Donations from France

This is post #598
donation from FranceHow fitting it seems to me that this post #598 is from Sacha in France! Why? This is the last post in the year 2011, this is post #598 which is an awesome number and a donation from our friend, Sacha in France truly shows how far we've come. The blog has reached many people and therefore been able to help many people. These fabulous hats (11), slippers, and hood/scarf combo are beautifully made. Many many thanks Sacha for your on going support of our cause here in Ohio. I'm so thrilled we've gotten to know each other this past year and look forward to getting to know each other better in the coming year. Sacha and I met over on The Hive (link in sidebar). Sacha sells many of her wares and her own patterns. Please check out her page HERE.

I LOVE her hats with the 2 colors, click to enlarge. The crown is swirled with the funky and funky texture change, then back to a wonderful ribbing.

**There are donations from minnisoda (Liz), Yvonne, Barb-Peggy-Janice and Susan from St. Louis pending as I write this scheduled post. There items have been received and will be counting in the 2011 totals; but as you know there's a new post each day highlighting someone's donation........they are scheduled ahead and therefore their items will appear Next Year (2012)...as will others that come from the time this post was actually written (12-16) and the end of the year.

2011 Donations:

Scarves 472+1=473
Hats 963+9=969
Mittens 258
Socks 333
Squares 852
Rain Ponchos 216
Cotton Washcloths 345
Sweaters/Poncho's 11
Slippers 127+1=128
Afghans 55 (2 sent to our friends at Pine Street)
Misc Items I've not counted misc items like all the personal care items, the neck warmers, head bands, shawl, hot packs, or yarn etc.

**I had hoped by years end to have the state listed by everyone's name; but as you review the lists...many are still un-accounted for. PLEASE folks find your name in one of the 3 lists, bloggers, non-bloggers, and RAV-Facebook, Hive etc profile pages lists and if your name doesn't have a state listed PLEASE leave a comment here so it can be updated. The initial of your last name would also be a wonderful plus. Besides being interesting, this will aid in my bookkeeping of donations. As we've grown and have multiple people with the same or similar name, it's helpful and a time saver to know who's who and where you're from. Thank You!

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?
