Project LInus

“Hugs should be available at the medical stores 24/7. 
Sometimes, they are the best healers for almost everything.” 
― Minhal Mehdi


Our We CAN ( Care And Nurture) met Monday, April 1st at Carolyn's home to make fleece blankets for Project Linus of Utah County.

  Barbara, Lynn, Megan, Vila, Ardis, Carolyn and Sandy all worked on the project. 


These blankets are given to children who are seriously ill or traumatized and distributed through hospitals, shelters or through social service agencies. This is a way of spreading "blanket hugs" to children in need and helping to provide security, warmth and comfort to children.    
Vila, Megan and baby Anders

The ladies worked for a couple of hours to make  nineteen blankets which were taken to the Project  Linus Center in Provo.  .  Everyone also enjoyed a  nice luncheon. 
 The blankets are not tied, but the fabric is pulled through a small hole made at the top center of each fringe, making it a no-sew blanket.  

They are quick and easy. Instructions for these quick no-sew blankets and many other types of blankets  are found on the Project Linus website.
