This week's gift was a reversible tote bag; it's made of vinyl and is sturdy and quite roomy.
I think I like it best with the flowered print turned to the outside, the other side looks a bit dull, in my opinion.
I can see myself using this tote a lot!
Last October my bee donated heart pillows to Sibley Hospital, to be used by women who have had a mastectomy. The pillows are placed beneath the armpit for support after surgery, during the healing process. You can read about it here.
They were very well received and the word spread, so now we're making some for Howard University Hospital too! Each member of the bee is asked to make at least 5 of these pillows.
It's wonderful to be able to contribute to people in need, but at the same time it's so very sad that so many women need these pillows. If everyone in the bee makes just five, that's 100 pillows, 100 women needing them...
Four more of the flower baskets have been made.
I had my doubts about the one at the bottom right; a more solid gold would have worked better with that red fabric. Oh well, it's pieced and will go into the quilt!
Nine baskets finished - looking good!
Have a great Tuesday, sew forth and sew on
