Since all of these kits were purchased by me :-), donations toward the material would be appreciated even if you are just working on a step or two of completion. Many of you are purchasing the kits and making them from scratch, and many of you donated money or material for someone in the group to make the blankets. The blankets that were made from donated money or material have already been completed and posted on the Homemade Products page. I think that I have notified everyone that donated as to which blanket is "theirs." If I didn't let you know, please contact me so I can tell you which one will be donated in your name. We are going to try to wait until November and make one HUGE donation to the Star of Hope. I think that will be so much FUN! If you need a tax receipt before that time, please let me know.
We have really been building momentum with our groups, and I know it will slow down a little in the summer with all of the trips everyone has planned. Please remember that we can only have the large, fun groups like last week if everyone tries to attend. That's what makes them so much fun.
Check the Book Blog for the June book pick. We are reading what we think will be a nice summer book for June. I picked it up at Kroger for 25% off in paperback. Also, check out the new video posted on the Homemade Products page. I tried to get photos of most of the members, but missed about 6-7. I will add them to the video when I catch up with you.
We are super enjoying our new player piano. We pick a different category of music each night and just listen for an hour or so. It is fantastic! Maybe I don't need to take lessons :)
Our newest member of the family is fitting right in and has been moved over by the window. Next step is the first introduction to Rascal - we will try that this evening if they haven't already introduced themselves by the end of the day. They are so cute together. See photo. Rascal is yellow headed one on the left, and Maggie is new one on the upper right - I guess she is trying to establish that she will be the boss!
Hope everyone has a great week.
