Iraqi Bundles of Love — the intro « Iraqi Bundles of Love: "The general premise is this. I am in Iraq, and I can get mail through the US Postal System. Willing contributors can send to me a flat-rate box of sewing / quilting supplies, all bundled up. I’d open the box, pull out the fully-contained bundle, and hand it off (with others) to our counterparts in the Iraqi Security Forces (Army and others) or the local police, for them to distribute. Some of the bundles will also be delivered by US Soldiers. The stated intent of this operation is to put sewing and quilting and knitting supplies into the hands of two types of recipients: locals who desperately need such things, and local sewing co-ops and other small businesses who have received grants or loans (typically to purchase sewing machines, rent space, etc)."
What a big Pay It Forward this is! I know that I am blessed with more than enough. Some of my fabric and yarn has sat in bins and boxes for too long. The potential is wasted as long as it stays in that box. We take far too much for granted. Just imagine if how the recipients will feel when they open each bundle. What joy such a small gesture will bring to someone in need.
Time is limited for this project!! Please visit the IBOL blog and you will find all the information you need to obtain the address and how-to's on packing your bundle. God bless our military men and women.

Then it hit me...crab cakes! Not just any crab cakes! I LOVE the ones we get at Oceanaire Restaurant. I can't even begin to describe them. No fillers, just pure sweet lump crabmeat. I have always loved crab since growing up on the east coast and eating them on picnic tables covered in paper and the cooked crabs just dumped in the middle. Everyone would grab some crabs and a wooden hammer and a nut cracker and go to town. When every one was finished there would only be a large pile of shells left. Tough to get crabs like that in landlocked Indy!
That's it...my favorite food...crab cakes! Yum!
her shop and leave a heart or two.
