In the Arena:
Heartland Knits Podcast/Vickie....Felted Mitten challenge...I’m trying to collect 50 pairs of felted mittens to assemble into a mitten tree and distribute to the Day by Day Warming shelter, the homeless shelter in town. The most need is probably for men’s mittens so pastel type colors might not be the best, but sizes can vary. They can be a quick to knit project and use up odds and ends if they’re striped. Originally I was going to run it until Labor Day but may let it go into September in order to get more participation. Sadly, I have not promoted it very well. I have two prizes lined up for it, a pair of fixed Signature Size 6 (4mm) needles and a skein of Wollmeise Twin. 
Meliabella is walking again this September 8th in the 25th Annual Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. She is walking in memory of her teammate Tina’s daughter Emma, who passed away last August at 7 years old from Neuroblastoma. She is required to raise a minimum of $300 in order to walk.

  1. aw.. Sorry to hear about Fugi ( Sp) ..I wish this had not happened for your family.
    I know it's hard when that pet has become a member of the family.. my husband & I cried like babies when we had to put our beloved Charlie down ON our youngest daughters 13 b-day no less.! but she was strong knowing the old sweetie was just as his end .
    thankfully you were led to a wonderful hospital for her.
    I will keep you in my prayers .
    Our Savior is always there for us. we just have to ask & believe.

    1. side note , My profile pic is of 'The Duchess " & believe me she felt she was the Duchess in no uncertian terms ..LOL
      . she was a well loved old kitty when she passed ..
