Spectacularly Smashing Slippers

LOOK, then click the picture and look again. Remember clicking the picture always makes it larger for you. Spectacularly Smashing Slippers..........I felt like talking with S's, lol But, seriously look at these lovely slippers, so many sizes, so many designs, so many colors. Our good friend and supporter AnneMarie has done it again. Special thanks AnneMarie for attaching the slippers together with a lovely tag indicating size and sex........that's a huge help in getting these to the right people. The 2 pairs of Mary Janes (the blue and pink) are ADORABLE!

Thank you and please keep up the good work.

  6. Sue, have lots of guidelines in the tabs across the top of the page. We don't supply baby items, they tend not to be items that are needed.

  10. Those are great looking! Have you ever made slippers from wool and felted them in the washing machine? I've always wanted to try that - actually, I've always wanted to try slippers - especially when I see nice ones like these.

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?
