    I’m sorry May’s figures are a little fuzzy as some data was lost with server problems between 30th May and 1st June. We think that most “mislaid” inputs have been redone, so they will appear in June’s stats. Apologies if yours have disappeared!

    Total morsbags made in month = 3708 up to 29th May.

    88 pods added morsbags to the global tally. They were –

    Welcome, it’s great to have you join us in the worldwide effort to reduce the use of plastic. In this case, we’re working to substitute washable fabric bags for plastic carrier bags, as an easy step towards reducing plastic’s short term use in many forms. All forms of plastic use reduction are fantastic and well worth doing.

    Congratulations squared to the pods appearing on both lists, new pods and productive pods! You haven’t let the grass grow under your feet – well done! 😀

    At least one new pod registration got lost in the server mishap – if that was yours, please have another try!

    Interesting comments

    This new pod has an interesting story. Q4CL writes –
    “Making bags for care leavers attending a Lemn Sissay (now Gold From the Stone) Foundation Christmas Day dinner to carry home their quilty hug made by the members of Quilts for Care Leavers, and for use for their shopping, laundry or whatever.”

    What a great project, and with plenty of forward planning.

    Thank you for giving us an update on the total each month Beattie and what lovely names for some of the pods.

    Hi there! I’m so glad my pod made it on to the list – HSNF Christmas Project 2020. I created the pod on the 25th May, and I’ve been gathering together material and buying cheap curtains from e-bay like crazy, so now have a lovely stash to get started on. The aim is to make 100 bags by the start of December 2020. My son rides at a special needs farm, which is run as a charity, but obviously the users themselves don’t have the resources to be able to help financially. I help the farm out with a few things but for the past two years I’ve also provided all the Christmas presents for the users with a budget of just £1 per person. I’ve already done the gifts for this year (wildflower seed bombs) so my mind turned to 2020, and the Morsbags are perfect! Decided to make my first, trial bag for a friend for her birthday, particularly as she’d looked through the fabric and pointed out a piece she liked. She also knows I’m going plastic-free so she should really see this coming! I got the sewing machine out yesterday and despite finding that it really isn’t as well as it once was, managed to do part of a bag before having to stop. Found a new sewing machine online and it’s arriving today, and as I’ve never had a new machine I am really excited! Looking forward to editing the pod tally shortly!

    Welcome Sue! Thanks for letting us know how you’re getting on. I’m sure you’ll be able to meet your goal for Christmas 2020 (what great forward planning 😀 ). I hope you like getting to know your new sewing machine as well. Making morsbags is a great project to get to know the basics of using your sewing machine.

    Hi Sue, a great project for you and your new sewing machine. With over a year to do it I am sure you will meet your target.

    Best of luck to you and the farm.

    I see you finished your first bag, Sue. 😀 Congratulations! How did you get on with your new sewing machine? I hope it worked OK for you. Well done for getting going.
