This week I’m ‘sewing’ some wild oats…well…you’ll see! Take a look in at…
some sew/crochet projects that I’ve been working on,
some homemade goodies made with oats!
I want to start the week with another post about the crochet squares that are needed for Tornado victims.
Being near some of the devastation of the Tornadoes, earlier this year, I did an online search and found this little yarn shop (A Tangled Yarn) that has coordinated a great project to make Afghans for families that lost everything to Mother Nature.
To read earlier post go to…
Tornadoes…helping those in need (March 2010)
My goal was to make at least one hundred of these little 7 x 9 inch squares, to be used to make Afghans for Tornado victims. I thought they were just for baby blankets…but they are for any type Afghan. I haven’t gotten very far…so I made a call to check on the progress of the project.
I was told that there will be a need for as many of these squares as they can collect…for quite some time. The lady that I talked to said they are trying to contribute to as many communities affected by the Tornadoes of this past Spring as possible. So…back to work on these little squares!
This is a wonderful way to use some leftover yarn from other crochet projects. I do enjoy doing something in the evening hours while Poppy (that’s hubby) and I are relaxing and maybe watching something on TV. Because of the great need to help the families affected by disaster…my goal is now to do more than one hundred afghan squares. Anybody up for a challenge? I challenge any of you…with the talent to knit or crochet…to do one hundred quilt squares to donate to this worthy cause!
Here is the contact information:
A Tangled Yarn, located in Nicholas, KY
The squares need to be size 7 x 9, knit or crochet, made from acrylic, worsted yarn.
