Charity

One of my friends' church is sponsoring a young woman who is homeless and pregnant. I don't know her story on how she got to where she is today, but do know she needs all the support she can get to learn how to cope with her current situation and the strength to make the necessary changes to bring herself to a better place... and Hope.

A group of women in the church put on a baby shower for her and I was asked if I wanted to contribute anything. So, I began working as I had one week before the shower.






I think the heirloom stitched footprints are perfect for a baby gift. Don't you?




I just love the pink and brown color combination. I'm going to have to buy more of these prints as I'm sure there will be another request for a baby gift.

Although I know there are many people who give of themselves for others, I believe those who knit, sew, and quilt are some of the most generous and thoughtful people I've ever met. 

Do you have a favorite charity you contribute to?

O Dena- how lovely all of your creations are! I had never thought of the browns and pinks together- I like it.

I also love the little footprints- they are the icing on the cake. Such beautiful work and items that will so enjoyed.

I really admire people who give their pretty handwork for charity. I do get tired of hearing ""oh that's good enough for charity" from some people. If we were on the receiving end I am sure we would appreciate someone's especially good and beautiful work.

I love the designs - and the brown/pink binding is just too too sweet. Thank you for your generosity to someone who will often be judged harshly for things that might not be her own doing - but just circumstances she couldn't control.
