This past weekend, we were delighted to be a part of the annual Make A Blanket Day put on by our local chapter of Project Linus in Raleigh, NC. Project Linus is an organization devoted to comforting kids and teens facing serious illness and trauma with a gift of their own handmade security blanket. Since our local chapter was founded by Susie Holmes in 1996, area "blanketeers" have donated over 27,000 blankets to local agencies and hospitals. Their recent Make A Blanket Day was a huge success, and we were so excited to present our finished quilting bee blanket created by members of our Greenhouse community!
