Thanks you Gail B for Helping the Homeless


Thank you Gail B, a long time supporter here on Bridge and Beyond for this wonderful donation of crocheted goodies from the heart.  I met Gail folks years ago over on Crochetville, and while I'm no longer active there ( you just can't do it all), she has continued to be a wonderful friend of Bridge and Beyond and Ohio's cold Homeless.  Beautiful scarves, love how they're big enough to truly wrap around and ward off the cold damp elements.

Please keep up the good work Gail!

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.
**I am continuing to visit through the road trip linky and so the list of visitors/commenters by way of the blog log keeps changing.  Some have fallen by the wayside, as often happens after a blog challenge,while others have been added.

  1. THANKS GAIL FOR THE BEAUTIFUL DONATION. I especially like the multicolor red ones. Dont think I have seen that combination before. So pretty. A nice gift whether used now or stock piled for the future. This beautiful summer will not last forever, sadly, and we will be looking for warm items again.Can never get too early a start, and some parts of the country are still in need of warmer things for the cool nights.
    We are going to be in the 80s tomorrow and are looking forward to warm nights thankfully.The rain has been constant here for the last few days though and the grass will soon be knee high to an elephants eye :+))(where did that saying come from?)Always something going on weather related at this time of the year.:+)Hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day and remember the fallen soldiers that keep us free.
    GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS. marj in minnesota

    1. Perfectly said Marj. We're a little cool and damp this, but believe it's suppose to warm up later and rain. Sometime I need to get out and mow, but am not limbered up enough to do it yet. Right you are on now or later and stockpiling, as well as remember those who gave all for our freedoms.

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?
