I have been overwhelmed by your generosity and I have gotten a little behind!
Two new lovely ladies have joined us, Anusha from South Africa and Deborah from Florida.
Stephanie, a high school student from Georgia asked me if knitting squares could count for community service for their Global Connections Club. I said that it certainly could! Stephanie has a group of about 20 teens making squares. Many are just learning to knit! Yay! Thank you Stephanie!
Carol, also from Georgia, got together with 7 other lovely ladies to knit in a group. It's a fantastic idea. Don't they look like they are having fun?! And look at all those squares!
Lynette of Sweet Posy Dreams sent me 14 beautiful squares before Easter (see what I mean about being behind!). Look at the beautiful colors and textures!
Linda sent me these two beautiful sweaters and 4 squares. Aren't they lovely?
My friend Mary Anne sent this gorgeous flower garden of 6 squares!
Rachel sent 5 hats, 1 scarf and 22 squares and 6 pairs of socks.
This includes her 7 year old daughter's first hat! Isn't it beautiful?
|Another amazing flower pattern!|
Finally, for truly overwhelming, Cathy and her daughter Joan, with the help of Joan's Grandmother-in-law, who paid for postage, sent 1 sweater, 1 hat and 123 squares!! Can you imagine?!
Here is a sample of their beautiful work.

This is my latest contribution along with 19 felted squares from an old wool sweater and three old wool scarves.
Are you ready?
Drum roll please...
324 squares !!!
Almost 10 blankets! All your beautiful work will be sewn into 10 blankets for 10 beautiful children to keep them warm through the coming winter. And, we are more than half-way to our goal of 500 squares by June 1st! We will also be sending 1 poncho, 6 pairs of socks, 1 scarf, 3 sweaters, 1 Kascuddle and 63 hats!
You are all extraordinary people!!
Thank you so very much!!
