Donations from Sunny Florida Aid Ohio's Homeless

Look at this beautiful. colorful log cabin quilt style knitted afghan!  Our good friend Sandra R down in sunny Florida made this.  I've knitted and crocheted many different afghans over the years, but have never made a log cabin style (though that's one of the current ones I'm working)
Wanted to show it both directions so you could get a good look at it.  And like the tradition of quilting where families had pieces parts left from other garments they had made for the family, Sandra has used up her left over yarn from the many other knitted items she's donated to Bridge and Beyond over a period of time.  Seeing this Sandra has given me an extra nudge with the one I've started (and considered scraping).  This afghan is nice and large, soft and warm.  Truly a work of art some family will treasure.

Yippee Skippy, I'm clapping for mittens too!  Hats and mittens knitted and nicely tagged were also in her box of donations.

Many many thanks Sandra for your hard work, and your on going support of homeless people in need here in Ohio.  Please keep up the good work.

  1. Sandra, thank you for sharing your amazing talents with the Ohio Homeless. These are so beautiful, and will keep everyone that is lucky to get them warm and cozy. The afghan is amazing. Have never seen one before until Sandy started working on hers.
    Good luck to her and thanks to you for sharing this. Marj in Minnesota/ 20 degrees/snow on the way :+)

    1. Thanks Marj for popping in, love seeing here daily! Right you are, Sandra's work is beautiful and so full of loving warmth to help others.

  2. Very nice log cabin afghan Sandra! That is a pattern that I have never made. The mitten and hat sets are very warm looking. The afghan will sure help to keep some people warm this cold winter.

  3. Thanks so much for this AWESOME donation, Sandra! Whoever receives your log cabin afghan will feel not only warm but very special! And the ones receiving the hats and mittens will certainly be nice and cozy. Thank you so much for using your time and talent to help those less fortunate! Keep your needles flying!
    Sandy: keep on with your log cabin! It will be great!

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?
