That's awesome. This would be the third time today God has sent to me about helping others, so I guess I better figure out what it is he wants me to do before he hits me over the head with it. I'm pretty hard headed, so that's what it takes sometimes, lol. I think it' terrific that you have a giving spirit.

from www.projectlinus.org:

As Charles Schulz's Linus character from the PEANUTS® comic strip was comforted by his blanket, Project Linus strives to do the same and more for children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. The blankets our nearly 400 chapter coordinators collect from thousands of “blanketeers” (volunteers) across the United States and then distributed to these children provide love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort.

The blankets are made by volunteers and can be one of three sizes, newborn, crib, twin, and made of crochet, knit, fleece, or quilt. You should take a look at the website, there's a lot of very touching stories there.

As to my own project... the dog fur has arrived! The downside is that the staple (the length of each fiber) is very short, about an inch, and I'm not 100% sure how to spin it. Never worked with anything this short before. I may mix in just a tiny bit of regular wool (which is 3-5 inches) to make it easier to handle.
