Handbags for Hope

The county Sheriff's Department is sponsoring a drive to collect new or "gently used" purses. 

The purses will be cleaned if needed and a tag with  the domestic abuse hotline number will be sewn to the lining.   Local children who might be  in difficult situations will be given a chance to choose one to give to their moms on Mother's Day. 

My daughter and I thought this was a great idea and easily found nine to add to their collection.   I've invited the ladies in my quilt class to bring theirs to class next Friday and I'll go deliver them.

  1. Darn, I give mine away when I buy one but this time I am keeping my little purse and the big purse I got the other day. Good idea
