The Bunny has hopped away.

Hello guys today is May the 2nd! Can you believe that?? Wow what a fast year this has been. I would love to say that I have been knocking projects out of the park but then I would be lying. I have been quite the busy bee dealing with family things, sick kiddos and new kittens.. yep new kittens :)


**Errata from video- I got the Lornas Laces not 50% off but I did get it shipped $10 after shipping discount and Rewards.

Project Amigo


Have you heard of Project Amgio? I had never till the first of the year when they contacted my local yarn store Yvies asking if any of the patrons would be interested in making squares.

Project Amigo is a non profit organization that supports students from Colima, Mexico, so that they can create their own educational opportunities and better their quality of life. They have a need for 6 inch squares that will be used for afghans that will be distributed to poor families of the students in Mexico who are being sponsored by Project Amigo.
