Sunshine and Donations from Florida

 Three skeins, red, blue and moss green or sage green.  Never quite sure what to call this shade, but it's a great shade that's nice to have on hand, as it blends in with so many colors.  These 3 skeins came with the goodies below

 from our friend Alexia L in Florida.  She's donating crocheted hats, for men, women, and children and fun crayon colored squares.  Let's keep our friend Alexis in our hearts and minds, as her Arthritis is now keeping her from crocheting.  I know how I would, as would many of you; go through withdraw.  We appreciate your support, and hope you'll continue to visit us here on Bridge and Beyond; even if your hands won't allow you to stitch any longer.  Take Care of yourself, and again many thanks!

If memory serves me right, I have some very similar fun colored squares in my holding area, perhaps I can put them all together and design a cheery afghan with them, if not those in my memory...there will be something...I know.  Stay tuned.

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?
