A Stitch In Time Saves…. August 24, 2007

Filed under: crafty goodness,knitting,life in the city — Diana @ 9:18 am


The 35W bridge collapse has affected us all, personally and as a community.  Although we most of us can’t do much to build the bridge back up, we can do something to support the families of those injured or lost.

In response to this tragedy, some of your local crafting friends will be hosting…
