AnoTheR AngeL Adds Two

My good FRieND Sheryl donated 2 lovely little Blankets of Love in September. They were beautifully made and I'm sure Shez added LoVe in every stitch.
Shez from "Enjoying Life" can now add an angel to her blog so that everyone will know just how special she is.

This one was made using a pretty owl fabric...

And this one using a colourful alphabet fabric.

I'm sure the grieving family members will cherish these Shez...
so ThAnK YoU !

As the end of the year approaches I have 19 blankets all ready packed to go to the hospitals. As I would like to give 12 blankets to each neo-natal unit in both Newcastle and Wollongong hospitals, I need to complete a few more before December 31st....  so wish me luck !

NeW AnGeLs

Three very generous and lovely ladies have donated blankets to the project so far this year.
Sue ....,
Joyce ...  and
Maria ...
They all have their own reasons for making these small wonders but all will be accepted with LoVe.
Just click on the "Photo Gallery 2011" tab to marvel at their work.
Hugs go out to each one of them........
Please make sure you display the new "angel" on your blog.....
that way everyone will know just how special YoU are!

Donations Handed Over

In October 2o1o, I promoted my yearly drive for donations to this wonderful cause. Two lovely and generous quilters sent along 3 blankets and so today hubby and I delivered all 12 blankets to the John Hunter Children's Hospital here in Newcastle (New South Wales- Australia). This hospital is a regional one which covers an area the size of Britain (that's huge) and sadly the neo-natal unit needed 19 blankets in 2o1o.
I know the offering of these Blankets of Love makes a difference to bereaving families and so I urge anyone interested in donating a tiny blanket to contact me anytime in the future. I am so grateful for the opportunity to help in this manner and it definitely is a "FeeL GooD" programme.

This "Angel" can now be proudly displayed on the blogs of the two wonderful quilters Joyce and Crafty Pug.

ThAnK YoU both... for your generosity!

This unit has 41 beds and over 90 nursing staff.

This beautiful sculpture is adorning the waiting area.
