Donating Blue Crocheted Afghans

Look at this pretty aqua blue/ turquoise blue crocheted afghan!  Such a pretty color.  The open shell lacy pattern is very feminine and will put a smile on the face of the lucky lady who receives this.  Thank you Patty C for this thoughtful and pretty afghan.
Who doesn't like blue!  This long rectangular blue afghan will work better for the men folk in the group, and or teens.  Afghans are loved by everyone who receives them.  It's such a wonderful way to say congratulations and best of luck for a brighter future when our homeless families transition from shelter to permanent housing.  Thank you Patty you've put smiles on 2 families faces.

Please keep up the good work Patty!!

Folks, pop back in, Patty's been really busy...there's more to share!

**Experimenting for a couple of days folks, have enabled the captcha to see what the difference is, even with it not on, some of our non blogger friends have been getting it anyway.  Sooooo, please let me know if you get a captcha when you leave a comment, and if you get words, letters, or pictures.  Thanks, will leave it on for 3 days to see if there's a differnce.**

  1. Very nice and much needed afghans!

    1. Right you are Sherry, thanks for your sweet supportive comments.

  2. Such pretty blue for both! I don't see a captcha on leaving a comment.


    1. Thanks Betty, appreciate the visit, and supportive comments as well as the feedback about the captcha, makes me wonder if it's backward.

  3. Looking at Bettys comment I am giving it one more try.Havent gotten on for days now.'
    Love the beautiful colors in the afghans. they will make a nice adition to someones new home.GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS. marj in minnesota

    1. You're absolutely right, Marj they will make a wonderful welcome home gift for someone.

  4. Sandy, maybe you did it this time with the security turn on.wont count my chickens yet. may be a one day thing. marj in minnesota

    1. Glad you're getting in fingers crossed as well, did you see a captcha when you left both comments?

  5. Nice afghans Patty. I really like the aqua blue/ turquoise blue one. Great job!

    1. Thank you SSeger, appreciate your visits and comments. Did you get a captcha when you left a comment? Was it pictures, words, or numbers?

  6. Awesome! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day--feeling better every day. Loving acts of kindness are so great to see!
    ~Lucy at Kidsmathteacher.com

    1. Best of luck in all you do Lucy. There are many people with loving acts of kindness who help the Bridge and Beyond with its mission.

  7. A brilliant blue which is calming and happy. Another thing is that one can see the person which may be beneficial to the homeless person

    1. I like brilliant, calming and happy, not sure I understand Birgit what you mean about the seeing the person? Thank you for your visits.

    2. Oh sorry, yes that is vague. The homeless are often in dark colours and could easily be hit by a car or they "disappear" in to the cement when they are laying down against a building. Maybe by having something bright on, they will be noticed more. Does that make sense?

  8. Afghans are great, especially cheerful blue ones!

    1. Thank you Lynda, I really think everyone loves blue.

  9. What a grand idea to raise money for the homeless. I've been talking about the dance studio I'm putting in my garage, as I just moved last year. I do about the same as you do. I don't really charge but there is a donation can for money that goes to the animal shelter. I know others who do the same with Yoga studios.
    The afghans will make someone very happy.

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?
