Joy, spreading the word

squares 9 Great crocheted squares with cheery colors from my friend Joy. Joy is an old high school friend of mine. Some time we back we got re-connected on Facebook. I've had the pleasure of working some of her previous squares into afghans for our folks at Faith Mission and look forward to adding these to the mix.

Joy is helping us in a 2nd way too. She's recruited her sister to help knit for the cause. Sweet! Love seeing the word spread, and love getting new helping hands. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post will feature Joy's sister, Mary from PA.

Just popped in to edit this post (since as you know all are written and in que), so I could add a Thank You to Bev. Qualheim. I've added an award from her to this blog. The Humanitarian Award. I hope you all realize this award goes out to each and everyone of you who've knitted, crocheted, sent socks etc for this cause; and Rae for her hand delivery and caring to The Bridge Folks and those at the 2 Free Clinics, and to my Brother Chuck and SIL, Jan for aiding in my delivery of items to those in need. If you click on the badge in the sidebar, you'll be taken to one of Bev's blogs. Bev is well known in knitting, crocheting, and charity circles. Thank You for the award, and thank you to all who've made it possible. This is not a one man show, but a true team effort.

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?
