Wow. You are amazing.
Let me know if you need someone to seam some more for you. I can workout the shipping costs and stuff. Let me know!
September 18, 2007 at 06:22 PM
What a great "thank you"! I'm so happy I could be there Saturday and just wish I could have sewn faster and put together more squares. I heard a rumor that you made the delicious soup. It was fantastic - would you share the recipe?
September 18, 2007 at 06:51 PM
That's amazing, so very moving. You really are such an exceptional human being, and everyone who joined 'hands'...
September 18, 2007 at 06:58 PM
Wow. Bravo. Awesome. You are such an inspiration.
September 18, 2007 at 07:01 PM
What a beautiful video, so well done. I am moved not only by the time and the effort you put forth but the extreme love that is involved with this project. Let me know when you are ready to deal with the remaining squares. I willsend money for postage so you can send a blanket or two this way. You earned your wings in heaven with this project. God Bless you and everyone that participated in any way.

Fabulous. Breathtaking. Wow.
September 18, 2007 at 08:08 PM
This is absolutely amazing and awe inspiring! God bless you, your family, and all those who took part in such a beautiful and special project!

I've been checking ten times a day to see how the seaming day went. Oh Laura, what an accomplishment. I know it took many hands to do this, but you were the force behind it. The video is as beautiful as the afghans themselves. Bravo!
September 18, 2007 at 08:43 PM
I'm teared up !
Can't wait to get the rest of them done so everyone can have one. The love in just those 12 (? However many we got done!) is enough to move mountains.
September 18, 2007 at 08:58 PM
The video was amazing, so well done! You coordinated a huge project and did an awesome job.
September 18, 2007 at 09:00 PM
You should be proud of what you accomplished!
Unfortunately I was unable to make it to the seaming, but if you have more to do, please yell at me!
September 18, 2007 at 09:02 PM
I don't quite know how something can be heart-wrenching and heart-warming at the same time, but this is it. Thank you so very much for sharing all you accomplished and for allowing us all to feel as though we were there seaming with you.
You *do* know that your Father sees and knows and is blessed...

What a beautiful video, what a beautiful idea and what an extraordinarily beautiful founder and organizer!! Thank you for all you've done - please let me know what more I can do! I'll work something out to help with the rest. My job meant I couldn't make it last weekend - which meant I missed Harlot too! Please keep us posted! Hugs and more more hugs!
September 18, 2007 at 10:47 PM
Carole and I were wondering how it all went! You really did such a wonderful thing and a great job of pulling it off. You are such a giving and caring person and I, for one, am so happy to call you friend. You rock, grrl!
September 18, 2007 at 11:20 PM
Thank You so very much for making the video for us to see the results of the seaming party. It is fantastic
I have been checking your blog at least once daily for news about it. Thank you also for organizing this project and for allowing all of us to be a part of it.
Hugs to you !

Absolutely wonderful Laura!!!

Thank you for the beautiful video. The blankets are just wonderful too. I hope this will help me to remember the people in America that have lost so much in recent days. Thank you and your great family and friends. God Bless, Love Pam

It was so good to see how the afghans put together. My children and I enjoyed seeing the video. Thank-you so much for organizing it. We were thinking of you here in Wales, UK on Saturday. I'm just sad that I live so far away, that I couldn't help you.
September 19, 2007 at 02:12 AM
Thanks for posting this amazing video. It made me cry, but in a good way :) The afghans looks so good(!!!), you have all done a really great job!
Thank you, Laura, you're an amazing woman!! :)
September 19, 2007 at 06:05 AM
I was thinking of you on Saturday and wondering how it was going. You guys pieced together some beautiful afghans!

Thank you so very much for sharing the video with us. I see you were being videod yourself, could you share the link with the news station that did the story. I was thinking of you all day Saturday, and so envious of all that could be there. I would so be willing to join an afghan for you. Maybe we could work something out that I could get enough squares to do so, from you. Thank you again for getting us all going on this and doing such a wonderful job. I know it took a lot of your time and effort. By the way how many showed up, and how many did you all get done????????

I spoke to my local yarn shop. If you can send me enough to make three we will have a charity night and put them together for you. Let me know how much it is to send and I will put that amount into paypal for you.

September 19, 2007 at 01:48 PM

September 19, 2007 at 04:58 PM
Absolutely amazing. I might've teared up a little!
September 19, 2007 at 07:34 PM
That's an amazing video, Laura. It was fantastic to meet you in Wichita on Sunday and be able to put a face with a name. Please send me the squares for a blanket so Mom and I can sew one up for you since we weren't able to make the seaming party. Email if you need my address.

Wow. Wow. Thank you so much. If I can help with seaming more, please let me know. Somehow there has to be a way to get squares to TX. Thank you for the beautiful, beautiful video, and all your amazing work and love.
