Special Delivery for the Homeless

 Thank you Nikki S for this cute patch work ghan of many colors.  This is sized nicely for the kiddo's and in bright cherry colors they'll enjoy as well.  Picture is a bit dark folks, sorry......we were having one of those "gray Ohio" days....even with every light on in the basement.  Will get this laundered and blocked.  It's sure to put a smile on the face of the child who receives it.  Each square has interesting and different stitches.  Click to enlarge folks and take a look.
Scarves to warm up those in need, a pair of slippers...dark blue a bit hard to see without enlarging, and a bright green cowl.  Lots of goodies here Nikki, thanks for taking time to make a special delivery to me at work.  Please keep up the good work.

Stay tuned folks, I'll be posting more from Nikki in the coming days.  (wanting to have fewer items in each picture so you all can better see all the wonderful and thoughtful donations, and spreading the pictures out to aid in having a blog post daily........which if you've been reading here lately you know helps the SEO, which in turns helps us attrack more helping hands.........which means we can help more folks in need.

    THANKS NIKKI. good job of bringing some bright colors into the gray days of fall with that bright afghan. I can see it for a teen girl, but am sure there would be many who would appreciate the warmth of this blanket. Also nice slippers and scarves. Keep up the good work and will be anxious to see what else Sandy has in her donation from you. Thanks and 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?
