Some things for you to remember: If you are a crocheter (my spell checker says that isn’t a word) or knitter and have yarn left over from your projects, you might want to take it to the Extension Office to be put toward a good purpose.
Extension Homemakers have been asked to make shawls for the Indiana Organ Procurement Organization to give to those families who have donated their loved ones’ organs to those who are in need of them. If you would like to help out by knitting or crocheting shawls, you can pick up the pattern at the Extension Office and then leave them there when you are finished. This must be new yarn.
Another ongoing project is puppy pillows. If you have new stuffing, or would like to buy a bag or box of it, it will be put to good use. If you would like to sew up some to be stuffed, or donate fabric for this, take it to the Extension Office. We will be stuffing them during the fair. Fabric must be washed, must be new, and must be cotton. The fabric must be in a pattern that kids can relate to; animal prints work well.
Extension Homemakers are a busy bunch of people. This is our annual Home and Family Conference at Purdue. There are two of us going this year, which will be the last year it is held at Purdue. Future conferences will be in Indy.
After this week it is back to the grind and back down to the business I’ve been putting off lately.
