  1. Great donation No Name from Wyoming. I really like the hats. They look so warm.

  2. I love the fact that some donations come with no names. Their contributions serve others but not themselves. Those no names give but ask nothing in return....

    Of course names are good too!

  3. Nice donation! I love the Buckeye colored hats. I wonder if that was done intentionally or just a coincidence.

  4. I love this donation especially since the some of the colors represent the Buckeye state. Sandy I know you like to thank the donator but I agree with Janet, some people just like to donate without being acknowledged. It probably means a lot to them.

  5. The problem is ladies many join our group because they've been disgruntled from other groups because they never know if their donations have arrived. I can't tell you the number of emails I get from people who tell that. It's not even that I like to thank them here on line. I have no way of telling them their donation even arrived, so they don't know if what they thought they were doing, actually got done. Additionally, I spend hours looking through all my on line groups, through all emails, searching facebook and twitter etc, it takes time that I could be doing other things, so I ask even if they wish to be anonymous here on the blog to put a note in their donations so I don't have to spend all that time looking. This way, I feel like I'm spinning my wheels because I don't know....if they know, their donations made it.

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?
