Crocheted Donations from the Heart Warm those in Need


Barbara F has crocheted and donated hats, scarves and a mobius along with personal care items she collected on a recent trip.  Nice color and size variations on the hats Barbara, many thanks!

She's also included a re-useable swifter cover for me.  Wasn't that sweet!  I wanted to share it with you all.  Click to enlarge the picture, it's the pretty orange in the middle.  Also, you can see the photo of how it works.  Thought I'd share this idea with you all.  If you're busy making gifts for the upcoming holidays and need ideas.......this is a great one.  What a wonderful stocking stuffer it would be.  Need a couple items on hand for a last minute exchange.........why not whip up a couple of these and have them at the read.  Great idea Barbara, many thanks!  I love being environmental friendly so this surely beats buying those packages of cleaner pads to put on, use once and throw away.

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?
