Comfort Ghan Update

Recommended Posts

All 24 squares of the comfort afghan for Christie (Jordans mom) are joined and the afghan is bordered. I am going to go ahead and add one more round of the medium purple to the afghan and then this one will be finished. I layed it over my bed to have a good look at it to see if it needed another round of purple border and took pics to post the update here.

Here's the closeup of the border before I add one last round.

This afghan is huge (I have a california king bed) but it's definately the perfect afghan to comfort someone.

The borders really "pull" the squares together! I wasn't able to contribute to this one but have enjoyed watching it come together!

 

Great job everyone!

Hey Chelle,

I just realized that I didn't pipe in with how much greater it looks with the border!!!! <img border=0 src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v84/crochetville/rowofhearts.gif" />

 

I also wanted to let you know I will chip in on the shipping cost for you to send it to Rebecca. I know it will probably be around $20 because it's so big <img border=0 src="http://img28.photobucket.com/albums/v84/crochetville/wha.gif" /> Let me know when you have a number on it and I can paypal you or send a check, whichever you prefer!

Thank you everyone, you all did such a wonderful job on the squares - this blanket looks absolutely amazing in person to stand and look at it. All the squares fit together so nicely! Yes the shipping will be quite high to ship the afghan and lapghan. I will let you know, thank you Holly :hug

UPDATE -

 

The afghan and lapghan, along with the slippers, have been mailed to Rebecca. I purchased insurance as well as delivery confirmation on the box. Total shipping cost by priority mail was $13.70, any help to defer that cost is greatly appreciated :) Thanks all! Rebecca, you'll have to let as all know the minute it arrives!!

Yay!!!!

I just paypal'd you $4 towards shipping.

I'm glad it's on it's way & has a safe journey!

 

I think doing delivery confirmation & insurance was the way to go. I sometimes think it makes them take better care of it if they see it's trackable <img border=0 src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v84/crochetville/ideamaybenot.gif" />

AAARRRGGG I feel like crying!! I checked the delivery confirmation number yesterday and again just now on the comfort ghans box and it says there's no record of the number! I mailed it out last Thursday by Priority so there HAS to be some record after 5 days, wouldnt you think?! It was only going to Texas (from CA)! Im going to raise some red flags on the base post office if this box gets lost also! 2 boxes, in a row, within a month from eachother, both with insurance, getting lost. When I print out labels from paypal, they arrive to the recipient just fine - I even mailed out Tiff's by giving it to the post office at the same time I mailed the comfort ghan box but I had printed her label. Im getting so upset. I will check again tomorrow - will probably stop in on the post office and ask what's up to which they will probably tell me I have to wait 30 days just like they did with the first box :worried

Oh no!

Is the tracking number on one of those little green slips or a receipt?
