Off to the post office

This morning when I opened by inbox,  I found an email from Japan Alive saying this..........

I think it would be best to have blankets for children and babies. That way it would be easier and quicker to make (as summer will be here in the next few months)- and very much appreciated as the adults here always want the children to be served first. 

So, today I shall start sewing all our beautiful squares into little blankets, pictures to follow.  


A little later I met up with Jak - a regular contributor to both my other blog and to the blankie pile and she presented these to me..........

Seven wonderfully soft and crochet baby blankets! So snugglerly and warm and ready to be posted off :)

Ooh thank you so much Jak!

Then another look at my inbox and see an email from Esther saying : 

I just came from the post office and there are granny squares from The Netherlands coming your way!

I've blogged about them here and promoted yor wonderful initiative:

You can use the pictures of the squares if you like.

I hope they'll reach you soon and I can't wait to see the blankets that will no doubt will be in good hands with the people of Japan.

Good luck and once again, thank you so much for organising this.

Kind regards,


Just look at these beautiful squares of happiness - 

thank you Esther they are wonderful :)


  1. I'm loving seeing all the squares coming in....they are so pretty! Can't wait to see the blankets you make with them! BTW, be on the look-out for some squares from the state of Virginia.....I'm posting mine off this morning. You can see them on my blog here:

    Feel free to use those pics if you want.

  2. Great news about all the squares arriving; makes the 8 I have ready for you sound a bit thin! But as they say every little helps.

    Jak is such a star contributor too; she deserves a bit of brownie!

  3. Amy - ooh wonderful I will, as soon as I can pop over to your blog and link with pictures, thank you so much!!
