Ronald McDonald House Chicago Donor Wall: Multi-Color Knit

“Grief and sadness knits two hearts in closer bonds than happiness ever can; and common sufferings are far stronger than common joys.” – Alphonse de Lamartine

The beautiful knitted piece I used as the backdrop for this door was gifted to me by my kind and giving mother, Carole Duh. After my mom saw the photo of this door, I received a beautiful note from her describing the significance of the piece. She wrote, “A friend of a friend of a friend knit the colorful artistic stole from which this door was created. Originally, it was lovingly lined with beautiful hot pink raw silk fabric. It graced the shoulders of four amazing and talented women in it’s life as a magic piece of clothing. Each woman who wore it would have strangers stop her to comment, admire or inquire about it’s beauty and creativity. When this Doors of Hope project came along, I heard a soft whisper from the other three women’s voices saying, “please share this wrap with others”. Let it bring joy and admiration to more than we four.” Enjoy”.

80 unique doors will be showcased on two gallery walls in the main public area of the Ronald McDonald House being built in the heart of downtown Chicago near Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. The doors are meant to symbolize the philosophy that ” The doors of Ronald McDonald House are always open for you.”  To learn more click on the following links:
