Thank you!

Thank you so much to all of you who have been sending beautiful blankets in! They will all make great additions to our baby packs and will be appreciated so much by our new mum’s to be. Huge thanks for the beautiful clothing too! Below are just a few pictures: a sample but, everything donated is very gratefully received.Thank you!




We have been very busy this last few weeks making preparations for our Winter appeal. As always, during the coldest months we will be giving blankets and warm clothing to those most in need. If you are in the UK and wish to donate clothing or other items we need to receive your donations by the end of November to ensure that they reach Algiers in time for when they are needed most. No donation is ever too small….a pair of gloves, a hat or a pair of socks makes the world of difference to someone who is cold with no way of getting warm.


Right now I am busy stitching squares together to make multi coloured wearable blankets! I hope you too have a fun, craft filled October planned!

Mid September

Lots of donations have arrived over the last two weeks including these fabulous baby knits which are just perfect for our baby pack project that helps destitute mothers to be and new mums.



As we are now mid September we are preparing for the fast approaching colder months. All types of warm clothing are really needed and much appreciated. As usual we will also be distributing blankets and for the first time blanket coats- basically long cardigans made from knitted and crocheted squares. Each coat takes 115 5” squares so a donation of even just one square would be a great help.



Thank you so much for all that you do. Have a great week!

A great start to the week

Today I received a package of lovely knitted squares from a lady in Aberdeen, so a big thank you to her!


Squares are so so useful at the moment.  Quite a bit of time is spent matching squares up in terms of size and colour so it is wonderful to get two ‘sets’ of four squares, perfect corners for two blankets!

Remember, squares can be any colour, made from any yarn, any size and can be made using any stitch.   Knitting a whole blanket can become very tedious but knitting a six inch square is much much more manageable and lots of squares add up to babies snuggled up in patchwork blankets!
