hello goodbye doll

When going through all of the comments from the Sew Mama Sew contest, I came across a website on someone elses blog, Craft Hope. Now I'm all about hope, our youngest daughters middle name is Hope, her first name is Lili which pretty much means Hope and a lot of time it is hope that gets us through, right? So I click on the Craft Hope badge and it takes me to the most wonderful site. Their motto is "spreading seeds of hope, one stitch at a time." Now this I love!

In their "about" page reads the following, "Craft Hope is a faith-based, love inspired project designed to share handmade crafts with those less fortunate. It is our hope to combine our love for crafting and desire to help others into a project to make a difference around the world."

So their last project was making dolls for children in Nicaragua. Although there were only days left before the dolls were due in, I knew I had to make a doll to send. So here is Lucy. And she is on her way filled with all the love that we could possibly stuff her with. and hope. lots and lots of hope.

Their next project will be announced on June 14th, so please click on the badge over there on the right and I'll be giving updates here as well.

Oh! I love all the beautiful fabric I see on your site. I want to make my first quilt for my little girl. I really like shopping for fabric that has been preselected and put together already, it just makes shopping quick and easy. The beautiful combo of different collections are great. Thank you!
