Still working on a box of winter stuff, that will be a little longer I am afraid:) 2 inches of rain here in two hours, and me on the road with my granddaughter heading for bible school instruction.No problem. Has been 90 all week. Gardens love it. 90 again today. HUMID! TAKE CARE EVERYONE.

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?
