Crocheted Love and Warmth for those in Need

 Can't you see this paired with blue jeans, or a pair of black tights?  How special with some teen or young female adult feel wearing this crocheted sweater!  Thank you Sheelagh S for this thoughtful and beautiful donation.
 But, wait folks, don't go away...there's more to share with you.  Sheelagh has been very busy with her trusty crochet hook and yarn.  Look at this gorgeous afghan!  I love the changes in stitches and colors, truly a work of art.  This drape across someone's sofa or favorite chair will add quite a focal point to anyone's room.  I can picture now how excited the family that receives this will be in their new home.  Remember folks, we donated afghans as folks transition from shelter living to their permanent homes.  What better way to say good luck for the future and congratulations than an afghan.
 And won't some young mother be proud to have these for her daughter's bed?  Who doesn't like the traditional crocheted ripple afghan.  This is sized so nicely for girls bed.
 And look at this fun sweater.........told you not to go away, there's more!  A teen or adult female will be warm  and proud to wear this sweater, another piece of wearable art.
 Holly cow Sheelagh, you've done it again.  This could possibly be a tunic top over tights or jeans for a teen; maybe even a dress for a younger teen.
This proves to me, Sheelagh must not sleep.  Another afghan.  A fun round one that will be great for a young child or a lapghan for an adult.  So many beautifully crafted donations to help so many folks in need.

Thank you Sheelagh, please 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?
