In 'my world' the knitted or crocheted square figures prominently. I've sewn donated squares into blankets a number of times and while people keep donating such squares/rectangles, I'll keep sewing them up!
|One I sewed up earlier this year...|
It just so happens that I'm currently surrounded by squares...and loving it! :-) The bags in the photo below are full of knitted squares. They have been given to K4BN by a teacher from a northside school. I brought them home yesterday to begin sewing them into blanket sized rugs.
|I tipped some of the squares out of the pink bag to show how bright and colourful the squares are|
|More squares at my house...|

Last week I got an email from the organiser of K4BN describing the need for warm items. I thought about putting some excerpts from her email in a blog post. However, I think 'Jan Mac' (also a member of K4BN, but who lives in Vic and does an incredible amount of knitting, crocheting and sewing/quilting for needy people) wrote a very eloquent blog post which included excerpts from the same email. Here is Jan's post.
So just at the moment our home has become 'square land'...hopefully it will be 'blanket/rug land' soon. :-)
