The first picture is us (Winnie and me) delivering some quilts to St. Anne's Shelter last Saturday. This mornings paper had an article and photo of St. Anne's showing sleeping mats covering the lobby floor in anticipation of an overflow need for shelter due to a snow storm that began early yesterday. At the very least, there were enough quilts to keep the kids warm!
These two pictures were taken at Archway House. Thanks to the generosity of all the quilters who donated quilts (and their time), we were able to meet our goal of one quilt for each child who spends some time there. The young staff is great with the kids and provide counseling along with a fun sense of humor. All in all, it was an eye-opening yet gratifying day. Now to start all over again for next year. If you have any extra quilts or fabric or batting that you'd like to contribute, leave a comment on this blog.
