Lots Of Hats This Week!

First, I wanted to say how honored I am that I was named the crafter of the month! I've been having so much fun with the One Hundred Hats project, I forget that others are watching sometimes!

Speaking of, here's the hats I've gotten posted up this week:



I'm also happy to report I've written another hat pattern, and this time all the proceeds will be going to helping out the Haitian relief efforts of Doctors Without Borders! You can read more about the pattern here, and here's a photo of the finished product:


Also, I love the idea of knitting up items to sell (on an Etsy account, perhaps?) to raise money for charity! I've got several hat patterns I've written recently I'd be glad to share toward that sort of undertaking, and would also LOVE LOVE LOVE to write a pattern or two that would be Homespun Helpers signature patterns for people to use. What do we think of that?

Wow, those are all so gorgeous!!!

I would be most pleased to collaborate with you to make some patterns that Homespun Helpers could make for fundraising! Perhaps we could work on a hat pattern that would include something sewn that could be added for those of us who don't knit or crochet? Could be fun, non? :)

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to choose a proper companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Hi!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can make real money on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may begin earning with a money that usually goes
for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'm ready to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I make 1000-2000 per daily now.
