I am pinching myself right now because my calendar says there is only 7 more days until we leave for Zambia, Africa! SEVEN!!!!! Yikes! I still have so much packing to do.
At the end of the week of camp with the kids, we give our two Zambian partners a small gift in appreciation for all their hard work in translating and helping us with the kids (we each have our own group of 12 kids all week). This year I decided I wanted my gifts to be a little more "from the heart" so I made these little zippy pouches.
I used this tutorial from Kelby Sews. Very straightforward and I love how they came out!
Also, we are allowed to have 3 fifty-pound bags for our checked luggage (that's a lot!!!) and they encourage us to fill all the extra space/weight with things that they desperately need over there.
A friend gave us a $100 Visa gift card so we went to Costco and bought as much as we could. My picture doesn't show it very good but this is a lot of stuff!
Our dentist gave us 570 toothbrushes!!! So cool!
I'm so excited that our trip is finally here!!! I feel like I have so much to do still but I know it will all come together. I still have another finished quilt to show you so hopefully I'll find a few minutes to share that with you this week.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
