  1. AnnMarie, nice colors on the washcloths and mittens.Nice donation.

  2. Sandy, that is me I had trouble getting thru on AnnMarie work. I had my name there but it went to anonymous Rosemarie.

    1. Thanks for the visit and supportive comment Rosemarie, I wish I could get these problems that pop up with commenting to go away. They're good for awhile then go bonkers again. I've researched alot about it, and it seems many are having problems, but apparently we bloggers can't do much about it, because it's all random. Thanks for continuing to try.

  3. Thanks so much AnneMarie for the wonderful donation. Beautiful spring colors.I can imagine alot of people are going to be excited about this one. Lots of things needed to stay dry in the spring rains. Very useable things included for everyone.Lots of socks. I love socks

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?
