Mother Earth Afghan Donated

Just realized, I never got this photo loaded for you of the completed and already donated Mother Earth Afghan. This was nicely sized for a family afghan. With both the size and the colors it is suitable for a family headed either by a male or a female. All these squares were donated by our friend, Joy; my former high school classmate. I was very pleased with the way this turned out. Not sure how I missed getting it posted for you all to enjoy.

2012 Donations:

Misc Items are not counted individually (such as personal care items, headbands, gators, yarn, wrist warmers/fingerless gloves, facemasks, neck warmers, t-shirts etc)

Hard to believe we're about half way through the month of April already. Time sure does fly. Remember April is cotton washcloth month. Cotton cloths are needed for men and women and are distributed to 3 different family shelters, as well as the men and women living under the bridges. Please keep your hooks and knitted needles flying. Please make all cotton cloths sized for adults. Please also make sure your cotton cloths are in fact, cotton. Have had a few that are acrylic yarn which really doesn't work for showers and baths. Thank You.

**A few days ago I mentioned I had several fun numbers/milestones to report. The first was our hitting post #700...woot woot. Another fun number, have you noticed how many followers we have? We've broken 200. Love to see that number grow. If you're a blogger and come visiting, please do follow us. If you have friends who knit or crochet, or friends who give of themselves in various ministries to aid others, please ask them to follow us as well.**

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?
