Pink and Purple Petals

I've designed many pink and purple afghans, but they're all different...The squares in the lower right corner isn't blue, it's purple though it looks kinda blue in the picture.  Why is that?  Purple is also such a tough color to show up right.  So far the only name I can come up with for this one is Pink and Purple Petals.  If someone has a suggestion, please sing out.  As I said, having designed and assembled several pink and purple combo's...I just didn't come up with a name I'm thrilled with.  Perhaps over time something will come to mind, or maybe as I work on this one.  Believe it could nicely edged and assembled with beige, or purple...which have to check my stash.  Several different sized squares here, still working at using up some of the older squares I have in my stash, prior to requesting ONLY 8 x 8 to make assembly quicker.

Still have plenty of squares folks, so please hold mailing until further notice.  I really need to make some room.  I don't anticipate needing any for awhile.

Let me once again encourage EVERYONE to visit, to read, to stay current with the right size, color etc. of items needed.  Changes happen based on need.  Please stay current so you don't spend time making something that doesn't serve our needs.  AND, please don't be shy.  Post comments, take time and cheer each other on and admire each others work.  We all enjoy that.  It is easy, you do not need to be a blogger to leave a comment.

    I am so hungry for spring right now that Pink and Purple Petals does it for me. Want to be in my garden. I am a purple girl so I love this one. Have never made an afhgan other then huge grannies. May have to try it again. Love this one. Pink and Purple Promise, Pink and Purple Petunias, No I think Pink and Purple Petals gets my vote. This will be a beauty Sandy.:+)

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?
