Cozy up under a thick, warm blanket of Christmas trees! This 69-1/2" x 47" afghan is hand-crocheted from worsted-weight, washable acrylic yarn.

Wonderful news for Santa's Sleigh!

An anonymous MMC member bought and paid for this afghan, then immediately re-donated it to MMC. So $89 has already gone to Santa's Sleigh, thanks to this generous donor, and the afghan is still available for purchase---meaning that if any of you buy this afghan before the deadline, Santa's Sleigh will receive another $89.

:???:Thank you and Heaven's blessings, Anonymous!:???:

More good news for Santa's Sleigh!

Yet another anonymous MMC member has paid for the afghan and re-donated it to MMC. (This brings a whole new dimension to re-gifting!) Our second buyer/donor rounded up the donation to $100---so Santa's Sleigh has now received $200* from anonymous buyer/donors, and the afghan is still available for sale.

:transform:A big thank-you to both anonymous "angels"!:transform:

*I added $11 to the original buyer/donor's contribution to make it a round $100.

This is exciting and gratifying. Thank you, Merry Carey, for such a wonderful contribution to this year's effort. It is fun to see it involving so many people.

Since this event is over, I personally think that things such as this is wonderful idea and also lots of fun. Just like for example, when we did the auction sometime back, I thought it was fun to place a bid and to also keep watch on the most current bids... I would like/ hope to see something like that again in the future (with all kinds of things), and all the proceeds could then help to go to Santa's Sleigh!

I'm sorry, but no. When the sale closed, one of our donors wished to have it shipped anonymously to a friend. The donor paid for the postage, and the afghan is on its way to its new home.
