Blanket Coverage Part Two

Seven weeks ago, I posted [Here] about our 2017 Christmas Tree Project. I have been overwhelmed by the response. I've received HUNDREDS of knitted squares... initially from ladies in the church, then from the Craft'n'Coffee group that meets monthly in the Church Hall, and finally little packages of squares in the post from some of you lovely friends who read this blog.[thanks, J and J!]  I am truly grateful for every contribution. Together these squares will make an amazing tree, and afterwards will be sewn into blankets to go out to Romania with volunteers from the Biggin Hill Trust. 
It's been good to have such a variety of shades of green. 
Last Sunday we collected all our shoeboxes, and the larger Family Boxes. So many gifts, lovingly prepared. 
The Trust need more volunteers to help with delivery - and already a number of church members have offered to go [at their own expense] to share in this ministry. 
THANK YOU everyone, for all your kindness. I feel truly privileged to be part of this project, and grateful to God for the thoughtful generosity and willing involvement of such good people.

Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
