Donating Afghans for Project Welcome Home

Please join me in once again saying thank you for your on going support, your thoughtfulness, and your skillful hands to our good friend AnneMarie from New York. This awesome ripple will be well received by someone as they transition from shelter living to their own place. The picture makes it look gray, but it's really more of a green. Not sure wade shade it would be called. This would work as a lapghan for an adult, male or female and or child to totally cover up in.
But, wait........There's more. I love the colors and texture in this 2nd afghan. Again, sized and suitable as above for adults, teens, or children. So nicely done. AnneMarie...your ROCK!
And no.........she didn't stop there! LOOK at this pretty Lilac/Lavender Afghan. To see it's message, please click to enlarge. This is larger then above afghans and will make a nice adult/teen afghan for a female and or a family afghan.

Anne Marie, please keep up the good work, we all truly appreciate 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?
