Sewing Kits for Tassie

The online group I belong to "Friends in Stitching" have put together kits to be distributed to fellow stitchers affected by the recent fires on the Tasmanian Peninsula. The sad part about this post is that more fires started up yesterday so it's not over yet.

Here's my kit, I've also added scissors and needles since taking this photo.
The stitcheries for each of the 27 kits were kindly donated by Helen Stubbings of Hugs 'n Kisses.
Helen has been rewarded for her generous nature by being named Barnardos Mother of the Week. The nomination, prepared by her eldest daughter, highlights Helen's passion for helping others. Helen is a great role model and a lovely friend. Congratulations Helen, I'm so proud of you and your gorgeous Miss M!
