September

A ton has happened to our little family in the last month. We moved to California in August, have been in our house almost two weeks and we're in a never ending state of unpacking. Eli started school three days after we got here and Hudson started a preschool co-op last week. Maggie just had her first birthday on the ten year anniversary of 9/11. She's everything I thought a girl should be and more. I don't think I'll ever get use to screaming as a reflection of joy. I always come running to see what's wrong, but no, nothing's wrong she's just happy. I just got my sew room/nook set up and am ready to get sewing for sanity. I got online to find a project. I found one and more. I came across a website called crafthope.com . They have a new project every so often where they make something to give back. Right now they're doing a stocking drive, where they are collecting handmade stockings to give to the tornado surrivers and families. It has to be done September 23. I know I'm joining late in the game but am super excited. I always see these horri le things that people go through and feel so blessed, always wishing I could do something for them. I feel like this is my way to give back using my talents to create something for someone else. Next sewing project... Stockings!
