So, I am supposed to blog daily and keep you all up to date with what is going on in my corner of the world. It's hard to do, when some days there is just not anything going on here. However, I must say, the past 3 weeks have been absolutely jam packed! No time to think, much less blog!

On June 20, at 3:35 p.m. my first grand child was born! Aubree Eileen made her arrival after a lot of hard work by her mom! I was able to be in the birthing room for the whole labor and delivery and I must say, it is hard to watch your daughter go through this process! However, as it was when I had my girls, the arrival of the baby always makes the pain seem so trivial!

The little family came home from the hospital only to find that their air conditioning was not working properly and their home was way to hot to stay in, especially with a newborn! So, everyone got packed up and came on over to my house! I had mom, dad, and Aubree for 2 weeks. They are home now, but because dad works out of town, I've spent this week at their home, mostly just for the nights! Needless to say, I've accomplished little in the sewing room! I have made some baby booties, both for Aubree and for my Etsy shop! I just need to make some more and really get back to work here!

Speaking of my Etsy shop... I just opened it this past week and am looking forward to adding more homemade products! Check it out at:
Just click on the banner and it'll take you there! I hope you enjoy my small offering and come back often to see what's been added! Please remember that I will be adding quilts, quilted wall hangings, purses...oh who knows what may show up in Meme's Boutique! Make sure you visit often!

48 for Larry"In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us." Flora Edwards

Larry Hamm over at Chelsea Lynn Designs on Artfire is a friend of many in the world of handmade, he is also the voice of The Crazy Train on Blockhead Radio. Larry has a fantastic wife Janet, and an 8 year old son Jacob who live with him in Lansing, NC deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Larry is a friend to everyone and just an all around swell guy. He is most definitely the "shirt off your back" kind of friend. Right now, all of Larry´s friends and Blockhead Radio are teaming up to help him out in a tough time.

Larry is a disabled diabetic who currently has lost his health insurance. His medication alone monthly is over $2,000. Larry is not receiving disability, he has not been approved yet. His wife is the only source of income and she doesn´t make enough to cover his medications. Larry´s doctors have given him an outlook of only 18 months to live if he doesn´t receive a $17,000 gastric bypass surgery as soon as possible. Larry and his family need all the help from their family and friends they can get! Jacob and Janet need Larry to hang around here with them as long as he possibly can! All of his friends surely want Larry to stick around too!

All of us at Blockhead Radio are gearing up for the biggest Radiothon you´ll ever be a part of! July 24th at 6pm until July 26th at 6pm, Blockhead Rod will be live on the radio for 48 hours straight raising money for our friend Larry. A silent auction of donated handmade goods will also be going up on the home page of Blockhead Radio with 100% of the proceeds going to Larry.

If you would like to be a part of this wonderful event, please email DeDe Sorensen at: Please donate any handmade items you can for the silent auction have your emails in with your donations by July 22nd. If you would like to donate cash for Larry's prescriptions and surgery please visit Blockhead Radio July 24th through July 26th. There will be plenty of ways to get your donations in.

Keep listening to Blockhead Radio for fantastic indie music, and how you can help Larry Hamm of Chelsea Lynn Designs.
