Lap Quilts and More Via Sandi

I am often told that we should consider applying for food stamps and Medicaid. We do and have though it is a complete waste of time. Because of Texas rules on food stamps and Medicaid, they only look at your income. Social Security Disability is counted as income and our combined SSD of just over $1500 means that we exceed the limit by $15.00. Texas does NOT take into consideration that our rent is $1500, over what we spend in medicines each month for her (let alone the rest of us), power bill, etc. What Sandi gets from sales of her crafts, and what we receive in donations from wonderful people, is how we are surviving here. That's it.

In recent days Sandi has been strong enough to finish a couple of things and now has them ready for sale. Funds raised from selling these things goes to putting food on the table, medicines, etc. so please know that buying something helps us lot.

Please ignore the date/time stamp on the first few pictures as something went haywire with her old camera.

As you see to the right and below, first up is her latest lap quilt which measures 44x43 inches. The interior consists of four squares of various colors with an outer border of yellow. Asking price is $50 which includes the usual $9.00 non priority shipping by way of the post office. (If you prefer UPS shipping that can be easily done though we do not know what that would cost.)

Also she has finished this walker caddy. A walker caddy attaches to the walker by way of the top loops making it possible for the user to bring along with him or her, a book, television remote, eyeglasses, etc., while leaving the hands free to hold on to the walker.

These go for $10 and that includes the usual $4.00 non priority shipping.

While those are her latest efforts she still has a number of items available that were mentioned here at the end of January. The price listed includes the same non priority shipping by way of the post office. They include....             

$45  35x42 with Maroon border

$45  32x46 Double Blue

$50   44x44 Green with Maroon border

                                  And this walker caddy in her "winter colors" and sells for $10


Of course, she has plenty of  other items over at her iOffer store, but there are far too many to list here.

Hopefully you see something you like in these.
