Ready to crochet Need a Hug afghans again

Need a Hug Project

I’m making a public announcement that I’ll be resuming the Need a Hug Project. Yay!! I’ll keep you posted with pictures of what I’ll be working on.

Thank you for being so patient with me needing a break due to my health. Love y’all! I have to say… I’m really excited to get started again.

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.

February AND March Update!

Need a Hug

Okay… Wow! I haven’t updated you on the two most current crocheted “Need a Hug” afghans I’ve been working on lately. February’s afghan is finished and ready to be mailed as soon as I slap that postage on the box. (Most likely tomorrow morning!) yay!

I’m working hard on March’s afghan. I’m using my leftover balls of yarn from other Need a Hug afghans. So, it is looking interesting for sure. When I look at it, it reminds me that with breathing problems, everyday is different. You take the good days and bad days and work to make something beautiful out of them.

If you have breathing problems and need a hug and would like to be placed on my list to get an afghan, you must email me at goredrider@gmail.com and let me know your diagnosis and a little bit about yourself.

As always, these afghans are free to the recipient because of generous people who donate to my gofundme or my paypal account to cover the cost of yarn and postage. I wish I could put into words how thankful I am for their kindness. *huge hug* to you.

January 2017 Need a Hug Update

January 2017 Need a Hug

If you’ve been wondering if I’m still crocheting, wonder no more! Hooray! I’ve only taken a little over a week off crocheting to enjoy the holidays. Really it was more like time to put the Christmas decorations up and put them all away with a little time spent with my sisters on New Year’s Day. I was a little wiped out after all of that. I really needed a break but I did get December’s Need a Hug afghan in the mail.

It really feels weird to me when I take a break from crocheting. I feel almost fidgety. So, I can’t really take long breaks away before I find myself with a hook and yarn in my hands again. However, my health has declined again and I’m slower in mobility. I get tired faster and need to rest even more until I get the hang of my new reality.

So, if you are waiting for an afghan from me, don’t give up me. I’m nearly finished with January’s afghan and I know I’ll be cruising into the next month with another afghan in the works.

I know it’s easier to go about your day as usual but when you see your chance to do a good thing, Pay It Forward and expect nothing in return. Just do it out of kindness and love for the human race. ❤️ Stay well everyone!

December’s sneak preview

Need a Hug Project

December 2016

I just want to update you on what I’m working on for the next Need a Hug afghan. It should be done sometime early December this year. So exciting. Email me at goredrider@gmail if you’d like to place your name on the list to receive a Need a Hug afghan. They are free thanks to the donations I get from some awesome and generous people.

Sometimes, I will crochet little things between afghans, such as hats or pet Christmas stockings. I’ll try to get a picture of those posted soon. Have a great weekend!!!

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!

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.
