Fall is Here......

Fall is rounding the bend and I for one am very happy to see it!!  We have very hot summers here in South Carolina and many of us dream of the cooler temps and less humidity.  But along with the joys of the season comes the need for more blankets, hats, booties and more.  Our winters are typically mild here but little ones always need to be warm and secure. 

We have had some exciting happenings in the past few weeks.  We had another young person work with us on a community service project and that is always exciting.  We received another box from Louisa and her friends in Italy.  As always the quilt tops and orphan squares are just beautiful!!  Many of them are the perfect size to be used for our Preemie Quilt Drive.  We also had a delivery of materials from Sara and it included so many gorgeous fabrics, yarn and many special things we rarely receive like ric rack.  We can put all of these to good very good use!!

Anita and her quilters are buzzing away with the Preemie Quilts and I believe we will exceed our wildest dreams this winter.  It is so exciting to see the pictures of all of the sweet little creations as her groups puts them together.  How wonderfully dressed the NICU's will be this Holiday Season and Christmas!!

Another exciting development is that we have found a wonderful lady - actually someone I went to high school with, who adopts a group of Army men and women.  They will be returning to Afghanistan this November and we will be sending blankets to help this project.  We are so honored to help Cherry and her husband assist these young people and hopefully ease their burden just a little.

Stay tuned - we are very busy and things are coming and going.  More pictures will be posted soon - be sure to watch the Flickr feed on our blog.  As always, if you would like to get involved and help, please do email us at or visit our site at BPSC.CO.  There is always lots to do and we can use every pair of hands we can get!!
