Mark Your Calenders!

Attending the Sewing Together party, you will be given a goody bag full of delightful gifts. We will also be having a silent auction with many bestselling books, all signed by the authors. There will be yarn, and T-shirts and handknits sweaters as door prizes. Money raised from the auction will go towards the shipping costs to mail all the blankets to the families. Here are some of the auction items...










All of these books have been signed by the authors and some are not available to the general public till October! You'll be the envy of all your friends!!!!



The Inn @ Va Tech is the location of our Sewing Together Party...call 540-961-4462 for details and to RSVP. Come for as long or as little as you like! Food and drinks provided. Bring your own DARNING NEEDLE and a sense of humor! We need you there!

I couldn't help myself from stealing some pictures off of Runty knits' blog. Hope ya don't mind, Aporanee! The Yarn Barn, in Burke, Va, owned by the lovely Penny (Hugs!) and the gang not only collected squares at the shop, but put them together in an afghan. Such a sweet and kind gesture!



Our square count at Mosaic is around 750 thus far...

Would You Buy Yarn From This Man?



Fortunately or unfortunately, I did.. And lots. David is my successor from KFI, a wonderful, darling of a bald man, who let me follow him out to the car to get free yarn and sweaters for samples. xoxoxox.




New Noro, Debbie Bliss, Araucania, Katia, and Sublime. I bought too much, par usuale. I'm out of control...somebody commit me to fiber rehab!. I'm not kidding. This is a cry for help!

Nikki's Poem. I Love it.







We are Virginia Tech.

We are sad today, and we will be sad for quite a while. We are not moving on, we are embracing our mourning.

We are Virginia Tech.

We are strong enough to stand tall tearlessly, we are brave enough to bend to cry, and we are sad enough to know that we must laugh again.

We are Virginia Tech.

We do not understand this tragedy. We know we did nothing to deserve it, but neither does a child in Africa dying of AIDS, neither do the invisible children walking the night away to avoid being captured by the rogue army, neither does the baby elephant watching his community being devastated for ivory, neither does the Mexican child looking for fresh water, neither does the Appalachian infant killed in the middle of the night in his crib in the home his father built with his own hands being run over by a boulder because the land was destabilized. No one deserves a tragedy.

We are Virginia Tech.

The Hokie Nation embraces our own and reaches out with open heart and hands to those who offer their hearts and minds. We are strong, and brave, and innocent, and unafraid. We are better than we think and not quite what we want to be. We are alive to the imaginations and the possibilities. We will continue to invent the future through our blood and tears and through all our sadness.

We are the Hokies.

We will prevail.

We will prevail.

We will prevail.

We are Virginia Tech.
