January 2016 Opens our2nd annual Happy Birthday afghan crochet along!! .

Birthday Square Comfort-ghan/friendship ghan  Open to All! To run from January 2016, thru Dec as it stands now.(we'll see how it goes! ) If you haven't yet joined us, it's not too late, just so your birthday is not past when you join, i will get you on the list! .
 we are a group of granny-holics willing to make you some granny squares for your afghan, and maybe getting a few squares too, for ours, from others on the list!!
All you have to do, is pm me your pertinent info, such as full name,
Current address,  and size and color of the squares you desire, and your birth month,  to me, and on your Birthday Month, you should at least receive a square (s) to celebrate your birth month…from one, or more than one of us! it’s a win win situation! 
There are no strings attached, most of us, will chose to send out each month, as well as receive some on their specified month,  but as always, whom you mail to, and when, or even if, is your decision, this is just  a birthday list for those that want to participate in making someone’s birthday special! If you can’t send this month, make it up maybe another month. Nothing says you have to send, to receive here.FOr those of us not collecting on our birthdays, but still sending, a card would be very welcomed to make her day special!
In months where there are several birthday names, you may chose to send to all, or one, the choice is yours if you decide sending is really more fun, almost, than receiving, lol
Im hoping  that each month,  both single or multiple birthdays   that everyone on the list that month receives at least one puffy, Cards are a nice touch too, to tuck into the puffy, but not required.
you still must pm the chosen participant (s) yourself, for their current addy, and mail away your birthday wishes, to one, or more,  of your choice and for those members that send, but are not collecting, a pretty b day card, would be lovely.
To make it simpler for you to pm the birthday squares for their addy, you may click on their name listed below, and it will take you to their page, and then just click on pm.
I will post the monthly list by name,and you may then come to this page and check on their preferences.
No deadlines, no mailing dates, only mail within that month, and only one thing  is expected in return, and  of course, that is a  “thank you “ posted in the thread, and if possible, pics, we covet pictures here, so post away!
Any other questions, pm me, ill help where I can. I hope this goes really well, it’s so nice to be thought of special on your special day at least!! I can’t wait to get started! We have all 12 months posted below for those that may like to work ahead, enjoy, have fun!
It is generally known that all yarns used unless otherwise specified in their preferences, is 4 ply, med weight, acrylic yarns. Most used yarns are Red Heart Super  Saver, Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn, Vanna's, Impeccable Loops and threads, and store brands like Michaels Crafters Choice. All washable,and durable, no wool unless it is specified.
Please click on the name you chose, to visit her profile page, and to send pm.to get address or if you have questions..  thanks!

a note to all, first of all thanks go to Amy for her speedy replies, help guidance, and advice, it is much appreciated.....



Secondly, to answer a question that was asked, as most of us have some form of the list that Sue had sent out, and even if you work from that list of addresses, it would probably be best to email or pm to verify it anyways. Just a thought!


Also, I might reccomend that in cases where the member has not yet answered your email, or pm and before committing to making a square for her or him, in addition to pm'ng them, you can also check a person's status, as to when they last posted. That sometimes is helpful. I have run across a few myself, that haven't posted for a very long time..not particualry on this cal, but in other places...... ok Thanks! if you don't know how, which Im sure most of you do, lemme know, Ill explain it, it's easy......thanks again.:tup

Wow it is roomy in here! Love what you've done with the place & love that the CAL lives on!


I have severely slacked in my square sending, but I had a relatively recent copy of the list so that will be my starting point.


All of my info is correct and with any luck I can start churning out some new squares!

Katy is correct...if you have me on a list, the address will be wrong starting June 1!


So if I would be so lucky as to receive a square from you, please do contact me so you will have the correct address!
