Making Silent Auction Baskets and Other Things

100_1878
This past weekend my church had their big annual fundraiser for the debt free building fund.  I always make several baskets to donate for the silent auction.  This next weekend is my family’s MDA fundraiser in southern Illinois.  I always donate a lot of things for that fundraiser too! Here’s a few things that I have been working on…

The Mizzou basket…set of four potholders, two badge reel clips, two decorated kitchen towels, 10 bean bags, two glasses case, a black and gold clutch purse…

The beach basket…all things blue and seashell-y!

I am still working on more baskets…a pumpkin basket, a patriotic basket, a fall fun basket, some felted wool acorns in a mason jar, wool mittens, a bride dress up basket, lots more! 
I am linking to these great parties!
