I'm working on mine. I have 2 cupcake purses done and 2 hats with them. Also, some other hats made in a bag....just need to find the bag and I'll add those in. I have 4 small card games too (memory, go fish, old maid). I will be going shopping this week for some toys too. So far 8 out of 12, but will add more this week too.

I have 25 so far. I want to go to Walmart this weekend to buy a few more things. Would crayons be okay? They have them for 25 cents a box for the 24 ct size!! So I figured a box of those paired with a coloring book from the $store would be an awesome "fun thing" for a little one. :)

Crayons are fine. What a great sale.

Come on ladies and gents, let's crochet (buy) our fingers off. We can do this!!!

Hi all!!! I am here but just not very much. A very long story short, my hubby had severe medical problems, 2 surgeries, spent almost a whole month in the hospital, and literally almost died 2 times within that month. On top of that I changed jobs at the end of April-a VERY VERY good thing for me! (I love my new job!!!)

 

So now that things have "slowed" down and are returning to "normal" if there is such a thing I am hoping to be back on here more and crocheting more.

 

All the toys look absolutely wonderful!!!

 

I just talked to KristieMN and she has a count of 453 plus 2 more boxes that she hasn't counted yet!

 

Thank you all so much for being a part of this wonderful opportunity to make a child's day!

 

Updated through post # 245.

 

So sorry to hear of your husband's medical problems. My thoughts are with you.

My mom's box of toys arrived yesterday and I boxed them up with the remainder of my toys and stuffed them in my car.

Wellll last night mom tells me that the bunnies :rabbit she sent HAD NO TAILS.

OH MY:no so I had to go out to the car, drag the box back into the house and correct all the little bunny butts. Anyhow the boxes are on the way!

FINAL countdown!!

 

I just updated pictures in the toy drive thread!!

 

Any guesses on the total?!?!?

949 toys in all so far!!

 

We are still planning on delivering the toys to the U of M on Tuesday.

Childrens, will either be later in the week, or early next week.... this will depend on how my oldest child is doing. (complications after wisdom teeth removed!!!)

 

Thank you again to everyone who is helping and has helped with the toy drive!!
