WELCOME and Thank you
MRS ABi and hubby...
First and foremoste THANK YOU to both of you, for your service to our country! We are so blessed to have people like you in these very important roles. I so understand the sacrifices you make in your personal life and want you to Know that you are in my families prayers.

My husband was in the army for 14 years and was stationed in Ft Lewis for a few years as well! As a matter of fact we were just up in Eatonville over 4th of July for a family reunion, what a small world.

I hope you enjoy the knitting and crocheting as it is for a wonderful cause. And yes .. it is very theraputic in many ways.

Gods speed to you. KC

The Handmade Afghans to Thank Our Armed Forces Project is a day away from our next Put Together Event (PTE) where we design the handmade afghans for our military members wounded in service to our country.
Thought I would give you an update on our 6"x9" rectangle count...right now we have/have coming to the event
over 8,000 6"x9" rectangles!!!
Enough to lay out over 170 handmade afghans.


Thank you to EVERYONE who contributed one or more 6"x9" rectangles!!!

We will need more 6"x9" (acrylic) rectangles soon - please think of making one or more. If you are interested drop me a note at rectangle6x9@comcast.net and I'll send you more info.
Thank YOU for helping to thank those wounded in service to our country!!! Deborah

Hugs to you, MrsAbi. My husband has been in the navy for 13 1/2 years so I know how much being apart sucks.

This is a great idea. Count me in for some rectangles.
