Donations aid The Homeless

What a wonderful donation from our friend, Dianne L from California.  A large mound of lip balm (chapstick) which is a good item all year long.  I know how dry and cracked my lips get both from the cold and the sun so those living out in the elements will really appreciate this.  She's included some other personal care items as well.  And 2 lovely matching hat and scarf sets.  Dianne tied the two together...what a great idea.  I half opened the red one so folks could better see your nice work, but left the purple one neatly tied to demonstrate your method.  Really nice way to package your donation.

  2. Thanks for the visit and comment Marj, hope your storms weren't bad last night. We've managed a few days without rain, but like you have had terrific winds during the days, thankfully it lessens at night which I manage is a relief to our homeless friends.

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?
