Believe this is the last picture of Rusty Nail you saw in the works. I had worked on this ghan in the fall while traveling with 2 girl friends to Hilton Head. Was making good head way with it, until the holidays came upon us, work got busy, as did family needs. So, I packed it up again with me when I headed back to Hilton Head the last couple of weeks with Dear Hubby.
You see it laid out drying after being laundered, and if you click you see I used a little bit of a different edge on this one. Sometimes I like a regular straight edge, sometimes I like a little something different.
Lots of travel in this afghan, if you consider it traveled with me twice from Ohio to Hilton Head SC and back, AND think of where all the separate squares came from. Some of these squares are knitted and some are crocheted and they came from many many different pairs of helping hands. It's edged and joined with several different shades of orange to help bring in all the various colors.
I'm going to try something a little different with keeping our stats. I'm listing our end numbers from 2015 and will subtract our current number as means of keeping our goal in front of us. I'll show the goal number in Red. Let's strive not just to match last years numbers, but.........work towards even more. Thank you for all you do. As time goes on, we won't see the year end numbers, we'll see the previous goal and subtract the new donation from it. Hopefully we'll find this helpful and not too cumbersome...if so, we'll return to our previous format.
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 110
Rain Poncho's: 105

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.
