Pastel Garden Afghan in the Works Needs a New Name

Here's Pastel Garden in stage One, it's original design.  At some point the upper right square with the Teddy Bear was removed to a more appropriate afghan design and a celery color green square was added to replace it.

Here's Pastel Garden after our friend Tristi started edging some of the squares.  With the dark green, it no longer looks like pastel garden, so believe we're  in need of renaming it.  Tristi has passed this ghan in the works back  to me  for completion.  Anyone have any ideas for a new name?  We'll have time to maul it over, as I have 3 other ghans currently in the works, so unsure when I'll get back to this one.

Green Garden is all I've come up with so far.  Secret Garden?  The book....just popped into my head.

Speak up folks.

  1. Secret Garden is a good name. I have never made squares and put them together. But I would move the square on the edge that has the purple flower that looks like it is raised, put it in the middle and the it will be a Secret Garden. (Just my thought, I am not a designer)

    1. GREAT idea Sue, love it and thanks! Will move a few of the others around so all the same colors are concentrated in one area. The Power of additional brains is awesome.

  2. They are all so pretty!! With more of the dark green edging - it would be like a lovely Forest Glade... but that kind of sounds like an air freshener :-) maybe Forest Retreat? Forest Flowers? I don't know - but it will be gorgeous!

  3. What about Forest Garden-bringing the dark green in with the beautiful colors. Sort of a combination of the two. I love it none the less.

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?
