Pretty is as Pretty Does

Special 4th of July Post HERE, if you missed it.

knitted donationsPretty Pretty Pretty! Pretty is as pretty does. Remember that saying? When I was a kid, you heard it all the time. I didn't always understand what adults were talking about then when they said it. I thought pretty only meant if one was attractive, or something was attractive. Wrong! Pretty it is indeed to do for others. Look at all these pretty examples of that, so therefore Susan H from Ohio is pretty in my book. She makes pretty things, she donates them which is pretty and that makes her pretty.

Would you like to be pretty too? Grab some yarn and knit or crochet and then give it to someone you don't know, someone in need. That's all it takes.

Thank you Sue H from Ohio for your thoughtful donation. 5 pair of cute slippers, and 9 cotton cloths.

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?
