Another Batch of Aprons Heading for Afghanistan!

This is the next batch of aprons heading overseas! Several of these were made from fabrics donated by Michelle, Evelyn, Debbie, and Susan. The second apron that ties on the side was made by Freda P. in California. Thanks so much to ALL who are donating fabric AND postage to keep this project going!

This was the last group sent along with a few baby blankets and some pillowcases for Tammy and whatever Soldiers she wants to give them to.
We must take care of the care takers, too!

Look at These Faces!

This is Cpt. Tammy Lanning with some of the children about to receive lots of blankets and clothes during yesterday's shura (that's a village meeting). Doesn't Tammy's smile just warm your heart?

More Aprons Made It!

More aprons have reached the Women's Center in Afghanistan! OK, they're a bit wrinkled, but when I pack a box, there's no room for air left! The apron Tammy is holding is one of the first sent--it's the one to the far right of the main photo above. Amazing!

Apron Labels

This is the label that I'm attaching to the aprons I make. I hesitated because some regions are so strict the word "women" cannot even be written.
