Strings and Squares

I am finishing off sewing, ready to pack up here in NZ before we fly off on the next part of our trip. 
I managed to make 8 x 10.5" QAYG String blocks for Jan: the ones on the left in more feminine colours, the ones on the right more masculine.

Here are the last 8 crochet Granny squares. I have literally used up every bit of yarn I have here.
I did enjoy popping into the three Charity shops we have in town looking for odds and ends of yarn.
Using all the lovely bright colours, set off against some duller navy, brown and gold colours has been great. Rather like playing with a paint box when I was a little girl. Such fun!

We are shortly going into town so I can mail these to Australia.
Happy sewing and crocheting everyone!,
