Ohio's Homeless Need Your Help

If you've been to this blog before, I'm betting you know who's donation this is.  And if you quessed Rosemary...you'd be right!  She's crocheted and donated a matching hat and scarf with signature decorations, a headband, 2 cotton washcloths, a little crocheted bag (that can hold a bar of soap and or tissues).  She's included some personal care items such as tissues, shampoo, and deodorant.

Thank you Rosemarie.

**I would love it if all of you who donate would visit AND leave comments here on the blog.  I know many of you are shy, or think you can't do it because you're not a blogger, don't know how to do it..........but it is truly very very helpful in the blogs placement with search engines.  Being well placed with search engines is important as it helps us be more visible to those who might be able to lend a hand.  Sooooooooooo PLEASE, don't be shy.  Truly leaving a blog comment is very very easy, and quick.
  1. Click the word Comment right beneath this and all post
  2. Type your comments in the white box
  3. Click the circle the says name and url (if you don't have a blog just leave the url space empty
  4. Click Publish
That's all there is to it.  Everyone loves to hear from others as you admire each others work.  So please, take a few minutes each day, or everyother day and leave some comments.  Scroll back and visit blog posts beyond the current day you're reading.  Every single visit, time spent, and comment helps us keep people warm.  The more people who see our blog, the more potential helping hands we acquire.**

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?
