Today was our Blankets 4 Canada joining party at the Clareview Michaels. Many thanks to those who were able to make it out!
These are the beautifully made squares that were in the bin when I got there - 155 in total. Donations get picked up on a regular basis for joining by volunteers, so we were a little low. I am in the process of finding out how many have been donated in the past couple of months. I'll post it when I have that information. :-)
I spent some time trying to put together squares for an 8 x 6 blanket. There were a whole bunch made in the same wonderful texture that matched sizes, but not quite enough to make 8 x 6, so a few simple crochet ones that closely matched in size were added to fill in the blanks. I brought this batch home to finish, and the others were taken to be worked on by volunteers later.
Eileen from Blankets 4 Canada also brought this co-ordinated set of squares to work on. Some of these were made with glitter yarn! It's going to look pretty amazing when it's done.
Eileen was just whipping through those rows!!
Laura from the Wandering Woolies Meet Up group was able to spend some time helping out. Great to see you, Laura! Thanks. :-D
My daughter, meanwhile, volunteered to sew in loose ends. She did the tall stack you see on the left, and all but about 6 of the small stack in front of her, in the time we had. She collected quite the pile of snipped yarn ends by the time she was done! *L*
Thanks for a great evening, Ladies! :-)
