Last night I finished the bunny for Lindsay. It's yet another pattern by Jean Greenhowe.

And today I made the cards for Lindsay and her big brother Tanner (all stamps by Posh Impressions). The box containing the toys and cards is all wrapped up and addressed, and will go into the mail tomorrow. I just wish there was more I could do.

I guess the best thing to do when you wish you could to more, is to do more, even if it is for someone else. These mittens are for the Native American Support challenge, Mittnz 2008. Oops! I didn't realize the toes of my Crocs were visible in this photo. Weird. These are the Gifted mitten pattern, in the men's size. Meital calls them the Oven Mitts. They're pretty big, but I hope they will fit someone out there on the Cheyenne River Reservation.

Of course, I've already started another pair of mittens, this time using the gorgeous (handspun?) yarn I received earlier this month. I absolutely love this yarn! It is knitting up in the coolest way. I hope to have a photo for you tomorrow, of at least one mitten. I have to find out if this is indeed handspun, and if so, by whom. Then I need to ascertain whether or not this person sells his/her yarn, and if not why the heck not?!

That ought to keep me busy for awhile.

Anoher fun pair of mittens. Posh Impressions stamps are fun. Do you have any of Dee's videos? She is so creative and you can tell that she was a kindergarten teacher. She gets so excited in her videos.

Such a cute bunny! I love the cute little tummy poking out!

Great Mittnz! Very, very pretty! I've been thinking about some color work, but so far it's just thinking!

The bunny is adorable. Now, whenever I see a hand-knitted toy, I think of you. Love the mittens!

Love the toys and cards for Lindsay and Tanner. You truly are a very special person--which I already knew!
Thank you so much.
God bless you, Miriam
