As you may have guessed, I’ve been pretty busy in the last two weeks. I know, I know, no excuses…. but really, I’ve drafted patterns, cut out and constructed 3 leather coats, 3 leather vests and 3 leather dresses. But, that’s another post, and I will describe these in more detail in another post. For now I have something more exciting.  I met the most amazing guy the other day. He had the most wonderful energy and positive outlook, I just liked him right away. I’m always looking for new ideas for adaptive clothing and new Buggy Bag products, so I was really happy when he agree to work with me to develop a few new things (tell you about those later). He took a couple of Lap Blankets from me to try out with his “InterFit” organization when they go out on hikes. He started this group in North Vancouver to provide people with disabilities, the opportunity to get out into the woods and enjoy the fresh air. I just love this idea. Seeing the news story that was done on the group, and the huge smile on the girls face as she was escorted through the BC woods, on this really cool unit by volunteers brought tears to my eyes. I never saw such wonder and joy on one face. Such a great experience.

InterFit is holding a fundraiser in North Vancouver, so if you’re interested in helping out a really fantastic organization, here is a link  http://www.interfit.ca/news.htm

I also want to show you a pictures of the rigs used on the trails.. they’re so cool! I can’t wait for my first hike as a volunteer.
