Patchwork Heart Scarf ~ Pay it Forward February

{Have you ever heard about a situation and it just breaks your heart and you feel like you HAVE TO do something about it?A few months back I met a lady, Lovely Reckley, and she told me how she goes to four different schools in Abaco and feeds 85+ children that would have otherwise had no lunch. For some of these kids, this is the only meal of the day.Lovely even takes food to some of them when school is out.That really broke my heart. I mean, I know there are kids all over the world that are starving, but when I realized there were children right under my nose it killed me. I kept wondering what I could do. I thought about offering to help cook, but cooking for so many mouths really overwhelmed me. Then I realized what a COMMITMENT this awesome woman had made to these children…..EVERYDAY!!!At Christmas, instead of giving gifts I gave a donation to her organization (and to our Humane Society) instead of buying things that people really didn’t need.But it kept tugging at my heart. So, I decided for the month of February I would post several heart themed items to my blog. They would be for sale, and I would give 25% of the cost of the item to Lovely, to help with her costs.I may post an item everyday or I may post several items a week…..I am really not sure, but 25% will go to “Feed the Children” in Abaco, Bahamas.I CANNOT imagine going without food, or only having one meal a day that I had to rely on someone else to bring to me, and these children shouldn’t have to deal with this either, so please help!}

Happy Hump Day!
I have a totally new item for today’s heart item.
A Patchwork Heart Scarf.  I really love scarves, and this year in Abaco, we have not had much of a winter to wear them.  So I have been trying to come up with a lighter weight scarf to wear in our climate.  I have some silk ones in the process of being made also, but for today here is the Patchwork Heart Scarf….

There are five randomly pieced hearts and the entire scarf is made from batiks.

It is about 54 inches by 10.5 inches, and can be worn in a variety of different ways.

It is $56, and 25% of that goes to Feed the Children Abaco.
If you are interested in it you can find it on my Bahama Dawn Facebook page……{HERE}
Or in my Etsy shop……{HERE}

Thanks for stopping by.
Love, stitches and creativity!

Maybe….Just Maybe…this is an obsession…….

These owls just may be bordering on a mild obsession!
I keep getting these new ideas in my head and have to get them out and onto fabric.  Really hoping this creative spell sticks around for a while before the creative block sets in.
Still have other owl and bird items that are in the process of being finished………need to fire up the kiln and polish some silver before i can show you those items.
