Holly Cow Batman, Rectangles!

crocheted rectanglesHolly Batman, look at all those rectangles. These 45 rectangles were crocheted and donated by RoseMarie. The photo isn't spot on with regard to colors. The dark pile that looks like black is dark forest green. Several shades of orange, and several shades of ivory/off white also in the mix. Rose Marie in Tennessee...many thanks for your thoughtful donation. I assure you each and every rectangle will be used for good. Please stay tuned, check back frequently to see how things come together. We're happy to have you join us. It's not possible to have too many helping hands. Hope to see you here on The Bridge frequently.

I've recently learned there are 20 apartments at Faith Mission. This is temporary housing for our homeless mothers and children, as well as abused mothers and children. In either case they arrive often with very little. We've recently added Faith Mission to our Mission. I love the word beyond in our Bridge and Beyond. Beyond encompasses others in need beyond those living under The Bridge.

We'll continue our year long quest of knitting and crocheting hats, mittens, and scarves for homeless in Central Ohio. I'm hoping with the addition of accepting squares via The Give a Square Program, we'll be able to supply warm ghans for those in these temporary homes. It gives them hope, hope for a brighter future. When they move beyond the temporary housing of Faith Mission, they can take the ghan with them as a house warming type gift.

This is, as most are a scheduled post. Since first typing this, there has been some planning. Please pop over to Sandy's Space to see the planning that's already happened utilizing some of these rectangles.

And please remember we've deemed this month, October as Mitten Month. Please read the previous post. AND...check out Beth's Mitten Challenge, details upper right on the blog

  2. Sandy, I wish I lived closer. I'd help you assemble all the wonderful rectangles and squares. Of course I cannot match your eye for color, but my sewing and crocheting fingers would be at the ready.

  3. I appreciate the sentiment Sandie, think how much fun and how much yakking we'd do...on second thought, maybe we wouldn't get much done. lol

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?
