I have just received a package of cool ties that I sent to the address we had been using successfully the past few years. Please DO NOT mail items to that address. Until I find another contact or women's group there, I am continuing to make aprons.
If I cannot mail them to the Afghan women, I plan to sell them locally and use the money made for postage to mail packages to other soldiers. If anyone reading this knows of a contact or other women's shelter overseas please let me know. Otherwise, I'm turning my focus on the kids' quilts for Haiti orphanages--as far as sewing goes.
