I know some of you are following the blankets for youth shelter project on my blog, and for those who don't I have a few pictures. These blankets were creatively put together (by yours truly) from a bunch of squares that were previously made by anonimous knitters.

Some ladies from a knitting group I belong to helped with the stitching, but I stitched a whole lot of squares, too.

Funny, I was always terrified of large projects and I think I somehow got over it with these blankets :)

This is the first one, more info about it here (http://halifaxcharityknitters.wordpress.com/2013/02/17/this-blanket-was-on-tv/)

Those are gorgeous, Olha! You sewed them together perfectly, and the squares are such delightful, cheery colors.

Next thing you know, you'll be making fabric quilts--although these are just as good as quilts, maybe even better since they're a lighter weight without the batting.

Wonderful, Olha, wonderful! And of course, your photography is stellar as well. It's so nice to view a beautiful piece in a beautiful setting as well!

You're doing a great work!
