I just found my friend Alan Osmond's latest YouTube video and had to share it as it just so perfectly says what I feel in my heart and in my soul! Thank you Alan...
Yesterday was our monthly Crafting Angels meeting! We had so much fun, those of us who showed up. We painted all these beautiful wooden toys that my friends Ruth and Gordon cut out all summer long! There must have been 100 of them, and we painted nearly all of those.
I took my camera but do you think I remembered to actually use it?! No.... :(
I can't believe I didn't snap a photo of us in the gym at Church painting all those toys for LDS Humanitarian.
A few sisters also tied 2 baby quilts and I turned in my 10 pairs of mittens I have finished so far, for LDS Humanitarian. I want to make more though.
The need is so great! I could make 100 pairs and it would barely dent the need.
I was just visiting YARN HARLOTS blog (you ever been there?) this morning and noticed her most recent post had 160 comments on it SO FAR! I about fell off my chair. And that's just the people commenting, let alone how many actually go there! If that many people would come here to Bev's little blog, in her very tiny charity crafting universe; and everyone who visited was inspired to make things for humanitarian causes, can you imagine how much warmer the world would be this winter??? =)
Yes, real 'global warming' ... and of a good nature!
Just a 'strange' thought running through my sleep deprived brain today.
News from the Humanitarian Center in Salt Lake City. I wrote to ask if hat and mitten SETS were needed and the answer is that they receive so many hats that they prefer we work on the MITTENS and not both. I am sure any mitten we send in, they will be able to find a close enough matching hat!! So no hats to LDS Humanitarian please. MITTENS!! YES! Send all you can possibly make or buy if you don't knit or crochet at all.
Well, lots to do today - cleaning, laundry and painting 'chair rail' for my hubby's new office we are fixing up!
HUG THE ONES YOU LOVE!
