But, I have been working on a few projects, which I am excited about. First, I made a purse to donate to a special charity, the Paws for Love Foundation. This is a annual event where items are auctioned off and proceeds go to animal rescue groups. I am very excited because the purse turned out great and I am happy to help out these animals, even in a small way.
I also came across a 1 Million Pillow Case Challenge that I would like to take part it. Basically, a non-profit is campaigning for crafters to unite and make pillow cases for cancer patients, foster children, nursing home, battered women, etc. I can probably make a few pillow cases with some fabric I have already, so the cost will be minimal. I am thinking about copying this idea and sending pillow cases to CF patients, especially those undergoing transplant. More to come one that.
I am also excited to participate in a craft exchange, where you are paired with another crafter and exchange a home made craft. I was assigned my partner today. She is actually the same age as me, so that is funny. I'm not going to say what I am making yet, but I will post after it is mailed.
Lastly, I started a cross stitch project. Its Zombies. I found it at Barnes and Nobel. There are 12 total projects in the kit. I am hoping to make them all and put them together in a wall hanging to add to my Halloween decorations. I am 85% done with my first pattern, so I am hoping to post once it is completed. I have never crossed stitched before, so I am just teaching myself as I go. Its a nice project to have while just sitting around watching TV.
