Needlework Tuesday - No, it's not hunting season
Speaking of kids, it's Adopt a School time at Indigo/Chapters and Coles stores across Canada. You might be shocked to learn, that schools are funded very little when it comes to library books. Many schools get less than $1.00 per student for the entire year to purchase new library and class room books. This means that the research materials in their libraries often has been there since you and I were at grade school.
Every dollar that you donate goes directly to a high need school. All administration costs are borne by Indigo. They also gives the schools a generous discount at the time of purchase. Please click the link for Adopt a School, and make a generous donation to the school of your choice. The children you help today will be the ones running our country in the future. You can also visit your local Indigo/Chapters/Coles store and make a donation in person.
You might wonder what this has to do with Needlework Tuesday. Well, I have donated these two pillow covers to the Chapters store where I work and they will be used in a raffle draw to earn money for our adopted school.

Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
Mister Linky is waiting below for a link to your current needlework post. If you prepared a post last week, go ahead and add a link to it as well. The more stitching to look at and enjoy, the better.
