Blankets For Brianna

I am so behind on my blogging but all of the posts I have in mind aren't nearly as important as this one.

I sometimes have a love-hate relationship with Social Media. In this case, it was love. My friend, Becki, "invited" me to an event called "Blankets For Brianna". I looked it over briefly and thought it sounded neat. A chance to crochet blankets for babies... awesome!

Truth be told, I didn't really look at the information until about 3 weeks ago. That is when it grabbed ahold of my heart and took root.

In January of this year, Laurel and her husband suffered an unthinkable loss. Their daughter, Brianna, was stillborn. Their faith is strong and their hearts are full of love. They want to help others that have suffered the same loss or that have a very sick baby in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit).

Take a few minutes and head over to Laurel's Blog. Read her story and about "Blankets for Brianna". You won't be sorry that you did.

If you like to knit, crochet, make tie blankets, sew, quilt etc please think and pray about donating your time, money or crafts to this beautiful cause.

Here are my first 4 blankets. I have a bunch more in the works...
