Lovely Anne. I thought I would also post this photo on your own page as a memento of our happy time together. I SO enjoyed meeting up again!

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.

Maudie xx

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:)

Hi Anne! Thanks so much! I'll add them all :)))) xoxo

Hello Anne,

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. Nola
