A very quick update!

Need a Hug Project

I just want to let you know what I’ve been working on for last month and also my current project for this month.

The completed afghan was made from all my little ball of scrap leftover yarn from other afghan projects.

April’s afghan reminds me of Spring time and Easter.

November 2016 Need a Hug Update

Need a Hug Project

Wow! Is it nearly November already? I’ve been busy crocheting like crazy. In fact, I even crocheted while on vacation last month. I’m super dedicated to this project of spreading hugs to those with breathing problems and/or using oxygen.

The afghan I finished in September has already been shipped out and received by a lovely women in Illinois. Yay!!!

With this post, I am giving you my most recent update picture of the next afghan I’m working on. This one has already been tagged for a specific event. Remember, every afghan I make is given away at no charge because of kind & generous donors. My thanks to them for helping me keep this project going which helps me stay a little more active.

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!

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!

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!

October 2015 Need a Hug afghan finished!

Wheww! This afghan took much longer than I thought it would but… Wow! It turned out great. The person getting this one will be so happy and well hugged! But don’t fear… I’ve already started my next Need a Hug afghan. I’ve chosen a fall color scheme for this next afghan. I think it will look lovely.

These afghan are crocheted and sent to those who have breathing problems and could use a hug. How can you help give hugs? By donating, a few dollars goes a long way in helping me purchase yarn and pay for the shipping cost to send these afghans out… even worldwide! The furthest I’ve sent one of my Need a Hug afghans was to New Zealand! How cool is that? A hug from Texas has reached all the way to New Zealand!! I couldn’t have done that without the generous help of all my donors. Lots of love to you!! Take a peek at my blog to see what life is like using oxygen. livingono2forlife.wordpress.com *HUGS* to you all!

September 2015 Afghan

September 2015 Afghan

September 2015 Afghan

This Need a Hug afghan is from a pattern I’ve never tried before. It’s a sampler stitch afghan. Plus, I added a few of my own stitches to make it bigger. It will be finished soon and going out in the mail within two weeks. I’m so excited to be able to spread a little sunshine and happiness in the recipient’s life just by making her an afghan full of hugs!

This is made possible by the donations I receive through GoFundMe. All donations go to the costs of yarn and postage to ship out the afghans. Without your help, I couldn’t make this happen. So, thank you so much for brightening these people’s lives. *HUG*
