I did not receive yours yesterday. I bet the mailman just couldn't carry all the packages. They will probably arrive tomorrow.

I just figured out how to upload pictures direct from my phone to the blog. Be sure to check it out - knits4charity.blogspot.com (I don't know why I called it "knits" for charity- I might eventually change it since I am clearly a "hooker!" lol!)

 

I uploaded a bunch of pictures of finished blankets today and plan to upload pictures of squares as they come in and blankets as I finish them from now on. ENJOY!

Hello again. I wanted to let you know I sent some squares today. Just a little post when you get them works great for me. Save that postage for........YARN! I had missed your latest posts on fb as I dont spend much time on fb.....saw it today and wish I would have tucked a couple bucks in package. I will next time. Good luck and it is fun to see the ghans put together. They are definately a labor of love.

I just sent off another 14 squares to you. The post office said you should receive them Monday. There is no need to send me a personal thank you. Just post and let me know that you got them.:D

Thank you, CynCyn. I will let you know when I receive them. I have stopped mailing the personal thank-you's because I got many people saying "I don't need that!". I thought it was a nice touch but I guess it wasn't necessary. Oh well... more time for hookin' right?

 

Have a great day - and thanks again!

The personal thank you's were wonderful. A very nice touch! However, use your time and postage for the vets and know that we appreciate all you do!!!

I agree. I really couldn't have stated it better. Your acknowledgement of receipt and thanks posted on here is very adequate.

I am officially looking for people to help me join afghans. I haven't quite figured out how it will work (financially) but I can't do this alone. If you are willing to help, please let me know. I prefer blankets to be joined with the flat braid join but I am willing to entertain other ideas. I will be asking you to send me a sample of your handiwork so I can insure our Veterans get the best of the best and all finished blankets will be sent to me. Thats all I have for details so far.
