Do you have extra 14 ct. aida for HONDURAS?

I already posted this at 123stitch.com, but am hoping to get some response from my blog too! :)

Forgive me for not retyping it, but it's a lot! :)

As some of you know, DH and I do lots of summer mission work with teenagers. We are heading to Honduras the end of July, and have the priveledge of working with young mothers in the capital city Tegucigalpa.

The place where we go to work, is run by a native Honduran. She daily feed 30-40 children that live in the surrounding area. She has been trying to reach the mothers in the area and she asked my DH if anybody would know how to teach the moms CROSS-STITCH!

WAHOO! :) imagine that, xstitch and me and mission! Can we say perfecto?!

ANYWAY! We've found a really awesome pattern that we are going to use with the ladies. Hopefully to be able to sell in their market place.

All that to sum up... I need pieces of 14 ct 17 by 13. The pattern only uses one color of thread, so I am going to go through all that DMC I bought when Walmart was going out of business! :) But if you have any needles and or cheap little scissors you might want to contribute, that'd be awesome!

We know for sure there will be 10 ladies there. But I'm hoping to leave them with enough supplies to make some more. Plus I'm going to take a few books to leave with them that have much smaller projects.

Would you want to help? Email me! :)

White/cream/ecru aida would work best. Sara

I have a few pieces of cream Aida. 24x24 I think. I also just inherited a bunch of older charts that I am going to do nothing with if you are interested. I also have a table cloth and place mats I don't know what to do with that has 14 count. Let me know if you could use them.

No joke?!? I sent a box of stitching supplies, kits, threads, fabric and needles via train car to Honduras last month. I am going to Honduras on 7/4. Can't hardly wait. It'll be my first mission trip. We fly into that city, but I don't really know where else we'll be going. We'll be building houses and (what I can't wait for) going to the dump to feed people. When is it you go?
