Ok...I started a new thread for our afghan.

Here is the link for the squares
http://www.warmupamerica.com/join.html

I will collect and sew them together and add a border and send them on.
Shall we do various colors...one color theme...two or three colors???
Let's make sure we all are using the same type and weight of yarn so our squares are equal when washed.
I AM SOOO EXCITED! Log in to post a reply

liz and Madison ~ I sent a small box to each of you today.

Joanne58 ~ Welcome!  Hopefully, liz or Madison will contact you either by pm or here on the board.  Smile

And with that, I'm out of here.

Take care, everyone!

Thought I would post this for any new girls. The squares should be 7"x9". Crotched or knitted, multi-colored or solid color yarn (medium weight, acrylic). Be creative! If you are able to add the solid black black border, it should be a double-row. Have fun!

Hi Girls! I'm posting this for Liz.

She just finished this MASTERPIECE for a dear sister in Illinois who has been courageously struggling with the bc beast. I'm sure some of you will recognize your squares. Isn't it a beauty!

Thanks Liz for coordinating, stitching and shipping. I really appreciate your dedication!

Hi, all,

Just wondering if this project continues? Are blocks still needed? If so, could someone PM me with an address to send finished blocks--thanks!

Hugs all around,

Hi, Binney4 ~ I see that there's been no response here, so hopefully you got a PM, maybe?

I, too, am wondering if this project is still going on.  Liz hasn't posted since November, and Madison hasn't posted in over a year.  I loved being part of this, but I haven't been making/sending blocks because I just don't know what's happening anymore.  

Not that I need to know every little detail, but it would be nice to know a little something. 

I hope this post doesn't sound angry or snappish or accusatory because that's not how it's meant at all.  I'm just curious.

I hope everyone's well!

Love, Artemis

Hmm.  "My Favorite Topics" told there were new posts here, but now I see there aren't.  Wonder what that was all about?

Anyway, does anyone know anything at all about this project?  Has anyone heard from Madison or Liz?

I hope you're all well! Smile

Hi Lynne, our "squares" are 7x9. Any pattern with a double crochet black border.

Sorry we've been Mia - Madison and I have been caring for our aging mothers as well as working. With the cooler weather coming in, I'm ready to start getting more boxes of hugs in the mail.

hi kids, I've had network issues. Sorry I haven't been by. Hugs to everyone. I did mail a box of hugs ( most squares made by myself) to a precious 2 1/2 year old going through chemo. I work with her grandmother.

These boxes arrive at just the right times.

Hugs to you all.
