HI,

As some of you know I have a young son with down synrdome and my husband has brain cancer. Our funds are extreamly limited. A week ago my friend Kristi and her family(3 boys--ages 8,10,14, husband and kristi) were evicted from their home because they can't pay the rent. They all moved in with us(makes 9 total in our home now). They have very little to give the boys so I thought if some of you have crocheted squares you could donate to me I could sew them together and make blankets for each child. My family has no way of buying them anything but maybe I can get them a blanket each made by christmas. color not important, kind of stitch used not important,would appreciate any. PM me if you can help me with this.

 

thanks in advance.

sorry, forgot that. Thanks to a suggestion that i had not thought of, maybe 12' quares would be a great size.

 

Thanks to all

I would be happy to send you some squares.

Just a little suggestion... you might consider 12" squares.

12 ~ 12" squares make a nice size blanket.

if you're looking at 5" squares... that will be alot of squares and alot of sewing. Unless you dont mind that! But getting enough squares sent to you and put together for 3 blankets might be better to be bigger squares.

Just a thought.

Hey Dimples, I can help out too :D

 

Does yarn type matter? Any color preferences? Pattern type?

 

OR....Anything goes?

 

Let me know, and PM me your info. I'm hoping to get 2 done for you by the end of the week :xfin

Hi Dimples, this weekend I made two squares and I plan to make a third. If you send me your address I will put them in the mail asap! Do you have a drop dead date in order to give you enough time to assemble? I have some more stash to bust also!!!

I just got mine to the post office yesterday...sorry I was running a bit behind, it was a busy week. I tried Monday, but with the holidy it was super crowded and I didn't have the time to wait. But, at least now it's on it's way. Please let me know when you receive it since I didn't get the delivery confirmation. :hug

I have finally finished the squares for the blankets you'd like to make. I hope it's not too late to send them. They'll be in tomorrow's mail so maybe you'll have them by Wed. or Thur of this week. SC to FL shouldn't take too terribly long.

Just wanted to say a great big thank you to all who sent squares. I did get 2 blankets finished. I would still love to make another for the older boy if anyone would like to send squares that were not able to during the holiday stuff. I am sure the 2 smaller boys will love them. Sorry I can't post a pic,I have no camera(it took a swim LOL!). MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL.
