Donations to Kick off March

It's March 1st, and yes that is actually sunshine you see in the picture coming from the living room picture window.  It gives us hope that it will warm up and spring will come; though I fear it's still a good while off.  I'm also getting excited to see it stay lighter a little while longer at night.  It was not totally dark the other night around 6 pm...yes here that is something to get excited about.

Thank youj Emily for this wonderful donation, it's greatly appreciated.  What a variety of goodies she sent.  10 cotton washcloths, 2 little sewing kits (the women in the shelters may be able to put those to good use), 6 pair of socks for the ladies, 2 scarves, 12 pairs of socks for the men, and plastic silverware and foam plates.  Rae will use the plastic silverware when she passes out her hot meals on Sat mornings, no doubt the plates will get put to use then as well.

Thank you Emily for your thoughtfulness and please keep up the good work.

*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?
