Knitted Cotton Washcloths, Always a hit at Homeless Shelters

Thank you Sue S for this wonderful collection of knitted cotton washcloths.  Folks Sue donated these lovely cloths some time back, but somehow the picture didn't get posted.  It got moved to the done file instead of the pending file where I keep pictures of donations needed to be posted.  Argh..Thanks so much Sue for your thoughtful donation, your on going support, and for your diligence.

I LOVE the bright turquoisey one on right side.  What happy colors.  Love to have a dress in those colors.

Keep up the good work Sue.  These cotton cloths get used in several ways by those in shelters, under the bridges, and those moving into their permanent housing situation.

Crocheted Hats and Scarves

Thank you Sandie P for this awesome crocheted donation of hats and a matching scarf.  The scarf is nice and large, large enough to wrap around twice for real warmth!  Hats and scarves, you just can't get enough of these items for the Homeless and others in need.  Even in summer months warm items are needed for those living in the elements at night.  While we're currently experiencing warmer than normal temperatures for this time of year, we've also had some pretty heavy duty rains which can really make someone cold when living out in the elements.

Sandie P has been a long time supporter of Bridge and Beyond.  Thank you Sandie for your on going support and skillful hands.

Please 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?
