Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, looks like we're back up and running again here at C'Ville! :clap

As of this morning, I now have 51 squares completed!!!!!! My goal was 50, so anything above this amount is above and beyond what I had planned!!! :yay

I see you guys have kept busy crocheting away on your squares! TODAY is the LAST DAY so keep on plugging away! Once you're day is over (midnight your time), post your totals (including square sizes, as in 6",8", etc.) and I will be letting everyone know who the winners are tomorrow night!

GO, TEAM, GO!!! :cheer

ughh, this has been a really bad week for me... I've had so much to do and been so stressed out (I think I've had no mare than 15 hours of sleep total since Monday) so I've only gotten 9 done. I'm still happy I've completed that many considering the circumstances! Everyone is posting such great totals so far though! :clap

as of right now I have 15 done, Its a little harder to do with a hungry baby than I thought it would be lol. But I still have some time to get some more done I'm hoping to have 25 by the end of the night. I'll post my total at midnight =o)

I keep doing the same 6 in squares ....because the Lapghans are for the NH and I would like them all to be the same ( No jealousy can come up

that - A-way...lol )


Your very welcome...

It was fun

Hi all,


I did my 35 - 7.5 inch squares

I did, 1 - 8.5 inch (circle of Hope Square - really nice)

I did 1 -6.5 inch square - didn't seem exciting enough for a 'ghan

I did 1- 14 inch square


So I got 38 all told.


This was a great CAL and I would do it again. it did get me to finish all the squares for one lapghan

Ok, it's MIDNIGHT my time and here are my totals:

50 - 6" inch squares & 1 - 10" square = 51 squares in all!!! :yay

I had plans of making at least a few more today, but 5.5 hours of homework and going to my first Writing Club meeting at the college distracted me! My goal was 50, so I'm HAPPY!!! :hook

I've just glanced at the posts of what some of you have told us so far, but I'm not going to read them in entirety until EVERYONE turns in their totals! I'm afraid I'll miss someone, and I don't want to do that! :no

Tomorrow night I will post the winners to make sure everyone gets a chance to get their totals in! We could all be on the time zone, but chances are probably not! I want it to be fair for everyone! :yes

Ok, I'll be back tomorrow night!!! CONGRATS to ALL OF US, whether we made one or many squares for charity! Every square makes a difference!!! Thanks for joining me too!! I LOVE doing these kinds of things with friends!! :ghug

Sweet dreams everyone!!

I wound up with 25 6" squares. Which is good for me lol.

I made a dumb mistake. I decided to try a new square for me. I switched to a sunflower sq. Finished 1 and wasted time by doing 30 of the brown centers. No time to finish them lol.

Had a ball!! Hope we do this again!:clap
