You may or may not have seen news of a tragic accident out there in Blogland. I just discovered it whilst browsing blogs 10 days ago or so. Stephanie of NieNie Dialogues and her husband Christian were involved in a light airplane crash in Arizona and are now in hospital receiving treatment for serious burns, this treatment could last months and with 4 young children....out there in blogland some serious help is going on.....
Her sister Jane keeps updates on her website and there are lots of auctions and sales going on to raise money to support both Stephanie and Christian's medical treatment and to support the 4 children. A specific website has been set up - NieNie Recovery - where you can find out about all the fund-raising. It is truly amazing to see the support out there - Design Mom has a list of 165 auctions that have been going on.
I have decided to take part in an online Etsy sale being organised by Morgan over at One More Moore. She will host the sale at her Etsy store on the 23rd and 24th of September. There will be some amazing things on offer and I have offered up one of my little felt, hand embroidered baby blankets. I am just not sure how much I should charge - I was thinking $30 - does that seem too much? I want it to sell but not to undersell if you get my drift.
The blankies are made with lambswool pre-felt, felted in the washing machine, hand embroidered using DMC threads, with a handle, some tags, lift up flaps....revealing a small nest in the tree and a worm in the apple. They are soft and cuddly, a perfect small comforter for a child - approximately 25cm x 30cm.
