Charity time

IMG_2621

I just realized it is nearly July and I must start now to get done the projects I want to finish for charity.    Besides I needed diversion from the quilt making.  So I pulled out this purple bolt, I purchased the day after Thanksgiving and started cutting the little purple hats for the hospital’s “purple hat” program.  There are 8 yards on a bolt which when cut 8.5″ high and 15″ wide will give 136 little hats.   All the 8.5″ strips are cut, and I have started cutting the 15″ widths.

Baby blanket progress

IMG_2515I’m remaking this blanket and now have a blanket 32″ wide.   I have 8″ done, and would like it to be at least square, so I will be crocheting on it between other projects.    It would be nice to get it done this month, but no hurry. I’m using a one pound skein of Paton’s baby sport yarn

I have 2 quilts to be done by the end of the month, then Mary and I can start our charity project for this year.   The projects I’m looking at are:

  1. 1 bolt of fleece made into purple baby hats for the hospital. (DH is crocheting hats)

  2. Dresses for African girls

  3. Shorts for African boys

  4. Sanitary pads for the African teen girls.

There may be other projects to consider, that haven’t come up yet.   Do you have other ideas, we should consider?    Would you be interested in helping with a project?   I’d love to hear from you.
