Good and Bad News to report

orange daisies
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.

  1. First of all I would like to say how sorry I am to hear about the death of Rae's mom. My prayers are with her.
    Second welcome to Danette and Shelly.
    I would like to know how to add the bridge project button to my blog. I've been looking around but haven't figured it out yet.
    Thank you
    Take care

  2. I'm sure Rae will be grateful for the new team members. I talked to Rae today and she is sad, but doing well. She has a strong faith and knows she will see her mother again in heaven. Both Rae and her mom are soldiers for the Lord.

  4. Thanks for the warm welcome. I like to do whatever I can to help others and hope you received my first package. Growing up in Michigan I know how those Winters can be and couldn't imagine not having somewhere warm to lay my head at night. Anything I can do...I will.

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?
