Busy, Busy, Busy

Don't take the lack of blogging as a sign of inactivity here at Margaret's Hope Chest. No, we have been busy, busy, busy. We are busy finishing off all of the quilt tops that have been accumulating over the winter and spring months. At the beginning of June we only had 3 finished quilts left to give away. Now we have 20-and the number is growing daily!! I am so thankful to have had a wonderful babysitter to watch my kids for the month of June and a wonderful husband who had the entire month of July off from work. I have gotten so much done! Take a look at some recently completed quilts.

 


 


 


 


Now we have the joy of giving them away. We started last week by giving a few more quilts to the Child Assessment Center here in Grand Rapids (this is the second time we have given them). Basically, they provide assessments to children who might have been sexual abused. They give our quilts to some of those children.
I sent out a quilt today to itty bitty baby Becca who was born very early and is very tiny, but quite a fighter. Here is a link to her parent's blog if you are interested www.babyhill.wordpress.com.
We have identified a couple of other families but we are waiting for addresses.
God continues to surprise and bless our ministry!

I am so excited to see that you sent a quilt to Becca - we found out about that family from our friends in Kentucky and I sent their name to UJE and now it came back to you - this is really cool to see how God works! Great job doing what you do!
