Cath Riley replied to Christine Johnson's discussion BLANKET ROOM 2017
"Wow. I think I can see about 10 of mine since the Thursday post. The six boxes I sent arrived a few weeks ago, so that's the reason there are so many. I live seeing them safely arrived and beautifully joined together."

Cath Riley replied to Bev Jeffery's discussion FUNNY AND FANTASTIC
"Well!! I e been telling myself for weeks that I have enough yarn and battling to resist finding more and then I see this. I think must be a 'message' that it's ok to give in to temptation. If only I had the room to store it, but…"

Cath Riley replied to Sharon Fennell's discussion KAS FINANCES - URGENT APPEAL
"Yes and us as well. I don't know what I would do without KAS and I'm sure I am not alone. I just love the fact that it is a direct action group with no 'middlemen' (or women) and everyone does what they can to help the children."

Cath Riley replied to Sharon Fennell's discussion KAS FINANCES - URGENT APPEAL
"I hope so. Mike is very supportive of me and KAS, especially after visiting KAS last year. It's just as well really as our house looks like a wool shop and square warehouse! He draws the line at learning to knit or crochet though!!"

Friends of mine have told me they have received a strange email from me. Some of the names they were sent to are from the forum. If you are one of these names please don't open it and delete it. I HAVE NOT SENT IT AND KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IT.

A few months ago I put a notice in my church's newsletter asking people to make 8inch squares for KAS. To date I have received 720 squares which is great. This was picked up by the local radio station who rang and asked me if I would go on one of their shows to talk about it. How could I refuse to spread the word, even though I was a bit nervous about it? The interview was recorded on Thursday and today was the day it was broadcast and they are giving enquirers my details tomorrow. Who knows… Continue

Achieved mt personal goal

Yesterday I reached my own Table Mountain! Back in April when I started making squares I set myself a target of 10 blankets. I got so carried away with it they were soon done. What next I asked myself! Aim high I said to myself and added a nought. 100 blankets!! Well my house went to rack and ruin and off I went. Then a few months later I said to myself again "by the end of the year", thinking this was a tall order but nothing ventured nothing gained! Well I failed!! I finished the hundredth… Continue

Hi Cath thank you for the welcome i come from Northwich it is a small town with black and white buildings until Chester west decided to re-vamp it we now have an ultra modern leisure center it is soooo ugly looks as if the star treck brigade decided to leave one of their space ships here and it has been dumped right in the middle of our tiny town center.it is green and black wondering if it would have looked better on an industrial estate.never mind thou there worse places than ours.regards Ann Marie.

Hi Cath.

I have just been looking at your latest selection of crocheted squares that Christine has posted in the April theme this morning......gorgeous!!!! My sister, Ros, is in absolute awe of your crocheting speed...as am I.

I was just wondering if you could give me the number of squares that have some variegated in them, so that I can add them to our tally and thermometer, which I will probably update when I get home tonight....we are going to help my son to move house today. Thank you. xo
