Day 2

These are some of the Barbie gowns that I have crocheted in the past few weeks. I love Barbie since I was 11. About 1960. Mama didn't like them so I learned to make clothes for them. First I sewed them. Then I got some crochet patterns for Barbie.

I joined a Ma's Barbie Group. I found them in a CROCHET magizine. I love the group. I have made some wonderful friends. We exchange Barbie gown once or twice a month.

Each of my daughters had about a dozen Barbie dolls. When they grew up and left home, I got their Barbies. So at last count I have about 400 Barbie dolls who need dresses.

I love to crochet. I make baby afghans for the UofU Medical Center New Born ICU. I also make Chemo caps for the Huntsman Cancer Center. About 4 times a year I drive up and deliver as many as I have made. It is one of the few things I can do to give back for all the good I have received.

My wonderful husband is taking a nap. (My father used to call his "beauty naps.") So this is a good time to write.

I made it for my walk today. I talked to some very nice people who were walking their dogs. Cute dogs.

I did the dishes today and the laundry. I did some crocheting, too.

A young man came by the neighborhood and left a bag with a note about shoes for people in Africa. Any kind, size and condition. So I went into my bedroom and loaded up some to give away. Every little bits helps.

I'm slowly going through stuff in this house to clean up the place.
More tomorrow.
