Another Sweet Thank You Letter

We received a very nice thank you letter from Avondale Elementary School.  I know no one expects, or needs to be thanked......just knowing you're doing something important and something worthwhile is truly enough; but I do always enjoy sharing with you sweet and kind words.  What you all do with your yarn, your time, your talents is truly appreciated by many.

Keep up the good work!

  1. Thanks again for posting another inspiring letter Sandy. It is so nice to know that my items are put to good use. Plus just another reason to buy more yarn! : )

  2. Thank you Sandy for sharing the letter. I hate to think of children going to school in this cold with no hats or gloves. I am very glad to be part of this group and know that items we send are being used!

  3. Sandy, thanks for sharing this. And a thank you to all who contribute!

  4. I have not had a lot of time for knitting or crocheting, but once I feel better and start it up again, I will definitely remember you - what a wonderful cause and it makes so many people happy. Thank you and bless you for doing this!

  5. Thank you all for your visits, your kind words, and your continued support.

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?
