You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

When Charity Calls

One problem with my plan of  "Finally Finishing" every project I have ever started is that more often than not, the intended recipient has either "grown out of" or grown beyond" the intended item.  In many cases I have the pattern, material and accessories but lack anyone in my life that would want or appreciate the gift, therefore forcing me to look elsewhere for a home for my project. This was actually easier than I thought  It would be. The internet has a plethora of charities looking help. Not only have I found many deserving charities but I am making significant progress with my "stash busting" efforts too.  I have found many places to assist starting with:   Enactivist   
founder of the 
"Immigration Yarn Project." 

Hot of the needles is my contribution to their "Banner Project" which will be held in San Francisco later this year. 

Pattern is by:  The Stitch Hiker All profits from the  sale of this pattern will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center

Join Enactivist in mounting the nation’s largest yarn-based work of public art in honor of our rich immigrant history.

Share the Love!
