It's Official!!!

Check it out at the bottom of the page:

I'm now a chapter coordinator for Project Linus!!! I'm so excited! I've always wanted to make blankets for PL, but there was never a chapter near me, so my friend Noel and I have started our own chapter here locally. I've got a few blankets crocheted and am working on some quilts.

Guess Who??!!!

I'm so sorry that I haven't blogged in over a year!! I have no excuse, but I hope to be better this year! I also didn't keep track of my charity work, but I'm pretty sure that I made my goal. But since I don't have proof, you will just have to take my word for it.

I have had several people ask for the pattern for the ripple bereavement gown. I tried to find the original pattern on the internet, but it is gone. I have a paper copy and would happily snail mail you a copy if you let me know. It is a precious and easy gown. The ribbons coming down near the armholes I added since I wasn't very crazy about the holes that were there from making the ripples. Did that make any sense?

I put all of my almost finished projects on the coffee table till they drive me crazy, then I finish weaving in the ends, and adding ribbons/charms, etc. So in the pile right now is about 5 bereavement gowns, 4 bereavement buntings and I am working on a teenage sized blanket for Project Linus.

I am feeling the quilting itch coming on. I am just learning how to quilt, and will probably just be a beginner quilter for the rest of my life, but that's what I'm comfortable doing, so it's OK with me. When I clear off the coffee table, I will bring out the sewing machine. Too bad that rascally work keeps getting in the way of my crafty productivity!!!

Well, hopefully it won't be a year till you'll hear from me again!!

Love to you all!
