"I always search the charity shops for cheap soft toys, but the last few months have noticed that the prices are rising....but I have found one shop where they are around the 50p to £1 mark, in fact I bought 3 from there yesterday! "
"Hi Gloria. I send parcels to JBAY for their recycling day op shop. They ask for knitting needles and yarn, as knitting is quite popular with the teenage girls in their programme. Last year I organised big collection of…"
"Wait 'til you see the next instalment of Teddies! I've worked my way through all the fuzzy yarn, the chenille yarn, the bobbly yarn... now I'm working on the Sparkly yarn in my stash ... so there will be Bling Teddies early in…"
"Hi Christine, it looks as if we had a big catch up in toys on the Nov list, but there have been a few months when the toy numbers have been well below the other goods. My parcels seem to have all arrived at once in November with…"
You were concerned about the arrival of your parcel and I have just noticed this photo amongst the last batch I received. I haven't been able to match it to a particular blanket at present but at least something has arrived safely. I'll let you know if I find anything else,
Hi Susanne. I see you have already caught up with the news that Ronda wants those of us in the forum to join the squares as they are overwhelmed with squares to join. I have been crocheting them together as it suits me. I put a demo photo on the forum. I lay out 10 and then hold them back to back and crochet a continuous join across the five meeting sides. I have also decided to knit five in one go i.e. knitting a strip. The tails are good for sewing together. I took my off 35 squares worth of tails and knitted 18 fish to add on. Maudie
Hi Susan :) I hope you enjoyed your short stay in Holland, unfortunately the weather was grey and cold. Also I heard that there was a dance festival and a marathon in Amsterdam this weekend, so I hope it was not too overcrowded :))
Next time you visit Holland we hopefully can meet, eat and chat and there is a lot more to see in my tiny country :)
Wish you a good flight to Milan, speak soon, take care.
Hi Susan, I hope you receive this message. It should be great to meet! A lovely surprise that you are in Amsterdam! I live at about 24 miles from Amsterdam. Till when are you here? Where, when can we meet? Anneke :)
I finally got my 1st square for June finished today.....lol. I sent a parcel a couple of days ago, but have quite a few more squares to de-tail and butterfly, then send. Went to our local yarn/fabric/haberdashery store today to find a replacement for my favourite yarn sewing needle (my old favourite has gone missing) and treated myself to a 50gm ball of silvery 'fun fur' yarn ($4) in readiness for July....lol.
I hope you had a GREAT holiday/visit with your family. :))
