a nice surprise

Over the winter I worked on a blanket project for charity. Vivi over at tricotducoeur had encouraged some of her readers to participate in the blanket project for the kids at Victory Junction Gang Camp.

Victory Junction is a year-round camp that serves children, ages 7 to 15, with a variety of health issues. The camp enriches the lives of children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses by providing life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun, and empowering, in a safe and medically sound environment. The camp was founded by Kyle and Pattie Petty, in honor of their son Adam and opened its doors 2004.


I made this blanket and sent it in. Others did the same. (Say hi to my girl Molly who was hoping the blankie was for her.)

A couple of weeks ago I got such an unexpected and nice surprise. I didn't realize that by submitting a blanket by the deadline I would be eligible for a prize...but I was! I received a lovely hand made aromatherapy necklace from Wisdom of the Moon in my color choice. I chose green as you can see...

Be sure to check out Wendy's Wisdom of the Moon etsy store and also be sure to take a few minutes to enjoy her blog. Thanks again Wendy! I love my necklace!

  1. That is a really neat thing you did! What a good idea on their part. Interesting! (I'm from non-profit, so I love stuff like this.) The necklace is nice too! Ah! I love it!
