A beautiful gift of love and time…

is here.  It’s from CJ, one of my very early inspirations when I was thinking about beginning a blog.  And now, she’s inspiring me all over again, with her wonderful and creative way of reaching out across our nation and the world to spread Down syndrome awareness.

What am I talking about?

It’s a T-21 Afghan.  Not THE T-21 Afghan, which I’m sure will find it’s way to us soon enough, but our very own version of the afghan, which we have to keep.

Go here to join the Traveling Afghan project.

Go here to see where it’s been, and where it’s going.

And I leave you with this:  one little boy, loving the love.

  1. Gosh, Jen…Avery is so cute and so grow(ing) up! With a sweet smile to go with his big boy looks. The afghan is lovely, of course…looking forward to welcoming THE afghan to hot, humid Miami (we’ll have to crank the AC)!

  2. What an adorable picture! I am adding it to his Afghan page on the Project blog! I am so glad he likes it! What a handsome little man!

  3. He’s such a love. And the blanket goes with the couch in the background (bonus!). Do update, how are the chicks and the spring plantings?

  4. Love the love…….This is such an inspiring project and we are excited to know that it will make it’s way to our little Hamlet!!!!

    I’m so glad you were inspired to blog my dear, as I find such comfort in your words.

    Peace and love, TM

  5. I can’t wait for THE T21 afghan to hit Illinois. It’s supposed to be soon. I am looking forward to seeing Lily all snuggled up in it!

    And Lianna…there’s still time to sign up. There are still a few states that aren’t part of the journey.

  6. Beautiful boy! Beautiful blanket!!! He is so grown up looking! Keep the pictures coming. We are anxiously awaiting our very own blanket as well as THE blanket :)!!!

  7. Wow. When did he get to be so grown up looking?? I see these changes in my Nik, too, and it takes my breath away. The love is so evident on that sweet face, too! xo
