This makes all our hard work worthwhile. They had 18 people go to minister to the homeless in Chattanooga Tennessee. They had chicken noodle soup, chili , chicken and dumplings and cupcakes. they also had clothes to give away. I didn't go but I have another mat ready. My heart hurt when I saw this picture of the lady laying on my mat. I'm so thankful God led me to do this. Thank you again to the people that saved bags and made plarn.
Thank you Glenda for the two bags of plarn, back right. I made the rest of it. Now to start crocheting. I think I'll have enough to make three mats. This mat was made with Glenda's plarn #9 . 31 things for the year.
Glenda and I showed the after school kids at Moon Lake School how to make plarn and crochet a mat. The top mat #6 has the plarn they made in it. Thank you Moon Lake School for your help.
This makes 30 things for the year.
This is plarn my friend Glenda and her friends made for me. Glenda's church visits homeless camps and brings them clothes and other items. I think they may take food as well this time. She wants me to go the next time but I don't think I can. I'll stay home and work on more mats. I forgot to post that they helped make plarn on the second mat as well. Thank you to everyone that helped, it really helps me out so much. Out of 21 balls of plarn I had 5 balls left. I also made this one 2 1/2 feet wide instead of 3 feet. It takes 16 balls of plarn to make one mat. That's a lot of bags. This makes 26 items for the year.
This is my first plastic mat. I made it to wide and it's not that straight. It took two weeks to make it. I've got another one started that is not as wide.
READY TO GO
I still need to get this afghan made as well. I need to make some hats to go with the mats. My friend's church will be handing out more things for the homeless around the middle of Feb. and again in March. She is helping me make the plarn so I can hopefully make this mat faster. The mat makes #14 donations for the year.
