Crocheting and Sewing Animals for Children around the World
Pam tells me she makes each animal herself with support and encouragement from family, friends and people that comment on her facebook page.
The Yarn, Material, Stuffing, Safety Eyes and Noses, Jingle Bells, and Name tags are all donated materials from friends, family, the community, and businesses.
Pam's Goal for this year is to "Have fun and see what God does. I don't want to put any limits on God."
Read more about Pam's volunteer work with OCC and how she makes her adorable shoebox gifts in the GlassEyesOnLine November 2015 Newsletter.

I Love this C2C Crochet Pattern
Spring into Summer Blanket by Susan Carlson.
I read about it at Stephanie's allaboutami crochet blog a few months ago and finally had an opportunity to try it out. I used different colors of yarn that were left over from other projects and found a complimentary yarn to use for the border. I'm almost finished and can't wait to give it to my friend!!
Hmm... I wonder if she was a model in her previous life? ( lol )
