Another Afghan for Project Welcome Home

 Real happy with the end result of this afghan, Sandbox for our project Welcome Home.  Squares from lots of folks, can you find yours in the picture?  Off the top of my head, I know quite a few are from my high school friend, Joy...but there's others as well.  Here it is, laid out drying and being blocked a bit.  (The next time squares will be collected is during the up coming month of November.  Please only send squares that measure 8 x 8 during the specific months I highlight them.  It gives me the ability to catch up a bit and not be over whelmed with squares that need to be stored.  Also, please remember squares must be made from acrylic or washable wool only.  No novelty yarn, or wool, or cotton, or other fibers.  Please avoid white, off-white, beige etc.)

** Reminding everyone to check the tabs across the top of the blog for the items you're making.  Lots of details can be found, as well as patterns you might like to use**

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?
