  1. I love when I see a donator time and again. It means they really care about the homeless we have here in Ohio. Thank You

    Very cute Cartoon!

  2. Agree Sherry, thanks for the visit.

  3. Thanks so much for the kind words Sandy! I love Bridge and Beyond and how you manage to run it and do all that you do. You are always so quick with letting me know when my packages have arrived and are always so appreciative of my knitting efforts. I love seeing all the lovely donations and getting to feel like I know all the nice "sisters" who have a heart for those less fortunate. Again thank you Sandy and thank you to all my "sisters" too! Keep your hooks and needles flying!

  4. That is so cute! And certainly does apply to me, too.

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?
