“Talent is always conscious of its own abundance, and does not object to sharing.” _Unknown

GSOL in Aulander,N.C. met recently and shared some photos with us to share with you. I am always very proud of all the work, and time shared, to get all of the blankets, hats, and scarves together. If you look closely, you may be able to pick out some granny squares that were donated by our long distance volunteers and stitched together with many others.

Great team work, Everyone!



.Until next time,

Be happy, healthy, and blessed!




Love Smiles on Us

“Small acts, multiplied by millions of people, transform world.” _ John Holms


Check out the lovely items donated to GSOL to help others in need. What a blessing each of you are!


“Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much!” _Helen Keller

“Granny Squares of Love: Roanoke Rapids Chapter did continue on without me this month with the help of my co-leader, Margaret Miles, who is a awesome organizer/whip stitcher and volunteer. My phone went dead for her to take pics. So, Leslie Harder stepped up to the plate and helped us out this month with these and sent them via email to me. Other volunteers also stepped up to help teach crocheting to those to came to learn and these items were donated this month to support the groups efforts to help our community….I feel very blessed to be a part of this group that has help from all ends.

I was unable to go to meeting because the middle schools had it’s banquet and ceremony for children that made the scholars list and my daughter was one of the many! A special night for us.” _Sherry Casey 

Until next time,

Be happy, healthy, and blessed!

Ahoskie GSOL in Action

“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.” _Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

GSOL in Ahoskie, N.C. had their monthly meeting and had a fabulous time whip stitching, crocheting, chatting, exchanging finished blankets for more granny squares and yarn. Once you see the photos of their meeting, I think you will agree they give their best and are busy about helping others.

“Community is a sign that love is possible in a materialistic world where people so often either ignore or fight each other. It is a sign that we don’t need a lot of money to be happy–in fact, the opposite.” _ Jean Vanier

Did you see any of the squares that you donated? They look really nice all put together, don’t you think?

You are all simply AWESOME!  Thanks again, Ladies!

Until next time,

Be happy, healthy and blessed!


A Single Leaf Provides No Shade

The teamwork that comes to us from so many directions is awesome!  We accomplish more because our long distance volunteers lend a hand. We so appreciate you!

GSOL in Jackson, N.C. this past Tuesday and had a nice turn out. We even had a couple visitors! We worked on current projects, demonstrated the picot stitch, picked up more granny squares and yarn to make more blankets to turn in next month.



The nice thing about teamwork is that you always have others on your side. ~Margaret Carty

I am so grateful to have so many on our side. Thank you again!

Until next time,

Be happy, healthy and blessed!


Comforting Others Everywhere We Go

GSOL in Jackson, N.C. made it’s first delivery of blankets to serve as a source of comfort to children who are in foster care. Often, the children arrive in foster care with nothing, or very little, to call their own. We made them in various sizes. Some are suitable for babies, some for young children, and others are large enough for a teenager to wrap up in while reading a book or watching TV. The blanket is their own to keep always. Each made with loving hands and hearts that care. Many were made with the donated squares from our long distance volunteers. Together we make a beautiful difference in the lives of others.

I also want to share with you our recent gifts that arrived in the Post office to help speed the process of helping others in need:
