These are pics of the first items for a fundraiser.
A friend of mine was touched by the pictures of children eating 'mud' biscuits as they were so hungry.
When I heard of this I was also touched.
In a country where we have enough most of the time we can only immagine what it would be like.
I felt the Lord calling me to use the talents he has given me to help these children.
These are the first of the things done.
Round things are dish coths; hexagons are hot stands...then come humbug bags and two key fobs.
the key fobs are hard on my eyes so will not do very many of these.

hexagon friday August 7

First decide on the size hexagon you need.
You will need one of fabric to be embroidered
and whatever you want in the middle.
These are the same size.
Choose backing and make it 1" bigger all round.
Choose embroidery or applique or whatever and work that part.
Put all layers together and fold over twice on alternate edges; pin and iron in place.
Turn other edges an sew all down.
add loop or ring to centre of top for it to hang.
