New Helping Hands aid Ohio's Homeless.

Thank you Jen C for this thoughtful donation and for your special delivery, both are greatly appreciated.   Jen is our newest pair of helping hands.  We LOVE having more helping hands and are thrilled to have you join us.  We look forward to seeing you here often on Bridge and Beyond with wonderful skills.  Many thanks!  Please keep up the good work.  Jen has also included some personal care items.

Folks things have been really quiet here on the blog, as I've been working alot more hours and trying to squeeze in lots of walking time to help with the arthritis in my knee.  I'm happy to say it's helping, swelling down and pain level is better; but it does take time and I'm in need of catching up here on Bridge and Beyond and with you all all.

I hope you're all enjoying your summer, and keeping your yarn, hooks and needles close at hand.  Many thanks for all you do to help Ohio's homeless and those in need.  The cause is great.

    GLAD TO SEE WE ARE STILL ON! Sorry about the knee Sandy. Have the same problem. Sounds like we all do. Keep up the good work, it does help.
    Welcome Jen. very nice donation for a first time try. Much appreciated I am sure. Have been off the beam here for awhile due to family situations, but am back now and will get back to work. I know it is needed, and am happy that Jen has been on point to help out in our absense. Thanks again Jen.
    Summer is officially here and if Minnesota doesnt wash off the map in all this rain we should have a lovely summer, My grass and garden are growing like crazy, love the rain and heat. Good times. Have a good one guys.

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?
