Thank you all very much for adding your squares to help boost our total. I have gone back to do a quick tally check and it seems that somewhere along the way we have a miscalculation. Unless I am mistaken (which I may very well be and it wouldn't surprise me one bit!) our actual total is now at ...
However, I would sincerely appreciate it if someone else could double-check my calculation and correct me if I'm wrong :)) Thank you ... xo
Glo, I've just been through all the posts and I have a total of 4232 also if Pam just wanted to add these 8 squares in her photo. The total of 5259 that she found would mean that she added 35 squares. The extra 1000 squares has just been explained by Susanne. We'll soon be back to a 5000 count I hope!
I'm adding 380 squares from my EHPAD retirement home ladies. They weren't all made this year, but lockdown has gien me an opportunity to tail and butterfly!!!!
New total: 4612
The 8 squares pictured Valerie were samples of a batch of 35 - didn't post them all as they were much of a muchness! Please can I leave you to figure out the correct tally as my brain cannot handle the changes!!! I'll post them in a pile in future!
Your calculation of 5259 was correct then according to the total previous to your addition. However that total is 4259 in reality as there had been a previous error which added a non-existant 1000 squares.
Ah well, shame about the 1,000, but thanks Valerie for getting us back on track!!!
The total after adding 35 squares from Pam, instead of only the 8 in the photo was 4259. This means that with my 380 squares, the total should have been 4639 instead of 4612.
So with Amy's 4 square tally, if I'm not mistaken, the total should be:
These are so lovely Valerie. All your ladies work so hard in keeping the children warm. Kuddos to you all!!
I love that sleeping teddy.
