#300pencilcasesforAfrica update

Hello All,

It snowed, yay!!! well maybe a centimetre or two but thats good enough for me, still counts!

Just thought I’d give you an update on how we are doing with the #300pencilcasesforafrica 

I put out a call for any sewers to help me out on my quest to give the kiddlings in Kenya a real treat.

I was so touched by the response. I had the wonderful soisewedthis regram and constantly plug the efforts. As a result the lovely Cathy made 10 of the most beautiful pencil cases along with her daughter.


The very same soisewedthis made a whopping 25 cases that are winging their way to me as I type. They are so gorgeous with fun linings.

I have also had a lady that I know knock up 20 in a day!! Can’t wait to see those! And another from my children’s school making another 20! And not forgetting two of my lovely friends Dawn and Katy coming over to help me bash out as many as we can on Thursday.

Here are my humble offerings although I am still sewing like a maniac to get another 100+ finished by this Saturday.

So people, the running total is an amazing 159!!!! So we are well on the way to achieving the 300 needed.

God bless you people for the lovely comments, the help, the prayers or just for looking. Have a great day!

      They are leaving on the 13th so I would have to drive them up on the 12th. If you can get them here by the 11th then absolutely otherwise they can always be used for Sri Lanka or Kazahkstan. God bless you for helping lady!!
