Iowa Flood Relief

Thursday I delivered more knitted and crocheted items from Double Ewe and my Culver's KnitWits to Carol Anderson of Cottage Creations for distribution to victims of the Iowa floods. We spent the afternoon opening several stacks of boxes still unopened. She has received items from all over the United States and even from England. The response has been overwhelming! We completed the process of sorting everything into bags, hats in one, mittens in another, etc. When we were done this is what her house looked like. Her husband just shook his head and said, "Be careful what you wish for."

Her upstairs hall. You can't see the bags in the adjoining bedroom.

The dining room. The kitchen. Her husband's workshop. She had already given 700 items to the Salvation Army. Saturday she had arranged for several people to help her deliver the rest to the Salvation Army and Red Cross who will be in charge of distributing everything where needed.
