Hello my dear friends, I know that it has been quite a while since we have chatted.  I'm sure some of you are wondering if this project is still active.  The answer is a great big YES! Lol!  I want t

Yes, they are talking of more snow,bleh.  I guess winter is going to go out like a lion, lol.  I've never cared much for the heat when I've visited FL, but I wouldnt mind some of it right about now. 

Thank you so much.  I'll keep a look out.  You wouldn't believe it.  Now I'm battling kidney stones! It never stops!    Whatcha gonna do though, I just pick up my hooks and try to ignore the pain,

I've finally got another box finished. I just have to tape it up and send it off on Thursday. Individually, the scarves are all very interesting and nice colours - but all together, in one box? AAAAAGHH!! It's a fight to the death - which scarf is the most colourful?! :eek

 

There are a few scarves that might be more suitable for children, because of the colours, but I'm sure the nice ladies at the centre will decide that themselves.

Too funny, exploding scarves:laughroll I have this picture in my head.

Hahaha! Do you know those trick cans they used to have - you know, you'd open them and cloth snakes would pop out? That's what's going to happen with this box - you'll open it and scarves will spring out of it like a Jack-in-the- box!! I'm not allowed to send a bigger box, due to post office restrictions, so I take the biggest box and I STUFF them in! I was sitting on the box, trying to poke in the fringes of the scarves while DH was trying to tape it shut without taping me to it :lol Honestly, sometimes I wonder if our neighbours can see in through our window, and if they can, whether they think we're insane! We're going to open the door some day to find men in white coats, waiting to cart us away... :eek

I am happy to report I have 4 or 5 scarves. Not my planned 8 by march but they will do. I was wondering though will fingerless gloves work? if so I have a pattern I found that works up really quick (faster then a scarf) & can whip some up for you. I imagine not everyone likes wrist warmers (like me :lol) & maybe would enjoy fingerless gloves. I'd be using this pattern if so.

Hi Jessica! :yay yeah for scarves! Those fingerless gloves are beautiful! Ok, so here's the story, lol....I have not varied from the wrist warmers in the past so that everything stays simple, but if you would like to whip up some fingerless gloves I will definitely show them to the councelors! I have a feeling that they would go over very well with the younger survivors! They love the wrist warmers.:hug

I have 3 pair done. but I am keeping the first pair I made for me when my wrists swell & it is cold. One is for a regular size hand & I think the other pair would be for a smaller hand or a large hand of a child. I will send them to you along with the scarves next week.

Hello my wonderful friends! It's that time again! I delivered our creations to the crisis center this morning. I should say that my wonderful hubby dropped them off for me! I was having some medical tests done at the time. That's the other thing I need to mention. I'll be missing for a couple of days next week (Thur and Fri) because I'm having surgery, my gallbladder needs to come out. If some of you "regular" folks wouldn't mind keeping an eye on the thread I'd appreciate it. I should be home by Saturday if anyone has any questions that can't be answered by going to my website.

Now, on to better things! Here is the slideshow of the beautiful scarves and wristbands! Thank you everyone!!!!! :hug

Hey Ann, you know we will be thinking of you and sending :hug and prayers.

We will certainly keep an eye on the site, you just take care of you.

 

The scarves on the site are very pretty. The ladies on the ville always do such nice work.
