Here we have a teeny tiny bit of progress on mom's bday gift. Not much but it's been a busy week. I'm hoping to get the rest of the wording done this week and at least one of the moose.
Next is a very special project....this little giraffe will be going on a toddler quilt for charity. I'll be doing 11 more little animals and making a zoo theme quilt out of them.
For those of you that would like to stitch a quilt block for charity, please join my group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/KraftersKornerCharityQuilts This year we are stitching quilt squares for babies and toddlers. These quilts will go to a home for young mothers and be given to their babies. I'm also organizing tote bags filled with items for the moms....the totes will be filled with toiletries, a hooded sweatshirt, socks, disposable camera's and scrapbooking supplies. This place is in desperate need of help for just day to day basic items that we all take for granted. This is a faith based home and it is run on donations only and a grant from the United Way. It cost the home approx $850 per month to house one girl. They provide counseling services, pre & post natal care, life skills and parenting classes while the girls continue to get their high school diploma's or GED. When the girls leave the home they are ready to face the world as parents to their children and productive members of society. This truly is a great cause!
If anyone would like to donate basic necessities like light bulbs, laundry soap, etc. please contact me for information. I have a long list of things that are needed.
Anyway, that's my update for the week! Hope to have lots of progress to show everyone next week! Keep your needles smokin'!! Hugs to all my cyber family!
