Welcome

Hi There and Welcome to my blog.

I started this blog in order to get any updates, information, and progress to you, dear readers.

There are many volunteers behind Project Linus.

Hopefully you will get to meet a few. . .

Where do quilts and blankets go?

Project Linus quilts and blankets go out far and wide. Here are a few places they go out to in Scotland. Please bare in mind that this list is ever changing. We (as coordinators) try to reach children most in need of comfort. If you have any suggestions of other places these would be most welcome.

Sew Inspiring Uk

Don’t forget to join us through the next four issues of Sew Inspired to create this stunning sampler quilt (perfect for beginners!) and make a positive difference for sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers through Project Linus UK (www.projectlinusuk.org.uk).

If you’ve got a homemade quilt or knitted/crocheted blanket, then please consider donating it to this wonderful volunteer organisation. More details can be found on the Project Linus UK website and inside issue 11 of Sew Inspired. Available here: http://bit.ly/2HvvSYn ! 😀 #Quilt4Kindness

Apologies

Winter is great – the sunny frosty mornings, lack of pesky flies, cosying up with family and friends, even the snow! It used to be my favourite season. This winter however has not been great for me and I’m sure a lot of others.

I have been very ill with different infections, pneumonia and even the dreaded flu. I’m desperately looking forward to another season!!

It has been hard but I have made sure my duties for Project Linus were covered and everything has been delivered on time.

I would like to apologise to anyone that has slipped through my net. I am now well (at present) everything is back to normal and running smoothly.

Hope to see you soon!

 

 

Eve – Thanks

Alexandra Turner to Project Linus UK

“This is our little superstar Eve who had open heart surgery at The Evelina Children’s Hospital on 20th October. Receiving one of your beautiful blankets in the intensive care unit during this difficult time provided more comfort than you could know. One of the colourful and bright patches has unicorns wearing jumpers! This was the first thing a few days after her surgery that made Eve smile & giggle, it was a smile we had been desperately waiting to see and for that we couldn’t be more grateful to your amazing team at Project Linus UK for helping our little girl find her smile x x x”

Luna – Edinburgh – Thanks

Anna Welander to Project Linus UK

“I wanted to write a message to thank you for the beautiful quilt we received whilst at the sick kids hospital in Edinburgh. It was such a stressful time for us when our daughter Luna had to be admitted. She even spent her first birthday on the ward! When I realised that the quilt was ours to keep I was overwhelmed. As a keen crafter I know just how much effort goes into making something like this and the fact that a stranger had done this… well I don’t really have the words! Thank you thank you thank you. You are all completely wonderful people.”
