Designing Afghans from Donated Squares, Spring Happiness

If you were wondering if I still had afghan from the latest design craze to show you...here's your answer.  Yes....I do.  Shades of pink and green made me think, Preppy?  Not sure I like that name, so am certainly open to suggestions.  I think sage green would make a nice edge and join choice, but know I've thought of using sage green for another of the designed ghans, so it all just depends when I do them what colors I have.

**ANNOUNCEMENT: Until further notice we will stop collecting plastic bags, and kitchen containers.  We're nicely stocked up on those items for Rae's feeding the hungry ministry.  Thank you to all who've helped.  We will continue to collect plastic silver ware for the same cause for a while longer, so please stay tuned.**

    Another afghan that will make some little girl happy. Should be very pretty when completed, I agree with the sage green idea. I am sure this will be lovely. Glad to hear we are providing enough bags and containers. Will get more plasitc silverware on the move, glad to know what is needed.

  2. Wow! you just keep popping those designs out don't you Sandy. You do such a great job. This is a very nice one. I can't wait to see the finished product. I hope to see you soon Sandy. I've got a few more things to do on the Licorice ghan. I'll contact you when I'm done.

  3. Thanks ladies for your thoughtful comments. Sherry sing out when you can, looking forward to our visit.

  4. Sandy, This is a great idea, I am thinking of starting a group in my local area I have found a few local people who love to knit and crochet so we will see how it goes.

  5. I like this one too.....of course pink I've loved forever! How about Spring Happiness......that's what I see when I look at it!

  6. Some little girl will love this afghan. Glad to know Rae is getting stocked up on containers. This is such a great group!

  7. Yes I agree with you SSeger.......this is a great group and Sandy that is a great Afghan! Love the colors. It is very peaceful and calming to look at. I know I could cuddle right up under it and be asleep in no time! In fact I wish I had it now as it is chilly here and a good day to cuddle up under an Afghan!

  8. Love the way these blocks coordinated.

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.
