So I'm edging ever closer to finishing the Wonder Woman blanket. Right now I'm on row 240 so probably another 20 hours to go.
However... homeschooling is back on this week and we start to get back in to the swing of a regular routine, so those 20 hours might be coming a little bit at a time, but I'll find them.
So where did this project start?
John and I have been trying to drum up support for Lotus House women's shelter in Miami in various ways.
Lotus House provides a sanctuary for over 500 women and children who would otherwise be homeless. They provide counseling and therapy, live skills and education to help these families heal and grow, to become who they were meant to be. Lotus House works to break the cycle of childhood abuse, domestic violence and homelessness. But the pandemic of the last year has taken an horrific toll on donations of all kinds. Not just money but the everyday gifts that helped them to thrive.
As well as trying to help raise funds (you can help by clicking here) we've also donated some supplies to help the women and children there learn to crochet themselves, and hopefully find as much joy as it's brought me!
If you'd like to try your hand at this pattern then you absolutely can - everyone who donates to the fundraiser is entitled to a free copy of the pattern - just drop us a message.
Thanks everyone and wish us luck.
