Shelly also has a weekly meme called Only The Good - it's on vacation right now - but do check back there in the fall.
If you crochet, chances are good that you have a handful of tiny balls of yarn. Though they aren’t big enough to create a project, you can’t bring yourself to throw them away!
Here is your opportunity to use that yarn for a good cause. It’s called “Share A Square” Our mission is simple:
We are going to blanket some children who are
battling cancer with afghans filled with our love!
- Over the next year, we will create 150 afghans to give to children at Camp Discovery cancer camp in South Texas (in July of 2011).
- Each afghan will contain 80 crocheted squares (each 6″ x6″) made by 80 different people
- Each square will have a laminated card attached with the name and location of the creator of the square (business card size — 3 1/2″ x 2″)
- Each child will receive the afghan and a binder ring (probably attached to a necklace of some kind) for holding the collection of tags.
I tried to answer any questions on the FAQ page AND I have set up a Facebook group (although I’m still not sure what to do with it). Why don’t you go join (or send your mother, if you don’t crochet)? It will make me feel less foolish.
Am I a bit nervous about the enormity of this task? Oh, yes, indeed! I have butterflies in my stomach, but as Dr. Rob Gilbert says:
butterflies in your stomach.
Just get them to fly
