Welcoming More Helping Hands for Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Lizzy S for this sweet and thoughtful donation.  Knitted hats in a variety of sizes and colors, a cute springy scarf (flowers), and 2 gorgeous peacock blue scarves.  I love that color.  When I was a kid and had a fountain pen!!!! I know giving away my age again, lol.  Used to love to buy peacock blue ink, thought I was soooooo cool to have it, instead of regular blue or black.  Oh my, true story.

Lizzy is our newest pair of helping hands.  Always thrilled to have more helping hands.  Welcome to the group Lizzy, hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond and please keep up the good work!

Just 2 more days until the April A-Z Challenge begins, hope all my regular readers will enjoy the slight change of blog posts and welcome to all new readers.  Please leave comments so we know you visited.

    1. Sorry you had trouble again Marj, I so wish whatever changes blogspot made a few months back they would undo. I've tried everything I can think. I've asked for help, and researched it, and everyone just says it happens sporadically.

  5. I like the mixture of colors. They are beautiful and useful at the same tie

  6. Welcome Lizzy! A very nice 1st donation. I also love the peacock blue scarves. Everything looks so warm. It is now 51 here in MI, but very windy. Had some snowflakes flying around late yesterday afternoon.


PLEASE...Leave your name and URL of your blog, NOT Google+ Profile. I'm can't return the favor of a blog visit if you leave Google+ !!!

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?
