Yes, hopefully this latest postal hiccup will not last too long.  :))

Had to post a parcel today, had so much here that the cupboard was overflowing LOL!  I send my parcels Seamail  so it should take about 6 weeks before it arrives in SA anyway, hopefully the postal problems will be resolved then.  The squares consist of 2 completed blankets (sewn up) and 11 loose squares.

There is: 81 Squares, 1 jumper, 1 beanie, 1 Vest, 9 pairs of Handwarmers, 4 pr socks and 1 book. The parcel was the biggest I have sent so far at just under 2.5kg!

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
