Knitted cotton wash cloths are being sent to the Loves Many Cloths group to which I belong for delivery to a domestic assault shelter.
Acts of Kindness
One of my blog readers, KJ, doesn’t sew but admired the coupon organizer I made. So I’ve created one for her and, in return, KJ agreed to pay the kindness forward by doing a good deed for someone else.
I used fabrics from my stash.
Joni of Yummers! wants to see what the Marie Claire Idées magazine is all about. Since I have extra copies of various issues, I’m sending those to her along with some other things. In turn, she is also doing a pay-it-forward project.
Gifts of Friendship
Crystal of Fairiebees was so sweet to send me a book to read which helped enormously while I was sick. As my thank you, I’m returning her book, adding some for her to enjoy, and including some extra key fob pieces I have which she can’t find at her local store so she can make new key rings.
Works in Progress
I’m helping with a school project called The Flat Stanley World Tour Project which I listed as one of my goals in one of my January posts. It’s a project for the first graders at a school in Canada attended by the daughter of Angie (Norththreads blog) which they created after reading the book Flat Stanley.
In my case, the version I received is entitled Flat Avery after the child organizing this particular aspect of the project. Flat Avery arrived at my house on Saturday via Norway which is quite exciting. I am to take Flat Avery out in the Tucson area and photograph her in action in my community and collect souvenir things to include in the package I’ll mail on to someone else. How fun is this and such a great learning tool for the children!
I’ll be out and about with Flat Avery today. She is going to get her eyes checked at the ophthalmologist, see what cacti looks like, and have other assorted adventures.
Can you see Avery’s little paper self on the right in the picture? So adorable.
Projects are in the works for the Special Olympics to be sold to help raise funds for this worthwhile endeavor. My sister and I have made this an annual tradition to work on together. She does stained glass art pieces while I sew things. Last year I made sets of quilted patchwork coasters to donate.
Are you working on good deed giving projects? I’d love to hear new ideas that you are willing to share.
