New Helping Hands Makes Special Delivery for Ohio Homeless

 Thank you Laura J from Ohio for this bountiful donation.  Laura is our newest pair of helping hands.  Thrilled to have you join our group.  Special thanks for delivering this to my door.  Hopefully next time we can meet face to face.  I always enjoy that, but my schedule didn't permit it this time round.  Laura has included lots of person care items from lip gloss to shampoo, soap, conditioner, tooth brushes, folding cups, hand sanitizers, mouth wash, lotion, soap containers, toothbrush containers and more.  The folks under the bridge and the shelters are always in need of these items.  Many thanks.  I collected some on my recent travels that I tossed in the collection bag with your goodies.
 She's knitted hats and scarves in many colors and many sizes.  AND she's tagged them with size for children, adult men, and adult women.  Perfect!
 She's also knitted some pretty awesome poncho's with Lion Brand Homespun yarn in some fantastic colors.  Here's one spread out....very lovely.
 Another different colored poncho on left and a beautiful shrug on the right.  Those who receive these will be thrilled not only to be warmer but to wrapped in such lovely creations.
Cotton Crocheted Washcloths, and more personal care items.  Truly a wonderful donation.  There are more poncho's and hats and scarves but, my camera's battery died as I was taking pictures, so it's currently plugged in and I will post more pictures of these poncho's once it's charged.  Please stay tuned.  

Thrilled to have you join us Laura and look forward to seeing you here often on Bridge and Beyond.  Keep up the good work.

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?
