I love the colour of the yarn and have called this pattern Lemon and Lime
I would like to show you this remarkable video about a brave little girl called Claudia, Claudia who was 4years old (6 now) was born with EB, Epidermolysis Bullosa is a painful genetic skin disorder that causes skin layers as well as body linings to separate and blister at the slightest touch.I first saw Claudia on a Documentary called "This is Me" and I was so moved at such a little girl having so much acceptance and courage and in truth over the next two years that followed I would often think of her and say a prayer for her.
Then while watching one of my favorite shows Nationwide, which I usually watch to see all the crafters around Ireland - who is on it? Claudia and again I am in tears at watching this little girl in her normal life - and I am not crying out of pity for her but out of complete awe for her lovely soul, again this one little girl touched my heart and so I contacted Debra Ireland the charity whose mission is to fund the development of treatments and cures for all forms of Epidermolysis Bullosa, and meanwhile to do all in its power to alleviate the suffering caused by EB. and asked could I send them some handmade super soft hats for the little members and was delighted to get a quick reply saying I could!
My goal is to make hats and matching scarfs for the dozen little boys and girls ages 3 - 6yrs in a soft and cuddly yarn. I am giving myself a deadline as this is very important to me and I dont want to get sidetracked by other projects, So I will give myself one month at the latest to get them done and sent in time for the cold winter months. This really is something I feel so strongly about and will also be sending a cash donation too.
What charities do you support?
