❤❤ Latest to go and a request❤❤

Remember I mentioned in the last post that I'd received some lovely squares from Aileen? 

 I never managed to take photos of her yummy squares before they were whisked away by Marta to turn into a blanket.  After a bit of to-ing and fro-ing and discussing how best to use Aileen's squares - just look what gorgeousnous Marta has created from the original squares.................


Another scrummily warm blanket was created by Angela's squares and the dedicated piecing out and sewing by Gillian - the autumnal colours are brilliant - unfortunately the only picture I have does it no favours but trust me it looks wonderful :)

A few more cuddly toys are off too -

The lion is such a cute pudding of a toy he was nearly adopted by my boys, the other two are so tactile and fit nicely in little hands - I am sure they will be loved by who ever adopts them :)

These two characters have already gone, again they nearly missed being posted as my Youngest really fancied them - but bless him, he said that although he loved them he knew they were meant for other children who would need them much more. 

Now a request - we have run low of squares and although we as a group are still making squares and blankets we would love  love  love  to have some more - the weather is definitely cooling down and a lot of families are still living in temporary housing and sadly some are still in makeshift shelters - can you imagine living like that and not being able to sleep warmly at night?

Even if you only have a few scraps of yarn left over from your last wip - please think of us and make a square or two!! 

Thank you!!
