Help for Haiti

One of the links and blogs I love is from the www.darngoodyarn.com site on my blog post. Nicole, the owner of this fine business, is offering 5% of every sale of premium recycled silk yarn as a donation to the Red Cross. Please...reach deeply within your hearts and pockets to help the desperate nation of Haiti!

As an aside, Nicole is an amazing philanthropist in that she donates yarn to good causes (read her blog). I know, because she has helped me immensely with the scarves I have knitted for the ladies of the City Rescue Mission. Additionally, she purchases her yarns from countries where women are not exploited, but rather helped. Her blog is fascinating and filled with gorgeous yarns and products from all over the world, and information on her platform to help other women. Get a good cup of whatever makes you happy and check out her website and blog!

Friday Blog

Finally...I have attempted to start my own blog. I am not a technogenius, but I can read, so I figured I may as well try this on for size. There are so many...literally hundreds...of blogs I adore and I wondered what in the world I was thinking. Then, it occurred to me that it might be fun to share ideas, blogs I admire, thoughts, crafts, recipes, music, patterns...life. Not an original thought, but one that justified me starting this blog...at least for me.

What I have to say may not necessarily be verbose each time I post, but it is sincere. I hope that everyone reading this receives a blessing. Have an awesome weekend!!
