I only have a pair of little hands that can offer small things. But many little hands will make bigger things.

Here’s a raffle, in cooperation with A Bit of This and a Bit of That, where you can make a donation and win this package of prizes!

    I love the fabric in the bag. So glad you are all safe.

  • One week after, the images shawn on TV still impress me a lot. We are so small against the elements … we probably all start to pay the price of the way we live, without thinking enough to the environmental aspects of the world … the lesson will be for everyone in this world but right know, it’s the morning in my country and one days more has passed in yours. I sincerely hope that each day will be a better day than the previous one and that the situation will be better in a close future for you and all the Japan.
    By the way, I like very much the way you draw your pattern of your tutorials. Can I ask you what kind of drawing software do you use ?

    I just wanted to let you know of a Call for Quilts I just learned of by a Japanese Magazine – Patchwork Tsushin. They are asking for handmade quilts to be donated which they will distribute to those poor people needing them the most. Here is the link: http://www.quiltersnewsletter.com/blogs/insideqn/2011/03/18/call-for-quilts-for-japan/comment-page-1/#comment-2632

    There is also Liberal Sprinkles which has started collecting a really good list of all the crafty related ways people can help: http://liberalsprinkles.blogspot.com/2011/03/japan-earthquake-tsunami-how-to-help.html

    Also, on Ayumi’s blog Pink Penguin, http://ayumills.blogspot.com/2011/03/giveaway-to-support-donation-for-japan.html she posted a People Finder for Japan 2011: http://japan.person-finder.appspot.com/?redirect=0

    I’m so glad you and your family are okay! My heart goes out to everyone in the wake of such a tragedy – I can’t even begin to imagine what that’s like. It’s hard to feel like my small part will make any difference, but I know there are many, many others doing the same and together we can have a bit effect.

  • Dear Novita,

    I’m glad to hear you and your family are well and safe. I wanted to express my sadness for the disaster that hit Japan, and would love to help. Also, I’d like to tell you that many Serbs are raising funds and offering various types of help to your people. I hope the radiation will reduce to minimum, and that the casualties won’t increase.

    Much love from AnaJan
