Labour of LoVe

Two gorgeous blankets arrived this morning from Tricia from HERE.
The quilting on these blankets are perfect... Tricia's always are by the way... and these two are so pretty as well.
Thank You... once again Tricia... you are an amazing & generous lady.

Fabric donated by Irene Peel.
Fabric donated by Maureen Jones.
My THANKS goes to Irene and Maureen as well.
Being so generous has given Tricia the opportunity to add another two blankets to the project.

Delivering Some Blankets

Canberra Hospital is just one recipient of the BLanKeTs of LoVe that are donated to me for this wonderful project. On a recent trip to Canberra I met a lovely young lady by the name of Emmalee who is now in charge of the birthing unit in this regional hospital. I was shown to the storage room where I saw all the wonderful items given to grieving families. Emmalee was very appreciative of the donations and wanted me to THANK each and everyone who has been so generous.
I was also made aware of another area that these fantastic nurses and support staff have to deal with. They need a supply of TINY blankets for the extremely premmie babies... and also for the pre 20 week fetuses. It broke my heart to see the size that is needed... I just never realised that this area of sadness had to be covered too.
I now have a whole in my heart that needs filling... so I will blog about these "tiny" sized blankets as soon as I get the chance to make one.
I will update the "Making Quilts" directions on the sidebar... asap.
