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!

Love the pictures of the baby on someone's back who got the lovely teddy as cute as he is! Thanks to coastlands Sales and Davina. That lady carrying the load on her head seems to have sack of potatoes or something similar. Imagine the weight!
one of those teddies looks like one of my moms - so it made the perilous journey from Scotland to Port Elizabeth!
Great Mary. Exciting for you and the child.
I copied the pic to my mom but she doesn't think its one of hers! I'm surprised I gave her lots of varigated wool at xmas for teddy jumpers... but someone is knitting teddies!
I thought it was onions and they're not light either. I agree Coastland Sales deserves a high five for their generous help and it's so encouraging to hear of groups popping up around the area and donating locally their squares and hats and blankets. Thanks so much for this informative series of photos. What's staying with me is the lovely grins and smiles on the children. They so much need warmth and have so little, our blankets are so crucial for an HIV/AIDS orphan child in South Africa.
Tumi discovered a needy 'girls shelter' in her area and a dozen Jenny Nesbit blankets, which were specifically saved for a smaller group of older children. We will have more photos of the girls later. Tumi is always on the look-out for shelters etc and she is to become a member of the KAS South Africa Board.
What a lovely pair of eyes with a huge giving heart we have for a scout in South Africa. Welcome, Tumi and THANK YOU for finding those needing help so we can reach them!
Lovely to meet you Tumi. I am happy that we were able to help put with the shelter. Thank you for the work that you do.
Wonderful to have you on the South African team, Tumi! Good to meet you, and thank you for all your scouting work!
Harrison's Mom does Beautiful Work! Glad they are going to some needy girls and glad to have someone on the lookout for ones in need.
Wow, how wonderful. Sorry I haven't been on the forum for a while but I am honoured and in tears all at once. Thanks for making me feel special. Hope the girls love their blankets.
