I get by with a Little help from my Friends.
The gorgeous Jan-Maree from Aussie hero Quilts put out a call this week for some children's clothing because of a request from a Chaplin in Afghanistan.
We are not positive of what is required at this point but a local lady gave me some beautiful handknitted items and they are off to the Chaplin along with some other boxes of lovely mixed clothing...9 boxes in all...This was right up my alley as I am co-ordinator of our little op shop and we are happy to supply whatever we can,all the clothes are as new so it is not anything shabby.Also our shop decided to buy the boxes needed and also another 25 ready to do some for the troops in Egypt.Did you know we even had troops there? well there are 7 ladies and 18 men so we are going to spoil them,Jan-Maree and her wonderful quilters are doing them quilts and we are doing Care Packages,these will be lovely to do as we do them for Afghanistan and it is a joy and an honour.
Jan-Maree and her wonderful ladies are at Aussie Hero Quilts go across and have a look at the wonderful things they do.
Have a blessed evening.
