RoseMarie Rocks with another Fabulous Donation

crochet donations for homeless
Once again our wonderful friend, RoseMarie's Rocks! Look at her cute cute crocheted donation. She's done her signature crocheted button flower to decorate these cute hat and scarf sets.

This post was suppose to post yesterday, apparently I missed doing something on the scheduled post thingy. Must pay more attention to that in the future. She's donated 5 darling hat and scarf sets, 2 hadbands, 2 pairs of slippers and some soap and face/body cream. I never thought about cream, but think it's a wonderful addition to our personal care packages. Think how dry we all get and our skin's protected. Great idea RoseMarie.

As always thanks for your ongoing support of the cause, your skilled caring hands, and your friendship. Everything is so appreciated.

Hard to believe we're coming so close to the end of the month of August, and our focus of men's hats. Were does time go? We've begun to have some cool spells at night, while still having hot and humid days. Those cool nights, sadly are a reminder of what's to come for our folks in need. So, please keep those crochet hooks, knitting needles, and looms busy busy busy.

Thank you all for your caring.

***Oh my, just went back about 8 posts and correct our hat total, when I looked at this and it said 212, I thought...that's not right, knew you all had made more then that, went back and found where I had typed wrong...it was when I had to keep retyping this everyday while on vacation and using hubby's computer. For some unknown reason it would not let me cut and paste, as I always do when I add the new numbers.***

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!

  2. I keep bigifying that picture to look at those adorable little slippers! I can just imagine the little girl wearing those and looking at how pretty they are and how pretty she will feel and loved. Your gifts will warm more than heads and toes -- they'll warm hearts.

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?
