Wow, it looks amazing.

Does anyone know if they are collecting afghan squares for this, as they did for the Virginia Tech one?  A nearby craft store collected them and made them into blankets for the wounded, and the victim's families.

I am a student at NIU and I think I can safely speak for all of us when I say that this has been the most horrific and shocking experience we have ever gone through. On a positive note, there has been so much support from people allover the world as we struggle through this nightmare which is greatly appreciated. Your tribute is beautiful and thoughtful. Thank you.  Cry

I have many crochet and plastic canvas booklets/leaflets from the 70's, 80's, and 90's that I am interested in trading for a variety of items. PM me if you would like a list of what I have.

I haven't heard anything, but I think that's a great idea. The Yarn Exchange is in DeKalb, I wonder if they might do something like that?

I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and many people in our area are connected to NIU in different ways.  My prayers are with you all as you return to campus this week.   

You did a very good job with this needlework.

Nicely done! 

I work at NIU.  On my drive home tonight, I was thinking about how I could use my craftiness to comfort people.  I'm not sure yet, but I like that you took this to something crafty. 

Thinking of you and all my fellow Huskies.

Forward, together forward.

edit: If you hear of anything, please let me know.

Here's the link to the Virginia Tech afgan project, in case if anyone wanted to see what they did http://mosaicyarnshop.blogspot.com/2007/04/mosaic-yarn-shop-is-asking-that-all.html   To see some of the afgans, click on the 2007 link on the right, and scroll down about 2/3 of the way (You're aiming for July).
