Mother's stockpile!

I can't show off any of my stitching at the moment although I am itching to do so. Its for an exchange and a snap here would hardly be fair at this point. So instead here's a blog with a difference.
Every year my Mother knits cardigans and sweaters for small children and takes the stockpile to the local Hospice Shop where they decorate their window and sell them for a good price. Isn't that a pleasurable way to make a donation!! The cut off point is usually Easter so this time the colourful jumble looks like this. My favourite didn't photgraph well but I'm sure most children would feel cheerful and warm in this rainbow!
