Crocheted Donations Always Make Me Smile

Thank you Barbara F for your thoughtful donation of crocheted goodies and personal care items, AND yarn!  Very nice.  We appreciate your on going support and know your donation will be well received.  Barbara was recently on a business trip and saved her soap, shampoo's and lotions etc from her hotel room...that always a nice way to donate personal care items.

Keep up the good work Barbara!

Where does time go folks, goodness the month of June is flying by.  We're still having some cool nights and mornings here, not at all typical for this time of year.  We've spent alot of time opening and closing our windows, putting on fleece until the chills leaves in the morning...so do hope you're all still busy knitting and crocheting.  If you've not yet had a chance to make slippers...there's still time, please check the slipper tab for necessary information.  AND remember you can make slippers other times as well, not just for this month that it's a focus.

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?
