I would like to warmly welcome Tonya to this space:
When Nicole spoke of continuing to provide Matt and Ari with homemade creations via The Wellness Tree, I felt a nudge. The nudge was to make a special knit quilt for Ari; a quilt made of love in each stitch; a quilt where anyone who wished could contribute a square without spending too much time; a quilt that Ari could have forever knowing that it was lovingly stitched by a group of women that prayed for and supported his Mom and continued that love and support towards he and his father after she passed on.
What I am proposing is that anyone who would like could knit or crochet a six inch square. It would be wonderful it could be made of natural fibers - such as wool or organic cotton, but all squares are welcome.One suggestion for knitting the square is to use size six needles and worsted weight yarn, the cast on is 31 stitches. If any of you have the Spring issue of Living Crafts, there is a wonderful piece showcasing many different patterns.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will email you back my mailing address. The deadline is June 15th for the squares. I will then be sewing them all together and mailing back to Nicole to ship to Matt and Ari when she feels is an appropriate time.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity
to do this one small thing for this beautiful family.
Warm wishes, Tonya
