Do you remember when Jenny and the Gum Tree Designers created their Springtime BOM for Fresh Hope? Well, sweet Cheryl from Willowberry Designs put me in touch with Mary from Fresh Hope, and I created a pattern for her wonderful ministry too.
Fresh Hope is a wonderful organization, helping mums and children stay together and getting them healthy. The name of the organization is exactly what they offer to these families. Truly something I can support with my whole heart, and small talents.
This is the pattern I created for Fresh Hope, the Seeds Of Hope Hand Bag.
And here is my 'designer's statement', the reason I chose to support them.
Since the birth of my two boys, I’ve realized that motherhood is the most important role of my life. The future of the world starts with our children. That is why I decided to support Fresh Hope, by creating and donating a pattern. The help, caring and devotion that Fresh Hope gives to mothers is something I am very pleased to support. In my own small way, I hope to make a contribution to their great work.
The design on the front of my purse is dandelions in the seed stage. The seeds scatter and produce a miracle of new life, bringing the hope and promise of beauty to new areas. I think they’re a lovely little flower, sunny yellow and cheerful, and I love their persistence and endurance – both excellent qualities. To me, it epitomizes the work that Fresh Hope does, bringing these qualities and a new life to mothers and children in need. The seeds of addiction and hopelessness are blown away for the promise of a new life, a ‘fresh hope’.
The pattern will be available soon, it's going to the distributor this week. You can browse Fresh Hope's pattern index here, or check at Under the Mulberry Tree, [put Fresh Hope in the search box on the left], or go into your local craft store and ask for a pattern. Creative Abundance is the distributor, the store will contact them and Creative Abundance will send them the pattern.
I want to thank Cheryl for putting me in touch with such a lovely ministry, and for the opportunity to be a blessing!
I hope you're all having a Tickled Pink Tuesday - join with me and my partner Cheryl at Polka Dots and Rick Rack and tell us what's tickling you!
