Lynette Joe's project entries are:
Lynette tells us, "My Grandmother taught me to Crochet when I was around 8-9 years old I think. I made a Granny Square Cushion for my other Grandmother as a gift and that was the only thing I made at the time. I picked it back up around 6 years ago after being inspired again while being my Mothers Support Person while she was having treatment for Breast Cancer. We spent 6 weeks sharing a house with a lovely couple Ray and Janice, (sadly Ray lost his battle with cancer a couple of months after finishing his treatment) Janice pulled out her hook and yarn when at "home" and I thought I can do that, so once we were home I googled how to crochet, then a "how to crochet" series came out at the book stores and the rest is history."
She shares with us, "I love to create, it still amazes me what you can make with just a hook and yarn. I LOVE the smiles when the person I have crocheted something for puts in on or plays with it, that is the only payment I would ever need in the perfect world. Crocheting is also a HUGE part of my Pain Management Plan too. I have a chronic Pain Condition CRPS and crocheting relaxes me, its my way of meditating really and without it, I wouldn't have much of a life at all. I do need to get up and have a walk around when I need to so I don't get too sore from sitting, but that's just routine now."

She also confesses, "Frankly said: I've been struggling with depression since 2013 and crochet is keeping me whole. Crochet helps me focus and slow down and it's pure pleasure. I love the pleasure, the silent pride and bone-deep satisfaction of creating things with my own hands, watching these things come about and grow and turn out into something I can hardly believe I made it myself."
