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:
(Fleece Blanket or hand crocheted AfghanKnitted 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!

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
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
