Project Title and Brief Description
Squares for Pine Ridge Reservation
Goal was to collect 1,000 afghan squares, edge them and send them along with yarn for joining them to PRR. The ladies at Oyate Teca Project on PRR are doing the joining.
Why Was This Your Best Project From 2010?
This project was the best because it succeeded beyond my wildest dreams. So far more than two dozen wonderful crocheters have sent me 1,755 squares. Over 1,000 squares have been edged and sent on. The balance are in the process of being edged and matched into sets for mailing
- I learned that there are people in this world with generous hearts. Willing to give of their time and fortune to people they don’t know. God bless them all.
