Rose Garden is Completed

Rose Garden has been completed. It's still damp in above picture, as it's being blocked here after it was laundered. Such variety in this ghan. Knitted squares and rectangles, crocheted squares and rectangles. Sizes variety alot too from 5 inches or thereabouts at the small end up to around 12 inches. As this afghan for Faith Mission progessed I made a few changes from the previous design and in the works picture Here. Needed to make some changes due to size and fit. I think the previous picture shows the color better. You know how light seems to change the colors in pictures.

Donations that made this ghan possible come from Karen V, Joy, RoseMarie, and Yvonne. There were others, nameless others who donated squares from a long ago defunct group. Additionally, the yarn I used for edging and the border are left over from the yarn my DD, Christine used to make her Vacation ghan for our homeless and battered ladies at Faith Mission.

Thank you all for making this possible. All your efforts are appreciated.
Here's a close up of the border. I did not use black, though the picture makes it look like I did on the edge of the ghan or the edges of the squares, it was very dark forest green; and the scallops are dusty rose.

Work continues on your squares, so stay turned for additional design photo's and finished afghans.

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?
