Honestly, I am rather proud of myself this week, I actually have something to post about for Finished for Friday which is hosted by Lit and Laundry. That really does not happen very often. I may not be able to finish things like a bathroom remodeling project, but I was so determined to finish this project.
Let me introduced you to Ol' Blue Eyes, named for his baby blue button eyes of course.
Last week, I read a post on Pip Stitch, Patty's Blog about The Toy Society. Once I had a look around the website, I was hooked, and I joined the Society right away. Now, my job was to make a handmade toy and leave it on the streets for someone to find. I saw a toy someone else had made fashioned the same way Ol' Blue Eyes is made on the website, and I thought to myself...Self....I could do that! And that is how this little guy came to be.
Since St. Patrick's Day is coming up, I decided to make his body green. And, I think if the weather permits, that is the day I will deposit him somewhere on the streets. I will post a follow up post and let you know where he will sit and wait for his new owner to find him.
In a world of such uncertainty and so much turmoil, you just never know how finding something unexpected can give you a bit of hope and encouragement at just the right time.
A simple toy, and an idea has changed and brought comfort to so many lives. But don't take my word for it, see for yourself. Click HERE and then if your are still not sold on this idea, click HERE and if you are not looking for a tissue by then, well....I really hope you happen upon a toy one day on the streets to help soften your heart. This is a wonderful idea, and I am so happy to be a part of giving out hope and comfort.
Thank you Patty, for posting about this wonderful project taking place all over the world. Thanks to Lit and Laundry for hosting Finished For Friday's, I may not be able to post often, but I sure feel good about myself on the Friday's I have a project finished to talk about.
