San Diego Wildfire Blanket Project

While listening to the news on the television, many of us are touched and saddened by the loss from the wild fires in the Southern California area. Many people you talk to have family and friends in the area. Living on the East Coast, I can only imagine the Santa Anna winds or the danger from fires, earthquakes or mudslides. Yes, we have hurricanes, but where I am at, we are rarely effected by them (rather than a lot of rain). I wanted to help, and the best way I can is to use my own hands and my yarn! Anyone reading this, if you want to help, please visit the blog: to get more information. Please see the button I borrowed on the right! I plan to spend this whole weekend making 8 inch Granny Squares for this blanket project. I hope the people who receive them will know that the rest of the country is thinking and praying for them in their time of loss. God Bless America!!

Random Act of Kindness

I was in the local crafts store today, checking out some new yarn and wishful thinking. As I was leaving, I happened to notice a "mod" Christian cross on a long chain, hanging by the register. When I asked how much it was, the lady in line behind me, with whom we'd been having a conversation said "I want to buy that for you, NO ARGUMENTS". Being a "giver" type person myself, I knew not to argue with her and I just repeatedly said "Thank You". I'd never met her before, maybe I'll never see her again. But there are a lot of kind people left in this world, and I met one of them today. I've been going thru a very bad time lately, I guess it shows. I thank God for people like Laura.
