Afghan Needs a Name

This afghan needs a name. When I first laid out these donated squares (Liz from Bridge and Beyond), fall foliage hit my brain; later as I began to work on it, I thought perhaps Garden Patch....and now not so sure. They are fall colors, but something about the squares made me think garden. This isn't a very good picture, I'm not edging it in white though it looks like it, it's off white/ivory. The squares had nice long tails and so I used the green Liz had edge them all with to sew them together, then decided to increase a bit by edging the strip in the off white. Current plan is to join the strips then with the off white, and find dark green in my stash to do a couple of rows around the whole ghan, then maybe a row of orange and finish it in green?

Thoughts on a name? This is another of afghans made to be donated to Bridge and Beyond.

I've promised myself I will work on a scarf I started long ago this week..., but am close to finishing this ghan, so ....we'll see.

What are you working on for Work in Progress Wednesday? Badges and links in the sidebar. Asking everyone using on of the linky's to please get rid of your captcha's. The filters for blogspot work great, you really don't need them. Having captcha's and approving all your comments is doubly un-necessary. The new captcha's are even harder to see then they used to be. Some have seen post this request before...I did for our Sunday YOP. Try it without for 2 wks, I'd be surprised if you'll have any trouble without it.

  1. I really love your afghand and I like Garden Patch as it reminds me of a garden of lawn with flower beds laid out in it.

  3. I like the fall foliage idea, it's a very autumnal color mix. Maybe Fall Woods?

  4. Thanks Pink, I'm liking the sound of your idea...it does in color look very autumnal to me...might make another one garden patch with brighter springier colors? Fall Woods, or Woods in Fall...which sounds better?

  5. I almost want to tell you to name this "peas and carrots," the great green/orange combination jumped right out at me. I love the squares and colours. :D

  7. How about "Bountiful Harvest"?

    I agree those new captcha's are really bothersome.

    I don't use them and I've had "zero" spam recently. So far do good :)

  8. The first thing I thought of was Autumn Colors. Whatever name you will give it, it is a special looking blanket.

  9. I also thought fall, something like Autumn Leaves, but Garden Patch works too. I don't have much trouble with spam. I have noticed a few spam comments come through on one of your sites though I can't remember which. I so agree those captchas are difficult to see. I generally have to go through several before I hit one I can read.

  10. Loads of good ideas for the names, many thanks folks....I'll make a decision as I continue to work on it, hoping to finish it up in a day or so. Just deleted one comment here that the spam filter missed and had one the other day on Traveling Suitcase, but 2 comments for 3 blogs with lots of exposure and visitors is awesome in my opinion. And those 2 are the first I've had in months, so the filters work extremely well. Just deleted 35 in my spam folder on the dashboard a few days ago....good work spam filter.

  11. I always have lots in my spam folder also. They catch the majority of it. I keep forgetting to check it since I pull my mail from thunderbird. Thanks for the reminder! (I think there should be a special punishment for spammers! We waste so much of our time on their spam!)
