Recent completion

I took a quick break from OPH comfortghans to assemble this comfort afghan for a gentleman who lost his wife very suddenly. She was only 27 years. The picture does not do it justice. The square makers sent me the most beautiful squares in shades of tan and brown and it is assembled and edged in forest green.

In Honor of Charles B. Hester

This comfort afghan is being sent to the mother of Army Pfc. Charles B. Hester in his honor. Some of these are very, very emotional for me to assemble and this was one of them. They are all difficult because each one is representative of someone who has left behind a grieving family, but this one got to me even more than normal. I hope it provides some small measure of comfort.

In Honor of Emerson N. Brand

This is the comfort afghan for the Heartmade Blessings OPH that I completed last night and I am getting ready to mail. It is being sent to the parents of Sgt. Emerson N. Brand. I saw some pictures from his funeral on a tribute site and his mother's face broke my heart. I can not begin to imagine the pain. I hope that this brings them comfort in some very small way. Thank you to all those that contributed squares.
