Crocheted Dolls & Blankets from Terry

Today I met Gregg's cousin, Pam, to pick up a batch of crocheted blankets and dolls that Pam's sister, Terry, made for our guild to donate to the hospital.
Take a look at the cuteness here:
Can you imagine receiving one of those dolls as a gift when you check in to the hospital?
What fun! They (and the blankets) are going to bring a lot of cheer to sick children.
Thank you, Terry & Pam!

Seattle Children's Cancer Advocacy Network (C.A.N.)

The Seattle Children's Cancer Advocacy Network (C.A.N.) website is LIVE, and it's awesome! Please follow this link and browse through the site. There are interesting pages on the site that will inform and inspire you. "Our Partners" is a group of businesses that have hosted donation cans to help us raise awareness and funds in our own communities. Look for Poulsbo, Bainbridge Island and Silverdale businesses that you know, and please thank them by doing business with them! Every bit of support for the Seattle Children's Cancer Advocacy Network goes to pediatric cancer research! You will find Katie's Comforters Guild featured in the "About Us" tab.

8 New Blankets

We have a special mother-daughter team in our membership:
Mary & Briana.
Briana is our first "junior" guild member.
For Mary's birthday this year, Mary asked family and friends to join them in making blankets for our guild.
Mary & Briana recently made their delivery to Seattle Children's Hospital.
Cozy, cheerful, fun and comforting!
Thank you, Mary & Briana,
 for sharing your birthday wishes with Katie's Comforters Guild and the patients at SCH!

Lucile's Birthday and 27 Quilts

Lucile Nilsen has done it again! She donated 27 beautiful quilts this week. You might be asking, "How does she do it?"
She does it by sewing a quilt nearly every day.
Have I mentioned that Lucile is about to celebrate her 89th birthday this month?
Happy Birthday, Lucile!
Thank you
for your generosity to
Seattle Children's Hospital patients
through our guild!
I hope, if I live to be 89, that I will be as sharp, funny, kind, generous and active as Lucile.
Lucile is modest, and declined to be photographed, so here are some of the latest batch of her gorgeous quilts.
