Hi All:

 

My older sister is going in the hospital next Monday for her 6th Stint in her heart. She has CHF (chronic heart failure) and is cold all the time now. :( I know it's the holidays,:eek but I'm hoping you'll can spare 30 minutes or so and make a square or two.:D I'm looking for 8" squares in blues. Red Heart preferably. :)

 

She's really small at only 5' so I'm thinking I'm only going to need 25 squares total. With a border around each and border around the ghan, I'm thinking it will be 44-46" square. Just enough for her to sit on the couch curled up and snuggly! :lol

 

Thanks so much in advance. If you send a PM or a message, I'll send you my address. :)

 

:hug

Cindy

 

Updated today 12/13/08 - Have 21 of the 25 in house already! Expecting a few more in the mail in the next few days so will work on putting the border on them while I await the last few!

 

Thanks so much! :hug

 

Updated today 12/24/08 - The ghan is put together and it is blocking. Will post a picture later on today.

 

Thanks all who helped! :hug

:hiHi Cindy! I'd be happy to whip a few up for you. :yes Are you using red heart "blue"? Are you joining with white or aran? I'm asking because I have a cute heart pattern that has a white background and I want to match yours. Please let me know. Thank you. :hug

Oh, and please pm your address. :yes

I think I have responded to all PM's :D

 

Thank you so much for the offer of help! :) I'm probably going to border the squares in pure white to make them "pop", with a reverse SC final on the border in one of the blues....depends on which color stands out the most.

Cindy,

 

Thanks for the address, I've mailed the square as a "large letter" via regular Air Mail, it should be there within the week **crosses fingers**.

 

Regards,

Marika

Not a problem. :) I'm working on some of them and have 4 done. :) When the squares come in, I am putting one of those white tags on it with the person's first name and state/country so my sis knows where they came from. I'm also doing a pure white border around them. :) It's going great. I have 6 completed with border. Received 2 already. :cheer

:hug

 

 

Cindy dear I have n not sent them. I have no idea what happened but I slept from 6:45 am until 1:30 pm. So it will go out tomorrow. I hope your sis is ok.

Cindy,

 

Just a heads up: Yesterday I braved the arctic cold and ice and mailed the square I made for you last week. It was sent 1st class so should arrive pretty soon.

My sister is doing very well. I saw her today and the "gray" tinge is gone. :clap She said this is the best she has felt in a long time. :) I didn't tell her about the comfortghan as I am keeping it a secret! :)

 

Thanks for asking. :hug

I am so sorry about your sister. I somehow missed this so didn't get to make any squares for you. If I had seen it before I would have loved to participate in this. Prayers for your sister. Please post a pic of her with her new comfortghan!
