Donations from The Empire State

Our good friend Annemarie has done it again! Her skill full hands have crocheted and donated 2 hats, 2 scarves, and 11 pairs of slippers. Annemarie, special thanks for matching and tagging your slipper pairs with the size. That is such a HUGE help not only to me; but to the shelters when they receive them. When I get items like mittens and slippers I can pair them, if they're not...but have to quess what size they are...not knowing what size someone's pattern was. Thanks for your thoughtful donation, your continued support. Please keep up the good work.

Annemarie, you may remember hails from The State of New York, The Empire State. Though there seems to be disagreement on how it got it's nickname; there is a belief it goes way back to George Washington. In the winter of 1784, George Washington was in the state and felt it was the "seat of the empire". Empire in those days meant that it was financially important. Given both The National and The Global importance of New York, seems he was right on the mark.

Hard to believe folks, but this is post #751, which means we're only 149 posts away from hitting 1,000!! I can't believe we'll be hitting the mark so soon and am thrilled about it. Hope you all are too. The higher the number of posts means we've had wonderful donations. Each donation gets it's own post. Often, I have 2 plus weeks of posts in que/scheduled ahead to post. Though not at the moment. This does tend to be the time of year when donations slow down. Perhaps though, you can all gear up to change routine...wink wink, nudge nudge.

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?
