I've needed to post pics of the donations that I have received so far for the Charity Blitz 2007 April Charity- Habitat for Humanity. These items were donated for the Greater Worcester (MA) Habitat for Humanity's charity auction, which is in May. Check out http://www.thinkscience.org/CraftsterPics/habitatauction.html for more info on the auction.

The first items I received were a set of pen and ink drawings, with a couple of pencil sketches, too, from an anonymous Craftster. They are lovely! The photos don't do them justice!


Next up are several crocheted items donated by EowynUlysses. The stuffed cupcake plushie is big (pencil in pic for scale) and would make a great pillow! The shawl is a nice navy color and has a pretty shawl pin with it. The "I <3 the environment" hat is just adorable, as is the striped hat of many colors. The beret is made from recycled linen and cotton yarn.


Thank you so much for your generosity!

And, it's not too late to donate an item, if you're interested! I am headed outside to take the sander to an old night stand to transform inot something more interesting looking (I hope Wink ).

And, I thought I'd share my own donation...clearly a work in progress...

This is a nightstand that is getting a makeover and this pic shows it just after I started to attack it with sandpaper. I finished sanding it yesterday, and today some guys at work sawed off the bottom part that had some cracks and water damage. I plan on attaching little legs to give it a bit more height...

Well, I didn't manage to get the nightstand finished in time for the auction. So, at the last minute, I finished up a Jordy bag and donated that instead. No pics because it really was at the last minute. I finished stitching it up, hopped in the car with the donated items and made it to the Habitat office right at 5 pm on Monday. Unfortunately, I didn't get to go to the auction (I had a stack of papers to grade and progress reports to finish), so I don't know how it went.

And, on another note, my students and I have completed 14 Snuggles blankets (with a few more pretty close to being finished). School gets out in a month, so we'll be delivering them in the next couple of weeks, I think (a little photo-op and some positive publicity for the school, too!).

Now, I guess I need to check out the current charity and see what I can work up. I've fallen a bit behind. I stilll have my Afghans for Angels to work on- I have everything I need, I just need to start it.

Here's a photo of the Snuggles blankets that my 7th grade students and I completed. We made 18 blankets in all, and I'll be dropping them off at a local shelter this week. Most of the blankets are crocheted, but one student knitted 3 of them. It was great fun to watch the students sitting in little groups working on their crocheting and chatting away!

Oh that's fantastic! Way to go for getting your students involved too! I wish my teacher would do that. Grin
