New Helping Hands, Afghans for Faith Mission

Easter Log Cabin AfghanDoesn't this afghan look like a big Easter Egg! Lovely Spring Colors. This log cabin style afghan was crocheted by Joanie B in Ohio. Joanie is our newest pair of helping hands. Welcome Joanie, we're thrilled to have you join us and hope to see you around The Bridge often. Joanie is a friend of our friend Cindy whom I know you'll remember when I say Cindy and Rebeccah...the mother daughter team! Thank You Joanie for joining us, and Thank You Cindy for spreading the word and recruiting another pair of helping hands.

Have had various people checking/testing this with a variety of computers, computer systems, and browsers and they report all is fine.**

  1. These ghans are lovely!! They remind me of how comforting a ghan was when I was sick, or sad or just learning to stand on my big-girl feet. They look like they would be so warm and soothing, like a cup of hot tea on a rainy day. They remind me of why I learned to crochet - one should never underestimate the importance of something beautiful, made with love to help get us through rough times.

  2. so nicely said psmflowerlady, couldn't agree more with ya

  3. testing comments in 2nd browser

  4. Crocheted log cabins are cool!

  5. Yet another lovely ghan. You are not only keeping bodies warm, but keeping smiles on faces that are terribly in need of a smile!

    Thannks Foxeni and Sandie for the visit and the comments, appreciate it. Another testing of the comment area from a different computer.

  7. Those are really pretty. I wish I had that kind of talent.

  8. Beautiful work! Not having a problem getting in here Sandy.

  9. Thanks Bunny for the visit, and for the comment checking things out for me, both are appreciated.

  10. The afghans are lovely! Looks like a great way to use up leftover yarn. I think the comment malfunction must have gone somewhere else. It seems to be working okay now.

  11. The Harvest Hill for the nice comment. Appreciate too everyone checking out the comment section. I have one person still that says she's unable to comment; but I'm out of ideas as to why. Thus far she is the only person who's indicated they can't leave comments. Must be at her end,though I'd like to help her with the issue. She'd like to participate in the upcoming contest I think. I had her clear her cache which several people suggested, and reboot. I had her try and leave a comment on one of my other blogs, she did so successfully on Sandy's Space. As you know settings cross the board when you have multiple blogs, so if she can leave a comment there...why would she not be able to here?

  12. These are lovely! I have yet to do a log cabin, but it's in my ever-growing list of patterns! Very nice work, Joanie B.!

  13. Color, color and more color! What a beautiful way to brighten someone's day and warm them up all at the same time! Great work!

  14. Thanks Sally, appreciate the visit and comment. Right you are about the lovely work!

  15. These are so cool. I'm going to have to try one of these sometime.

  16. Thanks Yvonne, I thought they were 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?
