Ronda and Wendy have been producing quite a catalogue of photographs from the recent distributions, rather than post them a few at a time, it was decided to create a discussion page where they could be displayed more speedily so that members might be able to spot their squares, garments or hats earlier! Spotting one of our own creations in Africa really does spur as on to even greater creativity!

Great pictures. It's so nice to see the children with the homemade blankets around them! Makes you smile!
They are all bundled up and look happy to be warm in a blanket! Nice Job!
Such beautiful children and such beautiful blankets. Thanks so much for the photos!
Marvelous photos, Pam. Thanks for setting this up - we can never see too many!
THE ZENZELE STITCHING LADIES - The ladies of the community all crammed into a class room at the church and sang gospel music at the top of their voices while sewing together KAS blankets and enjoying a cup of tea and biscuits. Wendy, Abegail, Zodwa and I decided not to try our talents at rapping with the children and joined the ladies sewing blankets instead.
Pastor (Thomas) from the Randfontein church group has been in touch saying that the 63 extra blanket-packs we took on Saturday 15th had already been stitched up and distributed by the following Thursday !
They want more ... which is fine, but it's MILES away, so we have to make a plan about driving them out there at some stage. Wonderful enthusiasm !!!
Here are some of the lovely photographs of the ladies getting stuck into some serious blanket making!
Wendy really loved this young lady with the beautiful smile!
Wendy having a go!
Some of the completed blankets.
Stitched by Ronda and Wendy!
A lovely community spirit and beautiful blankets coming up !
Beautiful blankets. Love how the community gets behind KAS and helps all they can!
It's incredible to see stunning blankets being created by so many beautiful women from contributions from so many people around the world. If all people could just come together like a blanket!
Love these pictures. So many hands make short work and blankets ready to warm the kids. :D
Just Beautiful. Heartwarming to see the ladies work to put these squares together and the children wrapped in warmth. Love it.
Beautiful words and beautiful photos Pam! Thank you for posting them for us to see. I just love seeing Ronda, Wendy and the other ladies, smiling and creating warmth for the children! And to see those little bodies wrapped in thick, warm blankets of love.....that's what it's all about! XOXO
