Whaaat?  5 months away!  Say it isn't so.  Seems like it just around the corner, though it is so hot here that I can't quite believe it.  

Knitting more baby goodies for a new crop of wee ones in our group.  My friends and I are all making our favorite things.  jacket-Narmada, mitts-Myra, booties-Gabi, hat-me

This is set 1...2 more to go!  Smiley

Congrats Ranty!  She is lovely!

Sharing some buttons that Lana has been making for NLM, NHGRI, and for our Kumu.  Lana was able to donate $130 to DM from these.

We also baked up a storm for Lana's teachers (10 banana breads -me and chocolate thumbprint cookies -Lana), but alas no pics.

Finally a few new things to share!
These are moon pendants made from vintage watch faces and highly detailed metal stamped moon faces.  Each is backed with a metal disk which gives it a nice weight.  I made these for my craft fair on Sunday, but wanted to offer them to you guys too.  I love them, hope you do too.

I need to earn 2 points.  Smiley

Amazing goodies!!!

Hold one to your hats though it's my time to share...

So I got this wonderful box of goodies from LeapFeetFirst.  It was wrapped in pretty paper that Melanie printed for me (sorry can't show them because I used it to wrap up a little present for Averia's daughter.  Smiley 

When I unwrapped it guess what I found?
A lovely, beautiful, amazing snake greeted us!  He's the perfect replica of Lana's snake Mo'o...her corn snake.  Smiley 

Now Lana can take big Mo'o everywhere!

But wait there's more....
Wonderful handspun yarn!  Those of you who know LFF, know that her handspun is legendary!  This is so lovely!!!  And yes, these are the leftovers.  She spun this up to make Mo'o!!!!

And if that weren't enough LFF made us some lovely cards with her new gelli pad!

Thank you Melanie for all the wonderful goodies.  You really spoiled us!  Smiley

Hi all!

This Friday we had our STEAM/DM Auction.  All the handmade goodies were loved as usual! 

The knit/crocheted items were a big hit this time around.  The sewn stuff not so much.  I don't know if there is any rhyme or reason to it all. The handmade cards were a big hit too.  The jewelry which usually does really well didn't this time around.  Oh well.  The great thing about all these goodies is that I can store them for the next event!  Smiley 

But here is the exciting news....we made over 5K!  Smiley  It couldn't have come at a better time since we are gearing up for the food distribution!!!  And I fear that our van (old) is on its last legs.  It is over 16 years old and from the rewiring Bryan discovered he thinks that it was used to power and haul a trailer.  Today it wouldn't start and he ended up having to rent a vehicle to take them to their convention site visit.  This isn't the first time that this has happened. I am hoping that he'll consider getting another van soon.   

Here is Lana getting set up to make buttons.  I didn't get a good action shot, but you can see Always' machine and some of her preprinted button offerings.  They do well, but the kids really enjoy creating their own images.

We are now gearing up for Global Youth Service Day on April 22.  I'll share Lana's button design for that once it comes together.  Smiley

Thanks again to all of you for helping us!  You all have truly made a difference.

Just wanted to share that our partnership with Wegmans is a go!  I signed papers on Saturday and our first food distribution to the needy in Takoma Park/Silver Spring MD will be on April 8th!  

We also purchased this to do the deliveries.

You can read more about it here as well as see our GoFundMe page.  Smiley

We also need to get coolers and a portable refrigerator for the perishable items and bins to transport the food.

The auction will definitely help pay for these items.  Thanks so much all for your continued support!!!

hearts, crocheted eggs (oops forgot the egg hats), mirror, and lots of cards!  Smiley

And mind you I'm only showing samples of all the awesome.  

Bea, thank you again for your amazing donations!   The kids are really going to have fun with the smaller items you sent and I'm sure your larger pieces will do well in the auction.  DM is lucky to have a friend like you!!!  So am I!

And thank you to all the rest of you for crafting for us!  Smiley

I'm hoping to squeeze in some crafting for the auction as soon as I can.  I already have some jewelry pieces done, but I am hoping to make a scarf or two.  Lana is going to put one of her shibori scarves in the auction.  Smiley
