Yep. FORTY-SIX Bundles of Love to be exact. Fabric, yarn, and a few other sewing supplies all bundled up, heading to Afghanistan tomorrow. The boxes are now all loaded in the car, ready to drop off at the Post Office.
Thank you to everyone who cleaned out their cupboards one more time to share our abundance.
Do you want to help out? Go check out http://ibol.wordpress.com/ . You don't have to send forty-six. But I'll bet you and a friend could put together one! :D
Make it a wonderful day!

Here are the CD weavings my students made. I love the variety!
Each student made at least one. As with every artist and every project, some worked more quickly than others. I cut out "needles" from plastic lids, then used a paper punch to make the "eye". The flexible needles were easy to use, and the large eye made threading easy enough even for my youngest students.
The artists changed yarns as frequently as they wished, but I encouraged them to finish the yarn on their needle just to avoid wasting it. The knot was tucked in under the weaving.

I think I'm addicted. Making these has been so much fun!
I've been weaving on CDs. I wanted to come up with a weaving project for my Art Club classes that we could do in a shorter time than when we've built looms.
