What's Inside Box Number 2 and 3?

 Diana K has been more then busy.   Take a look and you'll see what I mean.  Holly cow, and Wow!!  Above see a purple and green granny square afghan (before I laundered and blocked it), a blue shawl, 4 squares, and 7 cotton washcloths.  Must not let my DD see the purple and green afghan, as those are her favorite colors.  Once laundered and blocked this will make a nice size afghan for a little girl, and or a lapghan size ghan for a teen or adult female.  What lady/girl/woman doesn't like purple and green!  But, wait folks this was only box #1....wanna see what was in box #2?
 Of course you do.  Here then is box #2, crocheted and knitted matching hat and scarf sets.  The light green set is knitted and lighter weight then the others which are all crocheted.  I LOVE the salmon colored one, such a pretty shade.  But...hold on, there's still box #3................
 I'm beginning to wonder if Diana stays up all night...how did you get sooooooooo much done?  This box contains 5 more matching sets (hats and scarves), all crocheted, and 47 cotton washcloths!  The cotton washcloths are stacked up, but if you click the picture to enlarge (which you can always do here on the blog) you'll be able to see the 4 colors.  Because blue and green has always been one of my personal favorite color combinations, I really that pile.  I've used that variegated cotton before as well, and it's quite pretty. 

Thank you, thank you Diana for your wonderful donation, and your on going support, please keep up the good work.

**If you a person who visits the blog, but is shy and hasn't posted comments, let me nudge you a bit.  Why, you might wonder.  Visiting, spending time, and leaving comments helps the blog.  The more visits, the more comments this blog gets; helps it's placement with search engines.  A good placement with search engines is vital in the continued growth of the blog and it's ability to be visible to more people who may be searching for a place to make donations to.  You do not need to be a blogger to leave blog comments.  You need not be concerned about privacy either, you don't need to leave your last name.  I never do within my posts.  Beneath each blog post, you click comment and a white square pops up.  Type your comment there.  Then you click the drop down box which gives you options as to your signature...all you do is type your name (first name and maybe last initial or the state you're from), leave the url space empty if you do not have a blog/webpage, or profile page.  That's it!  Easy Peasy.  I know many of you have donated often over the last several years and have never left a comment.  PLEASE DO!  When you help the blog's placement, we attract more helpers which gives us the ability to reach more people in need.  So you see...it truly does help and is IMPORTANT.  The bonus is, everyone who donates loves to see nice comments about their donations, so please.....stop being shy and let us know you were here by leaving a comment.**

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?
