Just a really quick post to let you see the pincushions I've donated to the Haiti by Hand Etsy shop. I wanted to convey a sense of spring and renewal with my pincushions. The butterfly signifies hope to me as well. Haiti by Hand is a wonderful project started by Rebecca Sower. I am borrowing these words from her Haiti by Hand etsy shop.
Haiti By Hand is an artisan group of Haitian women begun by Rebecca Sower. Just days before the earthquakes of January 2010, Rebecca was in Haiti working with this group of women. This etsy shop was established to showcase and sell the handcrafts of the Haitians, as well as a shop to sell items donated by artists and crafters who want to help this group of Haitians rebuild and establish themselves after the devastation of the earthquakes.
I think it is a wonderful project and I plan to help as much as I can. I hope you'll go see some of the beautiful works of art that have already been donated.
