  5. Now this is one I'm gonna have to make for my 2 new grandbabies:)) Thanks so much for sharing your pattern:))) It's adorable!!!
  6. Hello everyone, I am currently collecting squares for two ghans, one for a very ill lady and the other for a dear lady who recently lost her husband. Please see below for the details for each ghan:) LOVEGHAN: A dear friend has asked for us to make a comfortghan for her mother who is suffering from terminal lung cancer. Here's what she says about her mother: She stays freezing cold all the time. It would make her feel really special if she could receive a loveghan from our group:)) she's suffered two strokes/triple by pass..on bld thinner...lost so much weight, no meat on her bones any more...mama is 86 yrs old.. both lungs consummed wt. the cancer...pray for mama, please! Thankyou:)) I am needing 8" squares in purple (any shades) w/white border. All squares need to be 8" including the border please:)) COMFORTGHAN: A very dear friend of mine has requested squares to make a comfortghan for her great-grandmother who lost her husband recently. This dear lady is totally lost without her husband and a comfortghan will mean SOOOO much to her. This lady's deceased husband's favorite color was pink.....so she is asking for 6" & 12" squares be made in any shade of pink, but only pink with no other color please. No border is needed for these squares, but please have them measure either 6" or 12". If you can help with any of these squares, please PM me for the address to send to. Any help will be greatly appreciated:)) I am the owner of Swappin_Squares (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Swappin_Squares/) and we have recently started an ongoing charity challenge. We donate these ghans to our members family & friends who are terminally ill, have debilitating diseases or have lost a loved one. These two ghans mentioned above are our current charity project. We hope to have enough squares to complete these ghans by the end of March or shortly thereafter. I also collect 6", 8" and 12" scrapghan squares (with white or black border) on a continuous basis. These squares will be pieced to make comfortghans/loveghans to be sent to someone who is terminally ill and needs to receive his/her ghan ASAP. If you would like to donate this type of squares, please make sure they measure 6", 8" or 12" total including the border. White or black border (either one) is fine for these squares. Hugs, Betty
  7. Sorry ya'll.......I don't know what the problem is, but I'm not having any luck getting the pic to post directly here. So, if you click on the link below you should be able to see it, HOPEFULLY, lol. Please let me know if you have a problem with the link and I'll try something else, lol. Hugs, Betty http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj310/bettflow/CHARITY%20PICS/000_0484.jpg
  8. Hello again, Here is a pic I took of the loveghan squares that I took when I layed them all out in the order that I am piecing them together. AREN'T THEY BEAUTIFUL!!! I'm getting close to being finished with it, but wanted to go ahead and share this pic with ya:)) I'll post the pic of it as soon as it's complete, should be within the next few days. Only 10 more to join and then will be ready for the border:)) Hugs, Betty <a href="http://s275.photobucket.com/albums/jj310/bettflow/CHARITY%20PICS/?action=view&current=000_0484.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj310/bettflow/CHARITY%20PICS/000_0484.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
  9. I had to google to see what this is to, lol. I had never heard of it before. Looks like something I would LOVE to have to edge charity babyghans:)) I make alot of ghans for charity and would love to have this to make fleece blankets too. Looks like it would make putting a crocheted edge on the blankies so easy:)) Um......I do have a question though. I looked at the website where these can be ordered. I'm a little confused about the sizes though. What size is the one you have? I'm trying to decide exactly what I would need to edge blankets that are 18" x 18" on up to 36" x 36". Can you kind of fill me in on how these things work??? Betty
  10. Hi everyone, I'm sorry I haven't been in here for awhile. My fibro has been SOOOO BAD and because of this has made me run later than expected getting the loveghan finished up. I worked on it for about 2-3 hours last night and got SOOOOO much accomplished. Only have 10 more squares to get pieced and then will be ready to add the border. I'll be working really hard on it this week and plan to have it in the mail to April by Friday at the latest. I want to say a big THANKYOU to each and every one of you who send squares for this loveghan. I ended up with 12 more squares than needed, so have decided to use the extra squares to start another loveghan that's in the works, so believe me.....they won't go to waste:))) I was going to use all the squares sent for this loveghan until I realized how huge it was going to be and the number wasn't coming out right, lol. So, decided this would be the best thing to do:)) I'll be posting a picture within the next few days of the finished ghan. It's turning out SOOOO PRETTY!!! Hugs, Betty
  11. Hello everyone, I thought that I would let ya'll know how the loveghan is coming along. First of all, I ended up receiving 45 squares total, so had little bit more edging than anticipated, lol. THIS IS WONDERFUL THOUGH!!! The loveghan is going to be SOOOO PRETTY when I get through with it. I have all but 2 squares edged and will begin piecing it together tomorrow. I'm still shooting for the 8th to get it mailed in hopes that April will receive it by Valentines:)) Will be sure and post pic as soon as it's complete:)) Hugs, Betty
  12. Okey dokey everyone.......here's pics of all the beautiful squares received for the loveghan. Thankyou to everyone who has sent squares and helped make this loveghan a reality:)) Counldn't get 'em' all in one pic, so had to take 5 pics to get pics of all of 'em') I was in the process of putting the border on this square at the time all of these pics were taken.))
  13. Oh, sweetie, I really appreciate the offer to help. I have received 42 squares, only needed 39. The loveghan will just have to be a little bit bigger:)) Sure don't want any square to be without a home:)) Hugs, Betty
  14. I'm looking forward to this swap. Only wish we had a separate thread so the messaes wouldn't be all mixed up with all the other things going on here:) Hugs, Betty
  15. I received so many BEAUTIFUL squares the past two days!!! More squares arrived from Clare, Suzy, Sherri, Karen, Jean L, C. Short and Tiffany. THANKYOU SOOO MUCH FOR HELPING MAKE THIS LOVEGHAN REALITY!!! GRAND TOTAL AS OF RIGHT NOW IS 39 SQUARES RECEIVED!!! WOW!!! YA'LL ARE SOOOO WONDERFUL!!! Don't worry, I had only planned on using 35 squares to complete the loveghan, but there's still room to work more squares in, so NO FEAR!!! I plan on enlarging the loveghan to include all of the BEAUTIFUL squares that I receive. Big Hugs, Betty
