Share a Square

A good blogging friend, Shelly Tucker, whom I've never actually met incidentally, has decided to take on the momentous task of organizing Share-A-Square for another year. The woman eventually has to dedicate an entire room of her house to this venture, as people send their crocheted squares to her house from all over the world.

Shelly has a heart for those in need, and this year the need is a group of kids at a camp in South Texas. The camp is for children with cancer, and Shelly's goal is to provide each one of these campers with a little bit of comfort by giving them a crocheted afghan made of 80 6"x 6" squares, each square representing a different person who is thinking of them and praying for them.

This is a year long project, and Shelly has put the call out for the campers for next year. Last time, Shelly paired up with a group of ladies called "the Happy Hookers" who lovingly pieced together each square into the final afghan that was given each child.

You can get the information you need to participate at Shelly's blog, Shelly is inspirational in this task, and her telling of events is always entertaining. Please look her up and participate! Be sure to look at the afghans from the previous Share-A-Square venture.

You are such a sweetie! Yes, the guest room is ready to house the afghan squares, and I'm getting excited. I think the Facebook group page will probably move this thing much more quickly than we did last time. Thanks for you support, girl!
