Christmas Stockings Flying to the Troops!
Well, after our last mtg in November, I gathered up the Christmas stockings we were making for the troops and counted ...75 !! Good job ladies!! This photo was taken by Fran B who will be filling them and sending them on to the troops, since I was such a twit for not taking a photo of them before packing them up.
All but, three were fabric--- some quilted, some not. We even had a few tiny red crocheted/knitted 'pouches' to put a candy cane in. We sent them off yesterday to Fran Benson, who's with Operation Care Package, to fill them with all kinds of goodies and send them off to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. I really hope this is the last year we need to do this. ... (as in 'end of the war', and the troops can come home!)
