We're Alive!

As March draws to a close this week (how did that happen?) I do want to post again and give an update on what has kept us busy over the past 3 weeks.

*We now have 96 kids in our 'Wrapped in Hope' birthday quilt program--all but 5 have quilters--Charlie's birthday is May 31 and he needs a quilter ASAP--any takers?

*I just spent 9 days of Spring Break in Grand Rapids hanging out with my kids and doing loads of Margaret's Hope Chest related business. One highlight of the week was presenting the 'Wrapped in Hope' program to the West Michigan Quilters Guild. I brought along 20 quilt tops and they were snatched up by 20 quilters who will finish them in time for the next meeting in May. This was a fantastic encouragement to us- and a huge amount of work spread out among many!

*Recent quilt givings include:
-A quilt to a family who lost their 24 year old son after complications from a surgery.
-A quilt to a family who's mother went missing at the beginning of the month--she never returned from work and no one has seen her since--HOPE is all they have at this point.
-9 'Wrapped in Hope' Birthday quilts were sent in March.
- Quilts were given to two women suffering from breast cancer.

I just learned of your project. I'd like to make a quilt for someone if you can send me some info!
