A couple of years ago I decided that I would love to corresponde with some of our Red Hat sisters abroad. I started communicating with a wonderful lady in South Africa. When the horrible rains came last year and there wasn't any shelter, food or clothing she set herself a task. She took thousands and thousands of heavy duty green garbage bags and duct tape and showed the people how to make sleeping bags to stay warm and dry. She traveled all over to do this on her own. She did this selflessly. I am so happy to report that she is a type that would never seek recognition but was indeed recognized for her generosity.
I then got acquainted with a Queen mother and her daughter from one chapter and a second Queen from another chapter in Australia. As of this week they have made me International. I have sent my first chair back covers "down under". I have taken the libery of inserting some samples so that you will know what I am talking about. I have gotten so wrapped up in doing the art that I forget the time. It's great to do what you like. If you have one of these on your chair others definetly know the "seat is taken". Have you ever been at an event, put something down to mark your place" returned to find out your things were moved to another table! At one time or another it has happened to most of us.
Have a great Red Hat Day.
A great day for chocolates*
