I'm back home after an unexpected stay in the hospital due to a complication after a routine surgery. I'm still not allowed to MAKE anything, but if I don't at least TALK some crafty, I'm going to lose my mind! I made two decisions during the last few days that I'd like to share. Remember the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge? I was looking for somewhere to give my donations to. My local Craft Warehouse is accepting them, which I believe they're forwarding to Doernbecher Childrens Hospital. My children's pillowcases will be going there. However, as I stared at the ceiling in the oncology ward of my local hospital, my own bright, flowery pillowcase under my head, the light bulb came on. My husband and I spoke to a couple of nurses and the supervisor, and I'll be donating pillowcases for adults to their department. They're happy to be receiving them from a former patient, and I'm thrilled to be able to give something back to a place where I received such excellent care. I can't wait to get back to my sewing room!
My second decision is that I'm planning to open my own Etsy shop. I'm going to aim for July 1st, but I might start sooner if I'm ready. I've done some research, and I really feel like there's a place there for my style. Lots of reading and research for the next couple of weeks, but I'll keep you posted on my progress!
