Sharon, thanks for producing another great edition of Snippets. :)))

Thank you for all your time and efforts in creating a great read, Sharon.  :))

Thank you for a bright and cheerful KasSnippets

Thanks for all your hard work, Sharon.  Another great issue of Snips!

Thank you so much for standing in for Glo - another lovely edition Sharon!

Hey - Louise Tidman and I made squares in the same yarn - the mitred square looks so good in space dyed yarn!

Great minds think alike Rebecca! LOL. :))

Thanks Sharon.  Lots of good news.

Thanks for KAS Snippets ... just wanted to say thanks for the hard work involved in compiling it and the thought that goes into it.  I enjoy reading it very much and feel encouraged to see how everyone participates in such a positive way.  Hope you are all keeping well ?  It's FREEZING cold here in SA at the moment, despite the sunshine.  At this altitude the air is thin and the sun is weak and does not provide much warmth.  We are working hard to get blankets and other items out to the children as fast as possible as the night time temperatures drop below freezing in some places. The post was a bit slow coming through in May - which you will notice from the (belated) squarelists - but appears to have picked up in June.

Our thanks to you all for keeping up the good work !!!

Thank you, Sharon, for your efforts in producing another fabulous edition of Snippets! Beautifully laid out, easy to follow, and very interesting and informative.  xo

Another great Snippets; thank you Sharon! Always a lovely read. I did enjoy the special report about the students at Sha Tin College. As a student myself, it all rang true with me!
