Pink Persuation Afghan Designed

Holly Cow, you're saying, how many afghans did that crazed woman (me being the crazed woman) design?  I'm not telling you.  Let's just say at some point in the multi-day process hubby said these squares going to be a permanent part of the living room?  Yes...once I dumped the huge number I had I left them for several days and just kept at it.  Designing, photographing, labeling, bagging.  And it truly did take a while.

I named this one Pink Persuation, but am open to suggestions if anyone has an idea.  I will probably edge and join in off white, unless I have the right shade of pink in my stash when the time comes.  Anyone find their squares in this design?

 PLEASE, if you've not been visiting, reading and commenting frequently double your efforts...it truly is helpful.  AND remember even when you're busy you can help....you can blog,  tweet, Facebook, email, and chat with folks about what we do and how great the need is.

Recruit Help...do you know someone at church, school, your sons baseball team that is kind hearted.....have you told them about the group?  Have you joined our FACEBOOK  group?

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.
