Warm Scarves Help Ohio's Homeless Stay Warm

Thank you Sandie P for your ongoing and long time support of Bridge and Beyond and Ohio's Homeless.  As I type this post I can say, I'm wearing a wool sweater, the heats  on and we've had our first frost.  Sigh.........the weather has turned cold, and skies have become gray.

This soft and warm scarf will be a definitely plus in keeping someone in need warm.  The color was so close to my carpet color, I decided to toss it on a chair so you would actually be able to see it, lol.  Tan on tan didn't show up well in the first picture I took.  

Please keep up the good work Sandie.  You are very much appreciated.

**For anyone new to the blog, the counting below maybe confusing.  When 2016 began, we started with the number of items donated the previous year and are counting down in hopes of hitting and surpasses the number of items donated last year.**

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?
