  2. Christina, nice donation of knitted washcloths and hats for the homeless. Welcome to our group. Rosemarie.

    1. Waving hello Rosemarie, always nice to see you here. Thanks too for the sweet welcome for Christina.

  3. Welcome Christina D! So glad you found this great group. Very nice donation of washcloths and hats. I have the same dish cloth yarn. It make such pretty cloths. The hats will be nice in this cold spell that we are still having. It was 23 at noon here in MI and the low will be 12 tonight. A few snow flakes were in the air last night and this morn. I did see a Robin the 1st part of the week!

    1. Thanks for the visit and comment and for welcoming Christina.

  4. Oh, those are so pretty. They will really brighten up someone's room.

  5. Oh, I hit send without thinking. Sorry. What is the A-Z challenge? I am going to have to look for that cotton combination of colors. I really like it. Sandy, if you don't want people to leave google+ comments, is there a way to eliminate that from the offerings?

    1. I wish there was a way, but if there is I haven't found direction on how to. I really dislike google+ because when people use it I can't click on their name and get to their blog ...it only takes you to the circle page and all that mess and you can see where they've left comments on someone else's blog, but you're really hard pressed to find their blog.

  6. I found the A-Z challenge. http://homelessbridge.blogspot.com/2015/03/elusive-spring-and-z-challenge.html Good job!

    1. Thanks for reading about it, appreciate it.


PLEASE leave your name and url, NOT a profile link, not a google or google plus. Only name and url will take me directly to your blog to return the favor of a comment.

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?
