Mother Bear Project

Dr. Gemma from the Cogknitive Podcast mentioned the Mother Bear Project.

The Mother Bear Project is dedicated to providing comfort and hope to children affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations, by giving them a gift of love in the form of a hand-knit or crocheted bear. The simple gift of a hand-knit bear with a tag signed by the knitter has touched children with the message that they are unconditionally loved.

After checking out the website and looking at all the photos, I knew I wanted to make one of these these bears. To put a smile on a child's face with something that I enjoy doing is worth my time.

Bunny was my first and she is made out of I Love this Cotton!


Bonita and Benito are made out of Red Heart Kids and Paton. I redid Bonita's face to make it a little softer. I am using a Knit in the Round Mother Bear Project Pattern from Katmcab. Please check out the Mother Bear Project website. Are there any charities that you enjoy knitting or crocheting for?

What Kind of Cake Are You?




You Are a Chocolate Cake



Fun, comforting, and friendly.

You are a true classic, and while you're not super cutting edge, you're high quality.

People love your company - and have even been known to get addicted to you.

My Word is...




You see life as possibility to form deep connections with a few people.

Relationships are the center of your world, and you always take time to bond with those you love.

You are caring and giving. You enjoy helping those you love.

And when it comes to romantic love, you feel passionately ... even in a very long term relationship.

Valentine Basket


With all the red dishcloths I've been making this month, I put together this little Valentine basket for my mom. The Dollar Store had the little heart-shaped baskets added the dish soap, cookies, kisses and a rose. I think she really liked it.

Dishcloths R Us


Jean, doxietrek, was looking for a moderator to assist her with the Dishcloths R Us group on Ravelry....pm'd her and bam....just call me a moderator.

With my goal of making 100 dishcloths this year, I thought it would be fun to help out with a group. I pledge to check on the group daily, to help whenever possible, to instill the love of making dishcloths upon everyone, to maintain peace and order, etc,etc,etc.

The Group Moto: A group for dishcloths and nothing but dishcloths.

Thanks Jean for entrusting this honor upon me!
Another blog about knitting......and crocheting too!
