Linus in May

The Linus Connection on Saturday was quite a whirlwind (Linus Show & Tell -there are thank you cards from kids, go see!).  I think that was partially due to my being so busy last week  By the time Saturday rolled around, it was a continuation of The Busy.

If you caught Wordless Wednesday last week, then you know I had 9 quilts to bind between Wednesday and Saturday.  Despite working and having a sick kiddo, I still managed to get them all done!




9 Quilts – binding PWND in less than three days!  Quilted by Marge L. (individual photos below)

This is the end of my Go Get Granny and Log Cabins For Linus posts.  It’s been amazing and I cannot thank you all enough for your generous donations!  Anything I’ve received after the cut-off date has been donated directly to Linus.  Unfinished projects have been and will continue to be shared with other volunteers so they can be turned into finished quilts and afghans without moldering in my craft room until I have time to get to them!

Of course, if I receive a really amazing (finished!) quilt or afghan in the mail, I’ll share it.  It’s just my way!

And now, quilts and afghans that were donated, sorted and distributed on Saturday, May 15, 2010.

Go Get Granny Update #1

Starknuts Ghan for Linus

I’ve finished the very first Go Get Granny afghan for for The Linus Connection. All the blocks for this blanket were donated by members of the Livejournal community Starknuts, who decided to have their own block drive in support of Go Get Granny!.

The ends aren’t woven in yet, but I’ll get that done tonight and then it’ll go out with other donated blankets this coming Saturday.

It includes blocks by dragonsinger954, archerpren, hpfan_poa and ladyoflosttimes. (I hope I didn’t miss anyone!). Thank you all so much!
