On another note the creation of our first community garden is going well! The diggers have been in, a dangerous wall has been pulled down and the local youths are really getting stuck in with helping which is just brilliant.  There is more clearing to be done but, once that is out of the way it’s then on to the fun stuff!

Thank you for making a difference.

Have a great weekend!

Fabulous squares…we are going to start making cushions for the elderly in hospital that are far from family. Most of the hospitals are based in Algiers so it is quite common for patients to be receiving treatment away from the areas in which they live. The cushions will have knitted/crochet squares to the front and fabric to the back. These squares are just perfect!

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.

WARM FOR WINTER APPEAL-page-001

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 visit

A few days ago I had the pleasure of a visit from two of the projects supporters -Isabel and her daughter Freya. They must have had trouble squeezing into the car because with them,  they brought so many bags full of gorgeous, beautiful donations. Hundreds of things and all of them wonderful!

Perfect pastel cardigans above and below, lots and lots of clothes for babies and children 

stationery supplies

Twenty crochet blankets made by Ray

Brightly coloured bootees and jumpers

So, huge thanks are owed to Isabel, Freya, Frances and Ray thank you  so much for continuing to support the project.

Otley knitters

More gorgeous knits from the ladies at Otley knitting group. I just love the idea of diamond patterned patchworks and I think I am going to attempt to make one with some of the wonderful squares that have been donated recently.
