Road Trip Journal:
19 June 2019: There were 9 members, plus one husband, who delivered 117 quilts, 82 knitted hats for babies, 17 pillowcases, 11 taggies, and 3 handbags. A couple of people had not been before and were given a tour of the house. They were very impressed.
Jaye and Kathy, staff members of David’s House, enjoyed the "mini" quilt show presented by the LLQG members. We always have lots of fun showing them what we brought.
I want to thank everyone who donated to David’s House. We are truly blessed to be able to do this for them. The kids feel so loved when they get a quilt and I’m sure the babies really like the hats to keep their little heads warm.
17 October 2018: Fourteen members of the LLQG delivered 70 quilts, 9 pillowcases, 34 baby hats, 6 isolet covers, a big bag of stuffed animals and 36 Halloween bags filled with goodies. Those members here for the first time toured the facilities and peeked into some of the rooms. I can’t thank our members enough for all the quilts, hats, pillowcases and isolet covers that you make for the children. They do really love them with all their hearts. ShelleyC
20 June 2018: One hundred sixty-six quilts were delivered to David's House. Thirty-one of those quilts were generously donated by Country Village Quilters of Moultonborough. One David's House patient received a special "Ice Cream" quilt, as his wish was known far enough in advance that members had time to make this quilt for him.
