We are nearly there! I had set a goal to complete 3100 blocks-the number of American military deaths at the onset of this undertaking. I need about 100 more blocks to finish my tour of duty.

If you're cleaning the house and decorating for the holidays and come across a stash of blocks - finished or not, send them in!! My focus for 2011 will be finding venues, and maybe someone to sponsor the exhibit permanently. Any ideas on those fronts are welcome.

Thank you to everyone who has helped with the construction and installation of the project as it has grown these past few years. This project has totally overwhelmed me at times, and I couldn't have slogged through without your help and encouragement.

100 left? WOOT!
I don't have any left at my house to send you. But I'll send a shout out to MCQ friends to remind them!
I'm so proud of you Carn. It was a huge project, and you did it! It's a beautiful memorial to all those lives lost.
I know you don't want symbols, but I would love to do one last one where the french knots spell out numerically how many servicemen have died as of the day of the end of the project, and have the amount of french knots represent the current ratio of iraqi deaths per US troop.
I don't even know what those numbers are.
