Hi Maureen, surface mail is the best method from the UK, but takes 6 - 8 weeks to arrive. The parcels also have to go via customs as well. Over the years as far as we know only about 10 parcels have gone astray! Also squares are not very tempting for a 'light-fingered' employee. Hope this helps to relax you - we all gone through this process of being 'parcel anxious', but gradually gain confidence. Even when the SA post has had strikes, the goodies always arrive - eventually!
Hi as babies grow they now only hand over blankets that can keep a child warm until they grow up! A blanket is for life not a just a baby ! hence the 5x7 8" square blanket. (40" x 56")
Of if you upsize the the baby blanket pattern to the KAS size that would work?
I think that Ronda gives any baby blankets she receives to a specific hospital in S Africa for their newborn babies (sorry, it has been mentioned on the forum somewhere before, but I can't remember which hospital it is) . They are not normally given in the regular distributions as they are aimed at 3 years + children. Hope this helps. :))
Think it is Baragwanath Hospital Bev.
That is the third biggest hospital in the World (the first 2 are in China). Who would have thought that the largest hospital outside China would be in Soweto?
