Licorice Afghan Donated to Homeless Families Foundation

Thank you Sherry K for this lovely afghan, whomever receives this at Homeless Families Foundation is going to be thrilled.  It's nicely sized, and very well made.  Here's team work for you folks, our friend from New York Ann Marie, sent squares to Sherry K (through the group they've become friends...pretty cool), and Sherry assembled the ghan.   Sherry named this afghan, Licorice...how perfect is that!! Then Sherry and I met again for coffee and a nice visit so she could pass the ghan along to me.  Gotta love team work!  And I passed along Pink Persuasion to be assembled to Sherry.   Sherry also loomed 2 hats.  Thank you Sherry for your hard work!

    HOW PERFECT IS THIS? Teamwork. Love it. Licorice is the right name for sure, and you are right Sandy someone is going to be so happy with this. Also Pink Persuasion is one we all liked so well. Know it will be lovely. GOOD JOB LADIES

  2. Thank you Marjorie! I love working with others to make things happen!! Annemarie is such a great person and we get along so well. She has also sent me another set of blocks I have dubbed "Primary Colors" As soon as I can get down on the floor to lay them out (I have back pain) I will post a picture of it on my blog too.

    Would love to see it Sherry. Back Pain is no stranger here. Once I am down there is always the problem of getting back up. You should see me in my garden. Would love to see your Primary Colors. You are very talented. Annemarie seems to be a good partner for you.You guys make good things happen. Much appreciated.

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?
