A few weeks ago, I wrote about my young friend, Maggie, in my post for the Show Your Stripes blog hop. I mentioned that 12-year-old Maggie is working on a charitable project to bring 180 zippered bags (filled with supplies) to a school in South Africa. I also noted that she would gladly accept donated zippered bags.
Ta-dah!!! Along comes Nikki, a generous, lovely quilter who sent 6 wonderful, quilted, zippered bags (and some pencils) for Maggie to include in her project. Nikki’s bags are each quilted and then lined, making them sturdy and “fluffy” to hold. The additional ribbon on the zipper pull gives them a nice, finished touch. These donated bags are fabulous and fun. What a wonderful way to use up scraps and give to others!!
Nikki, thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have shown your creativity and kindness by sending these to Maggie for her project. The bags are currently in her hands and will be filled and sent to South Africa real soon.
