Thank you Dannie L from Ohio for your Donation

Beautiful flowers above are for Dannie L. from Ohio.  Somehow I don't seem to have the picture of her thoughtful donation.  I have a note and know what she donated; but haven't been able to match it up with any of my photo's.  I don't know if I missed taking one or somehow it got deleted when transferring pictures from my camera to the computer for editing, posting etc.
Thank you Dannie63 (RAV) my note says you donated 11 cotton washcloths and 3 hats.  Many thanks and my sincere apology for no picture.

Edited to say...yippee, Dannie to the rescue.  Sent her a note and she had a picture of the cute hats.  Soooooooo, I am able to share with you.

Thank you Dannie.  I'm particularly drawn to the one with ear flaps, how cute.  Dannie is our newest pair of helping hands.  Thrilled to have you join us.  She's also already been helping to spread the word.  After re-connecting with a friend on facebook who crochets...teaches crocheting, as a matter of fact.  Very cool!  Many thanks Dannie.

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?
