Mountain Baby Blankets Update

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for helping send baby blankets to teen moms in Appalachian Kentucky. Thank you for being a part of a grassroots movement designed to warm the bodies and the hearts of poverty-stricken children. You are doing a very good thing and I am proud to be working with each of you to do it.

On to the pictures!

and these are in addition to the 12 receiving blankets by Cathy Holt.

Holy cow.

Look at these beauties!

I don't have all of the pictures yet, but I have a list going and so far, 24 blankets have been sent to the Christian Appalachian Project on behalf of Mountain Baby Blankets. Thank you, Ladies! It is amazing.
A kind gal set up a Mountain Baby Blankets friend group on Facebook, so be sure to look for it there.
Also, I have set up a Flikr group, where we can all post photos of the blankets we send. You may upload them there directly instead of emailing them to me if you'd like. Find it here.
