Crocheted Hats for Homeless in Ohio

Thank you Sandie P, long time supporter of Bridge and Beyond for this wonderful donation of crochet hats.  Special thanks for tagging them with size, that saves so many people so much time; both here at my house and at the various shelters where our crocheted and knitted donations go.  Hint Hint...folks if you've not been tagging hats, mittens, and slippers with size PLEASE do.

Sandie P was I think the first supporter of Bridge and Beyond.  If not the first, she was certainly one of the first.  She and I had worked on a charity making afghans for victims of Katrina........if that gives you an idea how long we've know each other.  

Please keep up the good work Sandie, and know how much we value your long standing support and talented hands.

These 4 hats will warm 4 people in need, many thanks!

**Carol C, come out..come out, wherever you are.  Looking for your email addy, please make contact with me.  Thank you**

I am with Rosemarie, I like the gold one. looks like 4 men will be the lucky recipients. GOD BLESS 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?
