Artworks 2011

This year Daniel participated in the 29th year of Artworks. It was held at Sequiota Elementary School. He signed up for Hold Everything with Susan E. Rich and Bobble Head Blast with Michelle Mathers. He had a lot of fun for nine days and I believe everyone who went had a great time being creative as you can see by just a fraction of other items pictured. I also had to post some of the amazing artwork on the walls of the school. It's one of the nicest looking schools I've ever seen:~D

Something For Warmth For Warriors

Grandmother's Favorite cloth pattern is what I will be using for these cloths using Peaches & Creme in the Pagentry colorway. I intend to send about a dozen to Warmth For Warriors. They are requesting 100% cotton cloths until August 31. They are also requesting 100% wool caps. I will be sending a couple of those too.
I found out about this group when knitting in public. Another knitter shared her enthusiasm for her cause. It's so cool how things like this work out. There are no coincidences:~D

Something For Newborns In Need

This round blanket measures approx. 38" in diameter. I used Loops & Threads Snuggly Wuggly mini dots in Rain Drops colorway, the blue is Lion Brand Yarn Baby Soft in the Bluebell colorway, and the green is Loops & Threads Snuggly Wuggly Baby Sport in the Fresh Green colorway. The usual US6 dpn and circular needles were used.

A Little Bit Of Help For Joplin

After the terrible event May 22, 2011, of the tornado in Joplin, I bought a little more cotton and knit up 21 cloths and put them with Ivory soap in baggies to donate to our local American Red Cross for their comfort kits. I'm currently working on a round blanket for our local Newborns In Need and have a light blue blanket that is intended for a bereavement blanket that's almost halfway done. So much I want to accomplish but it's just one stitch at a time anyways.
Our family and some friends worked a few days at the Convoy of Hope warehouse (HUGE! 300,000 square feet= seven acres. Reminds one of the warehouse the Ark of the Covenant was hidden in Raiders of the Lost Ark) for a couple of hours for four days. They have open volunteering every Tuesday 6:30-8:30. We may go again but we have other things going on right now. SEAS (Saint Elisabeth Ann Seton) is having their garage sale which ends today.
Michael has summer school and Daniel has a couple of weeks worth of art classes coming up. I will be a busy mom.
There's been an incredible outpouring of kindness for those in Joplin. I hope as the months and years go on we won't forget to, at the very least, send up some prayers for their recovery. We do not journey this life alone. Let us always be of thankful hearts and open to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Amen!
