Oh My Gosh........

OMG ~ OH MY GOSH!!!  I can't say it enough!!  The ladies in this group are so exceptional that I can't begin to thank them enough!!  We now have a great mix of talents - knitter, crocheter, sewer, quilter and a doll maker!  Sounds like a children's nursery rhyme.  We have been hard at work on our preemie project - we do our best to provide items for a family with a baby in the NICU - until the baby makes it home safely.  Then we plan to send a NICU Grad package - the happiest one of all.  I sent out the call for this project a couple of weeks ago, just after we heard about the birth of the baby.  Well, the items that have been received and that are in the works are just so wonderful.  The two handmade binkies, hats, socks and onsie are so colorful and soft.  We sent these over to our preemie family along with a handmade doll for the big sister in the family and some more preemie clothing.  We were also able to send a gift card from Walmart for incidentals as having a preemie in the family can be quite expensive and not something we really plan for.  Anita has a quilt made for both the baby and the big sister that we will be sending over next week.  This project has been very exciting.  We would love to do more of these but we need more hands working to do that.  Please think about joining us - there is not requirement about how much any member does - just what they can - it all adds up and enables us to do wonderful things!!

This little guy is about the size of a 4-5 pound preemie and he can wear preemie clothes.  He also had a handmade hat and booties.  :o)  These babies are great for older siblings to get ready for the new baby.  He even wear's a preemie diaper.  So cute and snuggly and soft!  He was donated by Vicki Riley of
