Dear Survival Straps,
Two weeks ago I linked up with some friends from college as we all got together with our girlfriends to do a rafting trip (unguided) down the Delaware River. Looking back on it now, we were grossly unprepared. The mood was very relaxed and everyone was having a great time. That is, until our raft hit a few rapids and split apart on top of a rock in the middle of the river. After examining the damage for the next 5 or 10 minutes, a nasty, fast moving thunder storm rolled in with Lightning bolts flashing across the morning sky. I unwrapped my Firefighters survival bracelet and began to MacGyver two sections of the raft back together. She wasn’t pretty, but she was much better than she was and it held up long enough for us to book it out of there before any of us got struck out in the open.
Thank you survival straps for keeping my friends safe!

So for our fire department’s auction that is tonight..in about an hour actual…my brother asked me if i could come up with a pattern for a Maltese Cross. After a few hours of crocheting, and pulling them back out, i came up with these. 
We’ll find out tonight how well they go over. (we’re hoping they’ll be big sellers, because there are only two, period. lol.) anyway, wanted to share with you guys. :)
