2011 - 5th Annual Afghans for NICU Babies for Christmas

Recommended Posts

Before I show off Penny's lovely ghans, let me first say how much I appreciate her patience. Penny's box arrived right around the time my mother-in-law died... which happened to also be the same week my brother-in-law ended his marriage. Needless to say, I haven't had much time here on Crochetville since. She's waited very patiently for me to post pictures. Thank you Penny.

 

I love RR's.. that's no secret.. Penny's large one has the most lovely boarder on it. It just adds an extra special, delicate touch to it and the baby who gets it will be so blessed!

 

 

Sorry Kathryn I forgot about this post, I thought I only remembered you saying the computer was having a hard time uploading them. That is how I missed them because when I saw the post the photos did not show up, so I was looking for a different post but the photo is actually there now. Thanks a bunch. I appreciate your hard work.

Penny

Mary is the church friend of a co-worker of mine. She contributed last year as well. These are 4 knit blankets and the block colored one is crochet. Three of the knit blankets are corner to corner. They are all so nice.

Here is what Sandy sent for the babies! Look at all these! There are pinwheel designs, RR's - the two up front have preemie hats with them... such bounty!

I have a question for all of you. I like taking photos of the packages you all send me by taking one picture of the whole donation. I think the impact of seeing all the afghans is impressive. However, when there are so many - I know it makes it difficult for you all to see the detail in the ghans.

 

Would you prefer that I break the pictures down into smaller groupings, or do you like seeing it as one big haul?

I don't care how you post them. I just like seeing the different blankets!

 

I sent my box out today to you Kathryn!

Does not matter to me how they are posted, I just enjoy seeing them all. What ever is easier I would say.

I like seeing them all together in one picture. :) It really impresses me how much people have made!

Last weekend, my kids and I got in a car accident (nothing serious) and then I got Pam's box. Pam has waited patiently, while I went to chiropractor appointments and generally just rested, before I got this picture up.

 

Pam always sends, what I call a "clown car box." - meaning - just when you think you've pulled out the last ghan, another 10 come out of the box.. just like clowns coming out of a volkswagon!

 

These 24 beauties from Pam come in a variety of sizes and pattern and yarns and will bless the preemies who receive them!

Love seeing the blankets roll in, however you see fit to photograph them works for me.

 

Here's hoping we'll see more "clown car boxes" soon. That really is a fitting description! :lol The blankets are really adding up. :hook

 

Looking through the thread is super encouraging. Makes me want to start another blanket right now.

Thanks Amanda! I"ll let you know when it gets here. We are going camping today, so I'll be off the Ville until Sunday night or Monday.

 

Everyone have a good weekend!

I have to use my small camera to take pictures to put up here - as our higher resolution camera takes pictures of a size that is too large for the board.... I wish that wasn't so, because my camera distorted the coloring of the afghan that is in the upper left of the picture.

 

That afghan has the most stunning purple color in it. I made me gasp! Absolutely lovely - as are all these ghans. Just look!

Hi Everyone - I'm going to be on vacation for about 10 days starting this Thursday. So, please don't send any packages. Everything is being held at the post office but just to be on the safe side - if you have anything to send, please wait to send it so that it arrives after October 10th.

 

Thanks!

Hello, I see that you live locally. It's exciting to find a local charity! I will love to join in.

 

I have some questions. However, I have to share personal information.

 

Please PM me when you come back from the trip.

 

Enjoy the vacation!

This package arrived before our vacation. I got back this week and am finally able to post pictures.

 

Jeanne sent 5 beautiful afghans and 20 adorable hats. 3 of them have flowers on them - they are so very sweet!

My co-worker's church has been donating for two years now to this cause. One of the members of her church has a friend at another church who is involved in knitting and crochet for charity. So, these 11 ghans come from the 1st Presb. Church (I didn't spell it out, because I'm a lousy speller).

I didn't see any response to my old PM three weeks ago. Did you ever get it ? :)
