Needy Newborns

My church women's organization makes quilts for our local hospital's newborns. We were told that even with all we donate that they still have about 50 babies a month go home with nothing. They only present the blankets to those who do not bring items for their newborn to go home in. I ride our local commuter train every day to work, and while I can't quilt on the train, I can knit or crochet. So I take my yarn and needles, or hook, and make baby blankets while I commute. An avid crocheter overhead me telling about this project. Since then, she has donated 6 beautiful baby blankets to the hospital. While we can't cover the needs of all the babies, it feels to good to know that we've at least helped a little.
