Completed Afghans for Homeless Families Foundation

 Thank you Tristi for putting this beautiful afghan, Crown Jewels together.  I love that you choose black to edge and join, it really pops! 
This gorgeous ghan is called Purple Mountain Majesty.  Thank you Trisit.  I so appreciate your help with assembling these ghans.  These two afghans truly show team work at it's finest.  Squares from lots of different hands, some solids, some variegated, some granny style in stitches, others sorta sampler style all pulled beautifully together by Tristi's skillful hands.

These afghans are both nicely sized for families and will be very much appreciated by Homeless Families Foundation and the 2 families who received them.

And, as Tristi and I pass squares and completed ghans back and forth, we're enjoying the bonus of building a nice friendship as we get to know each other better with each visit over tea.

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?
