Crocheted Lapgans

I have been crocheting since I was eight years old when my mother taught me. I have crocheted baby sweater sets, afghans and lapgans. My closet is now full of lapghans that I have made since last spring. I really don't want to sell any so I decided to give them to a charity that would appreciated them. So I called the Holy Family Hospice and the willingly accepted the lapgans. My husband and I took them to the home; this was Easter week. They were so happy to received the lapgans excited that this was a wonderful time to bring them in right before Easter. This year I will do the same and take them into the home. I'm hoping these lapghans will bring some smile to the patients there.
