Pretty, Colorful, Sweet and Warm Donation

Look how sweet this afghan is!  It's bright, cheery and adorable.  Thank you Maria T. R. from Texas for this awesome donation.  This afghan will work for a teen or adult female as a lapghan and or a prized possession for some little girl.  Whomever receives this will be smiling.

Thank you Maria and please keep up the good work!

This afghan like all our afghans will be donated through Homeless Families Foundations.

Here we are the 3rd day in April already.  Aprils focus will be scarves, but I'd also like to continue our focus on afghans and quilts.

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?
