Retro Afghan for Homeless Families Foundation

 Some of you might have already seen this awesome afghan Tristi assembled for us from donated squares.  Posted it on facebook the day she passed it back to me; but also wanted to get it here in que and get it tabulated.  We named this one Retro because it reminds me of the kitchens back in the 50's.

The ghans change so much from original design to completion.  Edges, colors, joins...make such a difference.

Here it was before

Awesome job, and I so very much appreciate the extra pair of helping hands with assembling aghans.  ...Seems like a perfect segway into........

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?
