Giving my obsession with the health care fiasco a break,
I needed something else to jam into that space in my mind.
It is not really working yet,
I am really trying to make them all think it is working.
I am taking up some other obsessions.
Crazy quilt blocks for one.
Since having to give up all the wool
or live with the itching,
I needed another stitching project.
These fit the bill!
Creative and fun.
Collecting and planning for the trip to Haiti.
I leave for Haiti on the 17th of November.
Hopefully and Prayerfully,
a promise kept.
Six years ago,
I promised to return and teach calligraphy to the students
at the EBAC orphanage.
Why would I do that?
Make that promise?
Life has been in the way since
I did not know if I would be able to keep that promise.
So, the door is opened and
I am sewing dresses and skirts and shorts to take with me,
collecting formula to take along,
some baby clothing
lots of brushes, paints, pens, papers and books.
I will be brushing up on my calligraphy skills soon!
(I am still formulating a plan to take some screenprinting
supplies, but JWS does not know that yet, shhhhh)
Thanks to some awesome benefactors,
I will be able to supply the students with some great supplies!
Also doing a little crocheting.
And some knitting.
And yesterday's slide through Goodwill produced this book.
Hopefully this finally answers all of my Mary/Martha questions!
