A Thank You Note...

We received this thank you note from our local hospital. It really warms our hearts when we receive thoughtful feedback like this.

I am a nurse from the Family Birthing Unit at Chambersburg Hospital. I would like to thank you for the generous amount of hand crafted items you bring us for our newborns. Our families do appreciate these treasures which they know are made from love for each of them. It is very helpful for us to have these warm hats for the babies. The mothers love having them as a keepsake.


I just wanted to say thank you and let you know how much we appreciate them.
Sincerely,
Donna H, RN
Family Birthing Unit

I finished up these two baby blankets this week. I used Pound of Love yarn for both with a H hook. The pink one is called Pink Moscato double Shell and The turquoise one had no name and I don't know where I found the pattern, but it was written with two mistakes and I had to figure out how to make a couple changes in it. It turned out ok, but if I make it again I will have to make another change to the pattern.
