A Crocheted Christmas Donation

Cheryl S has done it again!  Cheryl you are soooooooooo creative.  This is an awesome gift for one of our families.  A crocheted tree skirt........GORGEOUS, a set of Christmas towels and placemats and Christmas lights!  I truly would not have thought of this but am so glad you did.  Think how special this will be as a Welcome Home Gift for one of the families as they move into permanent housing  from the shelter housing around the holidays.  Every year as they pull out this special Christmas Tree Skirt they'll be reminded of how much someone cared, and wish them well for a bright future.

I'm making notes of some things we might want to do organizationally for next years special holidays.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, AND KEEP THAT CREATIVITY FLOWING !

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?
