Project Linus Omaha - Make-A-Blanket Day

Four of us spent the morning with Project Linus at their annual Make-A-Blanket Day.  We worked on quilt tops, sewed on labels and "shopped" for fabric at the donation table.  We were surrounded with a crowd of excited children, teenagers, families, individuals that just wanted to give a little back to someone else.  We also met several people that came just to thank us for what we do because they had been given a quilt/blanket by Project Linus.  It was a fun morning...(even though I didn't win the sewing machine!)

Here are some pictures from the day.
