Thank you Beth G for Helping The Homeless

Thank you Beth G for this wonderful donation for Ohio's Homeless.  Beth has crocheted scarves,and cotton washcloths and has included socks and personal care items as well.  Even though we have finally warmed up here in Ohio during the days,the nights are still cool, and we still have some of the wet dreary weather difficult for the homeless to contend with; soooooo please don't stop knitting and crocheting folks.  The need does indeed continue through out the year.  And, when we might reach a point where folks are currently in need, we then stock up all the various shelters and Rae, so they are always  prepared.

I want to thank all the new visitors supporting us through their visits and thoughtful comments from The A-Z challenge and am thrilled some of our new friends are busy and knitting and crocheting and or looking to see what they might do to help, either here or in their own areas.  We need to continue to spread the information about the severity of homelessness and spread the news about what can be done throughout our country.

  2. GOOD JOB BETH. all needed items for the homeless. It is a rainy dreary day here today and I am sure any of those items would be welcome by the people who are out in the elements, Not cold out, but a damp chill is sometimes worse then cold especially for those of us with joint problems. Not a weekend for picnics or outdoor celebration here. GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS.marj in minnesota

    1. It's been nice weather wise the last couple of days here, finally Marj...cool nights and sun during the day, but I think we're slated for rain today. We had planned to cookout tonight, Dad's coming for dinner...so we'll see how it goes. Thank you for your visit.

  3. Nice donation Beth! All the items will be nice to have when a person is homeless.
    Have a safe Holiday weekend everyone. Planning on going to the parade on Monday, if it isn't raining. Let's remember and thank the Vets for our freedom.

    1. Hope you're able to go to the parade, and yes let's all remember to think of those who gave all. Don't think there's a parade in our community, but probably one elsewhere.

    2. Yes, I did walk down to see the parade. It was very small. The rain stayed away until this afternoon.
      Hope you were able to have your cookout Sandy.

    1. Thanks for the thoughtful comment Birgit. People really love the hand knit/crocheted cloths. Not just our homeless and those at the shelters, they really are nice to have, and make nice gifts too. Does your Mother in Law still make them for you?

  6. It is wonderful work you're doing. I think I mentioned before that our local Michael's craft store accepts squares that one of their workers then works into patchwork afgans.

  7. Crocheted hand clothes--that's smart.

    I'm sure my blog didn't make a whole lot of sense yesterday. Writers sometimes have a muse to inspire them, but my "Clyde" voice is there to give me a little kick in the pants when I get lazy or anxious. He is an entertaining character.

    1. Thanks for the peek inside, it's nice you have "Clyde". We all need a little help in the right direction from time to time.

      The washcloths are always a HUGE hit.

  9. What a generous donation! I hope you had a nice long Memorial Day Weekend. We had beautiful weather here in Philadelphia. I went to a horse show in the area and then to a barbecue at my daughters.

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?
