Thank you for your understanding.
Anneke, thank you very much for the November Squares List. I can see that 2 parcels I sent in September have safely arrived. I´d only like to correct Kateřina Matoušková´s address- it´s Žďár nad Sázavou.
Thank you so much for the information Karla. I have changed it in my original document. Maybe more corrections are coming so I will wait a while with uploading a new PDF. xo
Thank you Anneke. And another thing. I´ve mentioned that Ronda had to pay duty for Kateřina´s parcel. If you know her e-mail address I can explain her in Czech what to do next time.
Hi Karla, Thank you so much, very kind of you to take such action. I don't have Kateřina's e-mail address but I will ask Ronda and let you know. xo
Hi Christine, it looks as if we had a big catch up in toys on the Nov list, but there have been a few months when the toy numbers have been well below the other goods. My parcels seem to have all arrived at once in November with 122 teddies and dolls, Sue

Thanks Anneke for keeping us all up to date, we do appreciate your commitment :))
Hi Christine, Thank you so much. All done with love for KAS and all the crafters around the world who made it possible to wrap a child in a blanket, or dress them with a beautiful sweater made a.o. by you. xoxo
thanks soo much for posting the December figures.
i can see that my missing March parcel has now arrived, so all my parcels for the year ane now accounted for. Thanks also for the overall totals for the whole year, it is really impressive.
HI Sandra, Thank you so much. Great for you to see that at the end of the year all your parcels have arrived safely.
It doesn't matter in the slightest - I'm just pleased to see that my parcel arrived safely - but I was rather puzzled as to why my parcel was listed as 20 squares when I haven't sent 20 squares. Then it dawned on me: my blanket was made up of 21 squares joined together with stripes and there's no category for stripes! (although that still doesn't cover the 21st square LOL).
Hi Patricia, when the stripes in your blanket should have been counted as squares, the blanket should have been regarded as having been made of 35 squares, that's what I do when I send a blanket, 40 x 56 inch counts for me as 35 squares. I am afraid that the 21st square you mention will stay a "mystery square" for always :))) xoxo
