Stripes with a great cause

A couple months ago I saw this adorable zebra that an old friend of mine had made & put on her blog. I just had to make one! It took a lot longer than I expected but I am sure, now that I have worked out all the "kinks," it will not take as long when I try another one. I am very happy with how it turned out. It was worth all the time. (It only took a week & I only worked on it a little a day. After reading what I typed it sounded like it took months. HA!) Baby cakes loves her zebra & it makes me happy when she remembers that I made it for her.

Look at this cute tail. Love the bow.

My friend, "Cookie," is sells these & other animals at her Etsy shop. Right now she is giving 100% of her Easter Bunny sales to help one of her worship leaders at church as she ministers to her family living near the nuclear power plant in Japan. These people have experienced more than I can even imagine. Some have lost everything, including loved ones.
Are you like me? Wondering what you can do to help, other than send money. The sleepy time gal has a GREAT idea. (Thanks for the info Cookie) She is having "friends" send boxes of everyday things. Baby cakes & I are getting a box together today. I encourage you to do the same & to keep the Japanese people in your prayers.
