Girl Scouts do more then Cookies

A while back you may remember our friend Marjorie M from Minnesota's connection to The Girl Scouts.  They've done it again.  The girls crocheted cotton wash cloths and slippers.  Marjorie helped them out by mailing their thoughtful donation and she added personal care items and socks.  For some silly reason, I took 2 pictures of the same thing...the slippers and socks and none of the personal care items and cotton washcloths.  Had a dumb attack apparently when I was photographing.  As you know, posts are written and placed in que and so the items have already been delivered by the time you'll read this post.  I'm working several weeks ahead on posts, so didn't realize in time to take another photograph.  Sorry girls.  I can tell you there were lots of different colors and I was thrilled to see so many of them were manly colors.

Thank you Girl Scouts, and Marjorie. 

*March will focus on afghans and rain poncho's.  In addition to the afghan I assemble (or get help assembling) from your donated squares you can knit and or crochet completed afghans.  You can also make a quilt.  Guideline for colors and size etc can be found in the

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?
