Heart to Heart Swap, take 1

I really should have been cleaning up this mess today while Jack was at school. I am doubtful he is well enough for school today, so I guess my sewing area reorganization disaster is going to stay a disaster for another week. Ha! That list never gets smaller does it?

Ok, onto the Valentines.
Fun cones from Shara ;
A quilted love note from Rosemary ;
sweet little birdies from Courtney ;
and toadstools (you know I loved those!) from Barbara .

More Valentines tomorrow...

    You probably already found out but I thought I'd leave a comment just in case.

    The new requirements were scheduled to take effect on February 10, 2009 but enforcement will now be delayed for one year (February 10, 2010). This will give the CPSC time to finalize four proposed rules which could exempt certain products from testing and provide more guidance on when testing would be required.

    From the press release:

    The stay of enforcement provides some temporary, limited relief to the crafters, children’s garment manufacturers and toy makers who had been subject to the testing and certification required under the CPSIA. These businesses will not need to issue certificates based on testing of their products until additional decisions are issued by the Commission. However, all businesses, including, but not limited to, handmade toy and apparel makers, crafters and home-based small businesses, must still be sure that their products conform to all safety standards and similar requirements, including the lead and phthalates provisions of the CPSIA.


Hi there. What say you?
