Most of you know that Aarene spends a lot of her free time riding her Dragon and writing books and articles. The rest of her waking moments, she occupies her hand by crocheting hats and mitts for friends and charity. She gives many hats out at the homeless encampments she visits. The work is fun, beneficial, and keeps her quiet in mandatory staff meetings.
This fall, she found my trove of retired buttons from my Planet Santa suits and has been adding them to hats as a finishing touch. People are falling in love with the bit of “Santa Magic!” And, my store of buttons is nearly gone.
Aarene asked me to ask you all whether you have any buttons you wish to donate to her hat projects. She promises that they will find perfect homes. If you have old buttons, I can collect them for her at any of the Norpac gatherings this year. I will be at the one tomorrow at Billy McHales.
Regardless, I look forward to seeing you all there!
