Wisconsin NICU

The latest donation box is going to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin NICU.  There is a family there with twins I have been in contact with.  So they are the next recipients of Grandma Nancy's Preemie items.  I must add up my totals.  I know I must be close to 500 hats.  Oh how nice to know how many little ones are warmer because of the items I created.

Have a good one.....Nan..

I have a small box ready to go to Georgia.  A lady is collecting blankets for the kids in Appalachia that will be given to them at Christmas.  Some children get nothing for Christmas because their parents must decide if they want food or presents.  I do remember those days when I was a child, but of course I didn't realize it at ate time.  It's tough to want things for Christmas and not be able to have anything.  It is just another day for some people.

Then I found another place that needs onesies for thrown away teens who are having babies.  Their parents have thrown them out because they got pregnant and they have nothing for their babies or themselves. 

So, I have one box ready, guess I need to go and start the second box.  If anyone would like to help with postage, either hit donation or you can mail a donation in for the babies to:  Preemies 722 Farnham Road  Nicholson Pa 18446.  Thank you all.

Another Delivery

I filled the box very carefully, handling each item like they would brake.  I know they aren't fragile but they need care.  The touch of love is on each item in the box.  It's destination, once again CHOPS.  They sent me a request for blankets for the warmers.  There are 11 of those in this box for the babies.  There are blankets of all sizes, hats of all designs, Gowns, cuddle sacs, lots of things for the babies to keep them warm and comfy.  

The box will be delivered tomorrow and will bathe each baby in love. 

Have a good one.....Nan

A friend found an ad for free fleece.  I have called the Company and spoke with someone in another state.  She has called the local Company to tell them I am interested.  I can even pick it up myself.  I will load my car to the hilt to get as much as I can for the babies.  I told her I will let everyone know where the fleece came from.  She liked that idea.  Then I can send the blankets to more NICU's.  I have an expanded list of places that need blankets and hats and onsies for the preemies and babies.  Some people just can't afford them. I have been buying boxes to ship it in.  Anyone interested in helping with postage?  You don't need a paypal account to donate.  Just hit donate.  Every dollar helps.  Please give if you can.  The babies will love you for it!

Have a good one.....Nan..

Preemie Project

Starting today I have offered people who make a $10.00 donation to the Preemies, a choice of things they can donate to the Preemies.  Hat and blanket, gown and hat, dress, cuddle sac and hat or a few hats.  I will put your name on a card that the item has been donated by you.  All money goes to the Preemies for supplies. 

Have a good one.....Nan..

A very lovely lady contacted me yesterday about a fleece donation.  Yes, I would love a donation.  We met up today and the fleece was in a black garbage bag.  Darn, I couldn't see in it.  Upon arriving at home we opened the bag and started to sort through the fleece.  Two prints and the rest were pastel colors.  How nice!  They are now on the processing table (dining room table, just sounds better)  Cutting will be tomorrow and then the serger gets set up. 

A big thank you goes to Jane.  Any and all donations are appreciated.  Show me you like my patterns.  Every dollar counts.

Have a good one.....Nan..

The latest hats!

I have been working on a few larger hats for the Pediatric Patients.  Mckee decided she would help design them.  She suggested the eyes and noses and the buttons for embellishments.  She did a good job so I had to post them to show them off.  If you are interested in patterns for these let me know and I can post them.

Have a good one.....Nan..

We are having quite the time with storms.  I have two dogs that hate thunder.  We laugh because they shake so bad.  Last night at about 1:30 AM, yes AM, the lab knocked down her gate and ran into the other room.  After checking that all was well, I returned her to her room.  Ten minutes later she did it again.  This time I knew why - Thunder.  Oh well, I won't sleep till it is over so I came out and sat on the couch with the dog shivering at my feet.  I was getting a foot massage!  There was no TV so I picked up my hook and made another Preemie hat while I waited for the storm to pass.  Two hours later I added two more hats to my bounty for the preemies.  Please no rain tonight.  I do need some sleep.......

Thank you to all my readers.  If you would like to make a donation for the Preemies just hit The donation button.  Every little bit helps. 

Have a good one.....Nan.....
