Another 18 Preemie hats in 1 week

Posted by zvelasco on September 2, 2012 at 11:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Seems like 18 is the magic number for preemie hats/caps.   Submitted another 18 today to add to the many lap blankets, and other knitted and crocheted items  that the Westminster Presbyterian Women will be bringing to Parkland this week.  Actually they were dedicated during the service.  I was reminded that preemie hats could not be bought at all.   The preemie babies' heads come in many sizes, so they will need and could use all the small ones we could make.  Thank you for making a difference to our world with all the work your hands are able to make!

Yeayy!  We have just finished 18 preemie hats and donated it to the Neonatal Unit of Parkland Hospital through the Westminster Presbyterian Women's group at Westminter Presbyterian Church in Dallas.  We thank God for the opportunity to participate in His work to benefit others.

Velvet Jasmines Inaugural High Tea

VELVET JASMINES INAUGURAL HIGH TEA.   The Velvet Jasmines of Dallas, Tx is a Red Hat Society chapter that was chartered on 8/8/2012.  For their inaugural event that day, they met for "high tea" at the plush Champagne's Luxe located at 5201 West Lover's Lane in Dallas.

Wearing special red and pink hats in all their purple and lavender finery, present were Princess Claire, and Lady Aziel with her excellency Queen Sonetchka.  For their teas, the Queen chose "Earl Grey", Princess Claire "White Ambrosia" and Lady Aziel "Green Tea".   This was "high tea" that was out of the ordinary. in a setting that was so special it could have come out of a Victorian era picture.   The chandeliers, the plush royal chairs and tables, the music from the grand piano, the Victorian pink flowered place setting and the food!  There were assorted finger sandwiches of smoked salmon mousse, classic egg, cranberry walnut chicken, cucumber chive with cream cheese, goat cheese with sun dried tomato.  Then of course, eclairs and freshly baked scones which we filled with red raspberry preserves.  These were freshly made for the event, so were the many other petit fours.  The scones were my favorite.   Dotted with blackberry and red raspberries, they were crunchy on the outside, and velvety soft on the inside.  The preserves they served with it were not so sweet, and just right for our diabetic tastes.  Everything was just "divine" and "loverly"!!

Having experienced "High Tea" at Kensington Palace in London, and then in Bath, this was still my  best "High Tea" experience so far.

Music for SSA was distributed for a Christmas concert planned in December at the Walnut Place Nursing Home.  This has become a tradition and has consistently been happening there these past 3 years.  We still need an accompanist for this year,  but we know that when the music is chosen, the pianist is also "chosen from above".  He or she will appear later, and just in time to rescue us.  Besides, for Plan B, (just in case), we also have enough SSA songs that do not need accompaniment.
