Small gifts for victims of Victorian bushfires.

So much is being done for the people who lost everything in the Victorian bushfires in February, and sometimes you want to do something but don't know where to begin. There are many crafty people who are busy making quilts and gathering sewing paraphernalia, to donate to our fellow stitchers who may have lost all their gear in the fires. I decided to appeal to the members of the Fabric Postcard Groups on the Stitchin Fingers website. I asked them if they would make a postcard as a small gift for a bushfire victim, post it to me, and I would organise a way of passing them on to those who will appreciate it. You can read what I wrote here on Stitchin Fingers
I had responses from the U.S.A., U.K., India and the Netherlands, as well as all over Australia. This week in the mail, the first of the postcards arrived from Michelle, in New Hampshire, U.S.A. She is a very generous soul - here are her five postcards, all signed on the back from her whole family.

These cards are really cheerful, should bring a bit of light into someone's life
