These teddies are fantastic. Thank you for all these great photos.
I’m very happy to see that the 2 blankets and teddies I sent arrived safely. I bet the teddies were happy to get out of the box and back into fresh air. :)))
They were Joan and said that they couldn’t wait for the picnic.
Thank you for the photos...lovely to see their smiling faces. :))
Estelle's update for this week:
KNIT A SQUARE barn. From March 20 to today...almost there and once again many many thanks to all who have made this possible.
More from Estelle:
So nice to see Ronda at The Barn with Leanne whose hands are never idle
Edith Galitshana and Bongani Makhaya delivering a boot full of lovely blankets. Thank you Edith and Bongani.
Vivienne always smiling and Bongi about to attack a great big parcel of squares.
Lovely Lindiwe sorting away and Nani very busy!
Mabel is on a mission today. She is actually standing counting squares. She has also unpacked all the blankets from the ISO Elderly Group. Well done Mabel that’s back breaking stuff.
Nice to see your smiling face back after all the holidays Athele.
Audrey counting away. We can all count to 35 now in fact we do it in our sleep.
Amazing! It is so nice to see the nearly empty shelves become totally stuffed shelves, ready for the main distribution season.
But then further down we also get to see the tables, absolutely groaning under the stacks of squares and toys, and the full bags in the corner, ready to head out the door. So much work gets accomplished so quickly.
Big smile on my face now!
Sharon your blankets and squares put a great big smile on our faces. Your teddies, lions, butterflies and bunnies etc are amazing. Sometimes it takes awhile to collect the perfect squares to go with them but eventually we get there and hopefully the blankets are to your liking. The children certainly love them. These blankets be they picture themed squares or plain janes from all of our contributors are the most precious gifts they have ever received. Thank you.
Thanks to all of you, Estelle, for taking our individual squares and turning them into beautiful blankets.
Also, thank you for adding a little story to the photos...it just makes me smile with your fun comments.
I am amazed how none of you are fazed by a table full of squares to sort and match....you are all stars!!!!
Great to see the once almost empty shelves full again, looks like magic! I know it is really hard work that does it though! Lovely to see everyone hard at work on keeping the shelves stocked. No doubt there will be many, many blankets marching out the doors soon. Well done everyone!
I am in awe of how those piles of squares turn into beautiful blankets. When you see so many squares it looks impossible. Thanks to ALL the sorting [ counting to 35] volunteers, sewing ladies,men, and Gogos. It is also amzing how many knitters and crocheters there are all around the world, all beavering away with their crochet hooks and knitting needles just for KAS.
It's all so beautiful, all the work of so many hands.
