This post came along quite by accident. I was at Temora library, just to pick up some books for future reviews, plus to help me get started on the Australian Women Writers’ Challenge. I happened upon a serendipitous moment: the Wrap With Love project. It’s a project for volunteers to knit for charity, which you know I love. The thing is, I’ve never seen a display before of a collective effort from volunteers! I was overcome with the impact of seeing the work of many kind hearted people put together.
I should actually be more specific; it’s not just knitters who participate, it’s also people who crochet. I didn’t see the display above at first. I only saw this tiny one below:
Then this one….
…which I felt was impressive within itself! The first photo above is the display I found last, and by then I was overcome with emotion, love, joy, pride in the people who did this. Reminded of the power we all have to make a difference to help others, no matter how small our efforts may seem. I don’t know if I’ll be joining in on this one, as I plan to be busy with the Trauma Teddies (and that’s been put on hold until we move house), but I still think this is amazing and beautiful. I had to restrain myself from spilling these wraps to the floor and rolling around in them like a child. So much texture and love here, people! It was breath taking. Maybe I can spare a square, as Elaine Benes would say.
