Rugs made from squares...
The boxes and bags also contained, beanies, bed socks, scarves, nappies, soaps,toiletries,cosmetics,
A few items in indigenous colours, more beanies, scarves, crocheted slippers/bed socks, baby blankets made from polar fleece and flannelette, and some sports socks.
I had spent a bit of time during the week, tying bed socks together in their pairs...it's amazing how easily pairs get lost so we tie them together until they are handed out.
The group were given a big bag of items from the school community of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart at Darra. As well as beanies and baby cardis, these lovely people gave us bag and beanie sets...all knitted.
Here's a closer look at the lining of the bags...all the bags were lined! Absolutely beautiful. My job was just tying the beanie and bag sets together.
All the items I handed in today are the result of lots of people helping in what ever way they can. Such people power is very impressive.
Peter was concerned that we didn't leave empty handed, especially as his and Karen's lounge room had 2 huge boxes full of donated yarns...I brought home a big bag of yarn for my wonderful 'out workers' ...I'll be around to their places in the next week or so handing out yarn! Lol
