Nothing, Andreja, goes to waste at KAS - it will be used by the Gogos to strenthen the edges of the blankets and provide a lovely looking trim!
Wonderful treasures for the children......the two bears are AMAZING!!
So many goodies to look at ! I read in one of the packages about 60 countries around the world send things over to KAS. It is quite amazing to think of people in all those countries knitting and crocheting and gathering toys for KAS ! We are such a big family.
Love those hug me bears and those parcels being lined up for Waterval and Funda. Lots and lots of lovely raw wool from Croatia too.
Young Karen's Hug Me Bears are gorgeous.

Diane Burns I opened your parcel as well today. Such lovely soft toys for the children. Thank you and a couple of Christmas squares.
Haven't been on the forum since April, so lots of catching up to do. Lovely surprise to see my goodies on here, I loved those two dinosaurs, they were so cuddly!
I try to take photos of what’s happening on opening day. Unfortunately it’s normally what’s going on around my table or which parcel I open. I do try to walk around and get some interesting things that are happening or guests that pop in. I post them on Facebook because l love it when contributors recognize squares, blankets or any item that they have made. I’m grateful that Pam and Linda post my photographs on The Forum. We haven’t started the Christmas blankets yet as the post has been quite slow and now we have just had the strike which is meant to be over. Ronda and Thomas went to collect the post today but there was no post.
A few bits and pieces :
This little darling is Gloria, who is with her teenage mum Amanda in Ronda's brick outbuilding at the back of their property - with Oti helping her Mum get started!
Gloria was born very prematurely in February, weighing around 850 grams,
but now tops the scale at almost 3 kgs and is doing so well, bless her
darling heart. Ronda is not looking forward to the day they will return to Alexandra Township!
The father is, happily, involved and keen on his teeny weeny daughter and hopefully they will make a proper family one day.
