A few weeks ago I received an email from Lyanna, telling me about a project that she's working on. She works for the Bair Foundation, an agency that helps foster children in Central Virginia and they would like to give each child a stocking for Christmas that they can call their own. In years past the children were given paper stockings that were thrown out after the holidays. But this year Lyanna and the staff have made it a goal to give each child a handmade stocking, one that they can keep and use year after year. So she is organizing a stocking drive through her blog, Purple Panda Quilts, and her goal is to collect 50 stockings by December 1.
Can you help and make a stocking or two? Lyanna is posting weekly tutorials on various ways to make a stocking and there was a brand new one yesterday for a cute appliqued version. As an added incentive, everyone who donates a stocking is eligible for some great prizes.
