|YARN!! Do you see the YARN?! I had a VERY HARD TIME seeing past the yarn, but I forced myself to FOCUS.|
|Beautiful, sparkly lip gloss!|
|Magnets that match my FAVORITE clothespins!!! I LOVE the patterns in this collection!|
|Recipe cards and coasters with HIGHLY appropriate sentiments|
|I quickly put the recipe cards to good use!|
|Fun things I might share with the children |
I was especially excited about the yarn because
|The charity is called Knit-A-Square . They use 8" knitted, crocheted, or felted (out of old wool sweaters or blankets) squares to make blankets for some of the desperately poor children in South Africa. People from all over the world make squares, as close to 8" as possible, in any thick, warm pattern, leaving a 1-yard tail attached for sewing purposes, using any yarn. I made these squares quickly because there is a company called Jigsaw, with a location in California, that has offered to send our squares to South Africa through the end of this year, so I'm trying to make as many squares as I can by Christmas so that I can take advantage of that wonderful blessing!! (Normally it costs just under $1 per square to send the squares to South Africa.)|
Thank you, Lovely Person!!! I appreciate your thoughtfulness and am enjoying all of the lovely things you sent =)!!
*I will be keeping Crappy Day Present senders anonymous so that the sender doesn't have to worry that Person Q is going to see what they (the sender) sent me and possibly feel bad that their (Person Q's) package was not as fabulous as mine ;-). But if you
don't worry as much as I do aren't worried about that, you are welcome to claim your package in the comments!
