Helping in Mulitple Directions

Wonderful, and creative as always are the donations from our good friend, RoseMarie.  Her signature hats and scarf, tissues, deodorant, cotton washcloths, and 3 adorable little pouches which are sized to hold a soap/klenex pack.  I've packaged both in her cute little pouches before.

And, something special here folks.  The two nice blue skeins of yarn were forwarded for our good friend Sherry K.  Why do I consider this so special?  We come to know one another here on the net, on this blog.  We communicate via pictures of our work, with kind comments about each other's work.  We share patterns and offer helpful advice to one another.  That too me is such a plus.  We all are here to help others, and I think it's special when we support and help each other.  RoseMarie no doubt knew Sherry could use a little help with yarn and so...she rose up to not only help our homeless to help our friend Sherry as well.  Kudos!  At the time of writing this scheduled post, Sherry and I have our heads together to find a time when we'll get to meet face to face...something we're both pretty excited about.

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?
