Here are a couple of the charitable projects I’m working on right now in case you’re interested in joining these efforts.
Stitches on the Bridge

Homecoming Scotland 2009 celebrates the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns’ birth as well as Scotland’s rich culture and heritage. I’m contributing towards this to honor my family’s heritage.
Stitches on the Bridge is an effort to cover Skye Bridge with knit or crocheted scarves of specific dimensions as part of Homecoming Scotland celebrations. Skye Bridge links the Isle of Skye with the mainland in the West Highlands of Scotland. The panels will be installed on the bridge on Oct. 22 and dismantled on Oct. 26. All items made will be sold to raise money for local charities and community groups.
Deadline: September 25, 2009 (your project must be received by this date at the latest)
