Christmas was a little earlier this year as Wandi, Themba
and company made several distributions.
Please visit this discussion for all the photos.
We have had a very busy Monthly Theme going on this August.
We have enjoyed hearts, teddies and lots of nature.
Visit this discussion hosted by Marion, and feel the love.
The Barn was closed for one week in August due to a National Holiday. Even with that turn of events the Blanket Cake grew and grew.
There are lots of blankets to delight your eyes in this discussion.
In July, Estelle let us know that The Barn was completely out of Hand-Warmers for any distributions.
Hence we started the Hand-Warmer Challenge. We are trying to get 500 posts for hand-warmers in this discussion to rebuild the inventory. KAS tries to distribute 5,000 blankets every years, and they try to have hand-warmers for every blanket.
The JUNE Squares List is available.
During June we recorded 146 parcels containing 9.466 squares, equal to 270 blankets!
Many other items were received, such as hats, hand-warmers, cuddly toys and other goodies.
PLEASE NOTE that there are still worldwide postal problems,
so maybe your parcel(s) has/have not arrived yet.
~~~~~~A HEARTFELT THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS~~~~~~~
The Barn has been receiving post once again, and some of that post has been traveling for over 12 months. I know hard to believe. The shelves are filling up even though there was a holiday in August.
Read all of Estelle's reports in this discussion.
Children are returning to school and the KAS Shop has Flashcard and Coloring books for digital purchase.

Visit this discussion to share the excitement of moving into a brand new space with lots of room for receiving post, sorting and laughter.
Fabulous Snippets thank you Amy, once again you managed to cover everything that’s going on.
Amy, what a fabulous catch-up this is for me. THANK YOU!! I wasn't aware of the handwarmer shortage and challenge - a super idea.
Thank you, too, for clarification on the single tail vs double tail dilemma that seems to have been floating around for a while (in my world, anyway :) I will definitely pass that along.
7 years in the KAS Barn ... WOW! Time certainly does fly. I often think of the first little shoulders that received the warmth of a KAS blanket - from Ronda's lounge. Hmmmm ... wonder where they are now ... xo
