Stitching Corp is a group that started out sending cross stitched Christmas ornaments to the troops and their families, and now they're accepting other handmade items (bookmarks, greeting cards, key rings, bags for wheelchairs & walkers) all year long. I heard about Stitching Corp via CyberStitchers.com, which has a list of charities that collect cross stitch projects. By the way, Stitching Corp, has a huge list of sites that offer free x-stitch patterns.
I have several ornaments started that I should add to my 2012 WIPocalypse list so I can finish them and send to Stitching Corp.
Did you know that a group of kittens is called a kindle? I just read that on the Battersea website. I also found a few dogs I want to adopt. Did I mention they're located in England? In 2010, they celebrated their 150th anniversary. Wow!
