Thank you RickDannenberg@gateway.net 

Hello ladies!  I have been participating in a square exchange (group 1), and have been thoroughly enjoying myself!  The ladies in the group are wonderful, and I have had a great time giving and receiving the squares!  I was in "Michael's" the other day, and they had a sample afghan square for a baby blanket.  It was for a class they were offering, and would not give me a copy of the pattern - so I came home and made one up myself.  I'm sending it on to you to share with everyone because it is so unique!  I hope you like it. Sincerely, Angel Dannenberg
