Up to 59

We are up to 59 if my count is correct. I am hoping to ship some next week or so. I am hoping that I have not set my goal too high. But I have faith and I am hoping to make squares or hats with all the yarn balls I have left out of my skeins. Thanks to mom who hunts the patterns for me. The majority of these are double strand.
Family update: Noah is doing well in school and is seeming to be better at doing his homework for Mom.

These are for the Bridge project.

Let me Give

I do not know how long I'll live ,but while I live. Lord let me give, some comfort to someone in need, by smile, or nod, kind word or deed. And let me do whatever I can to ease things for my fellow man. I want naught but to do my part. To lift a tired or weary heart To change folks frowns to smiles again.Then I will not have lived in vain I'll never care how long I'll live. If I can Give,Give,Give...Author unknown
2 more from Tabi today and two for me, Maybe tomorrow I will try to add the pics. Lets keep up the good work everyone. 58 Total so far and four more working on some.

3 Done today, and more people asking how they can help.

Today started out really well, I got a scarf done in three hours and another in three more hours and finally one more. LOL I know it seems silly but I only work on them during the day not while at home with my wonderful son Noah, He is my world. I have had three more people ask me if I had enough yarn for them too as they wanted to make scarves as well. I was so excited so tomorrow I will be taking alot of yarn to work to hand out to others that feel the need in their hearts do something for others. These are the three I finished today. I hope someone will get some great use out of them. Thanks to all that follow maybe I will post a picture of three more for tomorrow. ( let's hope).

More to add to our total. Thank you ladies......

These are from Ayleen and Tabi, I wouldn't be able to do this without their help. You guys rock. I am going to go through our yarn stash today and see how many more skeins I can get from it. That are appropriate for the cause. Any thought, ideas?  I have also been collecting individual packaged razors, soaps, toothbrushes,toothpaste and things of that nature, as I am sure all items would be appreciated.
