Items 1-5 = my first preemie hats. The back 2 are a little bigger and may be suitable for "regular" sized babies...but anyway, these will be headed to Robyn for her drive. These also represent my Nebraska charity!
And then my Illinois charity -- 10 ferret toys. Now, the directions said to use plastic Easter Eggs. Well, I looked all over and couldn't find any even though there was a lot of Easter clearance stuff around (ain't that always how it goes???). I kept thinking that there had to be SOMETHING crafty people use that would be plastic-like, and sure enough, I found these:
They are bead holders, and they have little lids at the top. They're even Easter-colored, kind of!! So, I filled up 10 of these little tubes with beans and then crocheted around them. I hope these are okay!
Hopefully all of this will go out in the mail this week. So there we go! :)
