Donation from The Old Dominion State

You might remember I've noted previously that the state of Virginia is The Old Dominion State. It got it's nickname way back because The Common Wealth of Virginia was so loyal to The Royalists during The English Civil War. Like Ohio it's also called The Mother of Presidents, though less frequently. Thank you Gail B, our long time supporter for this thoughtful, and needed donation of cotton washcloths. Gail crocheted her cloths.

Keep up the good work Gail.

Folks we've been able to give a large bag of cotton cloths to 2 of the 3 family shelters, (Faith Mission and Homeless Families Foundation), and will be soon be delivering a 3rd large bag to the 3rd family shelter, The YWCA. Many thanks for all for making the month of April highlighted items such a success.

May's highlighted item was slippers, and we're about to head into June. June's highlighted item is HATS. We need hats for Men, Women, and Children. Details about size, color, and style in the hat tab on the top of the blog.

**Asking that everyone hold onto their squares for awhile. I'll be calling for them to be mailed a bit later. Needing to assemble another bunch to make room. **

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?
