Charity Crafting Lap Throw Finished



Charity Baby Blankie - finished
 Back on the 15th, I posted about the current charity crafting project I was crocheting (see this link).

This past weekend, I finished it. I had originally planned to put this one in the stash for the hospice items. I have 3 piles: homeless, babies, and hospice.

But as you can easily see, this one just cries out to cover a little baby whose mom needs some extras for the little one. I do like how it turned out.

There is one for the hospice, in progress, that I am working at my Friday morning sessions with the other gals. That one is in shades of tan, gold, white, and similar colors.

This diagonal stitch is a really great one for when we are making something and using up small amounts of colors. It makes something that could be just “home made” look really appealing.

You are so kind, Jennifer. I am only part of a tiny group who makes things to distribute to our local needy - in fact, I need to post our 2014 totals this weekend - I finally got all the numbers in one place (lol). We always, always seem to "find" or "receive" yarn donations for these...amazing, isn't it? Hugs. Evie
