Monday - Project Linus

The second Monday of each month is Project Linus night.  The local chapter is run by Altrusa - a local business women's group.  Blankets are given to them by all sorts of different people, including several nursing home groups.  Once a month we sew labels on them and attach tags explaining Project Linus.  Last night was a relatively small batch of blankets, so we were finished early.
The blankets are given to several local clinics and hospitals for them to give to children who are in the hospital for whatever reason.  The blankets have to be machine washable and hand-made.  It's amazing to see some of the gorgeous items that are donated to Project Linus - some of the quilts and yarn items are beautiful.
