Being Part of Something Bigger Than Me

I am looking forward to participating in the Special Olympics fundraiser tomorrow. It feels like a blessing to me to be able to do something positive and helpful.



After reading various helpful tips about craft fairs, I decided I needed an apron to match the décor for my table tomorrow. I just can’t stand it if I don’t have a theme, even though the items themselves won’t match. I”ll try to remember to get a picture of my table tomorrow as well as some of the other things I made (it’s not only clutches in my little offerings).



The apron is made from home décor fabric which was on sale. It has three huge pockets which will be quite handy during the craft fair. I love the fresh look the stripes give, kind of nautical. The pattern I used is Simplicity 3752.

Please forgive me for not reading your blogs the last couple of days, but once I start exploring your worlds, hours fly by and I don’t get anything done. Today I’m packaging and preparing the last minute details for tomorrow along with making a run to the bank to get “change” money. I shall play catch-up as soon as the Special Olympics event is over. I'm trying ever so hard to do a good job.

Have a very blessed weekend!

June, you are incredible -- and busy. I too will be busier than usual: heading on the road with my writer in residence gig all of next week and part of the one after. I'll try to find some time to visit blogs when I can. I have a few blog posts sitting in my drafts so I can easily go in once in a while and just click "publish". Trouble is, once those are used up, I'll have to get back at it. ENjoy the fundraiser and I hope it makes lots of money!
