Donating Day at The Beach Afghan

Day at the BeachAnother afghan designed and assembled from your donated squares. Titled this one, Day at the Beach. It has squares from our good friend Liz. I used several rows of white (winterwhite) to enlarge each square, then added several more rows once it was all crocheted together. I found aqua and the variegated in my stash and was pleased they worked so well. Just had enough too, of the variegated to make the 2 rows be the final edge.

Homeless Families Foundation is the recipient of the afghans made from your donated squares. These afghans are part of the Welcome Home Package given to all those families moving into permanent housing and leaving the shelter. We hope they provide not only physical warmth, but hope and encouragement for their futures.

By the time you read this scheduled post, we'll be over half way through the month of April...and while Spring comes for a few days at a time, we're still having frost here in Central Ohio. Warm items are still needed. Please keep your yarn close at hand, and remember we knit and crochet and donate all year long. That way, we're able to stock pile for all those living outdoors and those in the shelters to be ready when the nicer weather turns not so nice.

**This should have posted a couple of days ago, but as mentioned in the last several blog post...blogger has been changing formats and as a result things like the scheduled post hasn't been working. This is extremely frustrating to me. I always have things lined up for a couple of weeks to post at 8 am each morning. Obviously, that's not been happening. My apologies. I've left comments for blogger/google...and see TONS of other bloggers have experienced the same thing. I've not had the ability (being out of town) to post things manually, and am hopeful things will get fixed soon.**

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!

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?
