CHRISTMAS IS THE TIME FOR GIVING AND THE ISLAND BATIK AMBASSADORS ARE IN THE MOOD

This month's challenge for the Island Batik Ambassadors is to make something (anything) for Charity.

When I think of Charity as in giving I am thinking of like March of Dimes, the Hospitals, Linus etc...

I was lazy, I wanted something near enough to me that I could take it straight over and not have to worry about forgetting.... 

So the thing that popped into my mind was the Wesely House where my mother is living.

It is an assisted living place.

When they get enough items they have an auction.

The residents get paper money throughout the week.

Winning at Bingo, Finding the Elf on the shelf are just a few ways to earn this money.

Then they have an auction.




All the ladies love my mother's little puppy.  So I decided to make a puppy and donate it to the auction.


I was so hoping you would not notice the dust on the table (blushing here)...I guess I could scoot the dog over the top and take care of that table.


I just love the various Island Batik fabrics and who doesn't love pink???

I am sure there is a store near you that sells Island Batiks to find out just go to their site and click on find store.  I know you will love the fabrics like I do.

That is so cute. It will be a great addition to the assisted living center.

She's such a cute pup! Love the batiks. There will be a bidding war over this little cutie. Dust? What is that? Oh yes, that protective furniture coating.

Beautiful fabric! Such a cute puppy! My granddaughter would love one! Is there a pattern? Such a wonderful gesture on your part Barb! Sometimes I visit the nursing home people I know. I have gotten out of that habit. I need to do better! I feel like sometimes our elderly people are forgotten! Hats off to you for kindness!

That is a great idea. When the husband's grandmother was in the home we would send little things and they would be prizes for bingo.

I love your puppy! And, you don't have to pick up after it.
