Afghan from Afghanistan...

This is my cozy chair. This top white blanket is an Afghan that my cousin Jonna made for me while she was serving our country in Afghanistan. You wouldn't think something so comforting could be made in a war zone.. but there it is. I already felt like Jonna and all our servicemen and women had done something truly wonderful for me.. so I didn't need this blanket, but I sure LOVE IT. And, I will treasure it. Thank you Jonna. Thank you for the blanket and thank you for your service. I'm very touched and grateful for both gifts.

Beautiful work, I bet it was relaxing for her to put her mind into the blanket after hours of horrid war everyday.

Oh! I'm so glad you like it! it looks perfect on your chair! I'm glad it matches, I was a teeny bit worried about whether you'd like it or not:) glad it works!:) It's a thank you, Tiff, for all your support. It means a lot, your prayers and letters and little things. It's always made me a bit emotional. It was a serious pleasure to make it. It was a very nice distraction from the reality of things there. It's also proof that there are good things happening there haha. I have this joke; when I was at the bazarre the Afghan men would try to tell me things by saying, "here, this, made by woman in afghanistan." So, you have your very own blanket:) 'made by woman in Afghanistan' haha.
