OK, now on to the post.
I have three things to report today.
1. It's Dash's little friend's birthday. I made him a cape just like the one I made Dash for Christmas. Except with a C for Cameron, which is his name. Because if I did it with a D, that wouldn't make a ton of sense.
These capes are incredibly satisfying to make. Not too much trouble, but I think they really are lovely and Dash has started to really love his (6 months later).
2. Craft Hope 4 is asking for sock monkeys for young burn victims through the Firefighters Burn Institute & their Little Heroes Preschool Burn Camp. You know, I know I usually do a big spiel here about Craft Hope, but today, I can't. My heart is so broken thinking about babies who have suffered burns that I just start crying when I think about it. I'm crying now. I swear to God. Please, if you have the means, make a sock monkey. They're not that hard and you'll feel incredibly accomplished after. Also, hurt babies will love them and that's really all anyone needs to know.
3. Finally, finally, my girls are starting to have some babies. Our first one is due in November and I made him a quilt. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be making him an insane number of baby things because I have been waiting THREE YEARS for someone to hurry up and HAVE A BABY around here. I have a lot of pent up baby crafting to get out.
