Charity items to Lil Troopers

These were sent to Lil Troopers a Florida charity that provides going home outfits/packs to three military hospitals. The Mickey Mouse quilt panel was perfect and fun to do both patriotic and baby cute. Who doesn't love Mickey? The booties are knit and were also fun. I have made red, white and blue hats for the troops before but these tiny booties were much more fun and lots quicker too. The camo sweater sets were a departure from my idea of appropriate baby colors, but after I heard how much they were appreciated by the military families it was all good. Living and learning go hand in hand. It is just soooo good to have these on their way finally. It is always a challenge for me to get the items sent off once they are finished. So that is progress and a good feeling.
