A Temporary End…

Need a Hug Project

For the past 3, almost 4 years, I have been crocheting tirelessly to create many afghans and lapghans for those of us who use oxygen or have breathing problems.

I’ve come to the point where I need to take a temporary break. I have finished the current lapghan that I’ve been working on since January and I’ll be getting that out into the mail very soon. It’s the longest time I’ve taken to crochet an afghan. I’ll try to get you a picture of it soon. I actually have a picture but it’s on my phone but I don’t have that next to me right now. Sorry!

I will also be closing the GoFundMe account until I decide to restart this project again. I may decide to make a few afghans here and there and have a drawing for a winner of one. My husband has always supported what I have been doing with this project.

For those who have donated to this Need a Hug Project, you have touched many people’s lives and helped put smiles on their faces as well as made them feel as if someone truly cared about what they are going through with their breathing. You’ve helped me make all of this possible and I am grateful for your help.

I hope this will only end up as a short break from creating these afghans. I will let you know when I resume the Need a Hug Project by keeping you updated on my Living On O2 for Life Blog.

I wish you all well.

August 2015 Need a Hug afghan.

I’m so very excited about this month’s Need a Hug afghan. It is nearly finished, in fact I should have it finished within this weekend. Then I’ll drop it in the mail. This afghan is going to a sweet 19 year old who has been diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension as of 2014.

My next afghan will be going to an older woman who has breathing problems of a different diagnosis. I hope that each of the afghans I crochet will give the recipients a lot of hugs and smiles on their faces knowing that there are people who truly care about them.

As always, thank you so much to the generous donors to the Need a Hug project. Lots of love to you all!

Need a Hug

Living On Oxygen for Life

Good afternoon everyone! I have finally started a blog solely for the use of posting about my Need a Hug Project updates. I’ve been giving away these afghans and lapghans for almost two years now. I was posting Need a Hug updates in my Living On O2 for Life blog but I wanted to add a little separation of the two so that the really important Living On Oxygen for Life information doesn’t get lost with this project. If you are new to Need a Hug, please click on the ABOUT tab above to read what it’s all about and how YOU can receive a lapghan or afghan too.

My goal with Need a Hug is to make your sad day better, to wrap you in a warm hug with one of my afghans, and to remind you that people care about you.

If you’d like to follow this blog to keep up with which afghan I’m crocheting currently or what packages I’ve sent out, sign up to receive email updates. Look to your right and you’ll see how. *HUGS*
