I’ve been scrambling a bit to finish my last project for Hooking for Good – due partially to the holidays, partially some wonderful out of town visiting with the in-laws, and partially to my never-ending to-do list. Just thinking about it is giving me anxiety.
Luckily, these late nights are a little easier after checking the ol’ mailbox. It’s been full of some pretty heartwarming Hooking for Good happiness. If you’re looking for an excuse to start donating your handmade items, I can say the mail makes it totally worthwhile.
First, I got a letter from Youth Services in Wheeling, which is the current home of the plastic mat I made. I was so touched that they took the time to write me a letter, including the story of one of the residents and a picture of the mat in action (it will be given away when the shelter closes for the season in March).
I also got a postcard from We Are Kenya – I love that they used the word “cozy” to describe the scarves my mom and I made. So sweet!
