The Power of One

Our good friend Sandie in Florida knows someone who knows someone. The friend of a friend passed away and left this array of squares and circles in her closet. I say the power of one, because one person told one person, and that one person told Sandie in Florida and that one person packed these up and shipped them me here in Ohio. Now as you can see the array of sizes, (some just beginnings of squares) is pretty wide. And they aren't the size you all make and send; but at some point I'll play around with these or see a spot in another ghan that needs a little something and put them to use.

Thank you Sandie's friend of a friend.

  1. Sandy---Looks like quite a challenge to put all those pieces together, but you always do such a great job with the squares. I agree, the power of one is amazing. Great post!

  2. Very nice of Sandie;s friend of a friend. And as Sue said you will definitely find a way to work them in to an afghan.

  3. Oh such pretty squares. Sandy, I am sure you will find a good way to make an afghan out of them.

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?
