Sweet Smiles and Warm Heads

I wanted to share this precious picture with you all.  Hats and scarves bring smiles and warmth to Mom and toddler.  This precious pictures was taken at Homeless Families Foundation in front of a cute mural.  We don't often see the folks that wear our knitted or crocheted donations, as privacy is an issue; but knew you all would enjoy seeing this special smile.  While this may only be one person and one picture, please know it represents hundreds....thousands really if you think of the number of years we've been committed to helping those in need.

Thank you all for your big hearts, your dedication and your willingness to share your talents with others.  It's an awesome mission that you all participate in.  Please keep up the good work.

  1. Cold snowy day here in Michigan. The lady and child picture is nice. I hope they are staying warm. My thoughts and prayers go out each day to the homeless.

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?
