I can’t wait to finish this afghan to give it away to someone who has breathing problems. I’m actually further along than the picture shows. I am also ready to get going on the next afghan! So exciting!!! I want to thank those who have recently and generously donated to my Need a Hug Project fund so that I may continue creating & giving away these afghans.

I’m so happy that my husband understands my need to spread love, joy and hugs to those who have breathing problems through these afghans. He’s such a great guy!

I only committed to one donated afghans but I wanted more people to leave the conference with a hug!

I’m really excited that I could provide these afghans as my donation to a raffle at the 2016 PHA International Conference this year. I intended to donate only one afghan which was one of my most favorite one that I made.

Here I am standing with Mary Kozik showing off one of my afghans. She is super kind and was instrumental in helping me become involved in the raffle.

This is the third afghan that I donated to the raffle. Unfortunately the picture doesn’t do the colors of the afghan justice. It’s really much brighter and cheerier than in this picture. I think if I have an opportunity to go to the next PH Conference in 2018 in Orlando, Florida… I hope there will be another raffle to which I can donate afghans.

March 2016 and it’s finally finished!

Need a Hug Project

Hopefully this one will go to someone who will be attending the 2016 PH International Conference.

This afghan took me nearly two and a half months to complete which is the longest it’s ever taken for one afghan to be completed. It was definitely labor intensive but also a labor of love. I look forward to giving this one away.

I’m already starting on my next afghan. So get your email to me if you’d like to have one of my creations. As always, they are free. I have had some generous donations. I’ll keep crocheting these afghans until the money runs out.

February Update

Need a Hug Project

Hello! Here’s the update for February. I’m still working on the same afghan as I was working on in January. Since this is a bunch of squares that need to be stitched together, it takes me longer to make this afghan. I am thinking of seeing if I can give it away at the PH International Conference in Dallas, TX this June. Wouldn’t that be fun? I plan to be there!

January/February Need a Hug Afghan

January/February Need a Hug Afghan

My hope is that I can finish it this month! If you need a hug and want your name on my list of recipients, please email me your name, location, and your diagnosis (why you have breathing problems). Lots of love to you all!

January 2016 Need a Hug afghan

Need a Hug Project

January's afghan project for Need a Hug

January’s afghan project for Need a Hug


This is January’s work in progress for the next Need a Hug project. These types of afghans take extra time because I make the squares and then stitch them all together. After that’s done, I crochet a border. So, it takes a little extra time and effort but it’s so worth it to me.

If you live with breathing problems and would like to receive one of these blankets to make you feel hugged on those rough days, email me. Let me know but first read the “About Need a Hug” page. This will tell you more about what I’m trying to accomplish with this project. I just mailed November’s afghan to a recipient who lives in Italy. The donations I receive help me cover the cost of yarn and shipping. So, receiving a Need a Hug afghan never cost you anything. As long as I have funds, I will keep crocheting for my Need a Hug Project.

December Need a Hug Afghan

Need a Hug Project

Hey there! This is a picture of the next afghan. It’s actually completed but I haven’t taken the finished photo of it. I just want to let you see it. I’m currently working on January’s Need a Hug afghan right now. If you need a hug or know of someone who needs a hug because they are having a tough time with their breathing problems, perhaps one of my afghans could be for you. All you need to do is email me because they are free and I send worldwide… wherever you get mail! Let me know what you are diagnosed with and I can put you on my list of recipients. Be well and stay safe!

This is an update picture of December's afghan. It's actually finished but not shown as finished.
