Assembling Mountain Meadow Afghan

Reviewing pictures in my designed and waiting to be assembled folder, I came across this afghan to be.  It's one I didn't name at the time I designed it; but as I look at it this morning, Mountain Meadow came to me.  Green for meadows, browns, little bit of purple for the haze that often appears over mountains, and some yellow...not much for sunshine?

It may take some doing, to find this in my stash since it's not named and since I've not been able to get downstairs to my stash in several months due to the broken foot; however.........am expecting to get the go ahead for minimal stairs today after my physical therapy, provided things go well.

As we're blogging in alphabetical order and today is letter M, thought I'd share this with you.  There are 9 strips that will need to be edged and joined.  I think it will require some adding on to make it an appropriate size to keep someone warm.  These strips were donated as scarves some time back, but they are really not sized properly for scarves, so I thought this would be a good use of them.  When I get donations that don't meet our needs (size, color, fiber wise), I try very hard to find another purpose or method of use so that the donation  can still take place.  

If you've not looked before, please notice the tabs across the top of the blog for each item we knit/crochet/loom and donate.  Those tabs contain information necessary for our donations to meet the needs of those we serve.  If you have any questions, please use the contact form in the right sidebar, leave a comment, or send me an email.

**The counts on our progress bars are current. 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. Mountain Meadow is a good name for this soon to be afghan. Making an afghan is a great idea and a good way to use the scarves that are to small.

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?
