I Was A "Blanketeer For A Day"

Today the Dale Area Leaders & Entrepreneurs were sponsoring a
"Blanket Day to Benefit Project Linus"


So I packed up my sewing scissors and headed down to the town hall to help make blankets.


Project Linus is a non-profit organization that provides new, handmade washable blankets, quilts,and afghans to children ages 0 - 18 who are seriously ill traumatized, or otherwise in need.

Volunteers known as "blanketeers" hand-make the blankets during organized community events.

Yes even men were there helping cut fabric, tying  and doing whatever needed to be done.


It was a very fun filled and rewarding day!!!


When I left the group had made over 125 blankets!!!

Thanks to D.A.L.E.
(Dale Area Leaders & Entrepreneurs)
for sponsoring this wonderful event!!!

Until Next Time
Happiness is a healthy
mental attitude, a grateful spirit,
and a clear heart full of love.
Prim Blessings
Robin

Holy blankets!! Wow! I can't imagine that much fabric in one room! What a sweetie you are to give of yourself in that way. When I worked at social services, I used to see several of those blankets come through - and it always touched my heart - and I wondered about the people who gave of themselves to do it. Now I can say I know one....and it doesn't surprise me one bit it's you... ;o) Smiles & Blankets of Hugs ~ Robin

Robin,

I'm sure the kids that receive the blankets can feel all the love that goes into making them. What a wonderful community project to participate in.

Have a wonderful Sunday.
