my creative space :: contribution

waiting to become library bags
 
This stack of fabric is cut and waiting for me to sew into library bags for all the classes at my son’s 3+ kindy. I’m pretty thrilled to be able to help out – especially in such an enjoyable way – and knowing that so many students, a little over sixty them, will have a library bag sewn by me is exciting too. I am making a small contribution to their literacy and that makes me feel good.
 
There are lots of creative contributions being made over at Kirsty’s place … go on over and take a peek!
