Head Start Update

A few weeks ago, I told you about Cherri House and the quilt drive for South East Early Head Start (SEEHS) here in Baltimore. You can read about it here. Well, last week was giveaway week! All the sweet children received their quilts! Here are a few pictures:

 All the moms and babies waiting patiently.

 Our first recipient!

 Melissa making the children into super heroes!

 How precious is this little guy?

 After the kids received their quilts, their moms were encouraged to choose a book and read it to their child.

The whole point of this - a cozy place to cuddle up and read a favorite book.

 The director of SEEHS, Gayne, and I were chatting about what else the center might need. She said "more books!" My mind went immediately to cloth books (we quilters always think in fabric, don't we?!) She said "Yes, Yes!!" If you're sew inclined and would like to make a cloth book for a very deserving child, please let me know! It will be well used and well loved!

I'm so honored to have played a small role in this. Thanks so much to Cherri's blog readers, to the Faithful Circle Quilt Guild, to the Baltimore Quilt Guild and especially to Melissa House, who put this all together!
