Donating Orange Julius Afghan to Homeless Families Foundation

 Here is Orange Julius completed.  Below you see the  before and here you see the after.    It looks a bit funky below as the picture was originally Vertical, but I turned it to be more the way the finished picture is.  Believe I moved one or two squares around as I was working on also, in order to even out color a bit more.  It's been laundered and is being blocked and drying above.  I took these squares with me to Hilton Head recently and completed it there.  Actually, it's one of 3 afghans I worked on while on vacation.

Afghans with mixed squares are a bit tedious to work on, but I generally like the end result.  There are different sizes here, as you can tell.  Additionally some of the squares are knitted and some are crocheted.  Lots of different hands involved in this afghan.

This afghan, like all ours got donated to Homeless Families Foundation and hopefully will give someone physical warm, as well as emotional warmth.

I've had a few question recently about sending squares or stripes, but am still not in need of to assemble.  At some point I might be, but still quite a bit on hand.  So, please let me encourage you all make completed afghans....nudge nudge.  

**The counts on our progress bars are current. Percentages are current, as of Feb 15th. 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.

  1. WOO Hoo! Nice to see that Orange Julius is done. I bet some children will love to snuggle under that colorful afghan.

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?
