My NaNoWriMo Word Count: 14,637 words thus far!

While I am enthusiastically embracing November’s NaNoWriMo project and my fingers are flying across my keyboard hour after hour, other things also demand my attention.

Yesterday I fulfilled a promise I’d made to make little eye masks for babies in Neonatal Intensive Care Units.

I thought I’d share this project with you in case you’d like to help, too. The heartbreaking but inspiring story may be found at My Baby’s Bling blog where you can find the easy tutorial and pattern for making the masks.

My masks are made in honor of Ireland Rose Brady whose presence in the world was far too brief.

My word, that's a lot of words! (Har Har). Those masks are really cute -- what a wonderful thing to do!

Good luck with the writing June!

Those masks are darling, think I'll try my hand at making some too.

The story of Ireland Rose was so touching...

Wow, you are really typing away at NaNoWriMo!! I'm incredibly impressed June.
I love these darling little eye masks you've made. I'll go read about it once I send this.

Bridgett said... are really cranking those words out, girly! Way to go.

I'm one of those people who ponder over each word. One sentence can take me ten minutes. LOL I'd really have to let that go if I do this next year. :)

Those eye masks are adorable. And I just love the name Ireland.
