Donating Spring Colors

 Such pretty pretty spring colors, if only it really were spring you'd see me doing a happy dance .  But, surely these pretty spring colored crocheted cotton washcloths will bring a smile to the face of those who receive them.  Click to enlarge the picture.  There aren't two sizes here, I just opened a few so you could see the nice work of our newest pair of helping hands, Dianne L from California.  If you can, look how she tied them.  She's folded them nicely in 4th's and tied them to stay that way.  Make a lovely presentation.  What a clever trick.  I need to remember this the next time I gift a cloth or two.

We're thrilled to have you join us Dianne and hope to see you often on Bridge and Beyond.  Please keep up the good work.

March's focus is quilts and afghans, please see details in tab across the top of the blog.
Please rememeber to always include a note with your donation with your name and email addy.
Please visit the blog often, and please leave comments when you do.  That is helpful to the blogs placement with search engines which helps us attract more helping hands.......giving us the very important ability to help more people in need.  You do not need to be a blogger to leave comments.  Type your comment, click name and url in the drop down box, type in your name and either leave the url space blank or add your facebook profile page url.  Please do not leave anonymous comments.  They do not help the blog, and they most generally end up in the spam folder.

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.
