Project Linus Volunteer Appreciation – 2012

Most non-profits will have some kind of annual gathering to thank the volunteers.  Cocktail parties around the holidays are rather popular.  My chapter of Project Linus has a Saturday morning tea in September. The fabulous thing about it is the program filled with representatives…

Blankets 48 – 55

There was a ton – a ton – of donated fleece at Starbucks night last month.  I took eight pieces and managed to finish them all just in time. Nothing fancy going on here.  The Cubs fleece has embroidered logos, which some kid is…

What I Did This Weekend
