Giving Back….with a Lot of Help from My Friends

One of the stars of the “Stitchin’ for Kids” project

Last December I wrote about the Stitchin’ for Kids project, established by my friend Caroline Archer; it’s a program that provides dolls for girls who are hospitalized with serious illnesses. I’m delighted to report that the program is going strong, with now more than 200 dolls donated to three children’s hospitals here in the San Francisco Bay Area. You should see the number of outfits that are brought in to our monthly “Doll Days” at The Cotton Patch in Lafayette, CA! Caroline pins them to the wall so we can admire the creativity and love that goes into every piece. Here are two examples of the beautiful work done by Caroline and her group of volunteers:
