Sewing for Joy

This blog is 99% for completely personal gratification...just a place to keep track of projects...although I do love it when people visit!  But this time I am hoping that somebody is out there reading this...

I have a sweet friend who is expecting a little girl who will be born with anacephaly.  To meet her and learn more, visit her blog here.  I've been struggling to know how to help and just saw that there is a paypal account set up in Joy's name to help this good family with some of the costs associated with all the special medical care and the burial plots...any donations in any amount would be so appreciated.

I've been slowing the etsy shop way down but I've got big plans to pick up the pace again for a little while in hopes of raising some money for Baby Joy.  I'll be busy sewing for the rest of the week and will have some wonderful new handmade goodies to show when I reopen August 13.  All proceeds from the shop for the next month or so are going to go straight to the White family.  Thanks for anything you can do to contribute directly, or for taking the time to stock up on baby gifts...and other gifts... and help Joy at the same time.  See you August 13!


I'm starting to feel like a factory making this quilt over and over but I really really like's changed and evolved a tiny bit as I've run out of some fabrics and added new ones.  This is probably the last that will look a lot like this...hopefully it will go fast when I reopen shop August 13, going to a really good cause.
