I am THRILLED to see how many people we've been able to keep warm during these cold, wet, snowing, months in Central Ohio. We're having Spring...flowers are coming out with the sun during the day.........NIGHTS, still a different story. We're still having freezing temperatures at night; though are looking forward to that coming to an end. PLEASE keep knitting and crocheting. Anything not working for our men under the bridge will be used for those at the free clinic (women and children). AND....any items not needed at the clinic will be available for the next season. Fall can come fast and cold here in Ohio.

My sincere thanks, once again for so many kind and caring people!

  5. You've done a wonderful job of posting photos and keeping folks apprised of what is happening with this effort. It's amazing you can do all you do, especially so when life throws you unexpected curves.

  6. You know I think it was helpful to be able to continue to help people while Mom was dying. It gave me something positive to do and think about. I couldn't help her, but I could still help others, Sandie

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?
