Hats, Scarves and Lapghan Donated to the Homeless

 Drum roll please, got some goodies to share with you again.  A fun warm afghan/lapghan.  The center looks like bright sunshine to me with the blues and greens, oranges etc.  Lots of primary colors here and more!!
 Guess who's been busy with her crochet hook?  Guess, lol.  Do you recognize the style?  Bet you do, this crocheted granny square afghan/lapghan comes from the smoking hot crochet hook that belongs to our friend Marsha M.  I love this color combination.  Looks so bright and cheery and sorta Christmasy.  
 AND for some more variety, our friend Marsha M has included hats and a scarf.  Love the variety of colors in the hats.  Warm heads are happy heads.

Oh, this purple one, what female wouldn't love this one!!  I'm trying hard to pick a favorite from this group and it's a real toss up....hum, maybe the purple, it looks so peaceful and restful.........then again the red and green.  Oh my, it's hard, but I think I'll go with the purple.  How bout you?  As always, I remind you to click to enlarge so you can see details of any of the pictures here on Bridge and Beyond.  It helps you truly admire the hard work that goes into our big hearted crafters donations.

AND........wow, look how our numbers toward our goal are improving.

Many many thanks Marsha, please 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?
