May we someday hear the words "well done" because others have felt His touch and love through our hands and feet and know they are important and special to Him.

Never Underestimate What You Do!

As we spend this month completing projects for our March delivery, we are joined in our efforts to make a difference.  I was given a "sneak peek" at what Mud Pie will also be doing for ACH!  They are implementing a program to provide socks already wrapped as a gift for the babies of the CVICU!!!  We inspire them, but they inspire us too!  Once all details are finalized and started, I will post photos and information for everyone to see.  They are an amazing company!  Take some time to check them out!  You will be blessed.

Most families at ACH cannot afford the little things such as the beautiful socks or outfits that can be worn and enjoyed in the CVICU.  To have the honor of companies such as Mud Pie making a difference too is what most of you that heard have called "speechless".  To have them honor our daughter Elizabeth Posinski is overwhelming.  There simply are no words.

We also received some money this past week to use to purchase fabric from an anonymous person.  God is so good to provide.  As we are His hands and feet to these little ones that He loves so dearly, He will honor these efforts and you are going to see even more blessings than your bucket can hold!

"You can do what I cannot do.  I can do what you cannot do.  Together we can do great things."  - Mother Teresa.  This is the beauty of all of you.  We each have talents we can use.  Never underestimate what you do.  You impact others and it spreads.  Together, we make a difference!

Serger Class and Fabric News

Hello!  Many of the items we make for the babies are most easily constructed using a serger instead of a sewing machine.  And, I know many of you have a serger but do not yet use it to the full potential!  Did you know that you can make over 100 baby hats in a day with a serger?  Pretty awesome and easy!  So, if you are interested, B Sew Inn in Fayetteville has an all day serger class on Tuesday the 20th.  The class is $30 and includes a light lunch.  A hands on project will be completed during the class.  Anyone interested just call 479-442-7808!  A class like this is how I learned to really use my serger and I know it will make a huge difference for you as well.

On another note, the flannel selection on sale this week at JoAnn's is amazing!  I stopped by today and was able to pick up quite a few different pieces.  It only takes a yard to do a receiving blanket that is also used as a sheet under the babies.  It makes their beds so pretty and inviting.  I hope everyone has a chance to pick some up for our next meeting.

You are amazing!  You make a difference!  I will post photos in the near future as well so everyone sees how wonderful these items are.

Our first meeting was great success!  February 4, 2012 a wonderful group of ladies came together and began the project of providing items for the babies of Arkansas Children's Hospital.  As the group grows, the more babies in Arkansas will be served.  Each meeting will have the totals posted here for others to see.  Check in often for updates!
