Personal Care Packages Donated

Wave hello to our friend, Sarah S. Happy to have you with us again. Sarah has put together some nice personal care packages with combs, soap, socks, toothbrush -paste-floss. Having personal care not only makes one feel better but aids in helping to maintain good health for those who don't have access to doctors. Thank you Sarah S for your on going support. Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

She's also donated 6 crocheted granny style squares. Much appreciated, but a gentle reminder folks to please hold mailing your squares (times, sizes etc. have been revised; check the squares tab for updates). Just need to catch my breathe a bit folks and do some catching up with assembling before I'll be ready to take on more.

**Have you read about the change in square donation policy? If not, please do.
***Have you read about and gotten involved in the latest contest? Not much participation, though the contest was announced on July 1st. I'll be altering it (or maybe doing another one ?) to try to improve participation...please keep checking in. AND, if you're not gotten involved so far....DO IT NOW.

  2. Sarah S. thanks so much for your donation of personal care products! Sometimes we forget how much better we feel when we do a simple thing like brushing our teeth. Now there will be some folks out there who will have the opportunity to know that same feeling, thanks to you!

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?
