Bright Desert Afghan

Bright Desert when it was designed.  The picture is a bit light.  Several types of squares here from several different pairs of helping hands.   Most are squares worked in the round, but the bright blues are squares worked side to side.  I love the variety you get with different kinds of squares, different textures, and size sometimes too.

  Thank you Sarah S!  Bright Desert turned out GREAT!  So, this is the after, after Sarah worked her magic with edging and joining.  And as you can see pictures taken in different light always makes the colors vary.
Wanted to take a couple so you could see it from a different angle.  Colors in the desert are ever changing, based on the light and the time of day, this afghan really brings that thought home to me.  Some think there's no color in the desert, but I've seen lots of variances from our camping and hiking days in the desert.......when we were younger.

Beautiful job Sarah, we truly appreciate you're helping hands!  Keep up the good work.  The folks that receive this ghan are going to be thrilled.

*be sure and pop back in for the other portion of Sarah's donation

Go Fish, Crocheted Donations

Thank you Anne G for this thoughtful donation of crocheted cotton washcloths and always needed poncho's.  We've had a much colder and wetter June here in Ohio than is normal so the poncho's truly are needed.  LOVE the nice selection of colors and sizes you made for the washcloths, and those cute cute fish........have never seen them before.  Can you share the pattern you used for them?

Please keep up the good work, and know how much your donations are appreciated.

Priceless Therapy

LOL.........truly!  I nodded and smiled when I spotted this cute and sooooooooooo very true comic.  How bout you?  We hear all the time how good knitting and crocheting is for stress reduction, for keeping our minds active etc.  This just seemed perfect.

Can you relate?  I know I can.  As I think of all the time I spent at my Mothers bedside during her long 7 week hospital stay prior to her passing, I think without yarn in hand I would have lost it.  It truly was beneficial to me, soothing for me, and soothing for her.  She knew I was there, she didn't feel she had to talk, she could rest, but we could just be together.  It gave me something to focus on, to help me stay rational.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
