Donations from Virginia for Ohio's Homeless

Lovely and thoughtful crocheting from the state of Virginia donated by our newest pair of helping hands, Dorothy M. Thrilled to have you join us Dorothy. Thank you for this thoughtful donations of hats, mittens, slippers, scarves, and rain poncho's. A special thanks for tagging everything and joining your mittens and slippers. That saves me tremendous amounts of time. I do ask everyone to pair their items and label with size. Not only does that help me, but it's helps at the other end as well when things are distributed at the various shelters.

Great color selection here too. Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

Dorothy included a note with her donation that indicated she retired in 2011 and has more to knit and crochet then she did before. She contributes to other charities as well.

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?
