Squares for Japan

Just a quick post today to let you know about Hawthorn at 11am (who I found through Andrea at Apples and Pears).  Hawthorn is collecting granny squares and will be sewing up blankets to send to Japan's disaster victims.  Thank you, Hawthorn, for coordinating this thoughtful effort.

I'm almost ready to send my squares...

Have a good day :-)


  1. Very nice, Josie! I still need to make mine for Sarah London and the Australian flood victims project she has going. This one would be a good one to contribute to also.

    What pattern did you use for those little red hearts in your sidebar? It's different than the one I have been using. I like those and would like to try that pattern.

  2. Oh they look lovely! Thanks for linking xx

  3. Your squares are lovely, I'm sure they'll be well received.

  4. Hi Josie, thanks for popping by my blog and for your message - this is a great idea and thanks for sharing the link. I am trying to teach myself how to crochet granny squares so maybe this can be an incentive! I love your blog, full of lovely things and pictures... Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Sarah x

  5. Hi Josie, so glad you can help out. How wonderful to receive a handmade blanket after such atrocities. Your squares are really pretty!

  6. Great idea, thanks for sharing!!!

  7. Oh Josie, it's so nice of you to send those granny squares! They're all so beautiful, love the colors you chose, too. That's really helpful and makes warm the receivers! Love and hugs to you, LS, x

  8. What a great thing to be a part of! I'll have to check that out.

  9. Hiya Josie,

    your beautiful grannies arrived with the postie yesterday and have already been sewn into a gorgeous blankie - thank you SO much for them :)

    I've blogged about them today on Kyōyū kyōyū - share and will take more photos soon
    thank you again :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a note. I do enjoy your thoughts!
