Crocheted Afghans Warm Hearts

 This is a continuation of the wonderful donation of afghans crocheted by Sheelagh S.  If you didn't see the previous  post, please scroll back.  You don't want to miss anything.  I've flipped a corner of this Polish Star Afghan so you can how different the two sides look.  Both front and back are awesome.  Please do click to enlarge so you can see the detail.  This is quite thick and will be very warm.  LOVE the colors as well as the unusual pattern.  Not one I was familiar with, but perhaps you are.  Sheelagh tells me the pattern comes from "Crochet Spectacular Polish Stars" (The Needlecraft Shop.  The stitch pattern is available for free on Ravelry, HERE 
 Trying for a closer look in this picture of both front and back.  The pattern link above is a pillow pattern, but the stitch...the Polish Star is there.
AND....yes, another gorgeous crocheted afghan from Sheelagh.  Once again I encourage you to click on the picture to enlarge it so you can see details.  The variety of stitches in this afghan is really something.  It's called Lace and Bobbles from Scrap Yarn Afghans Book Two.  Click here to purchase pattern on RAV. 

The families who receive either of these beautiful afghans is going to be thrilled.  

Many thanks Sheelagh, and please keep up the good work.

**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.

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?
