"Mom, why are you watching the news if it makes you sad?" Wise words from Melissa (7). I guess it's an important event, certainly the most covered natural disaster in history so far. My oldest felt the effects in Santa Cruz, where she goes to college. The marina was rocked and many boats crushed and sunk. Luckily the college is high in the redwood mountains.
My heart goes out to all the people of Japan. I'm going to be donating blood next week. I realize it may or may not go directly there, but it will help shore up supplies. I look forward to the day when this is all easier/faster to respond to.
In other news, it's still chilly here in Northern California so I'm going to whip together a few long sleeve tee shirts for Mary (9). Then in the spring I can trim them to short sleeves. I'll be using the Ottobre pattern, or maybe Burda....
In my ongoing effort to clean out, I'm going to be listing a ton of fabric, a Babylock machine, and a beautiful black leather almost brand new Coach computer bag (from the actual Coach store in The Grove in LA), hopefully this coming week. Keep an eye out! I've uploaded them to Picassa but need to price and add the measurements.
Take care all and hug your families on this Sunday.
