Patricia Underwood replied to Patricia Underwood's discussion BLANKET ROOM 2024
"100 Blankets from Wilma Gilson and her ladies. Ronda says "Each blanket includes beanie and handwarmer sets to match - an incredible effort which we are blessed to benefit from once a year at least. Wilma and her husband David drove all the way from Pretoria to deliver these gorgeous sets. Every single blanket had been washed and smelt of fabric softener - just beautiful, and will be such a blessing to the little ones. Wandi will be distributing to another Thembisa creche next week and will take Wilma's sets - about 80 children will benefit."
I'll be posting in groups of 25 photos over the next few days."
