More Crochet Squares in their new homes!


I was so excited to receive the May 31st newsletter from the Knit-A-Square charity.
It is always lovingly packed with updates, stories and wonderful squares from around the world coming together into these beautiful blankets for needy children. Sandy does a wonderful job documenting all the love and care from each person who is involved all over the world! Here are all of the back issues for you to enjoy.
I sent off a new batch of squares a few weeks ago and was thrilled to see two of them in blankets being given to families in South Africa!



What a wonderful reminder that even the smallest things we do can make a difference in the lives of others.
Happy Thursday Everyone!
Life is Art... Art is Life!
