Crocheted Afghan truly says Welcome Home

If I were naming this afghan it would have to be something along the lines of Caribbean Cruise.   I've always been a big fan of blues and greens together, this definitely makes me think of ocean and salty breezes.  Another wonderful team effort with squares made by our good friend from New York, AnneMarie, and assembled by our other good friend, Sherry K right here in Buckeye Land.  It also reminds me of the first 2 peace bathing suit I had way back in the day.  Twas a real 2 piece too, not a bikini.  Back in the dark ages when I was a young girl you stayed pretty covered up ...even in a 2 piece.  Boy legs were more like shorts, the waste was covered and the top was anything but skimpy.  Anyone as old as dirt like me and remember the style I'm describing?  lol

Thank you Sherry and AnneMarie, you both Rock!

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?
