My sister used garage sale yarn to pad out her Christmas box to me. What a special sister!! Anyway, this yarn is in really good shape, masculine colors, so I'm making rectangles for this project with them.

Thanks to everyone who dropped me a note at rectangle6x9@comcast.net about joining The Handmade Afghans to Thank Our Armed Forces Project!!:ty

 

We are starting the new year with gathering 6"x9" rectangles for our next Put Together Event (PTE) on February 3rd. This is the time where we actually design the handmade afghans. Check out some pictures from our last PTE at http://www.rectangle6x9.shutterfly.com

 

Looking forward to getting your 6"x9" acrylic rectangles - remember each one is a small thank you for someone who has sacrifced for our safety.

 

Thank you for your interest in thanking those wounded in service to our country, Deborah :rabbit

That's why doing the 6" x 9" rectangle pattern is so great... also lets us combine the work of at least 49 people in each handmade afghan. Another way of saying "lots of people are thinking of you and sending you good thoughts" :hug

 

Don't forget to mail the finished 6"x9" rectangles in time for our February 3rd Put Together Event (where we design and lay out the afghans). It would be great if I could have them by January 25th.....

 

Thank you for helping to thank those wounded in service to our country, Deborah

Hey Deborah...I just sent an email to you to get the 'welcome note'. I should be able to start making rectangles this weekend. I am very excited about getting involved in this project.

 

Thanks,

I emailed via the website last night and am waiting for the welcome note. I hope I didn't jump the gun too much, as I've already crocheted 3 rectangles using the directions on the website.

 

Thank You Deborah!!!

I got the note Deborah thank you. I started making rectangles last night with some nice brown yarn that somebody gave me, seems only right that I should use that as a donation. I'm going on a little trip this weekend and should be able to make up some more rectangles then...thanks:hook
