Donated Hat and Slippers

Say hello and welcome please to Bonnie R, fellow Ohioan. She's our newest pair of helping hands. One of these days, I look forward to a face to face meet up with Bonnie, as we live near each other. Though with busy schedules she left this nice donation of crocheted slippers and hat on my porch for me. Many thanks Bonnie for the donation and for taking time to make the delivery. Sorry we didn't catch up with each other.

Look how are donations are growing folks. Keep up the good work. Look how are followers numbers are also growing...very cool, and appreciated. Now if I can get a few more of you to quit being shy and chat with us some here on the blog that would be awesome; come on...it's fun, it's easy, and it really helps the blog. You don't have to be a blogger to post a comment. Just type your comment, click the drop down box that says name and url and leave the url space blank. That's it, hit publish and you're done! Everyone loves comments on their hand crafted goodies, so please give it a go. Let us know you were here.

**Contest winners (3 of them), will be posted on March 15th, as the contest runs through the 14th**

Currently those who've donated either slippers or scarves (are 2 highlighted items for the month of February and March) have a chance to win with their names in hat II: Bonnie R., Diana K., Otterbein's Stitches to Share, Sandie in Florida, Gail B., AnneMarie, Trudy S., Wendy H., Paula K., Karen B., Damarys, Sherry K., Kathryn B., Suzy in Ohio, Cheryl S., Patty L., and Shannon P. Remember folks post are written and scheduled to publish in que, so not all names listed here have had their donation yet published...some will show up after the contest; but are included as their items were received before hand. It's not uncommon for us to have a que of a couple of weeks, with a new post each and everyday. Tomorrow the list of those with names in hat III will be posted. Keep checking in.

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?
