A big welcome to Karen karensquiltscrowscardinals.blogspot.com.au and to Christine via bloglovin welcome to my blog.
I am a member of a small craft group associate with one of the local churches. Each year this small group of women work tirelessly to organise and produce items for the Shoebox Appeal. For those of you who are not aware of the appeal, donations are collected and packed into shoe boxes and sent to poorer countries. Around Christmas time the boxes are distributed to the children, I cried while watching a DVD of the children receiving their boxes. The excitement of the children was overwhelming
All items donate must be able to fit into a shoe box, some of the donations include,
pens and pencils
The group often hold working bees to make drawstring bags to hold the personal and school items and last year over 100 small dolls were knitted.
I have donated fabric, drawstring bags, pens, pencils and face cloths. This month I made 6 little skirts.
Hope all is well in blog land
