The work of many hands!

On my recent trip to Layla House with a group of high school students from the Emma Willard School in Troy, NY we carried a number of donated supplies made by talented parents and supporters.   When it was reported that the kitchen workers really wanted aprons and the babies needed burp cloths, our sewers got to work and here are some photos of the results!  The kitchen workers in particular were so delighted with their beautiful, colorful new aprons that they literally started singing and dancing around together and insisted on posing for numerous photos.  It was such a pleasure for me to hand them out to such enthusiastic and grateful recipients.  Thanks so much to those of you who responded to the call for aprons and burp cloths. 

If you have a craft you enjoy doing and would like to make something for either the staff or children of Layla House, please let me know by writing to me at this link.

The AFTER Photos!  

And here are a few of the cute new bibs and burp clothes on the babies.....

A wonderful supporter and donor from Oregon has kept us well-supplied with diapers and diaper covers.  The ones I brought on this trip were particularly fashionable so I couldn't resist taking this photo.
