Afghans for Homeless Families Foundation

 Thank you Lori R.  What an awesome donation.  2 Crocheted afghans, bright and cherry.  The blue and yellow will surely make a little boy feel comforted and the orange and green will bring a smile to any little girl.  These are sized well to be ghans for children, and or lapghan size for teens.  Beautiful work Lori.  I love all the texture in the orange and green one.  Be sure and click to enlarge both photo's folks so you can see what I'm talking about.  And remember you can always click any picture here on the blog to see something better. 
In addition to the two afghans, Lori has crocheted and donated 4 cotton wash cloths.

Thank you Lori for your thoughtful donation, and continued support.  We sure appreciate you.

Today is the last day of March...wow, where does time go?  Tomorrow will be April and our focus for April is scarves.  Please remember we do not make scarves for infants and toddlers.  Please check details of size so the donations meet our need.  In addition to focusing on scarves during the month of April, I like to continue focusing on afghans and quilts.  We've not yet received any quilts, but am hopeful we will since adding quilters to our fold.

*Please remember to tag hats, mittens, and slippers with the size you've made.  The above white tags work well, but you can also cut index cards and attach.*

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?
