Our Charity Baby Afghan Project

Last night’s final collection of baby afghans for the Detroit Veterans Hospital Baby Shower was amazing. Total count: 39 afghans – knitted/crocheted/quilted/fleeced – you name it, we had it! (along with some baby hats, stuffed animals and several other baby items.) Each time I ask our group to do a charity project they totally amaze me – they are ALWAYS over and above what I could ask for and I’m very proud of them. Here are two photos of the collection:

Michelle, a member of our group, who was the ‘go-between’ for us with the hospital (and the project was her idea)

Pam – (that’s me) – Coordinator, Waterford-Area Knitters & Crocheters group

Here is the final ‘pile’ of gifts

I felt sad that I couldn’t photograph the last afghans which were brought in last night, but there was a time constraint. I brought in 22 at the beginning of the evening and then ladies began bringing in more – 17 more! It was a GREAT night of charity giving.
