Rusty Nail Design

By now you probably know I've been in design mode.  The process is messy, involved and fun all at the same time.  My living room always looks a mess when I'm throwing squares around.  I divide by color all around the edge of the room so I can use the floor area to design.  It's quite a process, hubby likes to be gone when I'm doing this, lol.

Some of these squares are knitted, some are crocheted, some are sampler style and others are actually granny squares.  Some are a bit more rectangle then square, and as you can see there's a huge variance in size here.  Remember I have squares from before I asked for 8 x 8 only, and I have squares from before Bridge and Beyond time.

I have some nice rust colored yarn to edge and join with, fingers crossed it's enough.

    I agree with SALLY. This is a beautiful layout and the name is perfect. These are some of my favorite colors, and they are definitely going to make someone happy. Beautiful sunny day here today. Beautiful sunny afghan.

  3. I love it. It's very 70s feeling. Someone will really love snuggling with it.

  4. I bet this will be so pretty when it's all together!

  5. I love this color combo and the name you have given it! I can't wait to see it finished also! Keep up the good work Sandy.

  6. Nice Fall colors :0)

  7. It is chilly here. So the orange colors made me think of a warm fire going. This will be another nice & warm afghan.

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?
