Thank you for your lovely warm welcome Diana. I’ve been volunteering at KAS for about four years and have found it to be a weekly joy I look forward to ... the surprise of opening the parcels and being inspired by what I find to join together into the most gorgeous blankets. It is incredible heartwarming and we at KAS are deeply appreciative of communities’ contributions which make this all possible!

bless you and your family

One Love

Hi, Diana .... thanks for pointing out that my latest package with blankets had arrived in South Africa.    I saw them there this time, but often miss them, so I really appreciate the "heads up". 

There were a couple of other photos that featured my blankets, although the text had them slightly misidentified.   One said Barbara Bartlett, and one said Sharon Bartlett.   I had to laugh, because people often misspell or mispronounce our last name, and Bartlett is one of the most common.   But the first name mix up was harder to understand.   I think they must have just unwrapped a package by someone named Barbara.... sure hope she got her proper credit.

The volunteers do so much hard work, and seem to do it with such joy.  It really is a pleasure to see all the photos from South Africa.

Take care, and keep stitching!   sharon

It ´ll be my pleasure to be your friend, Diana. It´s nice to read I have inspired someone with my crocheted/knitted things. I think we inspire each other in many ways. I find very useful when I can only see your  beautiful handwarmers, hats, squares etc. and read  your supportive comments. Thank you very much.

Thank you so much Diana. I am feeling better, it has improved rather well (luckily). xo

She did well. She finished the whole run and shaved almost 20 minutes off her 2015 result. I pledged to donate a dollar for every kilometer se finished, so I owe KAS 42 dollars!!

If your daughter does do the Paris Marathon and wants to spend some time in France, she's welcome to come and stay with us for a while. We live not far from Limoges, about 300 kilometers south of Paris.

Jenny says that she'll do a final marathon in April next year. It's the first Saint Tropez Marathon. I' great because we'll be able to go and see it. After that she'll do semis or relays.

I just love that blue bonnet. It's truly beautiful.

Thinking of you today....My daughter's running the Marathon again. She almost didn't make it to NY. Her plane was delayed and she didn't take off from Nice until 3 hours after the scheduled time and missed her connection in London.  I don't know if she'll find the energy to finish. I hope so.  She's N° 54772.

Thank you Diana for all your kind comments. This truly is a supportive community.

Hats are my favourites to knit most. Good luck with teddy. Very fiddly to sew up and do the face but the end result is worth it to know that a youngster can have someone to love & cuddle:))

Thanks Diana for your lovely praises. I love making  hats,handwarmers & squares and mixing the colours :))

The last online order was from Cut Rate Crafts.   I got Sweet Roll cakes for $3.39 each.   In my local JoAnn's store they are $5.99 unless they have a special sale.  

I have ordered from all sorts of online stores when they have sales, especially if they have colors that aren't available locally.

Silly me, I never thought to check Amazon for yarn.   Must make a mental note to try that in the future.   But for now I have more than enough to keep me going for the next year (or 2 or 3 or ... )

Love the hats you've been making.   Great colors, textures, and those big fluffy pompoms are so fun!   Keep up this beautiful work.

Hi, Diana .... Thanks so much for recognizing my Big Pink Hearts Square.    It was a big square, so it really dominates the blanket, doesn't it?    I just hope the child who gets it feels the love. 

I'm always amazed at how the blankets come together.   They come from all over the world, all different yarns, all different knitters/crocheters, and it all works together.

I just got a new shipment of yarn from an online order ... so there will be more warm blankets in the future!   YEAH!
