This is post #12 in the GeneaBloggers Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I like to quilt and my main quilting project is too big to work on most of the year. During the warmer months, if I have the time to quilt, I’ll instead make baby quilts for Project Linus. Though small, it is often Christmas time before these projects of mine are completed and ready to send to the organization.
Project Linus provides handmade security blankets to sick or traumatized children. I’ve created three quilts for them. One year, near the holidays, I sewed Project Linus labels onto dozens of donated blankets before they were sent to local hospitals. If you are a knitter, quilter or crocheter, please consider donating one of your creations. Anyone else can make a donation of time or money to this organization as well.
