Granny Squares Friendship/Comfort Afghan CAL 2016

4,853 posts in this topic

hello and welcome to you all.

 

 

welcome to our members and any new members or want to be members you have come to the right place.

 

It is pretty simple really, we like to make granny squares. We found the best way to do it was to open up a thread on whom might want or need granny squares to maybe help complete an afghan for themselves or charity or anyone they chose. Every one could use some help as sometimes collecting enough squares seems daunting for any one single person.

If you would like to join us and make or receive some squares here is the info I will need from you to get you on our list.

We have some :yesangel:c9 members that only send out squares at this time ANd a lot of us do both send out and receive some that is up to you Again you do not have to send out to receive squares.

Here is an example of the info you will need to send to me through a pm please do not  do not post your personal info on the thread as that is just asking for spam. Info as follows.if you were on the list  but are no longer please just let me know and send me your info and ill get you back on ok  

 Example:

Anne Ghan ( your name first and last )

1234 Square Plaza. (Your address)

Friendship Springs Ne.

Zip code here.

Email address and

BIrthday month optional

size color and preferences for squares you like or need as we will   pm you to ask for your addy if we have some squares to send to you  

its as easy as that

Most of us use RHSS or a comparable 4 ply acrylic yarn. So if you would prefer 6 inch ( or 8 or 12) squares

In shades of greens for instance it could read as such. .

 

"I am looking for 8inch squares in shades of greens or blues. varigated yarn is ok if in those shades, thank you please pm me for addy " .

 

 

 

 Please check this post regularly for updates and changes.

until i can get  info on an update i would advise that you contact the party for  current wants and or needs thank uou !!

. You do not have to send in order to receive it is up to you if you would like to send out some as well to our members

We have lots of talented and generous people on this thread and w like to chat so if you are looking for some squares or some new friends or some New Square Friends then please join us. You might end up with a truly one of a kind Ghan that soon becomes one of your favorites not to mention some friends you might make !!

Not too much to do today seems to me to be a lazy day to stay in day to. Crochet or color or something haha

 

 

YOuknow I was talking too friend that lives I. Another state and she was Telling me that last year she sent her grand kis gifts and such and put a letter to them in it and they ever mentioned some of things she wrote them about. She asked them and they told her they couldn't read it!! She asked why as she knew her. Handwriting. wasn't that bad was it and they told her no grandma, it's not that we don't learn cursive in school anymore! She was astounded no cursive ?? Wow. She said they will be crippled all thei lives from not possessing that skill.

RAndom thought just had to get that out there. I sometime I will look up how many states have stopped teaching cursive and how it has or will affect them later on I life! Astounding for sure huh?

 

Well I do hope you all have a Beautious day today!! I really wasn't expecting iPad toleave that word alone without some how trying to correct it automatically. BUt it did!!

 

I I guess it only likes the little words to fix lik of and am hahaha and ha!!

 

All for now glad for the update owlvamp, those numbers are shrinking right down now to the can do range!! More later.

Day two in our new home. Cloudy all day and a sprinkle or two. We made a run out today to pick up my vacuum aka the big blue monster. We dropped it off last Sat for its 3 year free checkup/maintenance. Got it home and vaccumed the floor, the cat's apartment (huge dog porter with her litter box and her blankie, toys and water) and the cat. No wonder she goes undercover when the closet door opens and big blue comes out. While we were out we stopped for groceries. On the way home I noticed that the closed grocery store in the nearest town has its new name up so it should open soon. It will be so nice to not have to drive 30 miles one way for groceries.

Wow every one is busy today huh. Well anyway i put up a partial list of remaining birthdays for 2016.. I Cant believe how quickly the last 4 going on 5 months have past. I cant wait to get more members to keep us all busy!! I just bought some more manilla envelopes the other day and they are a getting very impatient to get puff'a- Fied!! They and the roll of NEW packing tape have begun whispering at night in the dark. I hear words like WHEN and hurry and puff me up coming from the craft room at night. Seriously!! The hooks also are clammoring for attention and arguing who is the best and for what job!! I dont evn want to get into what the skeins of yarn say!!

 

Hey they can get downright belligerant at times always jockying places so they get chosen first!! And to think, i used to blame Maxie the cat for my messy yarn skeins and balls!! poor little innocent kitty,

 

 

Daughter is coming to pck up tower tomorrow as it is advised before repacing anything she wil need to open the case and chek a

few things and would like to connect t it with another computer first. Trouble shooting I guess.

She is thourough if nothing else l! And its not doing me any good sitting here off either lol

 

well have not accomplished much today probably wont. True to form afer bending over those tubs and showers yesterday back is a bit feeling it today.

 

Sooo tekki (s) willing i should know by Monday lol.

 

All for now. Got a. Couple thing s non back reelated i want to do so dont forget present to years end list up on first post now. If something i s amiss with your listing please pm me and i will correct it. Thanks all have. A GREAT day. Over and out for now.

Mary Jo I am so glad you joined us.

 

We left a little before 8 this morning and are just now getting back home (10pm). We had a bonsai workshop this morning and then some of us went for a late lunch(2pm) and visited for quit a spell. Then swung by my sister and niece's house as I needed to drop off the last 2 afghans I made for Project Linus along with a hotpad they wanted for a gift basket.

We finalized some plans for my birthday. Its a big one and we have had a couple of hard years with my dads illness and death so we are planning on doing something special.

 

 

I am excited about the grocery store opening. The other one officially locked the doors two weeks before Christmas but they quit adequately stocking the store 3 years ago. I have definately got in the habit of always having my cooler bags with us so we could stop for groceries here and there when we are out.
