A little thread so I can acknowledge people who have sent squares for the Blankets (Magic8ball, Whatevertheweather and Cheeseandgherkins) and also so that folk know their kindness has arrived safely!

Vajazzler (donor) and Rubycon (crafter) [star] [star]

CalRabbit [star]

Soupdragon [star]

Initals MB who did tell me her squares were on their way but I've forgotten the username blush possibly 100years who I know is working to a tight deadline [star]

I have 24 squares already shock which is a 3'x2' blanket all on it's own!

SoupDragon Wed 31-Aug-11 21:03:38

My donor was TimeForCake. I think. Something to do with time and cake anyway blush

BearGryllsBra Mon 05-Sep-11 15:26:11

Oh sorry purple that's my fault, one of those will be mine. I didn't want them to go missing on the way so sent them recorded. There's a surprise for you as well in there so worth going to the PO. smile

Need some energy first, Bear! I'm actually contemplating an afternoon nap shock Camping always makes me tired, then DP kept stopping on the way home because i mentioned I might like to use a clean loo at some point if he was stopping anyway. The trouble was, it took 4 service stations to find one so my attempts to sleep in the car were (kindly) thwarted! Meh, collections office isn't open til tomorrow now anyway, and the bunny like it at his grandparents... zzzzzzzzzzzz
