    Still making comfortghans for the elderly

    The ladies and I that make everything for these sweet people have made our cause known to every church and the few family members that do visit. Sometimes we get lucky. We have learned that most of the nurses aren't honest. I had a shipment of 8 blankets to come directly to a nursing home and the nurses took them home instead of letting me know they came in so I could give them to someone, they must have been really nice. Good thing the lady told me she was shipping them so I knew to look for them. It created a big problem. The comfortghans are usually made 3'x5' to ensure max potential of donations, any design and color combo or single color, male and female. Any help is welcomed and very very appreciated.
  8. I made short socks with a popcorn or a berry topper, they were very cute and I get compliments all the time.

    Round Jacob's Ladder

    Thank you, this is what I was exactly looking for and more.
  10. It has been more than 10 years since I started visiting nursing homes and retirement homes. I quickly noticed that most people had no family coming to see them so I was broken hearted. I started making comfortghans for those in wheel chairs first but I couldn't neglect the other friends I had made. I have had help from time to time but most of the supplies have come out of pocket, it has gotten harder and harder to do with all the changes to the government going on now. So now I'm asking for any help to help me keep going on to make more comfortghans as the request keeps growing. Please help and it will be appreciated so much, not only by myself but the by the people receiving the blankets. It really makes them smile and feel important.Thanks everyone.

    Do u have scrap yarn laying around?

    I learned that some elder people like the different colored hats with the knots on the outside, their trend I guess. It doesn't matter what colors, how much, what kind of yarn u would like to share. I appreciate all help so I can continue to help others. Im glad u thought of me although I haven't been online much due to a health a health issue. If u can still help in any way; My Address: Gail Woodruff 3190 Sussex Drive Apt 118 Emporia, VA 23847 Phone (434)-594-2584 Thank you again!!
  14. My name is Gail. Usually I ask for help with afghan squares, scarfs, and anything else to make for elder people. This time I am asking if those people that discard scrap yarn would consider sending it to me so that I can make quilt type crocheted afghans. All of the help goes to nursing homes and retirement homes, no bs here. All help is appreciated by more than myself. Thank you for your considerations.
