Fran and the Ginkgo Foundation

I received a comment on my personal blog a few weeks ago from Fran. She said,
"Nine ladies and I formed a small foundation 18 years ago. This month we made fleece blankets to donate to Katie's Comforter Guild. When my daughter was 11 - 12, she spent a year going back and forth to Seattle Children's and when I told her about Katie's Comforter Guild, she thought that was a terrific idea. I also purchased a copy of your book, 'Because of Katie'..." 
Fran and the other members of the Ginkgo Foundation are donating 18 fleece blankets to Katie's Comforters Guild. Here they are:
Thank you, Fran, and 
thank you, Ginkgo Foundation!

Quilts from Nana Dee

I received a note from Dee, who is a dedicated quilter affiliated with our friends, the Fearless Quilters of Rolling Bay. Dee doesn't live locally, however; she is a ferry ride and a bridge-crossing away, on the other side of Puget Sound and Lake Washington. She doesn't let that distance deter her, though; she supports our guild with her quilting. That is what I call dedication!

Here are Dee's latest creations, sure to delight the patients who receive them:
Dee called this one, "Bug Jars"
This is named "Charley Harper Birds"
Thank you for sharing your quilts with our guild, Nana Dee!
Katie's Comforters (and patients at Seattle Children's Hospital) are blessed by your time and talent!
