Crocheted Afghan Donated

Another awesome donation from our good friend and generous supporter Sandra R from Florida.  This afghan, crocheted in The Log Cabin Style will certainly bring a smile to someone's face, as well as keep someone warm.  Love the colors, suitable for a male or female.  Who wouldn't want to curl up under this afghan!

Sandra also sent hats, mittens, and cotton washcloths, which were in a separate picture.  However, when I plugged in my memory card to write this blog post, only one picture was visible.  No clue what happened to the other picture.  Thankfully notes tell me there were 10 hats, 3 pairs of mittens, and 14 washcloths.  Sandra's hats were all tagged with size which is very much appreciated, as it aids in seeing hats get in the right donation bag for delivery.

Thank you Sandra, and please keep up the good work!

Hats:      244 -10=234
Scarves:  121
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers:   82 -3 =79
Slippers: 77
Rain Poncho's:   +106
Cotton Washcloths:  339 - 14 =325
Afghans:    14 -1 = 13
Socks:   184
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands:   8
Shawls and shrugs, ponchos, sweaters & vests etc 0
Misc: items like personal care, headbands etc and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted.

Please note the category of shawl, shrugs, ponchos etc has reached our little goal, same as last year of 1.........but please please please.........don't let that stop you from making more of these items.  Likewise note we've definitely reached our goal for rain poncho's.  Rain ponchos's serve many purposes so we will probably still need some....down the line, but not for awhile.

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?
