Donation Chests Are Filling UP!

 There's so much happening, there's only one place to start....we're grateful and overwhelmed with all the love and support around here!!!

Lots of new friends and project fun is going on in the new Sit~N~Knit room, of course. Where two or more yarn lovers are gathered, what else would happen?

It is a real blessing that so many of y'all are coming by to knit and add your creations to the mission chests. Our cup (chests) overflows, really!

Patti came by with a bag full of hats and scarves that she and Mary worked on over the Christmas holidays. They didn't want the chest to stay empty for too long after everything went to Mexico. 

We're also so very grateful to all the Border Stitchers for all their contributions of knitted and crocheted items. AND their additions to our sample items that are displayed in the shop. Lovely work! 

It may seem that sometimes all we talk about here is yarn, tho' that is what God is using to weave us all together, but the friendships and outreach are such a tremendous addition! 

We have also been working on some more "practical" things, like two part donation forms that can be used for these lovely items being put in the chest, or for financial contributions. We are a 501 (c)(3), after all, so every now and then we have to pause a project to do the business stuff.

Here's another perfect story of how things work around here....Our friend JoAnn stopped by with 5 big crocheted blankets that another friend did not want....SO, we called Melody and she came and picked them up for use at the Dump Church. We added the crochet doll from another friend. The week this happened we had a really cold and wet cold front blow in. God and His perfect timing and provision for those kids happened through y'all.
What a blessing!

This is the kind of thing that YOU help happen here. Everyone one of you and every little bit, woven together to serve whomever God brings our way...THANK YOU!!!
Prayers and Purls to you all!
