That is wonderful Sandy!! Thanks so much for posting this for us all to see.

Jess and I both received the following email from my niece at Harmony Home this week and I thought you ladies would like to read it as well.

Hey guysI just wanted to let you know we have received 4 more quilts in the mail.  We are truly thankful you guys are doing this for usas a matter of fact we have decided to make our toy closet (where kids can get a toy after they are interviewed) to a blanket closet.  We think this would be more comforting to the children, so if you guys have any other type of blankets someone would be willing to donate, we would really appreciate it!  I was supposed to let the ladies know that we received the blankets, but do not know how to get in touch with them.  Could you please email your group and let them know that they did get here, and please remind them that I cannot send them a picture of the kids with the blankets, but I do have an ideaI think I am going to photograph them in different rooms of the center, so they also get to know the program and what it looks like.  I may even take them with staff and give a little blurb of what the staff members do that helps the kids, and maybe what the meaning of the  quilts are to them.

Thanks and I love you guys, and we are looking forward to getting some more quilts in.  They are truly beautiful pieces of artwork and are very special to us and the kids. 

P.S.  I can try to keep up with who got the quilts from the closet, and I may send you a write-up of the child and what they were going through.

So glad the quilts got there.  Thanks to you and Shawndee for letting us all know.  It really would be nice if she could take pictures of the rooms and let us all know more about the kids.  Thanks again Connie!           Sandy

Connie-

Thank you for letting us know that the quilts arrived. I was a little worried about the 2 that I sent. I guess I should have at least put my email address in the box so she could have let me know they got there.

I hand delivered four more quilts to Harmony Home this afternoon. Shawndee showed me around a bit more and talked to me about what the quilts mean to the children they help there.

I delivered the beautiful star quilt that Sandy did the gorgeous quilting on, the little quilt with Mary's animal blocks that Miki so gratiously quilted for us, and two precious kitty quilts that Donna was generous enough to quilt for us. They are all stunning quilts and Shawndee told me she knows a young lady she wants to have the star quilt right away. She said it is a horrible situation and the quilt will mean a lot to this young girl.

Jami had asked me if they could use any baby quilts and sadly enough they can. They not only need them for clients but they will use them in the playhouse for the little girls to play dolls with. She said any type of blanket would be well appreciated as they want each of the children to get one. She showed me one of their interview rooms and one of our little John Deere quilts was spread across the back of the little couch. The kids can cuddle under it while they go thru the interview process and then pick one of the other quilts from "quilt closet".

Shawndee wanted me to pass on the sincere appreciation from the entire staff at Harmony Home and promised some pics soon of the quilts in different rooms and with some of the staff. I told her how much you ladies have enjoyed making these quilts and she teared up a bit and told me that there are no words to express what these hand made items of love and comfort mean to the precious little souls they see at Harmony Home.

WELL DONE SNUG SOCIETY!!!!!!

Connie

I am mailing 2 I spy quilts today to our Contact in White Clay NE. One quilt is from the September blocks. It measures 49x49 and the other from October.  It measures 56x56. Both of these quilts are backed with flannel and very warm I felt they would be put to great use in the NE weather.

the pictures of these quilts are in the I spy threads.

Congratulations everyone it looks like we have finished and delivered 16 I spy quilts.

Hi Moderators,

Do you have a list of the quilts delivered for your charities this year? If not, we can try to get a good summary from the threads. I want to post about it in the newsletter. I know our success in 2008 is going to drum up support for the project in 2009!! Way to go everyone!

I just received the following email from my niece at Harmony Home. I am so excited to be able to share it with you ladies and I know it will touch your hearts as it has touched mine.

Good morning!  I just thought I would share a story with your group about one of the quilts you guys made.

Sarah first came to Harmony Home about 2 years ago.  She is 17 now, and is severely MR.  Her mothers best friend had been abusing Sarah for about a year when she finally told someone.  Sarah has been with us for counseling ever since.  About 1 year ago, her mother called us and told us she had stomach cancer.  She is doing fine now, with a lot of trips to Dallas in her future, and is slowly recovering from her abuse.  Last Monday, her mother called again to let us know she lost her house to arson.  Almost everything in the house was destroyed.  Sarah was very sad when she came in to see us because she had lost everything in her room.  We gave Sarah a quilt to take with her and she just started crying.  She kept asking I can keep this?  I get to take this home with me?  She was very grateful for the quilt, and we were thankful that we had something so beautiful to give her.

I cant tell you how much these blankets mean to these hurting children, and to us.  We are very thankful for your group.  You are truly a blessing to us.  Thank you for all you do.
