And The Winner is!!!!!!!!!!!!

Many thanks for all who participated in the comment contest. I appreciate the 16 of you visiting, making comments all which help the blog which in turns gives us the ability to help more people in need. I'm thrilled to say from the time the contest started counting the comments of those participating we generated 470 comments! That's awesome. I love seeing you enjoying admiring and encouraging each other that way. I hope many that were coxed into commenting then will continue the habit.

You do not need to be a blogger to make comments. I know many of our non blogging folks who donate are timid and or unsure about making comments. You do not need to join, you do not need to register...you can, and I hope you will make comments. All you do is:
1. Type your comment
2. Click the drop down box that says name and url
3. Type your name, leave the url portion blank
4. Click publish...............

And the winner after plugging numbers in random.org was non other then our long and faithfull friend, Sandie in Louisiana! She went to town folks posting away and gave herself over 80 changes to win. Many thanks Sandie for your long term support, your skillful craft, your support by way of making comments, and your friendship. All are valued.

Sally in NJ did very well also with about 40 chances to win; so I'd like to sweeten the pot a bit.

Sandie will win the generous $40.00 gift card from JoAnn's supplied by a very special lady who wishes to be a secret Santa type. Hugs. AND Sally I'm going to send you some yarn.

Ladies, please email me at sandycrochet@gmail.com to forward your snail ady's. I'd like to get to the post office this week.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!

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?
