Crocheted Afghans Make Perfect House Warming Gift


What an awesome afghan!  Nicely sized and colors that work for a man, or a women....as well as a family.  This beauty was crocheted by our good friend Cheryl S.  Nicely done Cheryl and please keep up the good work.  Cheryl has been a long time supporter of Bridge Beyond and has helped many Ohio's Homeless with her crocheted donations.  Do pop back in to see the remainder of her donation.

Afghans, for those who might be visiting here for the first time are donated to Homeless Families Foundations and are used as a welcome home gift.  Once a family transitions from shelter to their permanent housing situation congratulations are in order.  What better way to say congrats, and best of luck for the future then to give the time honored housewarming gift of a handmade (knit or crocheted)afghan.

If you quilt or know someone who does........we'd be happy to donated quilts for the same cause.

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?
