Open House Charity Blanket
The members of Open House Craft group posing with the wool blanket they made for charity. This large blanket was a group effort: with different squares made by different people from left over wool. The charity organization Resto du Coeur appreciated this international effort with people from nationalities from all over the world contributing to it. They loved the colors and said the blanket would go very quickly to someone who really needed it.
This is not the first our attempt to help homeless people – OH Craft group also made 2 warm baby blankets earlier this year and donated to the families in need through the charity organizations.
