Crocheted Donations Help Ohio's Homeless

 Another pretty lacy feminine afghan from Patty C's crochet hook.  Please scroll back to yesterday's post to see her other pretty's.  These are motive style granny squares joined together to make a lovely afghan.  Patty's joined 16 squares, so it's a very nice sized square.  Luck be the lady tonight, an old Frank Sinatra song popped into my head as I was getting ready to type how lucky the lady who receives this beauty is.  Anyone as old as me know the song?
Yesterday I said Patty's been busy and I really wasn't teasing folks.  Hats galore and a couple of scarves round out her thoughtful donation.  Whew...

Thank you also Patty for taking the time to tag your hats with the size, it helps everyone.

Hats: 191+27=218
Scarves 73+2=75
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 45
Slippers: 63
Rain Poncho's:  53

  1. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL PATTY! you have really outdone yourself. Everyone is prettier then the next . Hope you had time for anything else during the making of this donation.(food, sleep) :+) Really wonderful and will be so appreciated by anyone who gets it. Luck Be a Lady Tonight is a good name for the Lilac afghan, All of us old Frank Sinatra lovers remember that one Sandy.
    Have had enough rain here, but with the storms hitting the rest of the country I guess we are lucky..Hope everyone is making it through safely.
    GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS. Thanks again Patty. marj in minnesota

    1. Glad I'm not the only one who loves the old songs Marj. We had a storm last night, but it was worse in other areas. Many thanks for your thoughtful visit and comment.

  2. I thought yesterday's blue afghans were truly beautiful and now this! And yes, I remember Luck Be a Lady too :)

    1. Thank you Sheila for the visits and comments. Frank Sinatra...good tunes.

  3. She's one busy lady!! Lots of good looking things she created for your work!


    1. I know, made me tired just thinking about all of it.
      Thanks Betty

  4. This is all so great! Hard at work for the better. Yes!

    1. Right you are hard at work for others, Katy. Thanks for the visits.

  5. Beautiful afghan, Patty!! And the hats are great...you've been very busy!

    1. Hi Sarah, thanks for popping in, always good to see you here. Beautiful busy hands at work here.

  6. What a wonderful donation Patty! That is such a beautiful purple afghan. All those hats and scarves will sure help keep lots of people warm.
    Yesterday, I got the letters to fill in and today was a pic with house numbers.

    1. Thank you for you supportive comments Sue, you're right on the mark about keeping lots of people warm.

      Yesterday you got the captcha yesterday and today. Good to know. I prefer not having it at all, but somehow it seems to help those of our visitors who had trouble previously, when I had that feature turned off. Wish I understood why.

  7. This is really pretty-I love the purple and the design. I kinda hope a woman receives this to make her feel special. Of course I know this song-It's from Guys and Dolls sung first by Robert Alda (dad to Alan Alda) on the stage version and then sung by Marlon Brando in the film. Frank made it his own in his records and on stage though

    1. We all know the old songs, so glad its not just me. Thanks Birgit for adding to it's history with info about Guys and Dolls above, I didn't know that. This beautiful purple afghan will definitely go to a Lady. The folks at homeless families foundation sort things really well.

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?
