A great big box from Washington State

A large box of incredible gifts arrived today from Washington State!  It included items made by Delores from Gresham and items made by members of the Holy Redeemer Church in North Bend. 

All of the gifts are delightful!  My sincere apologies if I attribute the wrong items to the wrong crafters, but I believe that they were made as follows:

The photos below show items made by Delores.  They include 3 crocheted blankets, 6 pairs of booties, 2 pairs of mitts, 25 hats, 5 quilts, 7 fleece blankets and 1 receiving blanket. 

These are all so gorgeous!

The ladies from the Holy Redeemer Church sent in 4 darling fleece blankets and 1 sweet quilted cover.

I know that the families are going to be thrilled to receive these

Thank you to everyone who participated.

If I mistakenly mislabeled these items, I sincerely apologize.  Please leave a comment and I will correct the post.

Many thanks to Peggy and Stephanie!

Stephanie and Peggy from Kansas City, KS worked together to make all these gorgeous gifts for the babies!  Two very talented women, indeed!

Together they made 7 crocheted blankets, 3 receiving blankets, 2 wash cloths, 3 hats, and 10 burp clothes.

Everything is gorgeous, and will be packed up for the families soon!

The families who receive these gifts will be truly delighted!

Thank you, Nancy!

These gorgeous sweaters were knit for the babies by Nancy in Minnesota. 

Thank you so much, Nancy, for thinking of the kids and for making these wonderful gifts!  They are precious, and will be on their way to the families very soon!

Thank you to the Girl Scouts

Girl Scout Troop 345 have made so many wonderful gifts for the babies.  Last week another box arrived from them. 

In it were these bibs, wash cloths, burp cloths, hats and receiving blankets. 

Troop Leader, Donna, writes:  "The girls love to crochet and sew it's a giving way to help the men and women who keep our nation safe.  Thank you all for what you do".

I love receiving packages from these girls.  With each shipment from then you can see how their skills are developing as they take on more challenging projects and produce such wonderful gifts!

Thank you so much, Girls, for all you do to support our troops!

Thank you, Eileen

These fabulous sweaters were made and donated by Eileen from San Francisco!  They are gorgeous!!!  I can only hope that some day my work is this nice.

Thank you so much Eileen for supporting our Military Families with your donations to Marine Corps Kids!!!
