Excitement for Bridge and Beyond

The above is a picture of a just released new book about crocheting, the healing benefits of it. A fellow blogger, Kathryn Vercillo is the author. She writes a blog, Crochet Concupiscence, that I highly recommend you visit. Please notice she's been added to the blog log here on Bridge and Beyond. (the picture of the book is a live link and will take you to the amazon page where you can order it and read a bit more about the book and Kathryn)

The excitement I wanted to share with you all today is she has listed Bridge and Beyond in her book in the resource section. How cool is that! Naturally I appreciate this, as it gets the word out about what we all do here together as a team. The knitting and crocheting, and the caring that goes on...day after day, stitch after stitch.

I was surprised, and thrilled when she informed me she listed Bridge and Beyond
in her book. What a sweet and thoughtful thing to do. And so, I hope you all pop over and visit her on her blog and add the book to your shopping list. It's not yet in local book stores, but is available on line through Amazon....which is awesome, we can order sitting here in the comfort of our computers chairs, while...we're no doubt crocheting and knitting as we speak, read and write. (to order through amazon click the picture above). AND for you hi-tech Kindle types CLICK HERE

Thank you Kathryn, and best of luck with your book sales.

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?
