With November almost into its second week, I realise I ought to get my act together and finish off a few little projects I had stitched with a view to sending for charity sales. This year, I signed myself up to make some items for two Christmas fêtes.
One, “Les Blouses Roses” raises money for a hospital. I made a few decorations for them in 2010 and again in 2011 BUT the 2011 fête didn’t take place, so I put things to one side until I got the green light for 2012. They will be having a small stall this year, so here’s what I’m sending: a little framed design, four little ladybird coasters in serviettage, and various tree decorations.
For the second good cause . . . it’s a cat shelter: “Les Cat’pattes du 49”. They are looking for xmas-themed, or cat-themed items to sell to help raise money to keep the shelter running . . . so today I finished off the two monochrome designs I had stitched into small wooden trays, and am sending some tree decorations along too. Le Bleu came to inspect . . . more interested in the tinsel and ribbons than the actual sewing ^^
