Blogging in Alphabetical Order, Q=Queue, Qualify, & Quality

This graphic, picture has nothing to do with today's blog post, just a little funny I thought I'd share with you all.  Spotted it awhile back on Facebook.

Did you notice the numbers with our afghan goal?  We have officially now pasted the half way mark with our donations!  I'm thrilled to see that and hope we more than meet the goal as it's lower than some of our years.  

I'm currently over half way on an afghan I'm knitting.  Are you working on one?

Today's letter is Q in our blogging in Alphabetical Order.  Q, is never an easy letter.  The last two times through the alphabet, I blogged using the word quilt.  But, today I've chosen Queue, Quality, and Qualify as words that start with the letter Q.

Below is our Queue...of blogs while blogging in alphabetical Order this time round.  If you've not read any of these blog posts; please do take time.  And the only way we know you've visited is to leave a comment.  (hint hint, wink wink).

Quality.  I believe we improve the quality of someone's day when we gift them a warm hat, or scarf, or beautiful afghan.  If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't be continuing with Bridge and Beyond.  I believe you all think the same or you wouldn't spend your valuable time and tremendous skills to knit and crochet for Bridge and Beyond.

Qualify.  One of the problems Homeless people face is knowing what help they might quality for.  Knowing where to go, whom to talk to in order to find out what they might qualify for.  There are out reach programs that carry note cards with names, phone numbers, and addresses of help programs to give to homeless people they encountered to help them in the process.  Sometimes they also provide transportion or bus passes to help those in need.  Think about that, if you needed help tomorrow.....do you know how to find out what you might quality for?  Sadly, a large number of people really don't.  So think about that and add being hungry, sleep deprived and or fearful to the mix.  These are just of what homeless people deal with on a daily basis.

**The counts on our progress bars are current. All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.


  1. That is nice the afghan count is going up. I hope the other counts will continue to rise quickly.

    1. Totally agree with you Sue and as always thanks for your wonderful supportive visits and comments. Truly they are appreciated.

  2. Good point about qualifying. I don't know if I'd know myself where to go. I'd probably have to depend on the kindness of others to help me. I always like to see the counts go up. That's great!

    1. Thanks for the visit and supportive comments Sandie, always appreciated.


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?
