SHE SENT 1,276 SQUARES AND EARNED 2,392 TOTAL POINTS
I am thrilled to have won the SmoothFox - Online Angels Charity Contest. I didn't learn to crochet until I was 30. After making everyone I knew blankets I found a charity to send blankets to and also gave some to the church for their fund raiser. I stopped crocheting for several years. Having a break between careers I decided to pick up my crochet hook again. That's when I stumbled onto this blog and became totally "hooked" on Donna's patterns. Crocheting for Online Angels really helped me in between jobs. I'm so glad I could give back.
So, thank you Donna for your beautiful patterns that keep me crocheting and Mary for your great Charity Organization!
$100.00 WINNING TEAM -
THREE STRANDS TOGETHER
THEY SENT IN 376 SQUARES AND EARNED 1,062 TOTAL POINTS
Charity drives have always been part of our crafting and we’ve been donating hand-made hats, scarves and mittens to our local community for a couple of years now. As a family, we also make a large food donation to an area food bank and were able to do that a number of times last year. The Smooth Fox Charity Squares drive seemed like the perfect way to continue giving back our time and talents to a very worthy cause. We are proud to have been named the Team Winners.

SHARON BUSCHETTE - $25.00 GIFT CARD
My mom taught me the basics of crochet when I was a teenager. Over the years I picked it up and put it down to one degree or another, but about 3 years ago, I picked it up again and it suddenly became a passion for me. My favorite thing to make is afghans, and I usually have a couple of those on the hook at any one time. Although I occasionally make something for a family member, nearly everything I make gets donated to the local county hospital - from there it goes to the homeless, people in need, shelters for abused women, or wherever they think it will be of most use. The thing I am most grateful for regarding crochet though is that it has given me a closer relationship with my mom - we go yarn shopping together all the time and can sit and talk about about projects and patterns for hours at a time. Crocheting has really been a blessing in my life.

My name is Enjoli. I currently reside in St Petersburg, FL. I am a wife and a mother to two wonderful, crazy kids. I learned to crochet when I was in High School. I’ve crocheted on and off ever since but just recently got back into crocheting with a vengeance. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I have a lot of free time on my hands and have turned to crocheting as a therapeutic hobby. In my search for new patterns to try, I came across Donna’s blog and saw that she was hosting a Squares for Charity drive. I have always thought about doing it but didn’t know how to get the information, so finding this was a wonderful discovery. Each square I have made, I made with love. I hope whomever was blessed to receive the blanket built with some of my squares likes them as much as I enjoyed making them. I look forward to doing future Squares for Charity
