More Blanket Families

Hi! I've been busy making fleece edged blankets, and I've just finished these. Many times the preemies are born in multiples, so it's nice to have blankets for twins/triplets/etc. They're each different, but they might all have the same fleece, but different yarn, etc. The green ones are neat, because they're all from the same piece of fleece, but the material would change colors gradually like that. All the fleece in the pictures were donated for me to use for charity, and I will be giving these to our local Project Linus shortly. Thank you to all who donated!!!


Hi! I haven't written in a while, but I've got a few more blankets to share. Since the last time I posted on here, we've found out we're having a baby, and we've been getting ready for that little bundle to come along late Feburary. Needless to say, crochet for charity has been put on the back burner, but I've been itching to get more blankets done for the foster care kids in our area. Last night I had a dream that I was fostering 6 children, along with raising our 2 1/2 year old, and pregnant with another one. It was just like when I taught school; the kids were all about the same age. Without further ado, here are some of the blankets I've finished for foster care kids. Thanks for reading! If you'd like to join our crusade, check out our yahoo group (link further down the page) and we'd love to have you join us!
The fleece blankets are all made from donated fleece that I put the crochet edging on, and the last one is made from donated squares all joined by me. They look great!
