Donations from the State of Vermont

Awesome warm crocheted slippers from the skillful hands of Maureen, whom some of you may know as Warrior Librarian over on Rav. I love the variety in size and so appreciate you labeling them what size they are. I know that's appreciated at the various family shelters as well. Maureen has also included a tube of toothpaste and toothbrush. Personal care items are always a bonus, along with 2 scarves.

Maureen hails from the state of New Hampshire.

Many thanks Maureen for your thoughtful donation. Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond, please keep up the good work.

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?
