Patterns for Paws

The Lily M. Foundation is joining efforts with the Purebred Cat Breed Rescue in the Patterns for Paws fundraising project. Knitting and crochet patterns will be available for a donation. Profits will be split equally between the organizations.

I am pleased to announce the first available pattern: Ivy League Sock Pattern by Wendy D. Johnson of Wendy Knits. I had the honor of test-knitting the pattern, and for someone with limited experience in lace, I found this pattern to be a breeze. It's not complicated, but there's enough of a pattern to keep it from being boring.

To purchase the pattern, which is $5.00, click on the Add to Cart button, which will take you to PayPal. The pattern is available only through download (to keep expenses low).

Thank you for your support.

A Foundation Update

It's been a while, hasn't it? Well, I just want to give a brief update as to foundation happenings. The Lily M. Literacy Campaign has awarded its first scholarship. It went to Dawn Giddings of Wellsville High School.

Generous donations of Lily Pads continue to come in--and go out. The troubled economy continues to force people to make decisions that no one should really be forced to make. Pets are being abandoned or even euthanized because of the inability to buy their food. Lily's Friends is working to establish a relationship with food pantries in which we will donate pet food for those in need.

If you look at the right of this post, you'll see a yellow button reading Donate. That's right, now you can make your donation to The Lily M. Foundation, Inc., via PayPal. If you'd like your donation to go to a specific project, please indicate so in the Comment section.
