Love-Squared is officially in it’s 6th month of existence. Donating the first 14 afghans to Family House of Toledo, is by far the best way to celebrate. Check out the photos of Renee, Family House Director, and me with your beautiful afghans. I couldn’t help but smile looking at all the afghans draped over tables. The blankets are so happy, beautiful and begging to be snuggled with. It warms my heart knowing all of your hard work is going to be well loved and treasured for years to come. Congratulations to all of you who have helped make our first six months so perfect.
We are happy to announce there are two more drop boxes for squares. The Michaels craft stores at Monroe/Talmedge and Airport/Reynolds have boxes located in the classrooms at the back of the stores. As part of the “Warm Up America” campaign, the Yarn Council and Michaels are promoting squares for charity. Thanks to a couple of great knit/crochet instructors and supporters of Love-Squared, we have been chosen to receive those squares.
One more exciting bit of news before I sign off. I counted the squares donated since October 1, 2011. We have already received enough squares for EIGHT afghans! We are well on our way to reaching the goal of doubling our first donation! That is amazing. I wish I could thank you all individually, but there are so many of you. I always say it, but I could not do this without you. You have shown so much generosity in your squares, yarn donations and telling everyone you know about us. Thank you, thank you and thank you some more!!!
