We had a very nice Mother’s day. It started out as any Sunday, cleaning and shopping.

Then I was off to play with the Yarrrn Club at InsaniTea!! I worked on cross stitch, as it is something I can do left handed.

At 4pm, when the fiber fun was over, Doug and the girls showed up. We had a little tea party. The Yummy Berry tea that Ingred served up was, well, YUMMY!!!! I had to buy some to bring home. The girls played the little bongo drums and a guitar and danced around between cups. It was a lovely time.

Then the four of us walked around a bit. It was a gorgeous day! Eventually we stopped and had a wonderful outdoor dinner at Raymond’s. They have a wonderful menu with both vegetarian and meat dishes. I have to remember them next time I have veggie guests!

Finally we crossed the street and grabbed some dessert to go from Cupcakes Galore. Kyla got an Elmo cupcake, and Vada got Hello Kitty.

They are my girls, alright. The first thing they did was eat the eyes. Mmmm.

Well, with the launch of Craft Hope Project 13, my little NJ apartment is about to get a lot smaller and a lot bigger at the same time.

Smaller due the massive amount of handmade blankets that will soon start arriving on my doorstep. All to warm the hearts and the nights of those affected by the Alabama tornadoes.

Bigger with the hope and love those blankets will provide.

I look forward to each and every blanket.

The text here will be short, one handed typing is no fun.

I couldn’t resist taking this picture one morning just before Easter. The girls were just too adorable.

I first told you about this crazy guy over a year ago. When I started him, there were so many other things I was working on, that he kind of ended up on the back burner. Life took hold and he spent most of the last year yearning for my attention. If you remember,the hexagon blanket was for Vada, and the octagon is Kyla’s. She was very happy to finally have her “banket” done. (more…)

Bracelets!!!! Craft Hope Project 12.

I am happy to say that the lovely Jade of Craft Hope has announced Project 12! Bracelets for Russian orphans. Imagine the thousands of bracelets we can make together. It seems like such a small thing. Heck, my three year old’s will help me make a few this week. However, it is so much bigger then many of us can see. Many of these orphans feel as though they are worthless ~ as though no one cares about them. Something as simple as a handmade bracelet can change that. They will know that somewhere out there in the world is a person who cares enough about them to make this special gift. To experience the kindness of a stranger, some who will get nothing in return, can bring these children the hope they need. So I ask all of you to find at least the time to make one bracelet, though more is great. Do something to make the world a kinder place.

I stumbled upon this website after reading about Project 12. I will be making as many bracelets as I can between now and the deadline in June. I will do my best to post pictures of every bracelet I make, with links to the patterns used for (or that inspired) each one. (more…)
