Helping Hands from The Peach Tree State

crocheted items for homelessJoin me in thanking and welcoming Diana K from Georgia, our newest pair of helping hands. Diana has donated 2 blankets (I think they're woven ?), crocheted scarves and slippers, toothbrushes. I also think the bright scarf on the left side of the photo is woven? Sing out and let us know Diana. You might need to click to enlarge folks to see the draw string style slippers she crocheted. Diana, can you give me an idea what age group these would most likely fit? Thought perhaps your pattern told you? I like to label items and or divide them when I get them ready to be donated to the various locations in need.

If you didn't get to read the lovely note from Becki at Faith Mission, please scroll back to the previous blog post. I'd love everyone who's ever donated to be able to see it. I also think I'm gonna borrow the quote she listed as her favorite....it just seems so very appropriate. "Be The Change you Want to see in the World", I want to put that some place prominent here on the blog.

  2. Oops... "the crochet is LOVELY" sorry for the typo. You may have noticed my signature has changed from 61 to 70 -- I'll blame it on that. And not having my coffee!
    A happy day to all... Sandie now 70

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?
