This year’s cancer challenge is especially close to my heart. We were asked to choose a ribbon color and base our color choices on that ribbon. I chose gray in honor of my Nanny who sadly passed away from brain cancer in December of 2005. She is the one who taught me how to crochet and instilled a love for the craft in me at an early age. She was a strong and amazing woman who has always been a huge inspiration for me throughout my life. Aside from being an extremely hard worker, she was immensely creative which I assume is where I get it from. She was a “Jack of all trades” as far as crafts were concerned from crocheting to sewing and everything in between. I cherished my homemade costumes she would whip up for my sister and I from time to time. My goal for my design was to create something unique and special that I knew my Nanny would have loved. If I could sum her up in one word it would be “blessing” because not only was she the most amazing grandmother that a kid could ever hope to have, she has helped to pave my way and shape my future by giving me the gift of creativity. I have met so many wonderful people and done some spectacular things thanks to my crocheting and I feel like I owe every bit of it to her. This hat design dedicated in her memory is my “thank you” to her and I truly hope that this hat will be a blessing to someone who needs it just as she was to me ❤❤❤
