Cathy and Carol have felt the need to make blankets, scarves and hats for people that are in shelters and hospitals. We are going to be making these items and welcome volunteers who would like to help us. Right now we are purchasing fleece to make tied blankets and yarn to make scarfs, hats and afghans and quilts. We have assigned a budget for this project and are working on them at the present time. This is a long term, year round project for us and you can help by donating to this fund. Each bag, blanket and teddy bear can be provided for approximately $25.00

We hope that giving blankets to people in shelters will see them as hope for the future and especially if they left home with nothing but the clothes on their back, they will have a warm blanket to snuggle in and dream of a positive future, the blanket is theirs to keep as they move on. Scarfs and hats will also help to keep them warm this winter.

For years Carol has been making LUV Blankets for the kids at Seattle Children’s Hospital and will continue to do this under the Sun and Surf Charity “Comfort and Care Bags” project.

Comfort and Care Bags will contain:
Blanket (Fleece Blanket or hand crocheted Afghan
Knitted or crochet children’s and adult slippers- we are looking for volunteers
Small Teddy Bear
All these items are packed into a bag with handles for easy carrying!

More photos coming soon!

Paula’s Pillowcase Project – Paula Yost

Paula's Pillowcase Project

On each handmade pillowcase that is donated, a card is placed on top and a ribbon is tied around this precious gift for patients in the hospital.

The card reads:

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. Well, I decided to make pillowcases instead.

My name is Paula Yost and my son, Gary, was treated here at Seattle Children’s for Ewing’s Sarcoma. I am thankful to report that he is in remission and doing great.

However, when Gary was in treatment, he hated the rough pillowcases here at the hospital, so I made him a few special soft ones to bring from home. I enjoyed making them so much that I enlisted 60+ of my friends to help me make pillowcases for kids at the hospital. We hope you find your sleep more restful on your new, snuggly pillowcase.
