.

It was awesome!!!! I mean really wonderful. We had 120-125 attendees, the majority of which we had never met before. It was so rewarding hearing people say they had never had a pedicure or manicure before. One lady said it had been 4 years since she had had a hair cut. We so look forward to doing it again. Here is a photo of the majority of out volunteers. They were the greatest. Our group took it's name from the song "Crazy Beautiful" by Chasen.
