pardon the interruption...

well, i said i was back...and i am.  i am all ready to write part 2 of our adventures in nyc--but something caught my eye that i wanted to share first.

you might notice a new 'button' on the side of my posts...the one that says 'craft hope for the earth'.  i have written about craft hope before.  check it out for more info.  but i wanted to share with you the next project...project 8:  Gulf Coast Oil Spill.  this project is something everyone can do...you do not even have to sew or craft--just know how to use scissors {i am assuming that my readers have completed kindergarten successfully}.  in a nutshell, we send washrag size {10" x 10"} pieces of cotton cloth {old sheets or out-grown tshirts cut up, for example or in keeping with the nature of craft hope, something handmade} in sets of 10 or 20 with a bottle of dawn dishwashing liquid.  these rags will be sent to "The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, the Audubon Nature Institute, and the Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge to assist them in their efforts in caring for and cleaning oiled marine mammals, mostly dolphins, other marine mammals, birds, and sea turtles."  you can read all the details here.  this is a great project to do with kids, city groups, friends...the deadline is july 3rd but that is always flexible.  here are some pictures of sets already turned in--

won't you join me in helping out?
