Donations Make me Smile

 Thank you Denise F, one of our recent contest winners for this thoughtful donation.  Denise crocheted 2 cotton cloths, and a blanket for a wee one, and loomed (knitted) 7 hats for the kiddo's.  As of the writing and scheduling of this post, I can finally say we're in stock up mode........I think.  The weather has finally turned warm, and I think in about 10 days we can even say the threat of frost is past.  What a welcome relief for our folks without roofs over their heads.  We don't stop knitting and crocheting, we continue through out the entire year and store things for all the shelters in order to be ready before the weather turns cold in the fall.

Keep up the good work Denise!

Donations make me smile because I know with each donation, we're taking care of more folks in need.

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?
