Hope Project Website

I got a surprising response about my therapy Raggedies, some wanting to make their own for donating, so I thought it would be a neat idea to start a blog dedicated to therapy dolls. If you're familiar with the Toy Society, it would be similar to that only you aren't dropping dolls off randomly of course! …

Didn't Get the Borrowed Machine...Got Something Better!

In celebration of our 16th wedding anniversary, my dear and sweet husband told me to forget the borrowed machine and go buy one for myself. After a long day of shopping...I am lucky to have dealers for Bernina, Viking, and Janome all in the same town...I came home really wanting a Bernina but unable to fit what I wanted into our budget. Being a little frustrated and disappointed, I prayed for some guidance. Lo and behold, I happened upon an ad (I love craigslist!) that had just been posted…
