Mint Chocolate Chip Bonus!

 These wonderful squares were recently donated by our good friend AnneMarie, you might remember seeing them HERE.  I laid these out, and found a good amount of various shades of brown in my stash.  Think edging in the dark brown to add a couple of inches, then doing a border with several shades of brown might be just the ticket.  Sherry K and I got to meet face to face...that's the bonus.  We had a wonderful visit over a cup of coffee and tea.  I took these squares and some yarn; as Sherry has offered to help me by assembling an afghan.   She may lay it out and it may speak differently to her, you know afghans and yarn have a way communicating, lol.  It'll be fun to see what Sherry does in terms of pulling this all together.  Have fun, Sherry and thanks for the help.

I wish I had thought to take my camera with me so you could see us enjoying each others company.  Maybe next time I'll to remember to do that.  We'll be getting together again so she can pass along the afghan to me, and so we can enjoy another visit.  We're also thinking about planning a day in the park with some other helping hands to work on things together.  Stay tuned....when the weather turns to spring again that is.

The other cool thing here is, AnneMarie and Sherry have chatted often on line and so, once again we have friendship being formed, and team work!

Thank you Sherry for your offer of help, and I look forward to our next venture.  And, I had initially thought minty for the name of this ghan, but didn't like the sound of that, then typed chocolate chip, and Sherry came up with Mint Chocolate Chip....Perfect!

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?
