Hitting the jackpot with donations for Ohio's Homeless

hats and scarves for homeless Look at this wonderful donation from Kim in Washington. It's fabulous. Beautifully made hats, and scarves...soft and warm, and a wonderful selection of colors too. Kim is our newest pair of helping hands and is our first person to represent the state of Washington. Or at least our first since I started documenting where people were from on our map. I don't want to overlook if you donated previously and are from the state....please sing out. Love to get everyone properly documented on our map below. If you've not checked out it, please do.

Many thanks Kim for your wonderful donation, we're thrilled to have your helping hands helping us with this sad problem of homeless people, and others in need.

Only 2 days more days folks for squares, our July focus...then onto August were we'll be focused on hats for men. Remember, while we do highlight an item monthly all items are collected all year long...except squares. Squares need to be specific to the month they are highlighted. We have a working calendar above if you'd like to see what's up and coming.

  2. That's a great donation! Sorry I haven't been commenting the past few days Sandy, we didn't have internet for a few days.

    Also, I'm not sure if you sent me a package or not, and it's certainly okay if you haven't, but I haven't received anything yet. I was paranoid that you sent something, it got lost in the mail, and you were thinking I'm being rude by not thanking you for it. =P I am often paranoid about silly things and it's only getting worse during pregnancy.

    On the bright side, hubby starts his new new job on Monday (yes, 2 news, because he already had a new job and then received a better offer for a different one), and if everything works out the way it should I will soon have some yarn money to make some things for Bridge and Beyond!

  5. Thanks Sandy. I just wanted to make sure it didn't get lost in the mail or something, no need to rush though! Hubby starts his job today so hopefully it goes well! It seems that every time he gets a good job something weird happens (like the fire) or they tell him before he starts that they've changed their mind and don't need him anymore. But since he starts today and they haven't cancelled on him yet I'm thinking we might be okay this time! We're both pretty excited because this job is the best job he's ever been offered before and the pay is fantastic after he finishes training.

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.
