Thank you Texas for your Donation

A new pair of helping hands from San Antonio, Texas.  Awesome.  Love having new folks and their helping hands join in to help care for Ohio's Homeless.  Linda J. has both knitted and crocheted items here in her donation.  Most of the squares are knitted corner to corner, though there are a few crocheted granny style squares too.  Believe the hat and scarf are both crocheted.

Thank you Linda J, hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.  Welcome to the group.  As a group, we accomplish so much.  Made 2 deliveries last week, and another 2 this am.  Though this post is written and scheduled, so by the time this post is read, perhaps other delivers will be made.

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?
