Volunteer Work

File 2017-05-11, 4 08 56 PMTime to do something good for the community

So off to sewing placemats and two pillows. Several of our Special Needs Adult kids are volunteering their time at a Retirement Home in Aurora.

So I thought since I can’t help on sight, I could help out too and sew up some stuff for them to sell at the TuckShop….Lots of great fabric was donated for me to use. Thanks You !

Hopefull the TuckShop will have fun selling them too. More will come soon too….Though I hope this is a good start for now. Enjoy

With this TuckShop our Special Need Adult Volunteers learn so many great things…counting money, selling items, manage to be with others, teamwork, communicating with customers, listening to others….the list goes on and not to forget having  some fun too.

Pillow For A Giant

Floor-Pillow
Giant Floor-Pillow great to be cozy on the floor knitting away. You see the other pillow in the back in pinks not really our colour in the home. but had the fabric

I think I have gone mad….ohhh how big did this pillow turn out. Yes I was planing to make a somewhat bigger floor pillow for me to sit one. In the past out Rocky would snuggle up next to me while I was sitting on the floor knitting away. I always love that. So here I am still sitting from time to time on the floor knitting away just no Rocky anymore.

This is how it started....Well I did not expect it to get that big!

Back to this Giant Floor Pillow….ahhh I really do not have the space for this size. What do I do now? This is one of those moments where my hubby probably thinks…..”Oh no not this again” In a good way lol. Well the colours work a little better with our home decor then the two smaller one I already sewn up two weeks ago. So will see what will happen with this stunning, big, colourful, sued, upholstery and yes cozy to sit in floor Pillow. Now if Rocky still would be with us perhaps he would have loved to sleep on it. Out Timber is already checking it out too.

Gald to have that much stuffing available in such short notice....Dankschoen

Oh yes it measures a great big 3 feet across never mind about the weight…

Stuffing and more stuffing.

So was ist den hier passiert ….ohhh wie groß hat dieses Boden-Kissen geworden ist. Ich denke ich bin verrück geworden…lach. Ja eigentlich wollte ich es ja etwas größer für den Boden für mich zum sitzen. Ich sitze eigentlich noch gern am Boden und als Rocky noch mit uns war kuschelte er sich immer neben mir hin währent ich strikte. 

Timber is wondering about this too.  I wonder if he is going to snooze on it?

Zurück zu diesem riesigen Boden- Kissen….ahhh wirklich wir haben ja gar keinen Platz für so ein grosses Kissen. Was soll ich jetzt tun? Bin gespannt was mein Mann dazu denkt….”Oh nein, nicht schon wieder” doch in einer guten Weise lach. Muss aber sagen die Farben sind jetzt ein wenig besser für unser Decor, dann die beiden kleineren ich schon genäht hatte vor zwei Wochen, passen in der farbe nicht zu uns. Groß, Bunt, Polsterung-Stoff Leder und ja gemütlich sitz man schon in dem Kissen. Nun, wenn Rocky noch bei uns wäre würde er es sicher geniessen darin zu Schlafen. So auch unsere Katze schaut es schon an.

Oh ja das Kissen hat ein Durchmesser von 90cm und das Gewicht na ja das lassen wir sein.
