A friend of mine is going to have a block party on February 5. At her block party she and others will sew together 6 inch crocheted or knitted blocks. She will send the blankets made to an orphanage in Eastern Europe. This is the second year Sarah has done this, and I hope she will do it again. 🙂
Last year I was unable to send any blocks, but this year I got quite a few done. I made 11 blue, 7 red, and 6 brown. They need 36 blocks per blanket, and I made 24 blocks. If Sarah does it again, I will try to make more next year.
Doing this project accomplished one of my 2011 goals. Hurray! Now if I can just finish the others. 🙂
Here are some pictures of the blocks I made:
