Hi all!  I don't know that I'll get a chance to get on here tomorrow (actually today,  I just saw the time, lol) since we're having my sons, their wives and the grandkids over for brunch!  Yippee!  I so look forward to seeing them!  But I wanted to wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Easter.  I hope you all have a very special day.  I know that we aren't as active here as we once were, but the scarves are still needed and are accepted, so as they trickle in  I'll try to start letting you know again.  I'm sorry that I have let that lapse.  Adele, I hope you are feeling better!

 

Happy Easter Everyone!!!  :rabbit

Thank you everyone!  I was able to have a wonderful day with my family yesterday.  Mother Nature even cooperated so that we could have an egg hunt outdoors, lol.  That was a big hit with all of the little ones.

Hello my dear friends,

I know that it has been quite a while since we have chatted.  I'm sure some of you are wondering if this project is still active.  The answer is a great big YES! Lol!  I want to take this time to thank all of you that have continued to send in scarves, etc during this time when I may have been hard to reach.  Some of you know that life has played some jokes on me and my health has decided to give me a run for my money, but I'm giving it my all.  Unfortunately that leaves me pretty worn out and tired most days. However, there are days that I receive boxes full of beautiful scarves/wristbands/lapsquares and my day is brightened because I know that some other survivors will feel this love too when they receive them. Thank you so much for helping me  to keep this this going.  I know that I will keep on making and sending in my scarves until I can no longer hold a crochet hook or knitting needle., so if you ever wonder about the project, that's your answer, lol, Thank you all so very, very much! (((hugs)))

So sorry that I am this late in answering your question!  I am glad that you found out though, Yes, I am still doing this and will continue doing it as long as I am able to.  Unfortunately, the need for comfort (as in-there continue to be more survivors every day) is great.  My dream is that one day we would not be needed because there would be no more abuse!  Wouldn't that be wonderful!  Anyway, sorry for the departure, lol.  I'd welcome any scarves coming my way.  It has slowed down a bit since I haven't been as vocal lately.  Thank you for asking.....

Popping in to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  

 

To answer the question ...yes, this project is still active.  It is through wonderful folks like you that continue to send things in even when I've not been good at updating or being online.  You show that you care and know that I'm doing my best under the circumstances. Thank you...

Happy New Year Everyone!!!  Oh my, has it been a year since I have posted in here?  I will hang my head in shame.  2016 was not the best of years for me, but I am not going to look back, only forward and hope for a much better year ahead for myself and everyone else.  I want to thank all of you that have continued to send items to me right thru the year.  You lifted my spirits and made my days bright just knowing that there were angels like you out there thinking of others and sending "hugs" to them.  I received several packages the last week of Dec. and will make arrangements to get them to the shelter soon. Thank you all so very much.  We will continue on in 2017!  :manyheart  :ghug
