Happy Valentine's Day to Lavender Wool
Yesterday Women Matters received a wonderful gesture from the ladies at Lavender Wool. I just had to share this with everyone. What a wonderful idea and thank you so much. Women Matters were supposed to meet last Tuesday for a day of hooking brooches but we came up against Mother Nature and you know when that happens sometimes we just don't win. As it turned out the freezing rain they were forecasting never happened but we had decided to cancel. We are together again on Monday and Tuesday of this coming week. Our generous donation of "valentines" wool will probably be used for our garden of flower brooches that we hope to churn out to raise money and awareness of the Women of the Congo.
By the way, did anyone see Ben Affleck on Anderson Cooper last night? It would appear that he has also decided to speak out about the atrocities happening in the Eastern Congo.
Happy Valentine's Day to all that read this, to the ladies at Lavender Wool and to the Women of the Congo....you are in our hearts.
