I may not be great at math, but at the current rate, the afghan will be traveling for a good five years. I have not decided whether I will cut the journey off at this point or continue it. This project has a way of taking things in its own direction on its own time.
For now, the afghan is headed from North Carolina to Ohio. It will bum around Ohio for a few weeks and then head to Maryland, where we have four families signed up. At that point, I will likely be sending it over to Germany for the next few months.
I know everyone is anxious to get it and I promise it will make its way to each and every family who wants their turn with the afghan, it's just going to take some time. A lot of time!
I am cranking out afghans as quickly as I can. I have five sitting on my kitchen table, waiting to be mailed off. I have one in my car, already boxed up and addressed. I just have to make it to the post office to send them all on their way.
My goal is to reach fifty by the time March rolls around. March 1, 2010 is the one year anniversary of the beginning of The T21 Traveling Afghan Project. One entire year. I am simply amazed!
I am excited to see what the next year holds in store for our own project.
I get a lot of comments about how amazing the project is and how many people it has touched.
I want to know more. Please leave me a comment or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) letting me know WHY you think this project is significant or HOW it touched you or your family.
