L is for Linus

Our Brownies loved making blankets for babies this year. We made No Sew Fleece Blankets and donated them to our local Project Linus chapter.


My local rep accepted the blankets and told me the ones we made would be on their way to Japan. I was bawling by the time I made it back to my car. You see, we finished the blankets weeks ago (okay, maybe months), well before the earthquake. I've felt terrible that I haven't had time to drop them off. But now I know they were meant to go to Japan.

It's a great project for little fingers just learning how to tie. Disclaimer: this picture is not one of the ones we made.

That's wonderful. My daughter had so many wonderful years with the girl scouts. So many good memories.

I love the no sew fleece blankets because they're super easy. I love how they're on their way to Japan too. That's awesome.
