Thank you Marsha M! Donated Crocheted Afghans Galore

 By now, you surely must know who's hook these big granny square afghans are from.  Unless it's your first trip to this blog, Bridge and Beyond.  Marsha M must be the fastest crocheter in the world!!  She hand delivered bags of these lovely, cheery afghans/lapghans to my house.  I've opened each bag, photographed and edited lots of photo's of her work.
 Each afghan/lapghan was received with great enthusiasm at Homeless Families Foundation where they were all delivered.  In fact, they were all delivered before you got to see them all and read about them all here on the blog.  I honestly don't think Marsha missed a color when you go back and look at each one.
 Some are similar in colors, and yet each one is truly and totally unique.  Some have a dominate color theme, others are mingled every few row.  I've had fun looking at them all, and know you have as well.  I'm thrilled beyond words at how Marsha's donation brought our numbers so close to last years mark...and still we have some time left, so please do keep checking in folks to see how close we get.

If I could pick a favorite in this group, perhaps it would be the first one.  What about you?


**To match last years donation totals, we need 164 more scarves, as of today...there's 20 physical days left in the year, so we would need a donation of 8.2 scarves per day to make it.  How close will we get? AND 180 hats which is 9 per day.  Anyone want to make a wager?  AND look how close we are to our Afghan total!

DONATIONS 2017

HATS:  180
SCARVES (Gators, Infinity Scarves)  164
MITTENS:  +9
SLIPPERS: 52
RAIN PONCHOS: 205
COTTON WASHCLOTHS: +72
AFGHANS: 11-4=7
SOCKS: 120 
Misc, Ponchos, shawls, headbands etc aren't counted but very much appreciated.

**We started the year with the number of items we had donated last year, 2016; and will subtract our donations from that.  Using the end number for 2016 as the goal for the each item.  So, as the year continues you will see numbers decrease.  Our goal is to meet and surpass the number of items donated last year.**

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

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?
