Heartfelt thanks...
Created By: Robin Comfort

When I was very young a woman I called granma Woody taught my needle-arts: crocheting and cross-stitching. I have done various projects throughout the years. I had put down my crocheting hooks in favor of X-stitching for many years.



I learned of a young Marine Corps officer, a 2005 graduate of the US Naval Academy had gone to Iraq and within a very short time had been horribly wounded by an IED. I came to learn of him through a mutual friend. For sometime prior to hearing of him I had been feeling the need to create an afghan out of appreciation and thanks. Upon hearing of him, I started the first of many (I hope) afghans to help our young wounded service men and women have a little of home with them as they recover.



My own son (LCpl, USMC) is preparing for his own first deployment. His afghan is almost finished, to await his return.



I think what I learned was the peace I gained from creating this simple yet heartfelt afghan.
