Off to Africa


This past weekend, Sherry did some shopping for things Hannah was in need of and that she wanted for everyday living.  My assignment and contribution was to pack it up and send it on its way to our Peace Corps volunteer.  Toiletries, some spices, M & M Peanuts, etc., along with spatulas, magazine, peanut butter, parmesan, tums,  etc., really mostly everyday things that we so take for granted  were packed in two large flat rate USPS boxes.  I added some Mike & Ike candy (had never heard of it), Sour Patch Kids (she used to get those when at the movies) and some Skittles.  One thing she wanted were things for her walls - so I did some shopping in my closet and came up with these bright wallhangings that I think she will like.  Both of these were done in classes our guild had in the past.  The little one with flowers was in a Mickey Depres class several years ago, and the scrappy one in a class by Gwen Marston.  So they will now grace Hannah's wall in Mozambique.  Her 22nd birthday is the end of this month - I hope she gets her box of goodies from us by then!  (Click to enlarge)

Hannah is going to love these bright colored wall hangings. They are beautiful. I love the flowered one. We take so many things for granted here. I'm sure she will love to get all these wonderful things whenever she gets them.
