Can You Help?

As you know, New England, and especially my family's home state of Vermont, was badly hit by flooding from Irene. I've been feverishly contacting family and friends, sending up prayers, learning that my family is fine, tho' one branch has lost the road in to their property and were without power for several days. They have power back, but still the road isn't yet fixed...it will come.

I've sent money along in contribution to agencies helping, friended as many organizations on Facebook and read all their updates, and then, trolling around on Ravelry, discovered that India, of Warm Hats Not Hot Heads fame, was organizing Warm Hats, Warm Hearts to send handknits to folks in Vermont, New Hampshire and Upstate New York who lost everything.

So of course you know, I jumped in and said, COUNT on me.

I've tossed in some Vanna's Choice and the old-standby Seaman's Cap pattern with needles to one of my own drawstrings for the two shows I'm attending. If you've a mind to help, stop by Ravelry and join the group. You can receive the paticulars from India...there are two gals managing this effort. One branch (India's) for the Northern part of VT, NH, and NY. The central and southern parts of VT are under Kelly's watch. If you're interested in helping out and aren't a member of Ravelry? (and just why aren't you?) Then email me and I'll get the contact emails to you...
(((hugs)))

They're in my prayers! I'll check the Rav site for the hat patterns. I can't even imagine.

How's Bernie?

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
