From the Sunny State of Florida

 Our good friend Sandie down there in the sunny State of Florida had quite a venture trying to get this box to us.  She and I communicated several times.  The post office really had issues.  Delivered this to the wrong address in another city, then returned it to her.  In the meantime, she kept busy and made a few more things and a month later a new box came to me with 23 loomed hats and a scarf.  Many thanks Sandie for your stick to it-ness.  This isn't the first time the post office has played havoc with our donations.  Though the last time I had such an issue was trying to mail to another Ohio city when we had a contest and I was sending yarn.  It too, took about a month to resolve.  Soooooooo frustrating.

Sandie's hats, as you can are a nice variety of colors and sizes which is awesome.  Keep up the good work Sandie, and next time...could you please pack up some sunshine to add to your box.  Pretty please with sugar on it.

Folks we're into another month, with another focus.  Have you read about April Showers?  Please do, check the sidebar.  Thanks.

  1. Using multiple yarns held together, loomed hats are THE warmest - having done a few in my day, I can tell you that the pictures respresents a whole lot of WARM (and time to make!) and loving generosity. How awesome that someone in sunny Florida would be so giving to those who can't share in her sunshine!

  2. Well said psmflowerlady. The double yarn for loomed hats is perfect!

  3. Another Sandie - how fun! If only we could click and send out our stuff that way, eh? Still must deal with postal services. I've not had many problems, I'm happy to say.

  4. Right you are Sandie, perhaps we need a Sandy's Sandie's club, 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?
