Photo 28

I posted the ponchos and dresses today to Little Dresses For Africa UK - a new charity I stumbled across.  

I was only going to send the ponchos to them and the dresses to Dress A Girl Around the World but the lady who co-ordinates DAGAW is away for 2 months and has asked people to leave posting anything until September.

I don't like things hanging around so I sent everything off to the one charity. 

I really enjoy making the ponchos and it's a good way to use up bits of wool. I like them all but my favourite is the lemon and lime. 

Time to put the hook down now and pick up the needles again for another round of angels.

  1. They are so gorgeous Suzanne. You really are very generous with your time and efforts.
    I picked up a needle of a different kind today. I had to sew the waist button back on my shorts. Last week when I bent over to unstrap Lily from her car seat it went ping! I think I might need to try harder at eating healthily. X

    1. Thank you Jules. I'm sure your button wasn't sewn on properly to begin with :)
      I heartily recommend embracing elasticated waists, the only trouble is the elastic tends to expand too comfortably and I speak from experience! I think I need to get back on the scales again - then because that's the easy bit, do something about the numbers! xx

    1. Thank you Tania. They're really easy to make as well, one of those things I can make while watching TV :) xx

    1. Seems strange sending woollies to Africa doesn't it Janice but one of the volunteers over there has asked for them because it's quite chilly in the mornings and the evenings. Apparently they also have a summer and winter - although I bet the temperatures for both are nothing like what we have. xx

  4. Love all the colors in the ponchos, but the one in shades of purple has to be my favorite!

    1. Thank you Bless. I have lots of little bits of wool left over so I think the next one will be multi-coloured. xx

    1. Aww thanks Sadie. I've said before it works both ways because I get something out of it as well. I'm being selfish this week though and making myself a sparkly poncho. xx
