A Generous Donation From the Sunny State of Florida

 Thank you Sandra R from Florida for this awesome and very caring donation.  You always amaze, not only with knitting and crocheting abilities, but your generosity as well.  Do you ever eat or sleep?  Love the variety of sizes and colors of the hats.......lots of warm heads as a result of your work.
AND special thanks for tagging your hats and mittens with size!  Trying hard to remind everyone to please do that.  You know what size you're making by way of your patterns, all I can do is guess if they're not tagged.  I sometimes try a few things on to get a feel, but...tagging with size is truly the best option.

AND, you all know, if you've been to this blog frequently how excited I get when we get mittens!  Thank you Sandra!  Please keep up the good work.

Folks if you missed yesterday's post, please scroll back so you'll know what I'm talking about when I reference The A-Z Blogging Challenge.  And I'm in need of topics/words that begin with the letters I-X-and Z, since we blog daily in alphabetical order.  Let me know if you ideas that fit the blog.

  1. Sandra, what a beautiful donation. the colors are fantastic, and cant believe how many pieces you included. Just lovely. So many people will be helped in these last days of winter with your kind heart. The weather is improving so nicely, but I would still imagine many of these pieces are deperately needed if you are an outside dweller.GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS AND GOD BLESS YOU. MARJ IN MINNESOTA/53 DEGREES

  2. WOW and WOW, what a wonderful donation Sandra! You have been very busy. Just look at all the hats! So many different colors, something for everyone. The mittens are great also.

    Sandy, I really don't understand the A-Z Challenge. Could you PM me and explain it further.

  4. Nice to see you here Sherry, hope all is well with you. I'll hope over to your blog, haven't done that in awhile to see what you've been up to. If you click on the a-z badge you'll go to the blog with all the information regarding the challenge.

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?
