Thanks from Larga

Happy New Year!  I want to let you know two things:

1. The kits and everything else you made for Larga this year were very well received.  Here is a note from our liaison there:

Thank you again for the sewing supplies, materials and furs that you have supplied over the past year. It is difficult to put into words how much these items are used and appreciated. Our ladies have made many things from fur mittens to amauti's, all of which are used by family and friends back in Nunavut. It has been a wonderful experience for all and certainly provides a great therapeutic value to the overall healing journey of our patients. The most recent donation was enthusiastically received by the many patients who benefited from‎ these items. Thank you to everyone involved in this project. Amazing!!

2.  I don't know if I ever told you about where your stuff goes when it goes up with the ENTs.  I got this note from our contact there: 

Olive Wade of Moncton, NB, I didn't open your sweaters because they were packed with hats.  Thank you!

J McKiltrick of Edmonton AB, I think this is your first contribution, thank you.

Ok, our favourite Washingtonian, Jackie Lambert, sent us these super warm socks.  She wrote "With love" on the card.   Jackie, WHN is loving you right back.

Don't you love Dr Peg?  Peggy Wallace of Oakville ON sent us all of these neck warmers and socks, along with a beautiful sewing basket and some crafting stuff for Larga.  Peggy, I absolutely loved the sewing basket.  I want to show it to the gang on packing night.  Its kind of art.

Sabrina (Knitphomaniac) of Mississauga is a regular now.  Thanks Sabrina!

Wendy Genge of Smoky Lake AB sent us these warm hats and sweaters (the ones below are hers too).

Okay so now I have a problem with the last few.  Maria Koulis are these yours?  Maria dropped by just as I was packing and I got a bit discombobulated in my labelling.  Maria, the hound loved you.
