Deena's fleece blankets

My sister Deena is well known for her FLEECE blankets. She recently made several JUNGLE PRINT blankets for her new grandson Mason....

And, for the other Thanksgiving baby, Clayton -- a BANDANA fleece blanket for his farm-themed nursery.

Here's a picture of her granddaughter, Maddie Grace, sitting amongst a bundle of blankets Deena and her friends made to send to soldiers serving overseas...

Deena adopts a soldier every year. She's been doing this for at least the last ten years. She and the people she works with send a box every month. Sometimes packed with toiletries, or maybe homemade cookies. Brownies are always a favorite...

One of the things they really appreciate getting are lightweight blankets they can carry with them. If you don't know a soldier -- there is a website where you can go to find out you can use some of your FLEECE STASH and turn it into a blanket for somebody who will really appreciate it. The website is: Soldiers' Angels.

I'm taking pictures of Deena's process,'ll be in tomorrow's post!!
