Thank you for your understanding.
oh dear are the hats getting out of hand again? must must make up a parcel of squares soon.
Hi Mary, At the beginning of the year or better said "up till now" it looks as if there are too much hats "in stock" in comparison with other items, but one never can guess or estimate what the next month(s) will bring. Maybe next month there are more toys or handwarmers, we don't know. In case there should be too many hats Ronda always knows places where hats are desperately needed.
lets hope! I will go on a toy hunt soon as I know how much the kids love them! A little hunting yesterday has unearthed 18 squares so a parcel will be on its way.
Hurray!!! The toys I sent from London in March got to destination !!!! SUPER HAPPY!! Thanks, Royal Mail !!!
THANKS, ANNEKE !!!
Thank you Diana! Honestly spoken, the credit goes to Ronda for making the squares list and the team for sorting and counting all items:))) Glad to hear that you are happy :)
Knowing that the toys are a few miles closer to reach the children makes me very happy.
Hi Susanne - yes, since last night this has come up when I try to go into the KAS website rather than direct to the Forum. No idea what it means!
This I what I get when I want to open www.knit-a-square.com. I don't know what is going on.
Lesley I checked my excell list (which I can't upload here unfortunately) and saw that 62 squares, 7 hats, 2 pairs of HWs and 8 toys from you are on the list.
My pleasure Lesley
