Theodore Kids 'n' Cushions!

good afternoon!

as most of you know,
earlier this year
i organised a collection of handmade cushions
for theodore ...
a town in central queensland
that had been badly affected by the floods in january.

after sending quite a few up there
we found out that there was a need
for cushions in the youngest classes of the local primary school.

with a lot of help from my bloggy friends
we sent along 35 cushion covers
which were filled by jenny sams and her friends up there
and given to the nanango primary school.

a couple of days ago
jenny emailed me with this photo
of the kids at school
with their cushions...

{sorry about the quality..
i don't have winzip on my computer
so couldn't unzip the original file
so just had to copy the little pic that was sent}

all of you who made these covers
can be proud of the work you've done
to bring smiles
{even if staged, some of}
to these little faces.

what can't be accomplished on our own,
can be done together!

have a wonderful wednesday today...
