Saluting Tristi and Her Afghans

Do you feel like you should salute?  Tristi assembled this Red,White and Blue Ghan for us and it turned out really nice.  I was trying to get some light from the window for this picture as it suddenly got very dark here.  Looks like a storm is coming.  Click to enlarge and check out the nice border stitching she used.    Do you see any of your squares here folks?  Some are knitted, some crocheted and they were of varying sizes.  Awesome Tristi, thanks so much for your help.

Got this photo before I lost the light in the living room.  Really pleased how this one turned out, very pretty pastels and several very interesting squares in this one.  Some of these squares I know go way back.  Another great job Trisit with the assembly work...the border in blue.......absolutely perfect, it really pulls it all together so nicely.

 And...when we got together so I could take delivery of the awesome ghans, look what we had!  Tristi had ice tea and this yummy chocolate brownie with caramel sauce. 
And I had this fabulous chocolate chi tea.  It was worth burning the tip of my tongue.  It was soooooooooo good.  We had fun chatting about family, yarn, the weather, vacations and what a neat place, The Chocolate Cafe' is. 

Thanks so much for all your hard work Tristi.  Looking forward to our next outing.

 May's focus will be hats.  Hats are needed for Men, Women, and children; not toddlers and infants.  PLEASE tag ALL hats with size.  When you tag your hats you do not need to be fancy, use string, yarn, or a safety pin when attaching your tag to your hat.  Please check hat tab for help with sizing, information needed, as well as what to avoid, thank you.

  1. Tristi I can tell what a wonderful help you are to Bridge and Beyond! You do a fabulous job putting those Afghans together! I can't decide which one I like better as they are both so GREAT! Thanks for all your hard work. I am so glad you found us.

    Love the red white and blue. I guess that is my favorite. Patriotic things get to my heart. The other one is lovely also of course. Good job ladies. Happy you are able to get together. Keep up the good work.

  3. I love the red, white and blue afghan! Great job Tristi on putting both of the afghans together. Sounds like the two of you had a good time. The brownie looked so good. Yum, yum.

  4. I thought the red/white/blue was pretty and so patriotic with perfect timing for Memorial Day/Flag Day/4th of July, and then I scrolled down and saw the bordered blue one -- both really pretty and will definitely brighten someone's life!

  5. Hi all thanks for visiting, glad you're enjoy Tristi's ghans as much as I do. I like them both, but think I'm partial to the 2nd one, love the way it turned out.

  6. What a wonderful job you did Kristi! I have seen several on here that you have completed for Sandy and Bridge and Beyond and they all are great. I also am putting afghans together but at a much slower pace. It is very rewarding isn't it?

  7. Thanks for all the nice compliments! I'm partial to the pastel one too, but I had fun with both. Thanks for the "chance" (excuse) to visit Chocolate Cafe' again, Sandy!

  8. We will need to visit the cafe again, it's a tough job, but I know we're up to the task Tristi!

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.
