Donating Warmth from Florida

Our good friend, Sandie crocheted two scarves and pretty sure she tried to pack some sunshine in the box from Florida along with her thoughtful donation. She's very cooperative like that. Unfortunately, I think the tape wasn't tight enough and sun leaked out. Still though we have these warm crocheted scarves! Many thanks Sandie for your on going support, we appreciate it and your efforts........try harder next time, please and thanks! Seriously folks, the day I wrote and scheduled this post, was bitter. The wind chill was something. I had a hard time holding the car on the road, the wind was so strong. I came home and fixed a nice cup of hot tea. I'm so grateful to have a roof over my head, and so grateful for so many of you that help those that don't.

Please keep up the good work.

Misc Items are not counted individually (such as personal care items, headbands, gators, yarn, wrist warmers/fingerless gloves, footies etc)

Take a look at the 3 lists of helping hands here on the blog, the list of those who donate who have blogs, the list of those who have a facebook, RAV, Hive, Crochetville page who donate, and the list of those who donate who don't blog or have profile pages (and or haven't sent them to me). Are listed? If so, is there a state listed next to your name? If not, please leave a comment telling me what state your from so it can be added to the map. We want you and your state represented. Scroll to the bottom of the blog, take a look at the map. Would love to add to it. Look at the percentage, maybe we can grow it? Did you not find your name on any of the 3 lists, but you've donated? PLEASE take a look at the 4th list...the unidentified donations list. Click on the list and you'll see the blog post where items were received without notes, without my being able to match to someone who blogs, or belongs to one of the groups I do, or someone in my emails. Please help us complete these lists. Maybe, you have a facebook page I don't have listed? Send me your link, maybe you've started blogging after you donated, let's get it added.

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!


  1. Hi Sandie:
    I like how the contrast colors looks, made vibrant scarves.

  2. I like the contrasting colors too! I may have to "steal" that idea to use up some of my yarn scraps; it adds a nice touch, I think.

  3. Very nice donation. The scarves are very pretty.

  4. Just using one dull color is too hard for me! I like lots of color, but I know Sandy said the men liked more subdued tones... so this is my compromise. So sorry that sunshine leaked out ... we still have more than our share down here....
    Hugs to all.. Sandie in sunny FL

  5. Thanks Sandie for the effort with the sunshine as well as your decorative touch with keeping it MANLY

  6. The scarves are very nice. I like the added touch you made.

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?
