Virginia Kraft Textiles

I found these wonderful hand blocked textiles 
while I was searching Instagram.  They were  created by Andrea Whalen..

Her company is named after her Grandmother, Virginia Kraft.

I've always loved hand blocked fabric..

I would love to try making my own one day.

I love this one!

Wouldn't it be cute in a children's room.

Virginia Kraft can be found here.

 A percentage of all sales go to The Virginia Kraft Fund which helps underprivileged children in her community participate in music, sports and the arts.

My son came home on Saturday and hes doing well. He started an outpatient P.T. program and someone has to be with him at all times. He has a long road ahead of him and one more surgery. I'm sure he's going to be going through a lot of different emotions and frustrations and so are we. But, were flowing with it!

I use to tell my kids all the time..when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

 And that's what were going to do!

Thanks for stopping by,
