Judy, Rose, Lindsey and Dorothy from Kansas sent in a box for the kids. In it are many wash cloth and bib sets, some adorable booties, and a gorgeous blanket and matching cap.
The hats and bibs are from Judy. Dorothy, Lindsey and Rose made the wash cloths and booties, and Rose made the lovely quilt.
Thank you, Ladies!!! Your donations are so appreciated and will be very cherished by the moms who receive them!
Karen from California sent in another package for the kids. Karen has been making hats for the babies, but just tried her hand at making booties as well. They are just darling and will be wonderful to help keep those newborn feet toasty this Fall!
Thank you so much, Karen, for your continued support!

Project Linus is a wonderful charitable crafting group that does some great work!
Project Linus is comprised of hundreds of local chapters and thousands of volunteers across the United States. Each volunteer and local chapter all work together to help us achieve our mission which is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer "blanketeers."Pam Braden, the chapter coordinator for Project Linus in Flushing, Michigan sent us 12 beautiful baby quilts and blankets for the newborns. I'm a sucker for a handmade quilt, so I was absolutely delighted to open the box and see the beautiful things inside. There are gorgeous hand-made quilts and beautifully edged fleece blankets. In this and the next post you can see the beautiful items sent in from Project Linus.
This is not the first time that Project Linus members have sent blankets for Marine Corps Kids. They have supported us often throughout the years, and we appreciate all the donations that we've received!
