Donating Yarn and More

 Thank you Gail B for this thoughtful donation and your on going and long time support of Bridge and Beyond.  We certainly value all you do.  Gail has donated some yarn that will get put to good use and scarves she's crocheted.  Gail's work is always wonderful, and I love how she uses nice dark colors suitable for men or women.
I love the rust and blues together here, they might just stay paired like that to make a ghan?  They might be needed elsewhere, time will tell, but solid rust and variegated rust with the two shades of blue make me see stripes or ripples or...........um.  We shall see what they choose to become.  We all know sometimes the yarn speaks to us, lol.

Many thanks Gail, as always please keep up the good work.

  3. Rosemary I always promote the darker colors, as that's what the homeless prefer, but the brighter colors can be nice for kids when we donate to schools etc. Thanks ladies for your support with visits and sweet comments.

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?
