Karen and Frank from South Carolina have just joined our fabulous group. They're our first couple, and Frank's a hat making machine!! Seriously, I am in receipt of 65 hats. They're are fabulous, vary a bit in size and are made with lots of wonderful colors.
I'm still having issues with pictures with the change over in my photo soft ware, so my photo's aren't coming out quite as well. Sorry, I do hope you can see how wonderful all these Fabulous Frank Hat's are.
Frank's hats are loomed, they are nice and heavy, made with a variety of yarn. Both he and Karen enjoy knitting, crocheting, looming for the benefit of others. Living in a warm climate they said they were thrilled to find us and be a part of the cause. Please welcome both Karen and Frank. I've added a link to our team list on the side bar so you're able to visit their blog.
Shelly, one of our newest members...some darling hats arrived yesterday. Work schedule prevented me from getting the photo done and posted. Sorry folks. She sent a nice variety of sizes. Some are for wee ones, some for youths, and I think one looks good for a teen with another that will work for adult. YIPPEE.
I'm super excited that we're off to such a good start for this fall and the coming season.
Got an email that tells me scarves on are in route from Karen (more on that tomorrow), as well as more goodies from Sandie (who keeps giving and giving), and we have 2 additional team members. A couple, husband and wife I'll introduce tomorrow. Please stayed tuned. (this is piece meal, having some issues with picture and compatibility folks that coupled with my longer than normal work week are delaying things a bit.).
Many thanks Shelly! (9 hats)
I've decided to eliminate our goals, which began in our first year. As hats, scarves, and mittens will be appreciated. All are needed and will be used for the homeless folks under the bridge and or the free clinic based upon need/appropriateness.
These flowers are beautiful, bright and cheery. These are not flowers in my backyard, nor a picture I took; but one in the sample pictures from my new computer. These aren't in my backyard because the weather has turned here in Central Ohio, and flowers are about 98% gone. That never makes me happy because it brings to light the fact people without a roof over their heads will soon be enduring cold, wet miserable Ohio Winters. Together though, we can make a difference in their lives.
On top of the weather turning which to me is also bad news, we received sad news that Rae's mother past a week ago. These Flowers will be our tribute to her in happier times. Rae, though not one of our knitters and crocheters is our connection with these folks under The Bridge. Rae takes our hand knit and crocheted items with her weekly as she takes food to these homeless. Rae on behalf of our entire team, let me express our deepest condolence for your loss.
As in many things in life when one door closes another opens, when bad things happen they're sometimes offset with something positive and good happening. Such is the case here. Today I added 2 new names of team members: Danette and Shelly. I've added links to their blogs and encourage you all to visit and welcome them. I received an email from Danette indicating she had items to donate and needed my address, and Shelly blogged about looking for a good charity and thus we were able to connect. I'm thrilled to have more helping hands, as the cause is great. Shelly has added our badge and blogged about our cause. Many thanks ladies.
I am a DO Follow Blog, and I'm thrilled to have this fabulous list of other DO Follow Blogs: You'll notice I've started deleting blogs from the list (where the blank spaces are). Some of these blogs are no longer do follow, some blogs aren't there anymore, some are re-directs, some are horribly outdated with no new blog posts. Others have comments closed, which certainly defeats the spirit of do follow. I do not wish to give dead blogs, or blogs not really sharing a link. They certainly aren't sharing if comments are closed, or if you have to subscribe before you can leave a comment. As of today, September 5, 2010 I've moved the several groups of blogs to the bottom of the list to give others a chance at the top. I will do this routinely and will note it here by changing the date. **Additionally I've been making my way through the large list of comments deleting those that obviously are just list an url to get the link; those that are obviously spam. If there are some that seem legitimate when I visit their blogs, I will add them to the list, provided they have the badge and list on their page. By adding the badge visitors know they are a DoFollow Blog, and by adding the list; they're sharing the linky love. Everyone can benefit from this; but those trying to get and not give will not get from me. They have been and will continue to be deleted.
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?
