Squares, Squares, Can You Count Them?

Connections are made in so many ways. This is certainly the case with this group of 70 crocheted squares. A group of ladies involved in about 10 community, charity type projects through work got together and made these squares. These ladies: Anne, Carol, Pat, and Kris have worked together on bake sales, walk-a-thons and many interesting and worthwhile projects throughout the course of the year. They found a program on line to make squares to be joined into afghans for those in need. Through time it was found that program involved costly shipping fees, as the squares were to be sent all the way to Africa. Looking for a project closer to home they began searching once again on line and through several aborted efforts found The Slipper Project on The Lion Brand site. Once they contacted Joyce at The Slipper Project, she suggested our Bridge and Beyond. Joyce and I have connected through The Hive and our quest for charity knitting and crocheting. So, many thanks to Anne, Carol, Pat, and Kris for these lovely fun and cheery colored crocheted squares, and Joyce for her referral to us, and to The Hive for connecting Joyce and I.

I'm hopeful we'll continue to see Anne, Carol, Pat, and Kris among our helping hands.

Many thanks for the thoughtful donation, sure glad you found us.

  2. As I look at this group of squares believe I've used a good number of them so far. And just yesterday was reviewing a group to design some more. Nicely made too.

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?
