Ta Dah...Autumn is Finished

Autumn AfghanTADAH! Got another afghan done for our folks at Faith Mission. This was both fun and tedious to assemble. Fun because it required lots of creative...hum, wonder what this looks like there, and does this fit better here or there. Lots of that. Should have seen me crawling around on the floor flipping squares and rectangles here and there. lol Tedious because there were so many sizes to work with it was truly piecemeal. Looks a little bunchy here, this is before it was laundered and blocked. That always smooth things out (provided you don't have too much bunching). I'm happy with the results, it's big, heavy and very warm. Most of the squares are crocheted, but the two largest squares that DD donated were knitted. The dark sage green edging and joining the pieces was also from DD, a gift from last Christmas. I think from memory the lacy yellow square might be from Sandie, RoseMarie the rectangles, Liz made the multi-colored squares, and there's a few of mine thrown in where I needed a filler.

Thank you ladies for helping me help warm the homeless. You ALL ROCK!

  3. Oh I just love how this turned out. What a pretty afghan it made. One I'd be happy to have in my own home. If my memory serves, that yellow square might have been made by my daughter. Nice job, Sandy, as always.

  4. Thanks ladies, I was real pleased with this one too. Sandie, I know the yellow one came from you, I remember it and have it in a photo of one of your misc deliveries...so it probably your daughter's square. Be sure and let her know to have a look see.

  5. This ghan makes me think of leaves and pumpkins and the gathering around the table at Thanksgiving. I hope it brings those same feelings of hope and thanks to someone. It is hard to be thankful when your life is not on an even keel and you struggle for the basic necessities, but with help from kind folks like Sandy, maybe their plight can be made better and they can find a bit of good.

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?
