I have been having lots of fun crocheting more squares and rectangles for Knit-A-Square in South Africa and HAP in Maryland.

Each piece will be joined with other peoples' beautiful squares and rectangles to make blankets for needy children and our brave veterans.

Organizations like Kiva.org, HAP, Knit-A-Square and the Mother Bear Project have really shown me that creating something as small as a woven square can make a difference in someone's life.

I really believe it is the small things we do everyday that matter the most.

Have a wonderful day everyone!
