A Donation and Party Time!

A donation and a party! That's right folks. These beautiful crocheted donations comes from my old high school friend, Joy. You've seen me post how we re-connected thanks to Facebook. She recently was in town and so I collected up about 30 folks from our class and we had a mini reunion, a party! What fun everyone had. Here we are having margaritas and telling stories when Joy walks in with this big bag of goodies to donate to Bridge and Beyond.

We had a wonderful time catching up, it's been lots of years since we've seen each other. Sadly, I was too sick to go to the last reunion which was our 40th....3 years ago. True...we'll soon be kicking in high gear to find some more folks to plan for the next reunion.

Thank you Joy for your thoughtful donation of 16 hats, and 5 scarves (3 matching sets) to help the homeless in Ohio. Joy hails from The State of Delaware. Interestedly, Delaware has been given many nicknames. Thomas Jefferson gave it the nickname of The Diamond State, due to it's location on the eastern shore a "jewel" among states. It's also been known as The Small Wonder...no explanation needed there, lol. However, in 2002 it was "officially" given the nickname of The First State..........why? Because it was the first state to ratify The US Constitution.

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?
