Hello!I am so excited!After hearing that you'd run out of soft toys, I put an appeal on our company intranet site.....Well, we have some very generous little children here in England who have kindly donated the toys they have grown out of. They are pleased that their beloved toys are going to another child in Africa. Their Mommies kindly brought them into me and I have collected about 50 .... or could be more ....I haven't actually counted them!... little toys. But that's not all .... the…See More

Hi Mandy,
I have answered your discussion thread but in case it gets buried I'll put it again here:
If you scroll down the Forum categories you will see a blue heading Challenges. The Countdown Challenge is under that and there is a spreadsheet so that you can see your own entry which at the moment says 'Mandy Covington 17 squares' .
Rona would appreciate if you would enter your new total ' I am sending xx squares today so my new total will be 17 + xx' and she will add it to the spreadsheet.
(And if you could, add them to the 2010 Tally [on page 2 of Forum Categories] which is the whole year count - a copy and paste job, and UK Group 2010 Tally, similar.
Glad you're still with us - the numbers are going up steadily.

Hi Mandy
I love your squares - all of them and thank you for putting up the pattern for the heart squares. Apparently the children understand that hearts mean love and appreciate them for that reason.
I am surprised that I have so enjoyed embellishing the squares. I have never done any embroidery or applique and usually just knit stuff into my squares. I didn't think I would have the patience to sew and I don't actually have the materials at the moment but I think I may be buying some. I thought for boys cars, vans, (bikes if I can draw one), boats, trains, planes, animals -I've just finished a pig under a button tree, maybe a monkey, snakes perhaps. I don't think I am going to have time to knit. Anyway, thank you for the inspiration.
