Could you please tell me what the charity for the Pine Ridge Reservation is all about?  It sounds interesting, and like something I might want to do as well.  And I love how the black/white/and red yarn works together!

Thanks! Smiley

People knit or crochet afghan squares and send them to Pam, who seams them together and sends the finished afghan to Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota (one of the poorest reservations in the US).
(you can find her address in the Ravelry group or the yahoo group)

Some of the guidelines for the squares:
  • Any color can be used, except all black (makes seaming difficult) or all white (looks dirty quickly)
  • Any patterns can be used - solid patterns without many holes are better
  • Any fiber can be used - warmer is better
  • If using wool, superwash is preferred (because it doesn't felt), and squares must be marked in case of allergies
  • Any size square can be made; 6" and 12" are preferred
  • Leave a 4-6" tail and don't weave in any of your ends Grin
  • If crocheting in the round, don't use a magic circle/magic ring

Here's a recent finished afghan:

(picture is from the ravelry group - this blanket has some of the squares I've made! Cheesy)

I had some left over Riley Blake strawberry fabrics left over from a strawberry swap I did on another platform. My partner from that swap and I decided to do a personal Christmas swap. One of the items we discussed was a mug rug.

I decided to start with the paper pieced "Ugly Christmas Sweater Block pattern" by Kerry Goulder (Kid Giddy), which is available on Etsy.  
I did a simple 9 square alternating the Riley Blake fabrics on the back.

After just stitching around the sweater for quilting, I decided I wanted to add a side to my mug rug. So, I quickly stitched up alternating green and red, and sandwiched it together with the strawberry fabric. Well, I knew I was going to have a raw edge when I sewed them together, so I created a green strip and sewed it over my seams, then added my binding!
It measures 10 5" by 6".

I have received two ATCs in the mail, yay!

The first is from craftylittlemonkey.  It was a "tbd" and she went with my Halloween theme.  The kitty has a little mask and it's flocked... oooh, tactile!  She also sent a ton of extras, which you may be seeing on future ATCs Wink  Thank you, craftylittlemonkey!

The next ATC is from ChameleonHound.  It was another "tbd" and she went with my Halloween toads theme.  The toad on this is also tactile, although I don't know what it is made from.  The purple hat is shiny in person.  She also sent extras including plastic ATC sleeves which are much appreciated.  I'm wondering if the sleeves my husband uses for the playing cards for his fancy games will work on these... hm...  Thank you, ChameleonHound!
