Soft Preemie Hearts...
A short while back I shared about sewing fabric hearts for The Preemie Project and you can see my post here. I have now sewn more hearts and mailed them to the foundation. I used the softest vintage fabrics I owned that were appropriate. This time I only made the 8 inch size.
Here you can see the hearts I just mailed along with a hand written post card I received for the last batch of hearts. Linda, the President took the time to let me know she got the hearts and how grateful the project is. I have also heard from Linda via email that these hearts pictured have been received safe and sound. She also let me know that they have had an overwhelming response and are well stocked with fabric hearts. I can now put this project on the completed list as they are not in need of any additional hearts for a long time to come.
As this is the very last day of September I am happy to report that we have just had a slight sprinkle of rain. Nothing measurable once again and not even enough to wet all the ground. However it shows that we are not forgotten by the rain gods. Hopefully they are testing us before El Nino is released soon. We are ready and able to soak up tons of rain water so let the heavens pour down on us. Not Ark proportions but at least lakes and dams amounts. Thank you Mother Nature.
Mr. C and I continue to slowly put the downstairs back in order which also involves the upstairs due to my loading up the Library with stuff. We are tackling the bare walls down the freshly painted hall on the lower level. Pictures are tricky. I have decided all the orphan oil paintings I owned previously will not go back up as they really do date back to the 1970's and my lack of income and apartment living. It will be interesting to see what we decide as we muddle through. Our home is very traditional and we rather like it that way. We are not chic or uber hip and definitely not trendy!
I think I see another large donation truck being called for pickup again.
With October 1st almost here I am feeling like I need to make a list and get busy prioritizing what needs to get accomplished. From now right on through the end of the year time seems to go faster and faster like a run-a-way train. I am already seeing count-downs to each holiday and it makes me feel rattled. This year I would like to remain calm and carry on with my best ability put forward. Creative Bliss My Friends. P.S. I do try to reply to each of your comments however many of you are "no reply" and I find it difficult to track down an email for you. I am truly grateful for each of your visits and the time you take to leave me a comment. Blessings and Sweet October Days...
