Looking For a Service Project?

We are heading into one of the busiest times of the year.
My house and business are a mass of
lists,
deadlines,
appointments...
It's enough to make your head swim.
 
You say,
"Who has time to take on anything else?"
 
And I agree that it sounds overwhelming,
however,
so many of you that read this
sew,
knit,
crochet,
paint,
craft,
encourage,
uplift,
you name it.
We all have a gift!
Share it this season!
 
Below,
I am going to list all my favorite service projects
from years past.
 
What will I do this year?
Right now, I have no idea,
but I do know that there are a lot of crafting supplies
calling my name!
 
This is the most popular post on my blog,
close to 12,000 hits! 
Shocked?  I was and am as it continues to grow.
Thrilled?
Yes!
That means that there are all the more people receiving these much needed bags!
 
 
Every nursing home is happy to get these! 
 
If you knit, these are literally
a one to two hour hat!
 
 
greatly appreciated at schools and homeless shelters!
Make them tiny and donate them to your local hospital.
 
The last one I am sharing is
 
Pillowcase Dresses
 
 
These are such a fun project,
however you do need minimal sewing skills.
 
Many churches make these and I am sure that I can help find distribution for them
if you are not able to find a place to donate them.
 
 
 There is the
Linus Project
They will take the tied fleece blankets
as well as quilts and afghans.
 
 
 
I have had two grandsons receive these blankets
and believe me,
when a sick baby is in the hospital
with a tired and scared mother,
nothing is more welcome than that
clean, soft blanket
and knowing that someone cared enough to make it.
 
Take time to look
and
find
your project this year!
 
Comment below with suggestions
and
send me links of other projects
and I will publish another post of them!
