When the first package arrived I was so happy, you could see the love that was put into the squares and I knew I it was going to be an amazing journey. Each day more and more squares arrived, and I started to be a bit overwhelmed because I was not sure how they were going to come together. The squares just kept coming and coming. We ended up with 60- 6 inch squares and 15- 12 inch squares after they all arrived. They came from all over the United States and even a few from Canada!!
Sandy had mentioned a surgery date of January 7, so that was my next goal. To get it mailed out by that day!! As I laid out all the squares, I began to worry that day to would come and go and I would still have them all at my house!! There was still so much to do and the afghan was going to be HUGE!!
I have made many granny square blankets over the years but I had never used the "flat braid method" to join them. once I got going with that, it was so EASY, each square was being added a lot faster then I had anticipated!! As I finished adding one, I couldn't wait to add the next!! As I joined each squared, I said a few prayers for Sandy. January 9 I FINALLY FINSHED!!
What an honor to be a part this whole journey!! I am so happy to each and every lady that sent one square or a bunch of squares, and the donations to get the yarn to join and mail the package out!! Can you believe it weighed 7 pounds 7.6 ounces?? But just to see all the love that was put into the whole thing, and the wonderful reaction from Sandy, she said forget wrapping her in a hug, it can wrap her whole family <3 !! I would do it all over again, maybe with a few less bumps in the road!!
Continued prayers for Miss Sandy, We ALL love you!!!
