I changed my heading picture to one of my friendship afghan. It has a little story to go with it. Seven years ago my DH and I left our hometown of Sarnia, Ontario to move to Prince Edward Island. I had heard about friendship quilts, where friends exchange quilt squares. My friend knits and I crochet. I figured we could do the same thing and have a lasting memento of our friendship.
So, from January 2003 - December 2003 each month I crocheted two identical squares, while my friend knitted two identical squares. We each kept one square and mailed the other. By the end of the year we each had 24 squares - 12 knitted and 12 crocheted. It was a little tricky piecing it together because the squares were not all the same size. Some were not even square. But I did manage to get it together.
My friendship afghan is one of my most prized possessions. Every time I snuggle under it or straighten it over the back of my couch, I think of Nancy and how much her friendship means to me.
