Folks, please take time and look around the blog. Some things have moved, some deleted, and some have other changes. I've tried out a couple of new templates and continue to tweak, so need you to spend some time and let me know how things look to you. Are you finding everything?

**Before you mail your donations, PLEASE, recheck to be certain you've included a note that includes your name and email ady at a minimum. This is essential, even if you wish to be anonymous. When donations come with no email ady, I spend large amounts of time searching for you through my emails, my database, my groups, RAV, Facebook etc. PLEASE save me that time and include your name and email ady.**

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. Holey Moley! What a pile of goodies! Wonderful stuff.

  2. AnneMarie, you sure have been busy! WOW 50 washcloths. Awesome.

  3. Way to go Annemarie! No wonder you injured your arm!!!! Wish I was as quick as you!

  4. Awesome! What a blessing.

  5. So, AnneMarie, I'm thinking where you live there must be more than 24 hours in a day, or perhaps you're one of those people who only need 4 hours of sleep a night. How on earth do you get 50 cotton dishcloths made at one time? You must just be an amazing woman!

  6. What a wonderful donation, AnneMarie!

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?
