Donating Afghans Gives both Physical Warmth and Emotional Warmth

 Thank you Christina D.  These photo's were taken when I opened her donation (hand delivered by our friend Nikki S), but before I laundered and blocked the ghans.  A big granny square which will be a nice child size blanket to snuggle up in.  Christina's been busy folks.  Take a Look.
 A variety of granny's here stitched together and then edged in mint green.  This ghan is also a nice child sized ghan, but could also work as a lapghan for a teen.  Christina and her crochet hook must not sleep, because......
here's yet another child size ghan.  Kids having a ghan to curl up with will not only warm them physically, but give them quite an important emotional lift.  Kids have a lot to deal with when families are homeless or in transition, so being able to have a "special" blanket of their own is really comforting.  Thank you Christina for your thoughtfulness.

My note also says there were personal care items and 5 cotton washcloths, but something seems to have happened to the picture that shows that part of her donation.  Sorry about that Christina.  All these items have already been delivered, or I would go back and try to retake the photo.

Thank you for your generosity, please keep up the good work.

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?
