Smiley Faces make me Smile

Personal care items, socks, slippers, and 2 knitted hats from our good friend Yvonne from the state of North Dakota.
AND a darling no sew fleece blanket. How adorable is this! I flipped the corner so you could see the color on the reverse side. This adorable blanket will surely make some little one smile. Who can resist smiling faces after all. Many thanks Yvonne for your on going support of our people in need here in Ohio. The blanket was donated to Project "Welcome Home", and by the time you all read this scheduled post is already keeping a child warm.

  2. Scharlet I make ghans from squares folks donated at certain times, and some elect to make a full ghan themselves. Both are fine and dandy. The ghans go to families as they transision from shelter housing into perm. housing as a house warming gift. Lots more details, click Welcome Home in the right sidebar. You can make almost any size.

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?
