A Potpourri Donation Helps many

Wonderful donation here from our good friend Marjorie M.  I love the variety.  It's a real potpourri.   Marjorie has crocheted 20 cotton washcloths, an item always well received at all the family shelters we deliver to.  In addition to her hand crafts Marjorie has sent socks for both men and women (Rae will be thrillejd), razors, shaving cream, plastic forks, sandwich size zip-lock bags, and first aid kits.  I never thought of first aid kits but feel these compact items will be greatly appreciated by Rae as she cares for the folks living out in the elements.  Yes, it's close to summer folks, but in the last week we've had horrible fog, nights close to freezing, an abundance of rain, and a couple of days that were hot.  The weather this time of year here in Central Ohio is tough when you're without a roof over your head.

**June is slipper month, be sure to check out the slipper tab above, before you begin knitting and crocheting**

    Must fess up here. The cloths were donated by my sister Kari from WI. I traded her frosty green yarn that she could not find for these cloths which she had made during the early spring snow storms. I added the personal stuff as my part of the project. She made ladies and mens clothes in different sizes. She is a sweetheart. Thank you Kari. Good job.

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?
