So ladies on the list, use everything and the kitchen sink!!!
I have Kitchen Sink, and received Box of Chocolates this afternoon. Thanks for the lovely book marks and Mary Englebreit Journal!

My daughter was visiting and knitted a few rows onto Kitchen Sink. She loves all animals.

Volunteering at Humane Society
I spent the afternooon volunteering at an adoption event for the Wichita County Humane Society. I had never volunteered before but my son and his girlfriend were going and asked me to come along. We had a great time! I will be volunteering regularly at the shelter now that I have seen the sweet animals there. They will take snuggles and blankets. I am going to try and make a few sewn ones as well as knitted ones.
I am going back tomorrow to visit some of the dogs and meet some of the kitties in the cat habitat with the kids. Will try to post pics if I can get them.

It really hurts me to do this. My husband will soon be changing jobs, and we will be losing a large portion of our income for a period of time. Because I need to tighten our budget during this transitional period, and mailing snuggles costs extra money, I'm going to have to withdraw from the oddball snuggle project for a while. I hate to do this so much, but I'm going to have to remove my name from the snuggles I've signed for. I'll be back the second our finances return to normal.

The blog is updated on the right bar again. If I missed something, like you have a blanket or are still waiting on one that hasn't arrived, please let me know. I would like to get the ones in progress finished up so that we can get the # of blankets down a bit because of how small our group has gotten recently.
Thanks everyone!

Hello All!

Just a note to say that "Kitchen Sink", and "Box of Chocolates" are ready for the next knitters. Sorry it took me so long, but we had a few obstacles. My DH went in for an outpatient surgery, and we found out that he has non-hodgkins lymphoma and chronic lymphocitic leukemia. What a shock! His surgery was on the Monday after I lost my job.

Between taking care of him as he recovered from his surgery, and picking up the slack while he's unable to cut the grass and his other "husbandly" chores, I was just too exhausted to knit for awhile there. Back on it though...I even brought them with me to a few of his doctors and procedures appointments. He's doing okay, the cancer is very treatable. He started his treatments last week, and so far, he's only had a couple of bad days.

Just let me know who to mail those snuggles to, and I'll get them to the post office! Also, I have a set of needles from the snuggle that I completed. Any suggestions for themes for the next snuggle?

Melanie,
I am so sorry to hear about your troubles. I just knew that something must be wrong because you pretty much disappeared for a while. My mom is a breast cancer survivor so I understand the way that it can totally rock your world in a bad way. Things have been pretty slow as the summer has heated up so I don't think any one is upset about the delay. I am getting ready to go back to my teaching job next week but will work some this week to get my new room ready. I will be praying for both your employment situation and your husbands treatment.
