It's been a good day!
Today was a great day!
In the mail today came these two adorable quilts from Jeanne! Thanks so much Jeanne, they will surely bring a smile to some child's face! So bright and cheery, you can't help but smile when you see them.
This one is named Pretty Pebbles!
This one is Spinning Wheels!
Also today, was able to meet Susan, whom is in charge of the NICU and Peds unit at one of our local hospitals. We will be taking a delivery of children's quilts and preemie pads / quilts there in a couple weeks. The hospital is one of the largest NICU units in the state.
Our chapter's Yahoo group is also growing, with more members joining yesterday and today! I've been busy uploading files, pictures, etc. for the last several days. Anyone that would like to become part of our chapter for Quilts For Kids here in Lincoln is welcome to join the Yahoo group. Members of the chapter, can donate a quilt just once, or as many times as you'd like. Kits to sew up are available upon request, that contain everything needed to make a quilt, except the 1/8" low loft batting. If you'd like to help out, but don't have the time to make and donate a quilt, there are other ways to help as well. We always can use child friendly 100% cotton fabric, flannel to make preemie pads with, sewing accessories, or even monetary donations would be greatly appreciated. Any items donated to our Lincoln chapter go to children in NE.
I did manage today to get a little sewing in too!
