Sewing for Oklahoma!

  I ran across this link today from a post on Facebook, and I'm sharing it with you all. If you sew at all, this is one way to help the victims of those horrible tornadoes in OK. 
 The also have a printable tag to attach to whatever you make so it will go to a child or someone who wears that size. 
 I'm thinking I'm going to make some kind of simple dress or dresses. I'm sure most of these people/children had to take a lot of used clothing in the beginning because they were left with nothing. There's not a thing wrong with used clothing, but I'm sure it would thrill any of them to receive something handmade.

This is the Blog link for the clothing items, and this is the main Blog. Go check it out to see if there is some way that you can help. 
 They also have a Facebook link from the blog page. 

 I just can't imagine how awful it was during those tornadoes, and especially at the school where it hit so hard. I know it was terrible near here a few days before, and my daughter and her kids had to stay in the bathroom for a while. A tornado touched down in several places, and the area had horrible hail storms. Just look at these pictures. I've never seen anything like this. It happened about 25 minutes from us.
 Yes, that is all hail! Notice the eerie fog too! There was an elderly man rescued from that mobile home. This was all so minor compared to OK. 
  I'm praying they don't get anymore storms, but it's not looking so good for them right now. :(

You have such a HUGE heart! What a blessing!

Can you even believe tornadoes are returning to the same OK area? Enough already...this is such a trying time for us all.

Thank you for the visit sweet friend. I will always love PINK...always.
