Mittens for Homeless Hands

 Someone put the music on, cause you know where I am.  Yep...if you've been here before you know I am dancing in the street with glee.  Those who don't want to join me dancing can clap along the side lines.  lol  I LOVE having folks make and donate mittens...cold hands are miserable and mittens aren't something easy for lots of us to make so ...that's why I dance in the street when we get mittens donated.
These lovely mittens for men, women, and children are beautifully knitted from our good friend and long time supporter, Sandra R from the sunny state of Florida.  She has mad mitten knitting skills folks.  How I wish she could come sit next to me and others who want to learn and teach us.

AWESOME donation Sandra, please keep up the good work.  Extra thanks too for tagging and joining every pair with size.  Truly you ROCK!

AND...she packed some sunshine in her box too, how cool is that!
**Please check in daily folks, and remember larger donations are separated in order to have fewer pictures per post, fewer items in a picture so you can see the lovely items better, and to help us with a blog post daily......which you've heard me say repeatedly helps the blogs placement, which in turn helps us reach more helping hands in order to warm more people in need.**

    THANK YOU SANDRA FOR THE BEAUTIFUL MITTENS. didnt get to write yesterday but wanted to make sure you knew that we are so happy to have you in our group, working away down there making mittens which are so needed by the Homeless. We had a blizzard here in Minnesota yeterday and I am sure everyone was looking for mittens. You do it so well. 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?
