Thank you Emily K for your Crocheted Donation to Help Homeless






Thank you Emily K for your on going support of Bridge and Beyond.  Emily has been busy, as you can see with this thoughtful donation of crocheted goodies.  She crocheted 2 hats, a pair of mittens and a pair of slippers.  In addition, she's crocheted 5 kitchen scrunchie.  I am not sure what type of yarn/fiber is used for those scrunchies and or what pattern Emily used, but would like to know.  Looks like a useable item for the welcome packs Homeless Families Foundation puts together when people transition from shelter to their permanent housing situation.  I will try to follow up on this item and let you all know.  I think I'd like some for my own kitchen, how bout. You all?

Please keep up the good work Emily, and know you are appreciated.

**We started the year with the number of items we had donated last year, 2016; and will subtract our donations from that.  Using the end number for 2016 as the goal for the each item.  So, as the year continues you will see numbers decrease.  Our goal is to meet and surpass the number of items donated last year.**

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.

Crochet Donations Warm Homeless

Thank you Barbara F for this wonderful and thoughtful donation of crocheted goodies.  LOVE the stitches you used in these scarves and matching hats.  AND special thanks too for tagging the hats with size.  That is very helpful, and appreciated by me AND the volunteers at the various shelters.  Barbara has also included a nice stash of personal care items.  Looks like our long time supporter of Bridge and Beyond, Barbara F has been traveling and saving up her hotel samples.  Great way to donate.
AND look at this very nice afghan/lapghan.  Blue is a color that works for anyone, male or female.  Very nice detail with the stitch selection and the corner to corner design.  Many thanks Barbara for all you do.  Whomever receives this will be thrilled.

Please keep up the good work and know you make a difference in someone's life.

Thank you!

Crocheted Scarves Help Ohio's Homeless


Thank you Kara T for this thoughtful donation of 4 crocheted scarves.  Two are traditional scarves, and two Infinity Scarves.  All are nicely made, super soft, and nice and warm!!  That's what I call a win win for those who receive these lovely scarves.  Karla your support of Bridge and Beyond is greatly appreciated, by me, by those volunteers at the various shelters, as well as those who will wear your crocheted items.  Even though it's summer here in central Ohio, we've had nights cool enough, I've closed the windows in the house and pulled up a blanket, so our homeless friends are still in need of warm items to help keep themselves warm.

Please keep up the good work, Karla!

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?
