Comforting Afghans for Young Childeren

 Two crocheted afghans suitable for a little girl to hug and feel comforted.  These 2 afghans are made from a variety of squares (couple of sizes) and are donated to us through Charity Crochet Exchange.  Several people were involved in making the squares: Andrea W, Carol Bohmbach, Julie Y, Karin O, Rhonda M, and Ryan D from the state of California.  I'm not certain which person assembled the squares but I can say what a nice job they did.  Thank you all for your support, I know these afghans will be cherished by the little ones who receive them.

 AND 3 more.  The blue and the green one will be nice for a little boyI think the one on the right could go either way if it's a really young child, otherwise probably more girlie.  All very nice.  Would love one of you folks who crocheted squares, or assembled, or mailed to make contact with me.  Please leave comment with email addy here on the blog and or email me at sandycrochet@gmail.com.  These afghans will be used for our project, "Welcome Home."

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?
