    GOOD JOB GAIL. excellent gift for this time of year and so appreciated by the folks who live outside I am sure. Had often wondered about sending this kind of gift and now that you have done it I think i will do the same. Hot winter hats are not much fun to make at this time altho still needed. Outside folks do need things that we can also provide from the store. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.Good thinking :+)

  2. Great donation Gail. Personal hygiene items are always needed.

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?
