    1. Thank you too Carolyn for supporting this advocacy. To write and entertain my readers makes me really happy; but to write knowing that i am creating awareness and making a community rally against certain cause is really making me the happiest writer.
      Thank you..😊

      1. I’ve started working on a new project… The one org I got the idea from actually can’t use what I made because they only wanted plain ones. But I can’t do plain… I’m working with strips of plastic yarn…(that I cut in various widths depending on the thickness) cut up plastic bags and make mats 2.5 feet by 6 feet for those who need 🙂

        I may keep my first just because I made and corrected some ‘errors’. But now I sort of know what I need to do better. I’ve be using a Q needle (for macrame) – but I think there actually is a larger needle to crochet the plastic with. I’ll have to look into that.

        I actually cut my bags differently. I cut the whole bag into one strip tapering the ends and then twist the new piece with the existing piece on the mat. Learn something new everyday 😉

        I’ll try to remember to take a photo when I’m done and email it to you. 😀
