"OOOOPS, I keep forgetting to post my squares. Here are my last ones for this theme - three singles, one double.
Bev, thanks for hosting this month. The squares have been great. I always enjoy a theme that brings out my inner child!"
Although 6.5" is smaller than our usual 8" square, I know there are a couple of volunteers in the South African team who are very good at putting blankets of different sized/shaped squares, together and your squares will be…"
"I know someone has probably posted this but there are so many replies to this post, it's a bit to sift through: but thanks for the replies that I know will arrive.

"Here is a technique I have come up with for adding horizontal stretch to Tunisian Crochet ... something you TCers will be able to relate to :) My brother helped me put this video together and I hope you will give this method a try and let me…"
"Yes, that is the one I was referring to, Pam...knew it started with a 'B'....lol....just wasn't sure what letters came after and was in a bit of a hurry to 'get out the door' this morning, or I would have tried to find it.…"

Thanks for a reply!"
Hello Anne, thanks for your message (I wasn't able to send a reply!) re posting photos into discussions - I am using an iPad, so as you say, the usual method won't work for me. At some point I will get to my computer and add my squares to the relevant challenge, so thanks for doing it thus far!
Hi Anne dear. The Pinterst site is stunning, stunning, stunning but I am wondering if you can keep more KAS photos in that top row. e.g. that gorgeous shot of the two children wrapped in love with the words on top '1.9 million etc'. If that could stay at the top it wold be good. You are getting visits to the www site to it is working really well. It is full of stunning photos. Great job. It looks as though anyone can put a photo there I will have a go.
Thanks Anne, Have to say it felt strange knitting a thick woolly jumper when the temperature here was in the late 20's but it is rewarding that a youngster will be cozy & warm in the South African winters:)
Sorry I have taken so long to answer had a family emergency this weekend, hopefully it is now resolved. Anyway, in answer to my small squares, yes, your grandson is only 15 minutes away and would be a great way to send them your way and thank you for your very kind thoughts, however, when talking to one of my Mother's senior neighbors I mentioned what I was doing and she volunteered to sew my squares together and also maybe would like to take part in making squares for Kas.........be nice to have a new recruit.........so thanks again for your help.
