Well I have been tring to get this blanket ready to give to my grandmother , well my step-grandmother but she is the only grandma I know so we drop the step.... I have all the squares done but have beenso lazy to get the borders done and sewn on my grandma has been real sick has dialysis 3 times aweek so I better get going on this blanket dont want anythiing to happen and I have never given her the blanket that has been ment for her . So here we go onward and up ward we start tomarrow to get those borders on just have to cut the borders and sew them on so I can have the top done and then go to Joanns fabric to buy the backing and put it together doesnt sound like alot but it is and well its not like I got other things that i have to do during the day . SO wish me luck on finishine with in the next month I hope my grnadma will be 85 in Sept so I want to get it finished way before then. Oh and also I have a blanket that i am workiing on for my grand-daughter and I havent gotten that one finished yet and she is 16 mons old .. oh man am I behind... was hoping to get that one done by her 1st birthday well that didnt happen. so we are tring to get it done some time before her 2nd birthday in august. I need some help lol.....

March In Like a Lion and out Like a Lamb

So its March how this year has started to fly by. Well I am tring to get motivated on creatin some of my items but just cant for the life of me. and I am a bit frustrated Etsy.com hasnt really worked for us and so disappointing. I am now tring to do ebay with thrift store finds and doing fairly well with that but not making tons of money. I need a better way of putting out our items on the market and with little moeny dont have much to use on websites and listing items without selling them. So what to do what to do...... Notsure looking for some great ideas

Thinking of sewing for charity at least I feel like I am doing something useful have found this great charity www.littledressesforafrica.org really loved this one you make pillowcase dresses for orphans or t-shirt dresses for the teen girls and also you can make "britches for boys" for the young boys and teens boy and I am going to bring this up to my church ladies and have sent a message to a friend for her Girl Scout troop and see if they are interested . iam thinking of going to our local school who still have Home Ec classes and see if the teachers are interested in having thier students make some at least for one semester to donate.

There are so many other charities I would love to get involved in but need to do so much more research and to see if I really agree with their missions.. and ot make sure who they intend to give the items to really get them... I do implore you if you are interested in the charity above do make some great little dresses for these lovely little girls who are so delighted in to receive their dresses you can go to the website to see for yourself and see if this is for you ...
