Country N More and Project Linus

I am so thankful for Suzanne from who is in charge of the local chapters of Project Linus. I have been donating my fabric scraps and larger fabrics to this worthy cause. I have been collecting fabric scraps and fabric for another donation. I forgot how many boxes I took this time, but that doesn't really matter. What really matters is that they use everything from the larger pieces, bolted fabric, to the small threads and tiny scraps. The tiny fabric scraps and thread are used to stuff pillowcases, etc. for animal beds. I didn't realize this until we took a donation last year. When I find those pictures, I will post all the quilts on display. These women are awesome and they take time to make these quilts for children. Usually, the room is buzzing with the sounds of women sewing on their machines, women knitting or crocheting blankets, and the sounds of women enjoying their time together.

Helping Children in Need

At Project Linus, a non-profit organization, we provide homemade blankets to children in need. Our blankets are lovingly made by adults and children from all walks of life and many different sources.

Here are some of the pictures that were taken yesterday.
