Personal Care Items Always Needed at the Shelters

 Thank you Dianne L from California for this thoughtful and always appreciated donation of personal care items.  Dianne has donated lotions, shampoo's, lipbalm and other necessary items.  The personal care items are needed by all the shelters we supply, as well as the folks living under the bridges.  Think how dry your lips and skin get, even when you have a roof over your head and how much these items are appreciated by those in the elements, as well as those getting nights here and there in the shelters.  Thank you Dianne.
Having just gotten back from an out of state wedding followed by some vacation time, I too was able to toss some items in collected from the hotels.

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?
