Non-Skid Slippers Donated

  Thank you Blanca T from Ohio, our newest pair of helping hands.   She and her crochet hook have been very busy, as you can see.  She's crocheted and donated a wide variety of hat colors and sizes.  Check out the black and red toward the left corner.  It's one of those with a bill.  How cute is that!  She's included personal care items which are always needed and appreciated.  A short while back I mentioned she indicated you could make slippers non skid by putting dots of silicone on the bottom.  I turned one of the slippers over so you could see said silicone.    She indicated it was available in hardware stores, to add a few dots and make it dries.

Thanks for the helpful idea and welcome to the group.  We're always happy to have more helping hands.

Folks, if you missed the day before yesterdays post, please scroll back and read.  I've included a graph of how we're doing with each of the items we knit and crochet and donate and compared it to this time last year.

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?
