  1. That's wonderful news! I was worried about her and am so glad that she's doing well! Thanks for finding out for us.
  2. Ok, I finally got a chance to scan the note that John Travolta sent me. For those of you who would like to see it, click on the link below: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=3242412&l=fdf4d584ee&id=613403083
  3. You guys are not going to believe this!!!!! I got a HANDWRITTEN thank you card from Mr. John Travolta himself in the mail yesterday!!!!! My friend Natalie told me that he asked her hubby for my addy the other day and sure enough I got this thank you card in the mail! I will scan it and post it on here when I get the chance. How thoughtful! Just thought you all would like to know how touched he and his family were!
  4. Hello again! I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone! I just delivered another big bag full of ghans to CMS (Children's Medical Services) last week!!! Everyone has been so generous!!! I actually rcv'd several boxes full of small squares which I have been joining into baby blankets (I usually work on these while I'm at Dr's appts with my little one!) so I will have several more once these are finished but between everyone here on the 'Ville, the generosity of some other on-line friends and believe it or not, the kindness of strangers I have met at garage sales, we have really been
  5. Oh, I'm so glad they got them!!! I haven't had a chance to talk to my friend Natalie so I hadn't heard they had been delivered yet. My little one got out of the hospital mid-last week and I've been very busy taking her to her numerous Dr's appts so I haven't really talked to any of my friends. The only reason I read this now is because I've been up all night with her as she still isn't sleeping well. However, I wouldn't trade one second of this for the world! Being a mommy is the best thing in the world and I am so blessed to have this little one in my life! Thanks again to everyon
  6. I just wanted to give an "update" although I think most of you know that we got our first child a little over a month ago! So things have been very crazy as you can imagine! We are thrilled and so blessed to be able to do this! To say I'm busy is putting it mildly but I love my new life and to be able to help take care of a sick child has really been such a blessing not only for me but my hubby. It makes this long road all worth it! The baby we have right now is very sick and is in the hospital again so I've been back and forth to Orlando every other day until she gets to come home aga
  7. I just had a minute and wanted to let you know that I got a hold of my friend Natalie and she said that her husband has not yet delivered the ghans at this time. I guess the Travolta's have not been home when he's been there to do the landscaping and he wants to make sure he hand delivers it so he's waiting until he can give it to them personally. Also, someone had previously mentioned they heard John is not promoting his new movie. Yes, this is also true. From what she said, he is still in mourning and is not making personal appearances and such, really keeping low key. On a si
  8. I apologize for not replying to this thread. Having my first medical foster child has left little time for anything else. As we speak I am at the Children's hospital in Orlando with a very sick baby. I wouldn't even take the time to reply to this but after seing an e-mail from sore who is upset I wanted to take a second once I got the baby asleep to respond. Yes, I was supposed to meet my friend 2 weeks ago for a haircut. She got a cold and since I had a child who is immune deficinit we had to reschedule. The next week the baby got sick. Since then we have been back and forth to Orla
  9. Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you know that I have been playing phone tag with my friend Natalie. I am supposed to see her this Friday (but my plans sometimes change with the baby and all) so I should have an update then.) You would not believe how many appts and such I have to go to and have at the house having a medical foster child! Not only is my phone constantly ringing but there are so many different agencies at work that all have to be a part of the process that I can barely get her on a somewhat schedule! It took Natalie and I over a week just to touch base so hang in there guys
  10. Hi all. Forgive me for not posting sooner but we finally got a baby and things have been crazy! I was at the hospital in Orlando with her almost all week and just got home last night. I have not had a chance to talk to my friend Natalie but I will give her a call today and see if it has been delivered yet. Thanks for your patience!!! And again, thanks to all who contributed! :~)
  11. I actually started mine a couple of weeks ago and I just now found this CAL for it! I just finished stitching it together and am starting on the edging. I must say that this pattern was written just HORRIBLY! I mean, it could have been made one piece so easy without all this piece-work. And what's with attaching the edging afterwards? I've never heard of such a thing! I think the creator of this pattern much be a seamstress or love to sew because I think most of us HATE sewing our pieces together, right? Anyway, I will be happy when this thing is done! It's turning out lovely but what
  12. am i the only person who likes these slippers? i actually plan on making these! i really like them!!! :~)
  13. Like I stated in my earlier post, I saw my friend today and gave them to her. Her husband will be delivering them to the Travolta's on his next scheduled time to do their landscaping. She didn't know when that was and he wasn't home when I was over there today. She will let me know when they have been delivered. I will post again once they have been delivered.
  14. I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be giving these to my friend this coming Friday afternoon and so sometime after that it will be delivered to the Travolta's. Once I give it to my friend I'll be able to find out a better time table as to when it will be delivered. THANKS everyone! :~)
  15. I have finally finished!!!! :cheer:clap Thank you again to everyone for your help! For pics I have links below: This is the pillow that I made using a lovely square that was stitched by a wonderful Crochetviller from Canada! She sent in a larger square that couldn't be used in the ghan so I used it in pillow form instead. I think it turned out very nice! http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=2249151&l=113e742fbd&id=613403083 This is the first ghan: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=2249190&l=41fd619edb&id=613403083 And this is the 2nd ghan: h
  16. Thanks everyone! I was able to get to Jo-Anns yesterday to get a pillow form so I finally was able to get started on the pillow! I am hoping it'll be done by next weekend (fingers crossed!) I saved the square that was sent in which was made out of a graph of Jett's face for the pillow since the square was much larger than 8 inches and wouldn't fit the blanket right. It's taking a little bit of "finagaling" (sp) to get the rest of it to fit the pillow form but I'm making it work... Other than that I was able to get everyone else's squares in the blankets with the exception of 1 square
  17. Just an update that I finished the 2nd ghan this evening and will be getting started on the pillow this weekend (I have to run out and get a pillow form.) So I should be all finished very shortly! Will have pics soon! (As soon as the pillow is finished and that shouldn't take very long at all!)
  18. So sorry I haven't updated the thread... As of right now we are in a "holding pattern." On Feb 21st, Medicaid accepted our application and we are waiting for them to issue a billing number for us. As soon as they do we will have a baby! The paperwork was actually sent in on Jan 21st and it took them a month to accept it so now we're just waiting for the billing to happen. We couldn't send this in until we had everything else done and that took forever! This is the very last step (so we're told) so this is just incredibly hard all the waiting! So right now we're just trying to get the h
  19. I just finished the 1st ghan this weekend and have started on the 2nd one. It looks like I'll have enough squares for 2 ghans and a pillow!
  20. Hi everyone! Just an update that I'm about 1/2 way done putting the squares together! I'll post a pic just as soon as I'm done! Thanks again for all your help!
  21. Ok as of 6pm eastern time today I have PMed everyone whose squares I have rcv'd so please contact me if for some reason I should have rcv'd yours and didn't contact you. If you have my address, are sending me a square and have not done so yet, please send it ASAP! I need to get going on this but I really like to have all the squares before I start so that I can get them all laid out first. I am making the cut-off date effective this Friday, February 13th. If it's not in my mailbox by then it may not be put in the comfortghan. Please send those squares today!!! Thanks again everyone fo
  22. Thanks everyone for your generosity! I have given everyone who's going to get it my address. I am no longer giving out my addy so if you have squares please send them ASAP so I can get started on putting this together! I will post pics once I have the ghans completed! Thanks again to everyone for helping to make this happen!!!!!!!
  23. I have PMed everyone that has sent me squares as of 5:52 tonite! (My poor mailman must hate me! LOL) I do have 3 envelopes with squares that I am unable to figure out who they are so here goes: Cheryl in Ohio Eneida in Texas and this last one had no return address, just a little note inside simply signed: Damara... Thank you to everyone! I am completely overwhelmed at the response for the ghan and I am quite sure that there are still more enroute! I will take a pic of all the squares before I start joining them and then once I'm all finished! Thanks again for your generosity!
  24. Hi everyone. Ok, I just finished PMing everyone that I rcv'd a square from. I think maybe due to the storms in the midwest that the mail is slower than normal so if I haven't contacted you yet this may be the reason. If I haven't contacted you and you are wondering if I got it or not, privately e-mail or PM me and that way I won't miss your message on this long thread. Thanks so much everyone!!!
  25. Hi everyone! Just wanted to send a quick note... I have a bunch of squares that were literally stuffed into my mailbox yesterday and today. I have not had any time to open them or look through them yet but hang tight and I will contact everyone by Friday evening at the latest and let you all know who's squares I have rcv'd. If you have sent me a PM I will reply by Fri as well. I apologize but I'm working a ton of overtime this week and just haven't had much extra time to get on line once I get home (and am unable to get on line at work). Thanks again everyone and if you still need my
