Daisies and Funky Fall Designed Afghans

It's been a while since this afghan, Daisies has been designed.  It's been in waiting mode to be joined and donated for our welcome home project.  For new readers here on the blog you may not know.  I collected both knitted and crocheted squares and assembled afghans which are part of The Homeless Families Foundation Welcome Home Packs.  They receive afghans from us as a way to say congratulations when the transition out of shelter living into their permanent home situation.  Truly something to celebrate.  It's been a good long while since I've asked for squares as I still have plenty on hand to work with.  I did however want to share this with you.  The above afghan is in the works.  I worked on edging the squares on a recent long car trip (where I wasn't driving).  Hope to have it completed soon, so please stay tuned.

**crocheting one edge around all squares in double crochet, except the light yellow/gold squares.  They seem just a bit smaller, will possible add an additional sc round after the  doubles to see if that brings them up to size**

And below is one called Funky Fall, unless someone can come up with a better name...please!  I'm two squares short and will use the yarn you see laid out to make the 2 squares needed.  Once the squares are made, then will start the edging process for this afghan.  Since there are more squares for this afghan, probably don't need to do more then a sc edge around these squares before joining.


  1. WOW SANDY! These are two beauties. Will be anxious to see the finished product. I am partial to the orange and green. Dont know why, something about it is calling my name:+)

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?
