Project Linus



On the second Tuesday of every month a group of women gather together at Paula's to cut, stitch, and clip fabrics. The work of their hands results in blankets that are given to children who are needy, sick, or abused. I'm not sure who is blessed more, the children receiving the blankets, or the women who make them.

You don't have to meet with a Linus group to contribute blankets. You can work on blankets at home and deliver them to a "drop off" point in your community or mail them to another Linus chapter. They accept quilts, afghans, fleece blankets, and more.

Is there a Project Linus organization near you? Consider giving of your time - you won't be sorry!



When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
Matthew 25:31-40 (ESV)

I am going to check this out!

I know how to make that kind of quilt!

Deanna,

I started that quilt yesterday at the meeting, and finished it today. Our Linus chapter provides us with fabric or yarn to make the blankets so that no money comes out of our pockets. You really should look into it!

That is so cute! Is it flannel or fleece?

What a very great thing to do.
