Thank You, THANK YOU

Some pretty buttercups from my yard for you all on this cold snowy day
yellow buttercupsThe year is coming to an end, it's cold, snowy, gray, damp and cold and in about 12 hours we'll toast The New Year, 2010.

I wanted to pass along a little note from Rae to you all. Rae said the 2 clinics have been thrilled with our donations...and, well here let me pass along that part of her note directly to you.***

We had a Christmas party at each clinic, and I believe the phrase heard the most when people were told that they could choose hats & scarves & mittens for them and their kids/spouses at home was "really, for me?" They were astounded when they found out that total strangers from around the country had hand-made these items just for them. I believe it went a long way in making them feel somehow special, if only for a moment. But I can assure you, they will remember that moment for a while, each time they go out into the cold (or don't get to come in out of the cold) and they have a scarf or a hat or some mittens that one of you has made. I can't tell you how totally awesome I think you all are ... reaching out to people you don't even know. It's truly very sweet!

I'm sure for some those hats, mittens, or scarves were all they got this Christmas and what you do DOES make a difference, one hat, one scarf, one person, and one stitch at a time.

Please keep up the good work with your needles and hooks, TOGETHER WE CAN and DO MAKE a DIFFERENCE

Peace and Happiness to you all
Sandy

  3. End of 2009 was so different for me than 2008. Different better! Continue to remember those less fortunate. We are so blessed to have a roof over our heads and food to eat.

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?
