Thank you Florence for this thoughtful donation of personal care items, hats gloves, slippers and crocheted cotton washcloth.  What a nice variety.  I always think what a great addition lip balm is for those in the elements.  Thank you Florence from Tennessee, please keep up the good work.

Hats: 23+2=25
Scarves: 27+1=28
Socks: 4
Afghans: 8
Slippers: 7+1=8
Rain Ponchos: 
Mitten: 1
Cotton Washcloths: 18+1=19
Shawls, Sweaters, Vests, Poncho's, Skirts etc. : 
Misc. Items: include personal care, headbands, hand-warmers, cowls/gators/neckwarners and all meal prep related items, Dolls, associated items, stuffed/crocheted/knitted toys... etc aren't tabulated

Please remember what fibers to avoid folks as you knit and crochet your special donations.  The only thing cotton fiber should be used for is the cotton washcloths.  Cotton isn't warm enough or durable enough for a hat, scarf and other items.  Wool and suede should also be avoided.  Washable wool however is wonderful!  Acrylic of course works for everything.  If you have questions about something, please check with me by using the contact form here on the blog, leaving a comment here on the blog, or emailing me at sandycrochet@gmail.com.

**Stay tuned folks for donations from: Sandy R, Denise M, SSeger, Patricia C, Sally, Karen J, and Barbara F**

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

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?
