Crocheting Hats for the Homeless

While I've been recuperating from my 10 days in the hospital I eventually had enough energy to begin crocheting again.  So I picked up a crochet hook and began on my project of making hats for the homeless in our town.  
 These are a few of the hats - so far I've made around 70 hats this year.
 I decided to make some pom-poms from some of the hats with the little scraps of leftover yarn.  And then some of my bears decided that they needed to wear hats, because they are sick and need to go to the doctor. They think they get candy when they go to the doctor - silly bears.
 The moose is the doctor - he has a badge and a shiny sequin stethoscope.   
 Buddy E, the frog, is the nurse and he hops about taking care of the "patients"  He thinks he gets candy for taking care of patients.
The bears finally took off their hats after a very long wait at the doctor's office, and went in search of some candy - I can hear them rummaging around in cupboards and drawers - oh well.

You are so sweet to make things for those less fortunate. And your teddy bears are just precious. Which one would I hug first? Have a good day my friend. Take care of yourself always!!! Hugs!
