Anne Crochets for the Homeless

crocheted child's mittenLook how adorable these little mittens are! Had to get a close up picture for you. Anne G, our newest member sent a box full of lovely goodies the other day.
hats, scarves, and mittens for homelessHats, hooded scarves, and mittens. You know how excited I get when we get mittens. I bet you can see me clapping! She's got a wonderful selection of colors and lots of different sizes here. I was able to separate hats and mittens for the homeless under the Bridge (adult sizes), and some for the cold kids and Mom's treated at the two clinics. So many beautiful items here to warm and help so many. Anne G, you rock!

There never seems enough time to make as many things as we want or need; but we keep at it one day, one item, one stitch at a time. Remember YOU ALL truly are appreciated and YOU ALL do indeed make a difference.

Thank You, Thank You.
2 hooded scarves, 8 hats, and 15 pairs of mittens.

Many many thanks Anne and welcome to the group. We're happy to have you and your crocheted goodies.

  2. YIPPEE, I agree with you Linda 200%...it's great to see the numbers go up. Yes minimize your postage and send all together it's cheaper that way.

    Thanks

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?
