Christmasy pics from around our city:
WIP Wednesday…on my needles.
I switched it up this week and started using large needles… making a garter stitch throw (in Oatmeal) that will go to charity. There are enough projects my Stitch & Bitch work on, this one is going to: The VA Nursing Home.
A real treat listening to the sweet sounds of : ‘Angelica Women’s Choir’ every Christmas.
The Winter Fest Christmas Market in downtown, White Plains, NY is a Seasonal favorite with reasonably priced crafts, jewelry, gourmet foods. Vendor I love are an Organic tea ‘tea gevity’ and ‘Mind Body & Bath’, I love their handmade soap and essential oils.
I know some folks want to help a family in Puerto Rico but do not know one…well, I do! They are a “family” of my heart, parents with a young 5 y/o boy that you can help. They live in a remote area of the island. I know it will take a lot to recover but I also know every bit will help them. They are a good and hard working family who are not looking for a hand out but will gladly receive any help as they recover from this disaster. Now that the post offices are open in PR folks can receive items.
I will be sending a box(es) soon. I hope to collect over the next few months, through the holidays. One person can help but together we can do so much more. I’m accepting donations of products: items like paper plates/ forks/ canned food items/ soups/ crackers/ dried goods/ hand sanitizer/ cleaning supplies/ trash bags/ TP, paper towels/ clorox wipes/ baby wipes, etc.) or monetary donations, of any amount, you can send a gift to my paypal
No offer is too small – everything is greatly appreciated.
from the White Plains Outdoor Farmer’s Market. It was a nice 7 months of produce and fruit every week. Not seen in this pic is the large bunch of kale and 5 bunches of Cilantro. Last year I chopped and froze enough cilantro to get us through the Winter & early Spring. I will do the same this year.
Newborn size vs teeny preemie size…
Crocheting using Caron one pound yarn & Bernat for accent stripes.
So much smaller than this newborn baby hat
Making a dozen of these for the preemie hat project of my Stitch & Bitch.
In White Plains, NY
I wore one of my mom’s scarves, Green, of course. The day was a little special thinking of how much she would have enjoyed celebrating herself. As we walked to the parade I felt her presence.
The weather was perfect!
Lesson learned – check the jar, and the expiration date before buying Coconut Oil!!
To the credit of Spectrum company they offered to replace the jar. I called ShopRite supermarket in hope that they actually remove the bunch of jars I saw when this was purchased. I’m disappointed that ShopRite allowed this to remain on the shelves.
