Angel Award Check Presentation at Ascension Parish Council Meeting

Tonight was a very special and proud moment for me as a mom. My daughter, Betsey, was presented with a $20,000 check from Blue Cross as a recipient of the Angel Award at the Ascension Parish Council Meeting. Some of the APIL program participants, Ion, Mila, Nemo and Luke, were there to support Betsey and the program. Parish President Tommy Martinez, who nominated Betsey for the award, made the presentation along with Blue Cross Representatives. We are very grateful to Blue Cross, Ascension Parish Recreation, volunteers and the children who are involved in the program for making it such a success.

A non profit organization, Annette's Angel Foundation, has been created to administer the award money. It will be used to support APIL (Ascension Parish Inclusive League) as well as help promote inclusive, non competitive recreation for people with or without disabilities.

Projects for Holiday Mart and Christmas Gifts

These are a couple of Ava Sundresses that will be available at the Holiday Mart on November 14th. Both of the dresses are made from Fabric Finder's pique fabric. The fleur di lis was a free design I downloaded from sew forum.

Their are so many projects I would like to do for Christmas gifts this year especially now that I have an embroidery machine. The problem is finding the time to complete them all. I am happy to say that I did manage to get a few cups embroidered for co-workers.
