Donations for Ohio Homeless



Thank you Marjorie M for your on going support of Bridge and Beyond.  I appreciate it and your steadfastness with visiting and commenting on the blog.  Marjorie has crocheted 16 cotton washcloths which I know will be a big hit when their donated to the shelters; along with some personal care items, supplies needed in the meal prep and socks.    The two paisley bags on the right had side of the picture are insulted bags (probably lunch bags?), they can be used in several ways I'm sure for our folks in need.

Keep up the good work Marjorie!

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?
