Oooooo
what about "Craft it forward" where we make/do something like this
http://www.sewitforward.co.cc/

Which could be a RAOK or a gift :wink: (for a b-day) or something for the likes of Nicu or womens refuge or ??????? the list would be endless.

Craft it forward is a lovely idea :) In fact it's something i just may do anyway, as we were loaned some really sweet wee handknit clothes while we were at chch women's after DS was born and it would be lovely to create some new tiny things to be leant or gifted to other mummys and bubs who need them :)

:lol: I'm not sure anything has been decided.

I have done a couple of "round to it" items - a High Vis Vest for James & Emily (finally, though it's one of the more recent WIPs :oops: ).

For years (eek :shock: 3 years 8-[ ) I have planned to do some sewing &/or knitting for SANDS (viewtopic.php?f=43&t=22448) and am yet to make something, so I WILL do something this month!

Father's Day - not sure at this stage what we'll be doing, better get crackin' on that too I s'pose! :whip:
