Welcome Home and Merry Christmas

 This Christmas Time Afghan is, I think a very special Welcome Home Gift for one of our families at Homeless Families Foundation.  These red and green squares were crocheted (Filet Crochet) by our very good friend, AnneMarie in New York.  Each row has a different shape. The 5 shapes are: Tree, Bell, Candy Cane, Santa Sleigh, and Wreath, 30 squares in all.  I crocheted them together with white and added 4 rows of sc followed by a row of sc in red and then dark green for a nice wide border.

Thank you AnneMarie for your awesome squares, they were fun to put together.

**Speaking of squares, as you know I've asked that you all hold mailing your squares until I call for them again; as I need to get more ghans assembled and make room.  However, let's share some square love.  February is the month of love, Valentine's Day and all.  It's been awhile since we've sent afghans to our friends at Pine Street Inn(see badge in right sidebar).  Their mission is like our own, housing those folks in need.  Squares you wish to make and mail during the month of February will be set aside, not for me to assemble; but for a mass mailing of squares to our friends at Pine Street Inn.  Please only mail during that month.  I still have plenty here to put together for Homeless Families Foundation and will not need additional squares for some time.**

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?
