The call was sent out to machine embroiders world wide to make free standing lace snowflakes and send them to a Connecticut PTA in order for it to create a winter wonderland for the children's return to school in Sandy Hook. Even though this in no way could make up for what occurred there, I thought it was a nice gesture. Plus, it did make me feel good to do this. So here are the snowflakes I made and shipped off. I heard yesterday that they are no longer accepting snowflakes since they don't need anymore. Hope mine arrived in time for their use.
