Crocheted Afghans Make Family's Feel Special

 Thank you Cheryl S for this awesome donation of afghans for our Welcome Home Project.  If you're hear on the blog for the time, you may not know we supply afghans to family's through The Homeless Families Foundation as they transition from shelter living into their permanent housing situation.  It's a way to say, Welcome Home!  We wish you the very best going forward, to congratulate them for this important move.  Cheryl's work is fabulous and her heart is boundless.  Isn't this colorful afghan gorgeous!  Bright and cherry, sized nicely for a little girl to totally curl up  in, a teen cuddle in while doing homework or watching tv, and or a family to share.
 I love the colors and the texture in this design and how masculine it looks.  This looks to be crocheted with front post triple crochets?  This is perfect for a family afghan, or for a male teen or adult.  Beautifully made Cheryl.
 Adorable!  How pretty and pink this one is.  Some girl, teen or younger will be thrilled with this.
 Don't stop scrolling folks, there's more.  Cheryl...did you get any sleep lately?  You must have the faster crochet hook ever....is it battery operated?  This gray striped ghan is a bit larger and will be an awesome family afghan, such nice colors.
AND........drum roll please.  Another one.  Made on diagonal.  Love the edging Cheryl, what stitch did you use?  These 5 crocheted afghans are a fabulous donation and will make 5 people/families feel very very special.

Thank you Cheryl for your dedication, please keep up the good work.

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?
