If You Have Too Much Time On Your Hands... can come over to my house and dust.
There are some people who are truly taking to our charity knitting/crocheting group at work.
I am so overwhelmed I am almost speechless.
Look at some of the beautiful projects people have been making on their own:

More squares, bringing our count to about 200:

This full-sized afghan was made by a woman who just couldn't stop crocheting. Say it with me, "You go, girl!"

These three lap-sized blankets were made by another woman and they are gorgeous. Just right to cover the lap of someone sitting in a wheelchair:

This quilt was made by the mother of one of the women in our group. She is also working on a full-sized afghan. And can you believe she had the nerve to apologize for not having the colors really match in this quilt? Is she nuts? I think so. It's all I can do to not take it home for myself. And wait, get this, she made it from scraps she had sitting around:

Now I just need to get on the stick and contact the agency to whom we are gifting these so it is not a HUGE, yet unexpected, surprise!

LOVE the afghans. I especially like the black squares as the unifying theme. Keep up the good work.
