Since I originally posted my idea about the Mountain Baby Blankets project and the babies in Appalachian Kentucky who very much needed our blankets, the following has happened:
- 60 people have contacted me, asking to help
- Our project has been highlighted on Heartstrings, a quilting community
- 1,023 people visited this blog on Friday
- 20+ people have added a Mountain Baby Blankets button to their website (send me an email if you want the code)
- 6 quilts (3 crib, 3 twin) have been marked for shipping to the CAP
- 12 receiving blankets were banged out by the talented Cathy Holt (aren't they cozy?!)
... and countless more of you are working on making a contribution to this great cause as well. And this is only a week in! Amazing. Let's keep it coming! Thank you!
I will be establishing a PO box for shipments within the next couple of days and will share that when you email me, ready to ship. Weekend crazy and a child with a boo-boo got the better of me this weekend, but I am resolute to have this done ASAP.
