Caring and Sharing

Ethines' Blanket

I sponsor a little girl called Ethines who lives in Zambia. I wanted to send her a special gift but I am only allowed to send gifts which will fit into an A5 sized envelope which is not very big. So with the help of Ethines' mother, I am sending Granny squares 10 at a time to her and her mother is teaching her how to stitch them up. I also sent some blunt darning needles. Eventually she will have a nice large blanket to keep her warm, which has been made by us both. So far I have sent 100 4"x4" squares and I think she will need another 100. I hope I manage to see a photo of her with her blanket when it is finished.
