Donations from The Volunteer State

Thank youi RoseMarie for your thoughtful donation and your continued support. As always you can tell these are RoseMarie's creations due to signature flowers/decorations. Crocheted slippers, hats, scarves, and squares...a variety pack.

Keep up the good work RoseMarie from the state of Tennessee.

Tennessee has several nick names, it's changed over time. But, the one that probably is best known is in fact The Volunteer State. I rather like that name and since RoseMarie's is in fact volunteering her time and talents...makes sense. However, it got that nickname because it supplied a huge number of volunteers during The War of 1812. In fact Tennessee played a huge role with it's numbers during The Battle of New Orleans. For awhile it was referred to as The Hog and Hominy State (it produced a large amount of obsolete corn and pork products during the 1830's and 1840's).

Thanks to The Civil War they became known as The Butternuts...the color their uniforms. And because of the big bend in The Tennessee River, they've been known as The Big Benders.

  2. So nice! I am still struggling with my crochet so maybe I'll switch back to my knitting loom soon. First I have to finish painting the back porch -- any volunteers??

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?
