If You’re Able, Please Help

Hi everyone, I don’t very often make personal posts, but this is something very important to me and extremely close to my heart.

I have been talking about a bag that I have been making for my Uncle, but I have yet to make the post about my journey this year making it. I still plan on writing the post. Well, in short, this bag, actually a backpack, that I’ve been working on is very special because I designed it to hold and carry a 6 pound oxygen tank. My Uncle Allen has C.O.P.D. and is now in need of a lung transplant. To be put on the transplant list, there are various medications and treatments that he needs and a lot of it is not covered by his insurance, so he had to set up a GoFundMe page. The link to his page is just below. Any little bit that can be donated is very helpful. I have the Share buttons turned on also, so feel free to share my post.

Allen is my mothers “baby” brother, and he and I grew up together.

*From his GFM page:

“Hello my name is Allen, I am 53 yrs. old and I have C.O.P.D. and currently have 18% to 22% function of my lungs, Breathing is difficult even with oxygen, plus medication. 

I need a lung transplant to get better. The funds i need as soon as possible because with out them i cannot be put on the list for transplant. They are for the medications and uncovered treatment, they need to see this so I can show i can pay for the treatment and the medications.

My sister JoAnn Woofenden had this to add:
” This is my brother. He does not smoke cigarettes and the transplant doctors are continually checking his lungs as he struggles for each breath he takes. Anything would help him to get to his goal for a transplant.”

Thank you for Helping!
Allen Piwowar”

Same Theme, New Look!

I have had this theme for a few years now and I had been thinking about changing it. I was looking through the themes WordPress had to offer and I had found something that I liked the look of, but didn’t have some of the options that I had gotten used to, plus I would have to redo my entire sidebar and that was something I didn’t want to do. So, I decided to used some of the options this theme has available and found a new background. I am happy with the new look and I hope you like it too!

Still Here! and my End of the Year Holiday Sale is Coming up!

Sorry for the inactivity this year. I had a lot going on with dealing with my health issues, home, kids, finishing the slipper socks for my sister in-law, and a huge project for my Uncle (which I will be making a separate post about at a later date. With pictures!).

While working on the project for my Uncle, I had an idea for a bag that I have been working on on and off for awhile when I needed a break. I haven’t decided yet if I am going to write a pattern for it yet though. I’m still working on figuring out how I want the bag to be. I made 2 already, but there are elements to it that I want to change and have 3 different colors already started. 1 is a solid color in Lime Aide (nice bright springy green), the 2nd is a 2 color in black and dark grey heather, and the 3rd is a 2 color in brown and sky blue. The ones that I already finished, a 3 color cross-body shoulder bag, and then a 2 color backpack that I’m sending to my mom. I’ve been using the 3 color one and it’s helped me see what I would like to change in the construction of some parts of it.

The Knee-High Slipper Socks I made for my sister in-law I did write a pattern for that was was thinking about selling, but I don’t have any good photos for it. I really should get it tested some more, but I haven’t had any luck with reliable testers (except for 1 friend of mine, who was great). The slipper socks are knitted in worsted weight yarn and was made to fit up to a 20 inch calf, a wider foot width, and the foot length is customizable.

My End of the Year Holiday Sale is coming up very, very soon! It will be starting on the 1st of November, 12am EST, this year! Ending on December 31, 11:59pm EST! 2 months long! 25% off of All Patterns! The sale includes everything in my Patterns for Purchase page.

 

I hope everyone had a good 2017 and a very Happy Holiday Season coming up! Keep an eye out for my upcoming blog post on the huge project that I have been working on this year!
