Quilters Unite! I just discovered this awesome charity that makes quilts for sick and hospitalized children. Their website is so awesome. They even provide you with quilt patterns and the materials if you need them. Anyone out there making quilts and don't know what to do with them? Donate them to Quilts For Kids. You'll be making someone feel very special and very comforted. Find a local chapter and join.

This past year our youngest was hospitalized for a few days for failure to thrive. It was such a scary time for me as a mom. I couldn't hold her like I wanted to. I just had to sit there and watch her lay in her special crib. Thankfully, University Medical Center in Lubbock has an amazing Children's area and they were able to provide her with toys to entertain her and make her feel more at home. It was because of those toys and the wonderful doctors and nurses that my husband and I were able to remain positive in such a heart wrenching situation. You can be that support and comfort for a family in need. Just use the skills, talent, and passion that God gave you to create something more than just a blanket.
