New Helping Hands from Tennessee

 Thank you Florence H from Tennessee, our newest pair of helping hands.  Florence joined our facebook group...so pleased to see the word spreading.  Florence has crocheted scarves and slippers and sent along some razors.  Personal care items are always appreciated.
 Florence sent a another box with more personal care items, toothpaste, brushes, and deodorant...and 6 parkas.  She said she found an unbelievable end of the season sale she couldn't resists.  Won't some cold folks be thrilled to get these warm parkas.  Many thanks and welcome to the group, Florence.  We hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

Let me once again encourage EVERYONE to visit, to read, to stay current with the right size, color etc. of items needed.  Changes happen based on need.  Please stay current so you don't spend time making something that doesn't serve our needs.  AND, please don't be shy.  Post comments, take time and cheer each other on and admire each others work.  We all enjoy that.  It is easy, you do not need to be a blogger to leave a comment.

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?
