Don't mess with my turtle!!!

It's that time again...
Craft Hope has launched Project 8
and we're jumping in!

If you recall, we contributed a set of number beanbags
For the Liberian Orphan Education Project.
All together Craft Hope sent nearly 200 Beanbag sets!
As the Chooch would say...
That just tickles my socks!

This time round they're making it easy...
So easy that all you need to know is how to sew in a straight line!
Or crochet or knit (but that's sooooo not my thing!)

We're making rags

and we're helping clean up....


Some dumbnuts outrageous mess!

That's all I'll say about it cause I don't want to turn this into an
Effin and Blindin sort of post!

Craft Hope Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time

Craft hope will be collecting rag donations and delivering them directly to the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies who are working hard to protect our dolphins and sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico.

Choochmagooz is Hoping to send a Big Box...I Mean BIG BOX!
So here is how you can help too...If you're local, contact me, I am willing to cut and sew if you're willing to donate your old towels, t'shirts, cotton or flannel baby wraps. If you can sew too all the better. Ask for donations at your schools, at your churches and everywhere in between.
If you can't sew and don't have anything old kicking around...perhaps you'd consider dropping a few coins in the bucket to help me out with shipping. Anything makes a difference.

If you're not local....Go on
get your friends together and get collecting!


For all information please visit the Craft Hope Website via the button above.

And may I just share with you one of my all time favorite photo's



This picture of Fhubby and a baby sea turtle was taken well before I met him, but It always captured me and made me think what a bloody good man he is and how.... yup...that's father material that one!

....all for the love of a turtle!

I have a yard of terrycloth I can cut and hem if you want me to. Just shoot me an email with an addy to send them too. I am sure we have old shirts around too.
